Why Do Older Men Get Bushy Eyebrows?

Is there a medical answer for why whenever men get older they loose the hair on thier head and thier eyebrows get bushier?

EyebrowsI believe that the explanation of this is related to the effects of DHT. Included are other “benefits” such as:

  1. The appearance of nose hair
  2. The appearance of ear hair
  3. Increase in body hair
  4. A more coarse beard

You can’t just select one of these secondary sex characteristics probably caused by DHT, but I have seen a couple of patients who took finasteride (Propecia) and found that they lost some or all of their chest hair. They did not report the impact on their nose or ear hair, however.
