Does Masturbation Cause Hair Loss?

First and foremost, the root argument of whether masturbation is beneficial or harmful for overall health is in itself highly debatable. Think of masturbation as a chemical reaction that unleashes a plethora of hormones and proteins and activates millions of neurotransmitters.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Genetic hair loss or alopecia is caused by the interaction between your genes, your testosterone (and DHT levels), time, and stress. 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a male sex hormone, an androgen whose imbalance or metabolic changes can cause hair loss.

Normally, after ejaculation, the body triggers a testosterone-to-DHT conversion in the prostate and testicles. When DHT circulates and reaches the scalp and if your scalp is DHT-sensitive, excess DHT buildup can affect the hair follicles and their roots. 

Other important factors include stress and steroid-related toxins that increase the activity of 5-alpha reductase, leading to greater testosterone-DHT conversion. Excessive amounts of the amino acid L-arginine, in conjunction with a high level of androgen hormone, can over excite the nervous system causing excessive testosterone-to-DHT conversion that triggers a stress response.

Should You Stop Masturbating?

Ancient Ayurvedic texts detail semen (shukra) as being the purest form of the 7 bodily tissues (or dhatus). It is considered a source of the life energy (Ojas) that directly reflects on our immunity and aura. Many spiritually inclined people who undertake celibacy consider loss of this energy via sex or masturbation as a waste of vital life energy.

Masturbation is considered to assist in the healthy rejuvenation process of semen and if done without guilt, misconceptions and excess, it should help relieve stress, provide pleasure and recharge the sexual organs.

Considering all aspects, excess of any activity will create unhealthy imbalances in the mind, body, and soul. No activity or habit should overrule our senses, causing a serious lack of mind control. Guilt and misinformation can lead to stress than can adversely impact hair fall.

Hair fall is due to a combination of multiple factors including genetics, the effect of medications, DHT sensitivity, etc. And masturbation, within natural limits and for recreation, is NOT its root cause.

I think that today then for most people masturbation has nothing to do with guilt. Also I learning in public school from a stupid hippie teacher (but I'm not saying that hippies in general are stupid) that masturbation is the only way just as these stupid articles you are constantly writing at Curejoy are trying to convince us all about! But I know both sides of it from personal experience, and for me there is no doubt that ejaculation makes a person weak and probably also sick, and if you are serious about your spiritual growth then it is most wise not to do it. If you study Yoga, Tantra, Taoism, Indian spirituality, and most mystery schools also from the west, then you will learn that it is not possible to achieve higher levels of energy and initiation if doing ejaculation and also most likely it will close your third eye (as they say: Masturbation makes you blind). And about feeling tension if not ejaculating, then over time actually it will evolve into feeling bliss and powerful, and also it will destroy all your negative tensions as the kundalini rise, and then you will fell a sort of constant orgasm endless times more blissful and joyful than ejaculation. I have tried this from experience. Also you can choose to masturbate and have sex without ejaculation (Tantra). I personally know several people who do that and they are a lot more spiritual and powerful than most people, and according to women I have talked to then people who does not ejaculate are a lot more attractive as they have a lot stronger 'magnetism' and understand sexuality on many more sublime levels etc.

Maybe I should explain what I mean with "destroy negative tension': Your whole endocrine system can be seen as battery getting charged if you do not ejaculate and getting uncharged when having non-tantric orgasm leading to ejaculation. Therefore if you do not ejaculate then you build up positive tension (electricity) and that charged energy heals your body and destroy negative stress and tensions (and also awakens your higher spiritual abilities). But the positive tension and energy you get will make you stronger and more able to cope with stress and cure diseases etc. (also your skin will look cleaner and your eyes will become clearer and much stronger). You can ask any Indian guru about this and they will agree! Also you can look at the Shaolin monks and see what they are able of doing and think about that they never ejaculate. Therefore I recommend not to listen to stupid people telling you that ejaculation is good because they obviously don't know what they are talking about.
