Caffeine also has the ability to inhibit dihydrotestosterone, a form of testosterone that is among the causes of hair loss.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Coffee is making me less masculine?

I've just finished my last cup of coffee ever.

No, testosterone is testosterone, caffiene doesn't inhibit your bodies production of that.

However, in your body, testosterone can be metabolized into dihydrotestosterone, which is the main cause of male pattern baldness because the DHT actually chokes the blood vessels in the hair follicles in the scalp and causes them to die.

Hence why early treatments for baldness like rogaine were topical vasodilators, they were trying to dilate the blood vessles in the scalp to increase blood flow to compensate, and keep the follicles alive.

Viagra was originally researched for the same role, to be a vasodilator to increase blood flow to the scalp.  While it wasn't really effective in it's researched role, the clinical trials discovered it had a very strong unintended side effect of increasing blood flow elsewhere in the body.
