Receding hairline - anything to do with DHT?

It may or may not. If your receding hairline is due to hairline maturation - which is a normal phenomenon seen in young men, it is not DHT driven. If the receding hairline is from male balding it is DHT driven. DHT inhibitors seem to slow this in young men.
