Did You get the baldness Gene from Mom or Dad? Is there anything you can do about it...

Posted by Dr Larry Shapiro is Developer and Founder of Help Hair Shake and Products on

Did You get the baldness Gene from Mom or Dad? 

Is there anything you can do about it...

We all wonder where our head of hair (or lack of it) comes from.

Is it from my Mom's or Dad's side of the family.

How come I am losing hair and my brother ( or sister) is not

losing hair?

Will I end up with a Bald spot like Dad or will I look like one of

my Mom's uncles, or even my Grandfather?

We need to understand that hair loss is a multifaceted gene

expression. Which means that there is not a single specific

gene that controls hair loss. Rather it is the expression of

many genes that control your hair loss, including color of your

hair, texture, density and even the length that your hair will


The most well-known genes associated with hair loss is the Androgen

Receptor (AR) gene. 

The AR gene codes for the androgen receptor protein, which helps hair

follicles detect androgen hormones (such as DHT). The AR gene is

located on the X chromosome. But this does not account for every case

of Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). In fact several genetic mutations can be

the cause of MPB. So it is multi-facted and  

 therefore both parents genes determine the chance of hair


Genes can express themselves but environmental factors can

play a major role in the expression of our Genes.

So rather then play into the hands that cannot control my hair

loss we need to proactive and realize that increasing DHT

levels especially with life style supplements is a major factor

for many people. 

Rather than taking Creatine, Whey Protein isolate, Pea

protein, hemp protein, egg protein or even soy protein, it is

better to take a protein with all the vitamins and nutrients that 

will not increase your DHT levels and provide all the daily

nutrition to make your hair as healthy as possible.

Our Help Hair  Products have been on the Market for  14

years  and have been time tested with thousands of satisfied

customers. Unlike any other product on the market our

products have been formulated by an actual Hair Restoration 

physician, Dr Shapiro with 30 years of experience  who has

actually seen results from thousands of his own patients, and

we have 100's of top  medical clinics with consistent

great results with their own patients.

Dr Larry Shapiro is an adjunct clinical faculty member at DeBusk Medical 

School in Tennessee and has treated hair loss exclusively and has

trained and Help Hair Clinics Worldwide. Dr Shapiro has lectured on hair 

loss throughout the World and has published in a textbook in Hair 

Restoration with an entire chapter on his extensive research on hair

growth and supplements. 

Dr Larry Shapiro (Founder) and son, Dr. Douglas Shapiro

Other companies that are formulating their own

vitamins are guessing at best what might work and do not

have the background or years of experience in the hair

restoration field to get you the results that you are trying to

achieve. A corporation decides what your choices are for 

ingredients and unlike Help Hair products, these corporations 

may want their bottom line to be the most important part of you

hair loss plan.

At Help Hair our bottom line is you, your hair and your well


So rather then letting you baldness genes slowly eat away at 

your hair be Pro-Active and try some of our shakes, vitamins,

collagen, or shampoos and conditioners and read our 

Hand out on hair loss and change the way you treat your hair.
