Why is hair loss genetic?

This is something I never understood. I see some people who have balding heads yet every trace back in their family, they kept their hair. Then you have people with balding parents on both sides and they keep their hair well into their 60's before they even notice any loss. I feel like it depends on if you eat for your genes or not. Like if we eat how are ancestors ate, we wouldn't be losing hair.

So why is hair loss based on nothing other than genetics in 80% of cases?
