Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.It seems to me that the hair in front has started to thin. This thinning occurs due to t he increase in the testosterone which cause an increase in DHT. It is DHT which causes an increase in hair fall. DHT causes hair fall in males and is a natural phenomenon.You can slow down hair fall by being gentle to your hair. Pat drying your hair instead of rubbing your hair dry. Also, see a Doctor if you start getting sudden and increased hair loss. Do not take hormone supplements as these will do more harm than good. Hope this helps you.All the best.
