Answer by Nature Crazy:

No, just because your dad is bald and your older brother is starting to go bald does not mean you will go bald.

The Human Genome Project which gave birth to the field of epigenetics has shown that the DNA in our bodies is wrapped around proteins called histones. Both the DNA and histones create the physcial structure of the genone allowing certain genes accessibility while rendering others inactive.

So while DNA remains fixed, the epigenome constantly reacts to the diet and environment, allowing a complete change in genetic expression. In other words, your DNA is not your destiny. Just because hair loss runs in your family does not mean you’ll go bald. There are many ways for halting the process naturally for ALL types of hair loss.

Following a healthy diet free of the toxins and sugars found in the typical American diet while utilizing a few key natural supplements proven through science will be critical for those with hair loss genes. Also using a quality shampoo and conditioner containing no sulfates.


1. Do not get a hair transplant as they are not needed unless you are already bald.

2. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people still share the outdated belief that diet and compromised body systems are unrelated to the etiology of hair loss. Drug based products being pushed (like Rogaine and Propecia) take full advantage of the public’s lack of knowledge on the subject.

3. The key to reverse hair loss and any disease for that matter is getting to the root cause of the problem as opposed to treating the symptoms with drugs. Understand that reversing any type of damage in the body is a process, requiring a search into your whole body. What factors effecting one person’s body may not effect another which is why some people recover from hair loss quicker. Discovering these factors can make all the difference.
