What is the effect of DHT on sebaceous glands? So type-1 5AR is found in sebaceous glands primarily, does inhibiting type-1 5AR make sebaceous glands produce less sebum?

Sebum is basically oil, it lubricates the hair, excessive of sebum is not good, but what if inhibiting type-1 5AR also prevent the sebaceous glands from producing normal amount of oil to lubricate the hair? Will this thus lead to hair loss?
