Although there are many reasons for the hair loss, genetic factors come first. In the hair loss with genetic roots 5-Alpha Reductase which turns testosterone into dihydrotestosterone plays an important role.
The more the rate of testosterone to the Dyhydrotestosterone, the faster the hair loss process happens. So male type hair loss is not about the testosterone amount of the person but about in which level DHT is produced. Dihydrotestosterone shows its effect by connecting androgen receptors on the hair roots. DHT causes the shortening of the lifecycle of the hair roots, in every cycle the hair becomes weaker and as the process repeats the hair loss becomes more common.
Although everybody has the hormones and enzyme causing hair loss, in some people hair loss is seen, in some it is not. The reason for this difference could be explained like this:
The numbers of the androgen receiptors in the scalp of the patients experiencing male type of hair loss is above normal. The more the rate of testosterone to the dyhydrotestosteron, the faster the hair loss process happens. So male type hair loss is not about the testosterone amount of the person but about in which level DHT is produced.It is known that the development of the hair is determined before birth. The reason for the hair loss is the genetic sensibility of the hair follicles against DHT.
Although the main reason for the hair loss with the young people is androgenic hair loss, deficient nutrition of the elements such as protein, vitamin, metals, aminoasid, stress, inconvenient environment conditions, different diseases or medical treatments accelerate the emerging of the problem among the young people. The hair loss seen among young people requires a different treatment than others because there are two main specialities of hair loss at young age which is different than other.
The regions where hair grows consistently (back and sides of the hair) did not gain consistency in respect to hair loss. (For this reason any attempt for hair transplantation should be postponed.)

As hair losing starts early, with time in large scale it is highly possible that it causes rarefaction. (For this reason it is necessary to handle the mentioned situation on time.)
