Greetings, Besides heredity. What are other factors that causes baldness? Is it true that regular usage of shampoo and hair gel causes this? Thanks
It's heredity--the: Gene causing male pattern baldness is on the X-chromosome. That means your father had nothing to do with it because there are very few genes on the Y chromosome.

The culprit is dihydrotestosterone, made from testosterone by skin receptors. ...Read more
