Effect of Masturbation on your Hair  

Some people say that masturbation causes hair loss but it is just a myth or a misconception that is believed by people all around the world. Masturbation is a regular part of everyone’s life and a lot of people do it. It does not affect your hair or your skin in any way.

  • People believe so because hair is made up of protein and the semen also contains a lot of protein, so they think during ejaculation they are losing protein which can be used for your hair growth.
  • Some believe that masturbation increases testosterone which is related to the hormone DHT(Dihydrotestosterone) which is responsible for hair loss. 
  • Premature hair loss is genetic and not caused by masturbation. During this process, men lose at least 50 -100 hair but they also grow new ones.

So in conclusion masturbation doesn’t cause you to lose hair but it can increase the levels of testosterone in your body.
