Bodybuilding, Steroids and Hair Loss


    Bodybuilding And Hair Loss

    Many athletes and professional bodybuilders are known to take exogenous hormones such as testosterone and other DHT-derived steroids. Steroids are widely recognized for their ability to enhance performance, increase muscle tissue, and speed up recovery – however, there comes a price and other side effects.  Steroids speed up the hair loss by producing abnormally high levels of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).  Excessive DHT is known to be a leading factor in baldness and hair loss.

    Bodybuilding and exercise alone will not contribute to hair loss, but the usage of exogenous hormones will. The main factors that contribute to hair loss include stress, illness, genetics, rapid weight loss, iron deficiency and side effects to drugs. There are sure links between steroid usage and hair loss and there are many studies and pharmacological evidence to back this up. Simply speaking, the usage of anabolic steroids increases the level of DHT in the body. In turn, hair follicles become damaged and hair loss occurs.  Some people are more susceptible to this side effect than others, however. 

    If hair loss is not severe, then hormone therapy may be able to fix the imbalance in the body and help prevent further hair loss. Unfortunately, some men and women have hair loss that is too severe and usually, their best option is an FUE or DHI hair transplant.  If you’re wondering why a hair transplant is effective then continue reading.

    Hair loss can be extremely damaging to a person’s confidence and self-esteem. A bodybuilder is usually concerned about their physique and appearance, and thus experiencing hair loss is typically not a positive experience. Since hair loss is a stressful experience, the compounding effect can wreak havoc on your hair follicles.  This is why it’s important to be cautious when using anabolic steroids if you’re susceptible to hair loss. 

    If you’re experiencing hair loss, you may have tried various shampoos, products, and hair dyes.
