A new test will determine your chances of going bald.

It's a DNA test designed for men ages 18 to 40 with full heads of hair. A company called Hair DX can send you the test for $149.

"You receive the kit in the mail," said Andy Goren of Hair DX. "You open the kit and there's a little swab, just like a little toothbrush and when you use it, just swab the inside of your cheek for about a minute."

Then you mail back the swab and within three weeks, you will have results.

Right now the test is only available over the internet. You can order it from the website at www.hairdx.com.
