View Full Version : About genes and hairloss

Hi, my brother has really thin hair. He has a full beard and lots of body hair.
I'm the opposite, I have the typical "hairless asian" body. I can grow a mustache and some hair on my chin but that's it. I have a full head of hair.

The twist is, my brother is TWO years younger than me. No one ever believes at first sight that we're brothers, let alone me being the older one.

My question is, anyone in a similar situation? Did you start to go bald eventually aswell?

genetic variation can be great among siblings. Sometimes you will see two brothers that look almost nothing alike. Sometimes you will see two that look almost identical, but differ drastically in a couple of areas. Yes, it is a possibility that your brother expresses the "baldness genes" and you do not. The only thing you can do is monitor your hair loss over the years and if you see thinning, consider treatment.
