Baldness is generally seen as a sign of sexual power. Even in ancient times. Aristotle was one of them who believed that there was a relation between baldness and being sexually active.
But Are Bald Men More Virile?
The research that has been done by the Royal Hospital of Britain shows that this concept is untrue. In this research, both bald and non-bald men were analyzed and in the end, it has been proved that there is no correlation between going bald and having sexual power.
The Correlation Between Male Sex Hormone, Testosterone and Hair Loss
The reason why most people think bald men have higher libidos is because of a misunderstanding of the definition of male-pattern hair loss, which is also known as androgenic alopecia.
People think bald guys have more testosterone, while male pattern baldness as the reason for losing hair is happening as a result of high Dihydrotestosterone.
Dihydrotestosterone Is Being Produced by an Enzyme Named 5α-reductase, Which Catalyzes the Testosterone to DHT.
As it can be figured out by the name, Dihydrotestosterone contains the famous hormone testosterone. Testosterone is converted into DHT with the help of certain enzymes that get into a chemical reaction with testosterone. So, it can be said that dihydrotestosterone is a byproduct of testosterone.
The converted DHT, will decrease the lifetime of hair follicles and make them smaller. So the receptors of hair follicles cannot resist and fall out.
In summary, the reason behind the male pattern of hair loss is not the high level of testosterone but the level of Dihydrotestosterone which is an inherited condition. The gene can be passed down from one of the parents.
The Bald Man Libido Ain’t No Different from Men with Hair
The hair loss happens when the 5α-reductase enzyme is too much and therefore converting too much testosterone to DHT. Testosterone as the main sexual drive is produced before this process, so all in all being bald is not a sign of having more sexual power!
