    Default Does weight lifting cause hair loss?

    I am working a lot. My weight trainer is bald. But he shaves his head.
    If I work out a lot will the increase in testosterone increase my risk of hair loss?
    Is there anything to offset that? Is it a myth?
    Thanks

    Keep working out. It is more important to be healthy. If you are concerned have your testosterone and DHT levels checked. You can always consider taking a DHT blocker if your levels are to high. I really doubt that working out actually causes hair loss. Keep in mind that taking additional testosterone can cause increasing levels of testosterone and DHT leading to progression of hair loss.

    Hi,

    It is a myth that weight lifting causes hair loss.

    Here is an important tips to avoid hair loss.

    Biotin is thought to be one of the most efficacious vitamins when it comes to stopping and curing baldness problems. It is called for for significant and optimal production of the hair. Many patients with alopecia have successfully bettered the volume and thickness of their hair merely by eating up more biotin. Adequate amount of biotin in your daily diet will absolutely aid to cure your hair loss problems.

    This worries me I have never heard of this before. I workout with weights to keep myself looking buff ....id hate to think my effort to look good could be contributing to my hair loss.
