Dihydrotestosterone or DHT, an androgen, is the most potent male hormone. It is produced when testosterone and an enzyme called 5α-reductase are synthesized in the prostate, adrenal glands, testes and hair follicles.
DHT is responsible for the development of sexual characteristics during puberty. As men age, dihydrotestosterone has a tendency to be produced more rapidly. The older a man gets, the less DHT is used so it begins to build up in the body.
Among other things, the buildup of DHT causes prostate cancer. It also clogs hair follicles and blocks necessary nutrients which compromises healthy hair growth.
Hair follicles in the back of the head are resistant to DHT which is why elderly men with major hair loss still have a horseshoe of hair in the back of their head. This area is where donor tissue is harvested for a hair transplant. This donor tissue contains hair follicles that have been pre-programmed to stay healthy and are resistant to DHT. After transplantation, they remain permanent unless they were genetically preprogrammed to fall out.
