DHT, which stands for Dihydrotestosterone (5α-Dihydrotestosterone), is a male sex hormone, an androgen. 5α-reductase, an enzyme, synthesizes DHT in the adrenal glands, hair follicles, testes and prostate. Male and female adults can lose hair as a consequence of changes in the metabolism of androgen in the body - men more commonly than women. DHT plays a major role in hair loss.
Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia orandrogenetic alopecia, is caused by the hair follicle's sensitivity to DHT. The follicles miniaturise (shrink), resulting in a shorter lifespan and the abnormal production of hair.
