Is it possible to predict whether you will lose your hair?

Will I lose hair?

If so, when will it start?

What can I expect?


That you are asking yourself these questions is not at all surprising as hair loss is something that affects many people, both men and women. Losing hair is to some extent hereditary and you are probably familiar with the expression "having thin hair runs in the family". Many also say, my father is thin-haired so I will also be thin-haired, for example... and there is a certain amount of truth in that.

It is difficult to predict whether you will grow thinning hair.

But just because one of your parents lost their hair at an early age, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will be affected. It will not or always start at the same time. Nor are you safe even if both your parents have hair left.

In order to better predict

Take a careful look at your family's hair: including uncles, aunts, uncles, grandparents and others - and don't forget the female members of the family. If many people in your family have thinning hair, you are more likely to have thinning hair yourself. But there is no guarantee that you will lose your hair in the future, so there is hope.

In the future, it may be possible to predict future thinning hair if research can identify the specific gene or genes associated with androgenetic alopecia.

Finally, although it is not possible to predict with certainty whether you will lose hair (but with a high degree of certainty), there are well-documented probabilities. A specialist at a hair clinic can examine hair follicles. What you can do proactively is to maintain good health and eat a well-balanced diet to give yourself the best chance of keeping your hair for life!
