Baldness is an extreme situation of hair thinning or hair loss generally on human male or female scalp rather than face and body. The degree of hair loss as well as pattern of the baldness might be different in both sexes; however androgenic alopecia/alopecia androgenetica causes it worldwide. Baldness is quite different from alopecia areata which generally shows patchy hair loss. Alopecia totalis, more extreme form of alopecia areata, shows all hair loss on head while alopecia universalis represents all hair loss on head as well as body too.

The studies regarding role of DHT had not confirmed yet, however it is believed that DHT causes follicular miniaturization, a process in which hair follicles deterioration is started through minimizing the size of hair follicles. The growing phase (Anagen phase) of hair follicles is decrease due to DHT and hair follicles stop producing and maturing hairs in their deep roots which causes reduction in front hairline, thinning of hairs and ultimately baldness.
