Does masturbation cause hair loss?
Does masturbation cause hair loss? This is one of the most asked questions that we get in our customer service, so I will try my best to answer it in the most complete and exhaustive way.
According to different studies, at the moment of ejaculation, a higher quantity of testosterone gets converted into a DHT, a hormone which is rather aggressive for the hair follicles.
This hormone is known to attack and reduce the size of the hair follicles, and it is considered by science as one of the main causes of thinning hair.
Consequently, some people attribute their hair loss to the practice of masturbation, and having sex with another person.
Is this a real, legitimate and scientific cause of hair loss?

Is it safe to keep giving yourself and your partner pleasure, without running the risk of ruining the health of your hair follicles?
Well, you are about to find out!
First of all, there is a big difference between sex and masturbation, and the way our body reacts in these two different situations.
Sex and Hair Loss
Sex is way more intimate, and can involve love, communication and the joy of giving pleasure to your partner, while masturbation is an act of self love, where normally you are alone with yourself.
As I said our body reacts very differently in these two situations, and according to some trusted researchers, it seems that masturbation doesn’t have the same health benefits that sex does.
“It appears that not all orgasms are created equally,” says Tobias S. Köhler, MD, MPH, FACS an associate professor at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield.
Different studies show that intercourse has all sorts of benefits for men: for your blood pressure, heart and prostate health, and blood circulation.
It has also been observed that it has the ability to relieve pain and improve your sleep.
You’d think that masturbation would too, but according the professor, the makeup of the semen is different if you masturbate instead of having sex, because of the different situation involved.
Why would it make a difference whether you ejaculate during sex or alone?
Well, our body seems to respond in a different way.
So it looks like that regular sex is good for your life, your health and your relationship, and if you are losing your hair, your sex life does not have to suffer.
Masturbation and Hair Loss
Masturbation is not as safe as sex, when it comes to the health of your hair follicles, still it is not the cause of your hair loss either.
But let’s come to the scientific facts, not the hype, the urban myths and misinformation.
Studies show that when you ejaculate during masturbation a higher percentage of testosterone is converted into DHT, and a higher level of Testosterone is produced in your prostate and testicles.
This is true, and different scientific studies have confirmed it.
In one of these studies, published in the US national library of medicine, National institutes of health, the levels of DHT have been measured before and after masturbation.
And after masturbation, the levels of this hormone were actually increased.
You will find the link for this study in the description section below the video.
But, the fact is that most guys masturbate.
They masturbate if they’re single, in a bad relationship, or in a great relationship.
It’s just something they do that has nothing to do with their partners.
For many, it’s a routine way of relieving stress, or going to sleep.
So, while it is true that DHT levels in your body increase after masturbation, it is also true that your body will still produce this hormone, whether you masturbate or not.
Because of this, even though I am not endorsing masturbation, I can safely tell you that significantly increased levels of DHT, and enlarged prostate only happen in cases of excessive masturbation, and by excessive masturbation I mean 2 or more times a day, 7 days a week.
Excessive masturbation can also cause, poor concentration, deteriorating eyesight, mood swings, sleeping disorder, anxiety, stress and depression.
And yes, in that case, I can safely say that it can increase dramatically the DHT levels in your body, and you should keep it under control.
Even if you masturbate just once a day, 2 to 4 times a week, then you should be out of the danger zone.
Personally, I would try to reduce masturbation to the lowest level possible, but it is important to know that with that rate, you should be fine.
Another important point for you to remember is to replenish your nutrient levels, according to the frequency of your masturbation and intercourses.
In fact a few minerals such as zinc, selenium and copper are lost in significant amount during each ejaculation, and you should replenish them either through an appropriate diet, rich in these minerals, or through supplementation.
