Masturbation and hair loss in men

As you continue to age, the body decreases its production of important neuro-chemicals. On the other hand Masturbation limits the endocrine system which controls the release of such hormones.  With excessive masturbation, the body can go through accelerated damage to the tissue cells and organs. Men who keep masturbating excessively will eventually reach an exhausted state in which their bodies produce more inflammatory hormones and proteins, including prostaglandin E2 and DHT. These in turn might be the cause of pain and hair loss.

Excessive swimming and hair loss. Is there a link?

Any pool chemicals or ocean salt poses a threat to your hair health, whether or not you suffer from a hair loss condition. These agents tend to make hair feel dry and brittle, which is easily remedied by reducing your swim sessions and practicing routine deep conditioning hair masks



The water of the swimming pool essentially contains chlorine, which work as an effective anti-bacterial and anti-algae agent, helping the pool water to stay clean and hygienic. The problem is that, no matter how good it is for keeping the pool water hygienic, chlorine takes a negative toll on your hairs. It damages the cuticles of the hair shafts, which triggers hair fall through breakage and in addition to that chlorine can also harm the hair follicles on the scalp which can cause extreme hair loss.
Being a natural product, ocean salt (sea water) should be less damaging to hair than chlorine
Either way, in this article you will find some useful tips on caring for your hair to minimise the damage.

Some aspects of bodybuilding and hair loss

The more testosterone you have, the higher your levels of DHT and the main cause of hair loss is high levels of DHT. DHT is the by-product of testosterone.

Many bodybuilders try to increase testosterone by taking supplements and injections. With the increase of testosterone the DHT levels increase and this may cause thinning hair and balding.

Those who are only taking supplements are not particularly prone as the increase of DHT from the increase of testosterone is not high enough in levels to cause balding. However, those who are going to lose their hair genetically may find that they are losing it quicker because of the increases.




Many theories have circulated through the gym masses stating that bodybuilding alone causes baldness. This is not exact. Just working out naturally with no supplements, steroids or injections will not cause baldness.
