hereditary hair loss, if dht is produced in all men even in men with a full head of hair, then how is it genetic and the main cause of baldness?

Good question: A good, but tough question. If you are genetically predisposed to the early loss of hair then your hair follicles may not be responding to the Dht that is present. Without seeing you it is always possible that your pattern of hair loss is not genetic. Seeing a dermatologist would be your best option to clarify this and if there would be any treatment necessary.

Masturbation doesn't: cause baldness. See a dermatologist for other reasons for early hair loss.
