Nobody in our family is bald, not even my grandfather and doctors said in fine after a few tests. So why i can't undrestand why my hairs are falling out? The only thing that i found out on the internet is that masturbation cause that. I know there is no evidence on that, but is there any evidence that it doesn't?

Myths about hair loss

Most men masturbate at some point during their lives, but they don’t all go bald. There are many myths about hair loss and hair restoration and I tried to organize many of them in my book, Modern Hair Restoration.  You can check it out for more reasons that are claimed they can cause hair loss.

Simply put, there is no relationship between hair loss and masturbation. Hair loss is mainly genetic but there are also medical conditions that can cause hair loss. However, the best advice I can give you is to go to a reputable hair restoration clinic to be evaluated. Reputable meaning one that is not trying to be a salesman and going straight to book a hair transplant. A reputable hair restoration clinic will provide you with ALL of your options concerning how to stop your hair loss now and counsel you correctly so you yourself can be informed enough to make a sound decision. Please be aware of high pressure sales tactics.

Hair loss and masturbation

Men masturbate frequently, especially when they are young. Hair loss is genetic and will not be accelerated by masturbation. If you are losing hair, visit us at our Open House on Saturday August 20 between 11-2pm where you can meet a doctor, get a diagnosis, see a surgery, meet patients that have had hair transplants.  These are wonderful experiences. Our address is on our website.
