Dealing with baldness can be very frustrating and we try to make sense of it.
In the process, we invest a lot of different theories about why it’s happening and sadly, most of those theories, especially those passed down via word of mouth are false and just myths.
Here are 5 of them we’ve debunked.
1. You inherit hair loss from your mother
This is one of the most widespread myths. The thing is, you have a chance of going bald even if your mum doesn’t have baldness in her family. The baldness gene is found on the X chromosome which is donated by the woman but there are several other genes scattered across your other chromosomes can also turn you bald.
This means your dad can pass on some of those other baldness genes to you. You have a chance of going bald even if your mom doesn’t have baldness in her family.
