Over the past few years I've been through phases where I masturbated three times a day, and phases where I only masturbated about 1 or 2 times a week. I noticed that if I went a while where I was masturbating 2 or 3 times a day, my hair would shed in incredible amounts. I would notice myself losing about 20 hairs an hour. During the times I ony masturbated 1 or 2 times a week I never noticed any hair fall and could run my fingers through my hair as roughly as I wanted to and rarely get any out.
I noticed this because I read that masturbation can cause fatigue if you do it too much, so I cut it down to only a few times a week. In addition to having more energy and noticing a Huge reduction in acne (which was a pleasent surprise) I also noticed my hair wasn't shedding anymore. I spent years trying to stop this awful shedding, I was so sick of catching 5 or 6 hairs on my plate every time I sat down to eat and I ended up curing it accidentally.
I know masturbation can put more sebum in your hair, so can an excess of sebum cause your hair to shed more? I'm trying to figure out why not masturbating sparked such a dramatic change. I'm not balding yet, or if I am, it's in very early stages so I'm not sure if it's connected with male pattern baldness or just how strongly rooted the hairs are in my scalp.
Can someone help explain this?
I should probably note that when my hair was shedding a lot, most of it came from the temples and crown.
