    Best answer: Some do. The ones that do generally wear wigs, so you can't tell.

    The condition of pattern baldness is inherited through the mother in mitochondrial DNA. Pattern baldness is triggered by a genetic disposition for dihydrotestosterone (DHC), a natural occurring endogenous androgen sex steroid, to cumulatively build up in the scalp and eventually reach such levels that it triggers an immune response that causes white blood cells to attack it and as a side effect kill the neighboring hair follicles. DHC occurs in both women and men, but because men produce so much more, pattern baldness is more prevalent in men and the onset is on average sooner because, again, it's caused by accumulation, so those who have the gene who produce low levels of DHC will over a lifetime start to see pattern baldness as it accumulates in the scalp.

    There is a medicine that came out about 20 years ago called Propecia. Propecia inhibits the production of DHC. Taken soon enough, it can delay and even prevent the onset of pattern baldness. It will not bring dead hair follicles back to life, though, and if started too late into pattern baldness, it isn't as effective because the DHC that's already been produced and is accumulated in the scalp Propecia can't do anything about. Only men can take Propecia, though, because of certain side effects it causes in women. If your male and see a lot of pattern baldness on your mom's side of the family, being proactive by starting Propecia when you're young, like in your early 20's, you have more than an 80% chance of staving off baldness, which just about any man will tell you is a godsend.

    My mum is 42 and I am 14. Last year she stopped coloring her hair and is now fully grey.Everybody mistakes her for my grandma and I am so happy. I feel like laughing when I see teenagers walking around with young looking mum's and people asking " oh is that your sister" Yuck that's really really emabarassing . Why can't these women be like my mother and just display their natural appearance. Why try to hide your age. If you have a young looking mum, I feel such pity towards you. Mum's of teenagers are supposed to be mistaken for grandmas, not sisters or girlfriends right?
