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.
