This is Dr. David
thank you for your question.
the genetics of hair loss is still not fully understood.
there are approximately 200 genes that regulate hair and hair growth
We know today that there are generally some genes from both sides of the family that play a role.
so just because your mother has significant hair loss doesn't mean you will
she could also have a medical condition like alopecia areta or thyroid disorder which can affect hair loss which you may not have.
there is no link between mothers who have early hair loss causing early hair loss in sons
so you don't have to worry
let me know if you have other questions.
