There is some scientific evidence to suggest that masturbation can contribute to hair loss; however I don’t believe there is any 100% positive proof. In theory it does make sense that ejaculation can have an impact on the hair in men who have a genetically inherited sensitivity to DHT in their scalps.
During sex or masturbation testosterone levels increase and at the point of ejaculation, some testosterone is converted into DHT. If the DHT makes it to the scalp and the scalp is sensitive to DHT, the result could be increased hair loss.
What is the solution?
There are several ways of combating this problem. You can stop masturbating or having sex (at least to the point of ejaculation), you can inhibit DHT production using saw palmetto, prescription hair loss medication or with dietary changes, or ideally, you can stop the DHT from reaching your scalp by making your body’s hormonal processing system more efficient.
My personal approach is a mixture of the latter two options. I’m not a fan of the prescription medication approach and I feel that taking saw palmetto supplements everyday for the rest of your life is not a satisfactory solution to stopping hair loss, since it relies on continued use of a supplement.
I think that for the average person a saw palmetto supplement is an adequate short-term solution. However I would advise that if you want a more complete solution you should aim to solve the problem at it’s root, by improving the efficiency of your body’s hormonal processing capabilities.
