Male pattern hair loss is the commonest form of hair loss in humans and is to a greater extent hereditary. Androgenic alopecia is partially due to the effects of testosterone on hair follicles. Testosterone (male sex hormone) is converted to dihydrotestosterone by the enzyme five alpha reductase. There are two types of this enzyme of which the second type is present in hair roots of the scalp. Those who do not have this enzyme do not, on the whole, suffer from androgenic alopecia.
