Baldness is a common condition among millions of men and women alike. Sometimes, it’s caused by something you did yourself – like failing to take care of your hair and scalp and perhaps this caused an infection. Other times it’s caused by a disease, but mostly it’s been given to you through your DNA, your genes. If you’re wondering how genetics plays a role in hair loss, keep reading!
When you’re born, a lot of your looks are already decided from genes that you get from your parents. For instance, it’s already been decided whether you’re going to be a boy or a girl, whether you’ll have freckles, and yes, even if you’re going to suffer from hair loss. A common saying is that you get your hair loss pattern from your mother’s side of the family – but this is only partially true. Yes, your mother’s side of the family does contribute to your hair loss pattern – if you have one – but your father’s side of the family plays just as much of a role. It’s the combination of the two which eventually decides how you’ll turn out. The cells don’t pick out which part of the father or mother they want to use when they’re joining together.
What age will I be if I go bald?
Most men and women experience hair loss from their early twenties. This doesn’t mean that everyone starts going bald in their twenties. A lot of the time we’re talking about simply losing a few strands of hair daily here and there and barely even noticeable to the untrained eye. Unfortunately, up to 40% of both men and women will experience a less subtle way of losing their hair until it starts to become obvious that the hair is thinning.
Thinner and more fragile hair
For women, this could mean that the hair can’t grow as long as it did before, and it will become thinner and more fragile. For men, this could mean that you start noticing patches on your scalp which weren’t there before – bald patches. It often starts in the front and works it’s way to the back, but it could just as easily start in the middle. Regardless of the sex, eventually the hair will stop growing entirely on certain parts or on all of the scalp.
Hair Loss Linked to Testosterone
A lot of people believe that hair loss is related to the amount of testosterone in your blood. It’s not always as simple as that though. Yes, testosterone plays a part in hair loss, but it’s not the cause of it. One of the decisive factors is how sensitive your hair follicles are and if they are very sensitive when interacting with testosterone, this can trigger hair loss. Of course, other genes in the body could also play a part in contributing to hair loss, but most research so far has been on testosterone and it’s effect.
