    Hello all!
    The reason why I started NoFap is because I am 33 years old and my hair is greying aggressively. I am greying along the sides of my head. This was not the case for my parents and their parents when they were my age. Whether or not genetics is a factor, I want to do whatever I can to restore color to my hair and vitality to my life.

    I am currently just under 30 days of NoFap. (Started Jan 23rd 2018)
    Plucking some of my grey hair, I see a sign of hope. Some hairs I plucked have black pigmentation at the root. Some hairs are already restoring the black color of my hair halfway. In addition, I had dry, itchy skin during this winter season. Now, my skin does not itch and is healthy, without any use of moisturizer.

    I have heard that ejaculating deprives the body of vital nutrients which it has to restore by gathering it from other parts of the body. The Taoists have said something similar. I don't know if this is true, but I am finding out for myself.

    Has anyone shared a similar experience?

    Most of my hair fell off in my early 20s and started graying a couple of years ago. I’m currently on day 46 but I don’t think they graying is reversible (and obviously the hair isn’t coming back either). I might update after a year of nofap or so. Have yet to observe any change in my hair color

    Most of it is probably genetics.

    If you are worried, take a multivitamin, a B-complex and eat healthy if you want to slow down aging.

    Did you fap a lot in your early twenties? DO you think that a person such as myself (21 years old) would be able to heal any minor hair damage if I stop masturbating, or is the damage permanent?

    Hi mate,
    Recently, I’ve been abstinent for 85 days. I can’t say that “NoFap” has helped my grey hair. However I do feel more motivated in general.
    At this point, all I can say is give meditation a try.
    It looks like I have no choice but to embrace my greying.

    1 thing worth noting however. I do have grey hairs that turn black again. The tip is grey and the root is black. It’s a sign of hope for me.

    I got my first grey hairs when I was 18. Just one or two at the start but gradually got more and more over time. I'm 35 now and the sides of my head are probably 50 percent grey now. I've taken to dying it lately. I don't know if the premature greying is related to masturbation but it's certainly possible, I've been doing it for longer than that. I can't say if nofap will help to reverse greying, my longest streak is only around the 20 day mark. My thoughts are that once it goes grey it'll never go back but I certainly hope to be proven wrong. I'm going to beat my longest streak this time and keep going and see what happens.

  11. I doubt it's reversible. Some guys start balding at the age of 16 and some go grey earlier than the others. But keep posting here after a long streak if there are any improvements as I'm interested as well on the results!

  12. I was searching if it is true that nofap could turn grey hairs back in to black as it seems to be the case for me and searched for confirmation here. I started to got grey at 25 and was nearly completely grey some months ago had some good strikes and just one day of fap between and now since the I am at day 50 and it seems that my top hair is black again with some gray shimmering. The side is still fully gray. Let’s see if it change further down the road.

    Why is grey hair bad?
     
  14. I don’t say grey is bad since George Clooney it is absolutely the opposite . No it’s just the point about how surprised I am and normally you don’t get grey at 25 just my father and me and I am sure he has or had the same issues then I had with PMO

    I started going gray in my early 20’s. I look at this way.

    Proverbs 20:29
    The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.

    As someone who is both balding and slowly but surely going grey I would like to offer a slightly different perspective. Instead of trying to hide it or to fight it I would encourage men to own it and embrace it. With a little work when choosing a haircut, grey hair can lead to a very refined look. Similarly, if one is bald, a little bit of work with ones dressing style can lead to a unique and refined look.

    Or just buzz it all down. Nothing wrong with the Bruce Willis look if you keep yourself in good shape.

    Do you think that porn caused your balding, and do you think that it's worth fighting? I guess I'm asking in my context, as I'm 22, been balding for about 6 months (still have most of my hairline intact).
