Receding hair lines in boys as young as 18 years of age has become very common. The main reasons are- 1) Excessive and continued production of DHT( Dihydrotestosterone) which is a hormone made out of Androgen. Hence this is also called androgen pattern balding or male pattern balding. 2) Genetic reason 3) Heavy smoking and faulty food habits.
