Masturbation related to hair loss

I am 15 years old and desperately need some help/insight. I currently masturbate once a day and have this paranoia that my hair is getting thinner. Would that amount masturbation cause my hair to thin out? I have also read all the stuff on DHT and am curious if it's true, so is it? Or am I just worrying over nothing?

   It might as well, since with regular masturbation, the demand for testosterone would go up and the testes would produce more of it, a portion of which would get converted to DHT, which in turn can reduce the hair, provided it is in your family trait. But you can not do much about it in any way.
