You’ve mentioned a few times that stress can increase the rate of balding in those with the genetics for MPB. Is this scientifically proven?
By what mechanism does this happen or is this not known? (i.e does stress increase levels of DHT?)
Stress has been observed by many doctors as a cause contributing to the hair loss equation. Keep in mind that hair loss has other genetic factors that are influenced by environmental factors, and stress is one of the more obvious mechanisms. I do not believe stress increases DHT levels.
