Steroids and Hair Loss


We often hear about steroids usage and hair loss.

Today we will discuss this subject.

1. If YOU are prone to hair loss genetically it will happen anyway and steroids may increase the speed of this process.

2.
If you are not prone you may not worry.

3.
DHT(dihydrotestosterone) is considered to be main factor for causing hair loss. So when you are on steroid cycle whic means higher levels of DHT are present in your body thus more like hair loss process will start. Again, if you are NOT prone to this genetically you will not see hair loss.
There are guys who do cycles year after year and nothing happens to their hair.

4.
The more androgenic steroid is the more chances is that it will cause hair loss.

5.
Choose steroids which are less likely to cause hair loss.

Here is the list of steroids which in comparison with other will less cause (again if you are prone then you always have chance to loose some hair)

  • - Testosterone (low dosage)
  • - Turinabol
  • - Deca Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate)
  • - Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (NPP)
  • - Boldenone (Equipoise)


How to prevent hair loss while on steroid cycle?

Well,best idea is to not do a steroid cycle however if you still want it then keep in mind that if you have genetic predisposition it becomes harder however the main idea is to block the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) from attaching to hair follicles that are prone to male pattern baldness and I understand that is hard to do when you are on steroid cycle.

So first thing to do is to choose steroids from the list I provided before.

Second thing to do is to start with just one compound.

Third thing to do is to start with low dosage and watch carefully.

Below is a list of products which can help fighting with hair loss during steroid cycle. You can google information on each of them.

  • Finasteride
  • Proscar
  • N2shampoo
  • Azelex
  • Vitamins for Hair
