What is dihydrotestosterone? DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone synthesized by the enzyme 5α-reductase. The hormone is found in the prostate, testes, adrenal glands and, apparently, hair follicles (the living part of your hair). Although at first we might not notice any obvious connections between DHT and hair loss, it has been proven that androgenic alopecia (also known as male pattern baldness) is most frequently caused by the hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to dihydrotestosterone and/or elevated DHT levels.
