Male pattern baldness typically begins with a receding hairline, followed by the thinning of hair. In most cases, male pattern baldness is attributed to heredity. Men may inherit male pattern baldness in McLean from either side of the family; however, quite often the genes on the mother’s side of the family are to blame. You can learn why by watching this video. You’ll also learn how hair loss in women may be inherited.

This video explains that one of the most influential genes to cause hair loss is located on the X chromosome, which men inherit from the mother. When a woman inherits female pattern baldness, she might do so because this hair loss gene is located in both X chromosomes. However, it’s important to note that multiple genes may influence hair loss and that external factors can also contribute to the problem. For both men and women, medical hair restoration is an effective choice.
