Would I have a less chance of going bald if I have coarse hair rather than fine hair? (cause I have thick coarse hair, like my non bald dad)

Would I have a less chance of going bald if I have coarse hair rather than fine hair? (cause I have thick coarse hair, like my non bald dad)

This may surprise: There is a sort of baldness that is inherited from the mother - even though she doesn't show it even as thin hair. It still runs through the x chromosome to her children and it shows in the male children as a type of pattern baldness. But yes. Having a father you describe and being as you describe yourself - you are not likely to go bald. Just don't bet your life on it. ;-). ...Read more

I have a couple of strands of dark coarse hair growing randomly from my neck. Is this a hormonal problem maybe? Who should I go to to get rid of this?

I have a couple of strands of dark coarse hair growing randomly from my neck. Is this a hormonal problem maybe? Who should I go to to get rid of this?

Sounds normal: Two hairs growing randomly on any area of skin is probably still "normal" because humans are far from perfect. Sometimes there's a couple of out-of-control hair follicles here and there. If there is anything unusual at the surface, a dermatologist can check with a magnifying glass. Plucking the hairs will remove them temporarily, or one can use electrolysis or laser for permanent removal. ...Read more

This is a difficult problem and laser is probably easiest. Good luck. ...Read more
