Say the only person in my family with hair loss is my grandpa, but he mostly receded at the front and temples. If I inherited it from him, would I have the same type of hair loss? Also, my hair is nothing like his, it was straight, black and very thick before balding, whereas mine is light and frizzy much more like my other grandpa who had no hair loss.
Answer: The character of your hair is different from a genetic approach than the balding pattern which you may have inherited from your grandfather. If your pattern is the same as his pattern when he was your age, then it is likely that you will have his pattern of balding.
