Many people think that there is a relationship between masturbation and hair loss. They claim that the more you masturbate, the more hair you will lose. However, this is a complete misconception because no matter how hard you masturbate everyday, it does not badly affect your hair follicles at all, it is total urban legend because there is no evidence for such a thing.
People really likes associating some bad things with masturbation. Hair loss and infertility are the most common two things that are associated with masturbation. People start being afraid of masturbating because they think that they may cause infertility.
It is true that some kind of hormonal irregularities may cause hair loss on your scalp, however, masturbation has nothing to do with the hormonal irregularities on your body. The most famous hair loss type is the male pattern baldness and it’s transferred via heredity.
Most hair loss types are seen during the rest phase. The rest phase is the period when your hair starts falling more than usual. This period lasts for 3 months. Your scalp enters the rest phase in every 3 years. A hair loss is occured when the rest phase lasts longer than 3 months.
Your lost hair strands are supposed to be recovered by your scalp after the rest phase. However, a severe hair loss type like male pattern baldness causes a longer rest phase and results in a receding hairline. You can visit a dermatologist to get it checked. You may have a serious skin disease on your scalp that may cause temporary or permanent hair loss.
