Yeah, I've already tried bald....never again. Everyone was upset, including me. Judging from my father and grandfathers, I have the likelihood of retaining most of my hair for a long time. Why not enjoy it while it's good?

Thanks, now I kind of wish I didn't cave in and let it grow...

Yeah facial hair is not a strong point in my genes, I just keep a shadow.

I believe male pattern baldness is inherited from your mum's side of the family.

I tried to make sense of the genetic explanation I found online and it seems both paternal and maternal sides have input. [In my case both sides of the family have male hair loss so I can't pick sides.] :lol:

at this point, if I could choose, I'd pick the baldness propensity over all the other physical ails I got. but I should be careful what I wish for 'cause I might get that ALSO.

still not a huge concern, my Gido retained like 80% of his hair well into his 80s, but then he got a tumor and the kemo took it...

That's also why I said grandfathers, because I don't believe genetics is ever that one sided.

read someplace that dihydrotestosterone is implicated in middle-aged hair loss.
