    Had anyone seen s thickening or increase in density of their hair while practicing nofap? Does anyone think that fapping permanently damaged the hairline / scalp hair? Thanks in advance!
  2. Yes. Since I do nofap I think my hair looks much better. Idk why, but like it!

    Someone was mentioning about hair loss as well from fapping. Now I am pretty thin already on my scalp so not sure if hair will regrow but some people soaked at least 6 months before and real recovery signs...

    In younger age maybe, I am not sure how it is going to be with me as I am nearly 40 :D so far no change, even when I had 20 days before there was no change. But my hair looks alright I have no bold head or bold places and quality of my hair is naturally ok. As always been. So will see in the future eventually.
  5. I'm seriously bald. Maybe that's what over four decades of fapping does, ha ha!

    It's kind of funny, the old myth of "you'll go bald if you masturbate too much" probably has a bit of truth to it.

  10. According to hims, that's a myth:
    If [masturbation or sex] did, the vast majority of the world’s population would have serious hair loss problems and the medical community would be very much aware of it.​
    The article is worth reading.
  11. I've heard anecdotes, and actually seen pictures, on the forum of hair re-growth from abstaining from PMO.

    I'm 50 days in hard mode, and it seems my hair is a bit thicker, actually. Hardly a scientific claim though.

    I don’t really think there’s any truth to it. I can’t see how mastubation can make you lose your hair. Alright I’ve heard the DHT theories or whatever. But... hair loss is genetic. Every guy has testosterone and DHT. People say that having high testosterone increases your chances of going bald at an early age... which is true, but only if you’re sensitive to DHT. Plenty of guys who have high testosterone and even guys that take steroids have a great head of hair. Unfortunately it is all down to genetics.

    Now if you want to believe that abstaining from all kinds of ejaculation will help you regrow your hair, then go ahead. Use that as motivation. But then what happens when you meet a girl... are you gonna tell her that you’re not engaging in sexual activity because your hair is going to fall out? She will laugh you out the damn building.
  14. If I had hair like Fabio?

  15. Who knows at the end of the day. Our hormones are so out of whack what with the chemical imbalances in our brains.

    How do you know that ejaculating often puts your hormones out of whack?

    Unfortunely there are no studies on this, at least none with conclusive evidence. The only way to find out would be to get a bunch of healthy guys who’ve never watched porn. Stick them in a room for 3 months with an abundance of porn and then see what’s changed after studying them. Of course this study is impossible because I don’t think there’s a young guy on this planet that hasn’t dabbled in porn. Unless you visit some indigenous tribe...
  17. It’s not the ejaculation it’s more the chemical imbalance of specific neurochemicals that have a knock on effect with hormones.

    I didn't notice any improvement for my hair with nofap.
    Probably cold showers does.

    Hi there! Have you had a wet dream in you 50 days of hardmode? Do you think that the wet dream will reset your progress?

    Wet dreams won't reset your progress.
