It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

Does Creatine Cause Hair Loss?

Men considering creatine as a workout supplement are often troubled by the rumors that creatine and hair loss are linked. The science on the subject, however, is not conclusive. In fact, only one 2009 study of a team of rugby players points to the fact that creatine may be responsible for hair loss. The results of this study have not been reproduced since it was conducted. Though the research in question has become a popular citation in the argument that creatine causes hair loss, this may not necessarily be true.

The most compelling piece of evidence that this study found was that creatine ingestion boosted the rugby players’ levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is an androgen, a male hormone which is a byproduct of testosterone. Though creatine is not definitively linked to hair loss, the overproduction of DHT has been shown to accelerate hair loss in genetically susceptible people. There are pharmaceuticals available to block the body’s overproduction of DHT, which can effectively slow or curb hair loss. To be clear, only one study links creatine to risen levels of DHT. So, it is plausible that creatine could cause hair loss, but it is not proven.
