At 25 years old, i seem to be experiencing receding hairline. At a young age 
i've experience an 'unusual' amount of white hair. My father's family has 
always had the white hair syndrome which lead me to conclude that i have my 
father's hair genes. My father's family does not experience balding until at 
least 60 years old as i can notice. My father at 58 still has lots of hair. On 
the other hand, my mother's family has always experienced balding but no white 
hair syndrome. Also, two years ago, i've lost a great amount of hair on my 
frontal and crown due to fungal infection(as dignosed by the doctor. My hair 
has not grown back since.

I understand that we inherit both our parents' genes but only have one 
predominant gene.
