Everyone is different. For hair transplants, sometimes the crown grows slower than the front, sometimes it is the other way. For drugs like finasteride or minoxidil, again there is no rule.
There is a process called Apoptosis, the death of a hair cell in this case, is genetic and timed by the number of cycles it has in its lifetime. If your biologic clock dictates early death of some or all of the crown hairs and not the frontal hairs, then clearly, the drugs will work less well on the crown. The reverse is also true.
