DHT is the more active form of testosterone and is 5 times stronger in effect than normal testosterone. Hair plucked from male scalp test positive for DHT. During the hair cycle of growth and shrdding, DHT miniaturises the follicles size. Which means, your hair gets shorter and thinner since DHT affects the normal growth hair cycle.
