well my undersetanding is just androgens and estrogens play antagonistic roles. on the scalp, androgens cause immune system activation/inflammation and i think direct apoptotic pathyways to be activated, shrinking follicles, shortening growth phase, causing fibrosis, etc. estrogen receptor activation is opposite and is protective. on most of the rest of the body, the reverse is true: androgens turn vellus hair ('peach fuzz') into real hair, promotes growth, and estrogens shrink.
