Frontalis tightening might cause thinning of hair

The following is an email that James sent me on Saturday, January 14, 2017. He gave me permission to publish it. I'm going to reply to it on Monday.
Thanks for all the information you are sharing. I really think your idea of the frontalis muscles becoming too strong is correct and maybe the cause of male pattern balding. I can actually feel the frontalis muscles pulling down on my scalp. The areas where I'm losing hair are the areas that are under more pressure/compression. I can actually feel it. With your info on scalp exercises I can actually differentiate between being relaxed where my scalp becomes up lifted and the compression is released and the drag of the frontalis.
I think hereditary links tie in with head shapes and difference between male and female is men are more muscular and perhaps more tense more due to anger, competing with other males etc.
Have you contacted any scientist on your theory. I really think you maybe right?? Its a shame that no other theories are getting investigated, other than the unexplainable DHT theory they've been on for years with no improvement. Perhaps DHT is getting trapped or they keep seeing DHT in low oxygen environments. DHT lowers as we get older yet people have hair until their 50s then start losing ground, it doesn't add up.
I'm going to continue with your scalp exercises and start getting into the habit of not using my frontalis muscles as much and see if it stops hair loss and If I gain my hair back. Thank you so much, you're making the world a better place, James.
