    Interesting theory, but it’s deboonked by sun-loving Greeks alone, who have lots of sun and some of the highest rates of baldness. It’s obviously caused by engaging in deep philosophical thought.

    A much more plausible theory is baldness thins out older men from the breeding pool so theyre less likely to cheat which likely promotes family cohesion making for better success for families

        im 35 with long flowing locks. i read somewhere that jerking off too much makes you bald but i am the biggest coomer around so that theory is debunked

      >Hairloss is caused from vitamin D deficiency .
      no, it’s caused by oversensitivity of hair to DHT. it’s genetic

      it’s secondary sex characteristic which for some reason didn’t get popular

      I lost 50lbs in like 2 months from fasting + cardio+sauna and my hair started falling out in clumps. I started eating a lot of eggs, red meat and it began growing normal and shedding stopped. Stopped sauna and stopped even hot showers. My hair has always been thick and healthy. I have no hairline recession but the top is thinner now than before I lost the weight

      losing weight is stressor and stress causes hair falling

      that would also mean that men with hair are reproductively more active, increasing the amount of non-balding men. what are you even trying to say?

      • Anonymous says:

        No. Because when youre 40 plus youve already had loads of kids and it doesnt matter if you go bald after that because your kids who in theory are more fertile are there to breed in lieu of you who should be looking after your community now that youve served your reproductive purposes.

        balding younger is because of all the shit thats in the environment these days. I doubt people balded by 25 100 years ago

    Multiple vitamin deficiencies can cause hair loss, vitamin D3, b-12, zinc, calcium, biotin, low iron/ferritin, iodine, etc. There’s really no way to tell for sure if it’s one or the other without getting tested. Thyroid disorders can also cause hair loss depending on the severity of the condition, but these typically only manifest in diffuse thinning in random areas of the head rather than in the typical horseshoe pattern you typically see with MPB. Face it, unless you genuinely have a disorder that can cause hair loss, you could just be losing your hair due to genetics.

      All follicles on the scalp are apparently genetically identical, though, which is what makes the pattern so puzzling.

        It’s resemblance to the the shape of the frontoccipitalis muscle is interesting, I remember reading something about it being overdeveloped in balding men, causing strain on the skin in the area leading to inflammation and then dht coming onto action. Hopefully an anon here would elaborate on this I have no clue on how this works

        All cells in your body are genetically identical, so that’s not puzzling at all.
        But the genetic expression is different and it has origin in embryonic development.

      I take 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 a day and still ended up with pattern baldness.

      True, any explanation for pattern baldness has to account for the PATTERN. If it’s a vitamin deficiency, why isn’t all the hair lost?

        i saw someone from some random message board years ago post a very compelling personal theory that the pattern follows the muscles along the top and sides of the skull which certainly checks out. his thinking was that lack of muscle at the top of the skull reduces flow of nutrients to the area like grass growing on a low quality soil. what creative thinking from someone no one will ever know meanwhile our best and brightest doctors are unable to come up with much of anything surrounding this topic

    my shedding dropped to near 0 when I started taking d3 tablets every day. This was on top of other treatments I was already doing so I can’t say it was the sole fix but it definitely helps

      Inb4 K2 mk7 is dht inhibitor and k2 mk4 and mk7 are important for d3 metabolism
      They’re mainly found in meat/fermented food like ruminant stomach.

        I just used ketoconazole shampoo + red light therapy for 5 months before I started taking d3. Shedding dropped really low with just the first two then to 0 when I starting taking d3. I was severely deficient in vitamin D, which would have contributed to my hair loss.

        I’ve started using a microneedling pen + min since. hairline has improved.

          ah yes, the usual "i’m doing it the wrong way around first because i’m afraid of fin". brother, you’re losing that battle because you’re still holding back what should have been your first line of defence. get topical if you’re scared of sides.

    I’ve always had very very thick/healthy hair but recently started diffusion thinning while my actual hairline is still a Norwood 1. I really think it’s related to me never going outside for the past two years.
    My skin is also super pale and almost grey now and I have dark circles under my eyes.
    Going tomorrow to get my blood tested.
    I want to try a Vitamin D injection before I hop on fin.

      I don’t think you not going out is going to cause all that. You must have something else going on.

    Since I noticed my hair started thinning a few months ago, I’m dealing with a constant DHT itch and my scalp is inflamed. My hair slightly hurts at the root and I can’t even wear hats because pushing my hair down sort of hurts.

    I didn’t know having thinning hair was so damn uncomfortable.

    Are all balding men dealing with this constantly??

    Is anyone balding and NOT dealing with an itchy, inflamed scalp?

    I’ve tried Nizoral but stopped using it because it was causing more shedding and didn’t seem to be doing much.

    • Anonymous says:

      I had a itchy scalp ever since I became an adult, with a lot of dandruff as well.
      I’ve noticed my hairline receding slowly (NW2 right now at 25) as well, then I took fin (1mg a day) and the itching and dandruff was completely gone after 2 months.
      3 months now, no real regrowth yet, also no additional thinning or shedding, but I take the better scalp health as a good sign.

    If only you guys were ready to accept how much masturbation contributes to hairloss…

    I will give this advice. Those who are not worthy will shrug it off as a joke or bro science, those who are ready to save their hair will listen to me:

    – Urine mask (use your own)
    – Salt mask
    – No poo
    – Total nofap
    – Scalp excercise (google it)

    Simple as. You will thank me one day.

        THIS, blood flow is the reason behind the pattern

        >okay guys, fapping makes you go bald cause uh.. trust me bro, it just does. so what you need to do to prevent that is just go and piss up into your face, then your hair will be okay
        I’m convinced

        >okay guys, extreme daily loss of nutrients and energy makes you go bald cause uh.. trust me bro, it just does.
        Why people think this is something weird? Is the being a good coomergoy psyop this strong? Do you really think every culture suggest to avoid that certain act just because they’re muh bigots? I’m not even a nofap guy but ffs anons, it’s obviously not natural to spend every day jerking off, especially if it’s combined with a unhealthy modern lifestyle and nutrition

        Tachycardia?
        Serious farma oral minox is gone because all the baldies went like crazy for it. Now you can get it done by request in your local farmacy, but many times the guys hecked up the dosage and I read many horror stories about people taking 50mg instead of 6mg and eding losing consciousness or getting their heart beating like crazy.
        I also was looking forward to cosmerna but even taking out the crazy expensive price, it seems like a total scam.

          tachycardia yes one of the reasons i went to the emergency room + severe daily headaches, nausea, dizziness, weakness, tremors, spasms, numbness in my hands, and eye floaters which are likely permanent. worst symptoms in the first 1-2 months basically bed ridden 24/7, then a long stretch of daily headaches and nausea. i never even took a lot of minoxidi much less than a therapeutic dose of 5-10 mg and much less than others who experienced no symptoms at all. no acute symptoms at all it was totally gradual and then long lasting. the first 2 weeks i felt nothing noticeablle and then it all went downhill. it can sneak up on you. 1 year and a half later i only get a headache once or twice a week sometimes get a weird feeling in my feet and calves like they’re about to jump despite sitting still. it can somehow re write how your body fundamentally works. dont expect just lower blood pressure. my blood pressure actually never lowered which was a danger sign i was looking for that never appeared.

            damn, that’s even worse than fin, where the sides just stop once you stop taking it. guess vasodilators aren’t the cure for hair loss.

            do they even prescribe .25mg of fin or do people mostly cut down their 1mg pills?

            people cut them down. the clinical studies with 0.25mg haven’t been performed yet. doctors prescribe you 1mg, but they can’t stop you from taking less, obviously.

        I don’t think that finasteride 5mg is correct and no studies seem to be supporting exactly that. finasteride accumulates in the body and the current suspicions are the accumulated finasteride is responsible for sides, which is why many people see regrowth and no sides at something like 0.25mg fin. however, my statements are just based on anecdotal evidence, as there somehow isn’t a big push to make more studies on the things that already work. instead, everybody wants to make the next better thing or at least cash in before people notice it doesn’t work.

        i also heard some people say it’s based on subcutaneous fat in the scalp, and you can see that in people with pattern baldness. the areas without hair and noticeably "flattened" and the skin seems to be closer to the skull. not based on any study, btw.

    Not this again.

    If your hairloss is caused by vitamin deficiency, managing that would help stop the loss.
    However if its cause due to DHT sensitivity, vitamins wont do anything, you would need to address the DHT (probably fin or equivalent with minoxidil youre just hoping you can outgrow the loss)

    if your hairloss is caused by stress, then you will probably continue to lose hair until you adapt or rid yourself of those stressors.

    You can even be a mixture of all 3 of these things. Good luck
