View Full Version : Where did this come from?

I have over 60 cousins on my mom's side and none of them are balding. My parents and grandparents and paternal uncle all have full heads of hair, even till their deaths. I have a receding hairline and thinning all over my head. Where could i have possibly inherited these genes from? I thought the baldness genes were autosomal dominant? The only possible connection is my father's mother's nephews were all very bald. Is it possible i got those genes?

one other thing, all over my head there are hairs with no pigment but just as long as the others, is this normal miniaturization or something else?
