Here's good for thought ;p : All the men on my mom's side had hair but pretty much everyone on my dad's side (the men) were bald... so I thought I was immune. Around 31, started noticing that my hair was falling out. Went to the doctor and then the dermatologist who told me that the whole X-chromosome thing is an old wives' tale... that it can come from the father's side just as equal. A few years back, I did a DNA test (they are not available now, as far as I know, because of the FDA) that showed I had both balding genes (sadly). Since the diagnosis years back, I've been taking Finasteride, to try to slow the inevitable. The dermatologist says that I won't ever go bald because we caught it early enough, but I do know that my hair is definitely not as strong as it used to be and falls out when you look at it wrong ~o~; . So long story short - if you're worried, keep an eye on your scalp for any changed that seem way out of the norm and try to catch it in time if something does change ;o ... Finasteride is a nasty drug, but if you don't want your head to look like a bowling ball, then it might be worth the jump ;o ~...

Back then, I ended up having to chop off most of my hair and start over because so much had fallen out. I'm trying to grow it out again but I tell you, it is a slow climb out from rock bottom... kind'a depressing compared to what I once had, really ~o~; ~.....
