This is the reason why you’re going bald, but your dad and brothers aren't

We’ve all been there. Early one weekend morning, pruning ourselves in the mirror when we happen to notice that our forehead looks a lot larger than it usually does. “Am I going bald?” you ask as you desperately try and comb your hairline forwards, or worse, to the side Bobby Charlton style.

It’s a traumatic experience (unless you’re Bruce Willis) that happens to a lot of men, and most people will tell you it’s down to genetics. But what if you don’t have a bald dad? In fact, what if nobody in your family is bald and you’re the only one losing your barnet?
