Hair loss is hereditary, but it’s probably not your dad’s fault. If you’re a male and have been wondering whether you’ll go bald, you should take a long look at the mane atop your maternal grandfather’s head. Men inherit the baldness gene from the X chromosome that they get from their mother. Female baldness is genetically inherited from either the mother’s or father’s side of the family.
Baldness may be influenced by a number of other factors as well, including age, health, diet, hormones, seasonal changes and climate. Trauma, stress and anxiety may also adversely affect hair growth because they can lead to reduced blood and oxygen supply to the scalp, which is essential for maintaining a healthy head of hair.
Will I go bald?
Most men will experience hair loss during their lifetime. In fact, by the age of fifty, more than 85% of men will have significantly thinning hair. If you’ve noticed a receding hairline at the temples and crown of the head, then you likely have male pattern baldness.
Baldness in women, also known as female pattern alopecia, commonly occurs over the entire scalp. However, it can also be localized in the front and top of the scalp. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, nearly 40 percent of women have visible hair loss by the time they are 40.
