Fact or Fiction: Do my Testosterone Levels Actually Contribute to my Hair Loss?

Testosterone Levels and Hair Loss

Even those not experiencing hair loss have heard the rumor. People link testosterone levels to male pattern baldness. Men with high testosterone risk more hair loss. People question this widespread rumor’s accuracy. To grasp the balding process, understand body hormones.

Testosterone, as most people know it, is the type that flows throughout the body and is most free to act. However, this form of testosterone has nothing to do with hair loss. The kind of testosterone linked to hair loss is called Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT.

The body changes testosterone into DHT. It outperforms original testosterone by five times and serves functions in the prostate, skin, and hair follicles. High DHT levels can affect hair follicles and induce hair loss.

Pattern baldness relates more to follicle sensitivity to DHT than its level. That sensitivity is entirely dependent on genetics. The AR gene produces DHT-engaging receptors on hair follicles. If your receptors are sensitive, they will shut off the strand in the presence of even a tiny amount of DHT, causing widespread hair loss.

Because hormonal hair loss is linked to the sensitivity of follicles to DHT, women are susceptible to this kind of balding as well. Although female pattern baldness is less severe, it occurs for the same reasons.

If you’re undergoing this kind of genetic hair loss, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is an excellent way to counteract the process. It’s a highly sophisticated pigmentation process that can either make thinning hair look fuller or perfectly recreate the look of a freshly shaved head. The experts at Hairline Ink have years of experience in this process and are waiting to answer any questions you might have.
