  • 35 isn't early at all, and it's hereditary!

  • I have friends that have been balding since their early 20s, and my uncle was balding around that time too :) Part of life!

  • Stress maybe. IDK. Hubs is 39 and still has a full head of hair when all the other men in his family were balding by then.

  • I know a guy who is 23 who is going bald. Sometimes wearing a hat all the time can make it happen. It is mainly hereditary. Some men will grow hair back if they stop wearing a hat so often... but people that have it in their family usually do not. (like this 23 yr old guy I know poor thing)

  • My husband just turned 30 and he's going bald on top. Maybe it is BPA or something our parents were exposed to that jacked up their hormones later in life.

  • The medical community has proven that the gene for male pattern baldness is passed down thru the WOMEN! So if you carry it, and seventy percent of us do ladies, your son will likely be bald. If your hubby, bf, fiance, bro, dad, uncle, etc. is bald, tell him to thank his mommy!!! LOL
