I’m a guy in my late twenties. I want to know why I am going bald if my mom’s dad has a full head of hair at the age of 76. I’ve always heard that hair loss is inherited from your mom’s side of the family.
Although genetic balding is commonly believed to be passed down from the mother’s side, this is just one of many popular hair loss myths. The truth is that androgenic alopecia can be passed down from either side or even from both sides of the family.
Furthermore, the hair loss gene can skip generations or even affect a single child from group of siblings. In other words, in younger men, it’s just not that easy to predict why or when male pattern baldness may strike.
If you’re serious about treating thinning hair, I recommend consulting with a dermatologist specializing in hair loss or with a skilled and experienced hair restoration physician. Your doctor may recommend the clinically proven and FDA approved medical hair loss treatments [/tag]Propecia[/tag] ([/tag]finasteride[/tag]) and [/tag]Rogaine[/tag] ([/tag]minoxidil[/tag])
The earlier you start using hair loss drugs, the better chance you have to retain and even regrow hair.
