Why to men lose hair on the top before the sides of the head? Are the follicles actually different?

In brief: Baldness

Male pattern baldness develops in some men as early as the early 20s.
It is related to androgens, or sex hormones, and results in changes of the follicles to produce very fine hair or none at all beginning at the front and crown of the head.
