Ive read some on the red hair color dominant gene.
In your experience, is there any link as to that gene and baldness? Meaning - if I have a red hair gene that came from my fathers mother, am I more likely to get the bald gene from his side of the family as well?
Nope, there is no direct connection between hair color and balding. The genes are separate.
There is some interesting reading here about hair on Wikipedia.
