Is it true that your mother's side of the fam determies if you're gonna be bald or not?

I've heard plenty of people say that if the males on your mom's side are bald/balding/have a receding hairline you will too. Is there any truth tothis?

just the other day, I was telling my barber that I saw this guy that had black ice sprayed all over his scalp but he was balding. I was likewhy doesn't he just give up, and accept that he is balding? And he was saying that hair is really a source of pride for men, that is why you see so manybalding dudes trying to place those few strands across their scalp, or you see dudes telling their barbers to edge them up even though their lineup is pushedback further then Robocops.

If your mom's POPS (grandpa)is bald then you'll be bald most likely...

Mom's X chromosome determines recessive/dominant traits - so your odds of going bald can be figured out based upon your mother's side of the family forthe most part. It's never 100 percent one way or the other though, so don't feel too worried or too safe.

However - all the men on my mom's side are bald and my hairline has been going back for years now - i'm well on my way, and have known i would be sincei was about 12... awfully depressing, but eventually you realize that looks really are overrated, and women are attracted to bald men anyways.
