>dad is balding, as are all his cousins >mom's dad (rip) still had his baby like hairline at 74 >dad's dad literally hasn't lost a single hair and is 84 Could be lucky, could be not so much. Doesn't help that the hair is rare/thin anyway, so with or without it I have not much to win or lose.
>>64624984 >You may have heard the popular myth that hair loss is passed down to men from the mother’s side of the family and to women from their father’s side. These myths travel alongside countless other genetic theories regarding how hair loss may be transmitted from one generation to the next.
>While it is clear that male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, is genetically-based and that common baldness cannot occur without the presence of specific inherited genes, we now know that these genes can be passed to offspring from either parent. What is still unclear is the exact mode of inheritance and the relative importance of each parent.
