Is baldness inherited from the mother’s family?
It can be, but it can also be inherited from the father’s side, or there may be no history of baldness on either side of the family and you are simply unlucky to have thinning hair. Somewhere in your genetic pool your genes help to control what your hair does. It takes two, a male and a female, to make a baby, and the genes of either sex can affect the onset of baldness. It is really just a matter of luck.
