Could the Royal Baby Experience Hair Loss?

kate middletonAs the media frenzy surrounding the pregnancy of the Duchess of Cornwall reaches fever pitch, spare a thought for the soon-to-be-born heir to the British Monarchy. Not only will the youngster one day rule the Commonwealth, they could also be at significant risk of pattern baldness.

The baby’s father, Prince William, has been experiencing a receding hairline for many years, as has grandfather Prince Charles. It is therefore not unfeasible that if the child is a boy, he will display the same genetic predisposition to hair loss as his relations.

A Question Of Genetics

Genes play a major part in male pattern baldness, a common hair loss condition that affects thousands of men across the globe. Male pattern baldness, or to give it its proper name, androgenic alopecia, is caused by hormones called androgens that act on hair follicles, inhibiting the growth of new cells and new hair. Eventually the growth stops completely, leading to the development of bald patches.

The affected hair follicles demonstrate a genetic predisposition to attack by androgens, suggesting that androgenic alopecia can indeed be inherited.

If My Parent Had Pattern Balding, Will I?

In the case of the Royal baby, and anyone else with a balding parent, there is a statistically higher chance of developing androgenic alopecia at some stage in life. Male pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss worldwide, and those who experience the condition often have parents that experienced it before them.

However, because genetics are involved, there is always the chance that the child of balding parents will not be affected – it’s impossible to accurately predict either way, as every case is different.

Hair Loss Need Not Be Permanent

The good news for the Royal baby and anyone else at risk of genetic hair loss is that there are proven treatments that can stop the loss of hair and even reverse it completely.
