    I read earlier in a topic on this community that masturbation is related to hair loss. I know it's a genetic thing, but I'll ask you. Do you think masturbation somehow influences hair loss? Have you suffered or seen cases, have you heard from others before? I think it has some connection, because when you ejaculate you lose many proteins and substances beneficial to the body, and for those who have this problem, it can get worse.

    Maybe it does in a way but it doesn't make a big difference. It is a genetic thing and if you're losing hair then you should try to look into your nutrition (like you mentioned proteins and substances beneficial to the body).
    But that being said abstaining from it can help fix the problem in addition to keeping a healthy lifestyle that is

    Lots of research I have read says it can. It is DHS, a chemical released when you masturbate that depending on your genes can make your hairline go. Lots of people have said doing sperm retention has reduced or reversed the hair loss depending on how far through the process you are. I personally think my forehead has gotten bigger since masturbaing but I could just be self conscious.

    I have noticed hair growth, and it has been only been 7 days NoFap. I see tiny hairs growing in the area where I have lost previously. Its amazing!

    On top of that...I read somewhere in religious forums where baldness, or hair loss, is a sign of perversion. Could there be a correlation ? Who knows.

    I have doubts that hair loss is genetic...because why are humans the only animals that experience hair loss, receding hairline, baldness, etc. Animals have sexual desires...but do not have hands to stroke the shaft and merely experience their sexuality through reproduction with another mates. They do this during "safe" times. Animals are more focused on survival, food, etc. than intercourse, whereas we humans (we are animals of course) are addicted to sex and getting stroked as we are emotionally lost.

    We should probably do a mass experiment of taking pictures of our harilines on no pmo for a certain amount of time and compare results. Fuck those corporate shills trying to make money off of mens fears of hair loss because of their unhealthy life styles.
     
  6. To do the experiment you would

    1. need to pmo for a SUBSTANTIAL amount of time for your hairline to receed a measurable AMOUNT.

    2. commit to no pmo for the exact same TIME IT TOOK TO GET YOUR FIRST MEASUREMENT and compare the results.

    SEEMS LIKE A BAD TASK IF YOU HATE PMO LIKE ME AND A VERY DIFFICULT ONE THAT IF YOU FUCK UP YOU WOULD HAVE WASTED ALOT OF TIME PMOING FOR NOTHING

  7. I don't think this is true, maybe it slows down hair regeneration but I think it will regenerate evtually the same way acording to the aging of the body. And I don't think masturbating ages the body enough to make a difference in your hairline but that's just my opinion, you don't know until you do the experiment yourself.

    We're not. Other animals lose their hair too.

    I try to make sure not to come too quickly to consequences but I believe that there's a connection between hair loss and fapping. I'm balding - first the hairline now the top - so I'm used to see my hair on the table, the sink, clothes... but every time - really, every single time - I relapse, the amount of hair loss I notice the following day is much higher. Like three times more.

    I've read a book with TCM(traditional Chinese Medicine) topic and it says there that too much ejaculation can lead to hair loss or hair thinned. Almost everything said it in this book seems true and my personal experience confirms them.
    I was heavily addicted a few months back and I used masturbate 2 to 3 times a day. I have really thick hair and I've never experienced hair loss but my hair became thinner after those indulgences... Now that I've been more moderate in my porn use and masturbation, after having streaks of different duration I can tell you that my hair is growing thicker(as it used to be). I don't know what bullshit is being said out there on the internet but my personal experience confirms that too much ejaculation has an effect on hair loss.

    As an Infrasapiens, I am going to say "No". I'm going bald anyways regardless of NoFap so, it's genes.
     
  11. After streaks and relapses for almost 2 years, my hair became little thicker; I knew because I saw it in the mirror and because my wife told me so.

    But I think the main reason behind my slow growth is I considerably reduced my stress.

    After you orgasm, dopamin goes down Prolaction goes up. This is well known. Prolaction creates the enzyme that converts T to DHT. Alpha reductas 3 or what it is calling. So in the end you get more DHT the more you orgasm alone.

    If you have sex with a partner this is not happening, depending on how you are having sex. You get some other hormones when you orgasm with a partner and dopamin goes higher than Prolaction.
    Proclation hight, Dopamin LOW.
    Dopamin Hight, Prolaction Low.

    Hight Prolaction= Alpha Reductas 3 -> T -> DHT - > Hair Thinning.

    I think masturbation can promote hair loss,but almost all is in genes,and we can do little to change something.
     
  16. Without reading the description or anyone's replies but only the title, in answer the question, Yes. I do not believe it is not a genetic thing. That is just a theory. I have observed directly over years of this how much hair I retain or lose from my sexual purity or impurity. The brain has an amazing algorithm. It knows how much semen you have ejaculated over your lifetime, and hair loss has a direct correlation. There are pure, smart men in their 80's who still have hair, while there are young, impure boys who have lost all their hair by their thirties and are thinning in their 20's. I am 26 and have signs of receding for two years now. Since I've stopped PMO, I do not lose as much hair, but I'll still lose strands every now and then, but not like after a relapse or binging, where I would constantly lose up to seven strands of hair immediately after and then some for the next week, until my hair strengthen again (you get stronger after a week of purity).

    Most hair loss is due to genetics and poor circulation, they sell wooden brushes that stimulates blood flow and it has helped a lot of people.
