"Hello, I completed the No Fap Reboot without watching Porn, i felt all the benefits "more energy, faster growing musclemass, more socialising, funnier, decreased hair loss, no more depression, regular morning woods, it worked so much and it worked better with all the girls."

"I am so convinced of this trend, having binged heavily in the past and seen a noticable difference in my hair (grease, thinning, shedding)"

"I didn't start losing my hair until i got an incredibly sexy gf and we were doing it 3X a day. When we tapered off so did my hairloss. I think a lot of indulgence (masturbation or sex) will have roughly the same effect. Excess always seems to lead to woes."

"Now after a while of noFap, my hair loss seemed to have stopped. Now more fine hair on the pillow, no more hair on the comb."

xenon, others, where are you guys at with this? are you guys still shedding a lot or no?

i am looking at my hairline in the mirror and there is without a doubt a shit load of small black hairs on the hairline. (not just blonde) in some places, it is actually visible now to where i can see them with the naked eye without a magnified mirror. however, my hair continues to fall out all over my head at an accelerated pace.. STILL. it honestly doesn't make sense why it keeps falling out.

i think my itch has slowed down a lot on the hairline area, but i still get itch in other areas of my head. i wonder if nofap just stops your hairline from receding, but other areas are still a target?

it's clear to me the "itch" goes away when i eat a full diet and when there are no orgasms. however, it doesn't stop hair fall all the way. the new hair is there.. and BLACK, but still very small and not enough to make an impact.

so far it seems like for this "to work", it might take 2 or 3 years being completely abstinent as I started cutting down on fapping massively around april or may of this year and i'm only seeing tiny little black hairs on the hairline now. but still get the itch occasionally (although i've been relapsing 1x every 30-60 days days and having wet dreams sporadically)

i think only way to truly stop hair loss for real is to practice nofap until body has reset, follow very strict healthy diet, vegan if possible (which is good, all vegans age very gracefully), work out, and follow IH routine would solve the problem.

I have lasted a month in November, but haven't managed to go longer than stretches of about 10 days this past month. My sex drive has been through the roof ever since I dropped fin, perhaps even higher than it was before starting. It's annoying.

During that month of abstinence, I did notice a dramatic decrease in shedding and my scalp didn't itch pretty much at all. The strange thing is I don't really shed much hair, no matter the regimen. I can pull 1 or 2 hairs pretty much any time of day, and there were a few periods of about a week or so when I was straight up shedding, but other than that, I don't usually see any "hair fall". Definitely not dozens of hair in the shower most other people report. But my hairline is still receding.

The itch is very real when I masturbate. There has to be a connection.

Also, I agree that it has to take a much longer streak of abstinence for results to show. Pretty much all regrowth testimonies come from the people who abstained for months.

Sanderson, how bad is your hair loss? Where would you say you are on the NW scale? Xenon, how bad was yours when you saw regrowth? As I understand, you are the only two users on this board to report regrowth from abstaining. Curious as to how useful this thing could be for me (I'm around NW2).

dam i'm jealous.. i'm mostly doing this in hopes that it fixes finasteride no libido. why don't you do IH protocol and jump on a healthy diet? i'm sure that will be enough. or you can try the thread from the bodybuilding forum.

dude im at like nw2 or nw3, i'm not sure. my hair is really long right now so it doesn't look like i have hair loss, but it is still bad dude. it continuously sheds a lot, but not really an itch. i think my body might be in shock to be honest and it is why, i am losing hair all over my head not just on top.

You mean this list of supplements: http://www.immortalhair.org/mpbregimen.htm ? This is probably a strange question to ask on the eponymous forum, but do they work? I didn't really look into it yet.

I think masturbation really makes my hair worse. But refraining from jerking off also has other physiological and psychological benefits for me. Decreased social anxiety, increased energy, better mood, all these "superpowers" the NoFap crew report, are very real to me. It's not just in my head, I don't think of NoFap as an achievement (I don't wear the badge lol). I notice stronger libido and better sexual performance, too, if I abstain for weeks, although I haven't had a chance to test this for a minute now. Getting laid is not an option, since I got extremely out of shape, which was presumably caused by my thyroid problem. I started gaining weight rapidly at the end of 2013, at the same exact time my hair loss got worse. Still overweight by 15-20 kg, despite doing cardio almost daily. I see that IH sells a thyroid supplement, will probably check that out after I do my new blood work.

I've been using minoxidil for almost a year, which did nothing. I'm pretty sure it actually damaged my hairline even more, and it also very well could've contributed to my weight gain (a listed side effect actually). Ditched it about two weeks ago, hopefully I won't shed, since I had no regrowth to begin with.

My hair loss was pretty mild until about a year ago. I noticed the first signs of recession in 2008. and I'm pretty sure I'm not perceived as bald or balding by the general public. Still, I know this shit is happening.

sanderson, if I were you, I would definitely stick with the "hard mode" NoFap and working out/diet. Many people report a stronger libido, and even cured ED after doing long terms of NoFap. These things are of course different for everyone, but the general consensus seems to be that you need to go at least 3 months to "reset". How long have you been on fin by the way?

Hey, I've been reading up a lot about hair loss related to PMO in terms of people's opinions and views on it also people that have gone on NOfap and what were their benefits. A little back ground on myself 22 Male, realised I was losing hair 8months ago. I use to masturbate 3-6 times a day. Have been doing for about 9 years, but not as frequently back then.

Just like u all I would do anything to restore my hair. I HAVE gone on No gap and before I tell u my results I should first tell you I relapsed on the 29th day and binged.

The results I had from the 29 days were my hair was thicker not by a lot but enough to cover some gaps. My head felt 'fuller' I use to have 10-15 hairs on my pillow which reduced to less than 5 through out the nofap. As for when I had showers I didn't see much of a decrease in the hair falling out until the 3rd week (21sdays). In terms of hair growth my hair was growing at a decent rate but did not see any new hair growth other than a few on my hair line. Keep in mind I abstained for 29days.

This is where I'm really disappointed with myself. When I relapsed and binged my hair line started thinning out a few days after and I LOST hair on the left of my hair line. I panicked and was depressed. I'm starting to see my hair lose that thickness I gained over the 4 weeks.

I have decided to start again and am on my 4th day. I plan to hold out for 3 months at the very least or go as far as completely stopping PMO. I will post back within a month also I'm having a haircut today so I can have my hair short and be able to study the progress also helps for less dandruff build up. Before I end this post I'd like to post my regimen.

1. NO PMO of course.
2. Scalp massage everyday 5-10 mintues
3. Inversion (includes you inverting your body at 90 degrees for 3 minutes everyday to increase blood flow to the head)
4. Diet consists of supplements, high water and protein such as chicken and egg mainly.

I will report back in a months time again. I hope this works

I completely stopped masturbating and my ejaculation but in sex - However I assume that just being horny without any masturbation is as harmful. Stopping masturbation "gave" me a very bad habit for long period of time now - to go on apps for meeting people / dating / sex ect', and it always goes to the sexual field. It gets me sexually stimulated for a long time - each time, It happens few times a week and sometimes daily. I hate myself for doing  that later as I know how harmful it is - but always go back to this again and again. Sad.

Get your protein from organ meats and shellfish bro, chicken maybe once every 2 weeks.

Broke my streak of 18 days recently. It straight up crushes my soul when I have to start the counter all over again, so I decided I'll stop counting (and thinking about it, cause it's weird) and just make sure I keep not watching porn. If I stay away from P, M and O should chill as well.

Hey, guys I just want to post a VERY good article on masturbation. The best summary I've ever read, really... Everyone who abstained for a long period of time can confirm that all observations are true.

"33 reasons why not masturbate"
http://www.majorleaguedating.com/reasons-stop-masturbating-jacking-off-jerking-off-and-fapping/


and a random testimony, which I found on the net:
"50 days of no fap testimony"
https://redditjs.com/r/NoFap/comments/2bbu3j/no_fap_50_day_experiment_benefits_and_more/

I've tried over 2 month nofap like 1 yr ago and it was like totally different life guys.... Of course shedding stopped and I've experienced pretty satisfying regrowth. Now I'm going on "hard mode" again, I want to last longer and I'm just sure I'll do it. I don't know why, but I'm just so confident about it.
For me masturbation means a tragedy for hair - it gets greasy, thin and weak just after a few hours after ejaculation. Not to mention other sympthoms...

I broke my 4 months of abstinence last night, but that was only a one off. Anyway, the reason I mention it is because I noticed my temples inflaming way prior to ejaculating. Therefore, I conclude that ejaculating is not the issue in causing follicles to inflame. There is something else *during* masturbating which triggers inflammation.

Whatever triggers this inflammatory response, it 100% causes follicles to miniaturize. Absolutely no doubt about it.

yeah i've had this experience as well. i think it is the nitric oxide release, leading to free radical creation peroxynitrite. however, post orgasm, the itch is more willing to come based on what you eat versus without having it.

"First of all, it is a lie that male pattern baldness is normal. Japan has the lowest balding rate in the world. But when Japanese immigrate to the US, they are bald just like everyone else. Genetics play some role in MPB, but only some role.

According Chinese medicine, balding or thinning hair is related to energy drain. Think about it. If your body is draining more energy than what is being produced, then your body will start cutting down non essentials. Hair is considered a non essential.

So what is draining energy from your body? The biggest energy drainer is sexual activity. Your body makes sure that every single sperm is free from defect, and that takes a lot of energy. Other big drainers include stress, insomnia, digestive problems from eating junk, and heart problems.

My hair was thinning at one time. My family has bald gene. But when I stopped all sexual activities which include masterbation, my hair grow back to normal. Now I have a full head of hair even though I should be bald like everyone else."

Interesting excerpt, but I did notice he used the word thinning, versus receding. I could see the body cutting back and hair thinning over all, but MPB as far as the systematic destruction of the hairline in a pattern seems to be another beast entirely. What are your thoughts, Xenon? And what is your theory on say, 30 min of cardio for heart health?

The only time I have suffered from diffuse thinning is via a ketosis, gluten and, on other occasions, from wearing tight hats. From my own experience, I think that diffuse thinning seems to be largely related to increased acidity in cells. Why this possibly happens, could be due to these cells being located in skin which is pulled tightly over the hardened skull, which then makes them more prone to hypoxia. Cells which struggle to form ATP due to oxygen deficiency, do so via anaerobic glycolysis, which then leads to increased acidity and inflammation. As another example, if you enter a low oxygen environment these cells will quickly inflame. So, without doubt, the tightness can be a hypoxic / inflammatory pathway.

And also without doubt DHT is playing a part here because we have evidence that reduced DHT from propecia use has helped reverse diffuse thinning. What adverse effects is DHT having upon these cells? Studies point to increased inflammatory IL-6 and reduced IGF-1; studies point to increased DHT in hypoxic cells. So I think that all of these combined facets (including others such as low thyroid, exhaustion, stress, etc) all, ultimately, lead to increased inflammation.

Similarly so, the heavy pillow compression to the temples also induces hypoxia because of cells being pressurized against the hard skull every night. I know for certain this causes inflammation, but it also makes me wonder if this is also leading to increased DHT because of pressure induced hypoxia?

As for cardio? I couldn't really advise, though I personally feel that walking lots is a great exercise for heart health.

Yes, but the issue seems to be more related to the upregulation of DHT receptors in follicles. For instance, if there are lower numbers of receptors in cells, then they will not be targeted by DHT to bind to. So you could have someone with high DHT, but without the receptors, it will not enter the cell and will have no effect. This may explain why some guys can fap excessively and not lose hair.

The question we need a definite answer for, is, why these receptors abnormally upregulate in some men's scalps and not others? Hypoxia? Genetics?

BTW fapping is not the only issue which causes the conversion of T to DHT, it just adds to it.

As for buddhist monks... many of them thrive off gluten as a replacement for meat.

I seriously doubt buddhist monks even actually abstain for long periods of time or anyone really abstains for really long periods of time. The full libido power I think is too difficult for people to abstain from unless they had a really good reason.

There's 100% no doubt in my mind the "itch" is directly related to to having an orgasm. I've had enough experiences where it disappeared completely after no fap, and then came back after an orgasm. It's not an argument. The question is what the itch actually is, how it relates to hair loss, and if you have no itch, will it stop hair loss.

It's not an argument. The question is what the itch actually is, how it relates to hair loss, and if you have no itch, will it stop hair loss.

Yep. For me here's a general list I know caused my hair line to recede:

1. Excess fap
2. ketoacidosis from starving myself throughout high school
3. Friction from obsessive combing
4. fight or flight stress from spending too long on video games
5. Poor circulation / hypoxia from laziness
6. wearing very tight baseball cap everyday for years
7. Grains / gluten
8. Application of chemical irritants - gels, hairsprays
9. build up sebum / sweat due too lack of washing
10. Pillow compression
11. Poor ventilation
12. Lack of sleep (exhaustion)
13. Anxiety issues
14. Temperature disturbance

There's prob more I've missed, but they're the triggers that come to mind.

Yes, but the issue seems to be more related to the upregulation of DHT receptors in follicles. For instance, if there are lower numbers of receptors in cells, then they will not be targeted by DHT to bind to. So you could have someone with high DHT, but without the receptors, it will not enter the cell and will have no effect. This may explain why some guys can fap excessively and not lose hair.

The question we need a definite answer for, is, why these receptors abnormally upregulate in some men's scalps and not others? Hypoxia? Genetics?

BTW fapping is not the only issue which causes the conversion of T to DHT, it just adds to it.

As for buddhist monks... many of them thrive off gluten as a replacement for meat.

pretty similar for me. i notice it also if i lay on my back on my bed, and have my head tilted up by the wall and use a pillow for support, I will get some itch.

regarding keto, i agree with this. however, i'm having problems finding the right carb to use. i've tried juices like OJ or Apple, but it tends to not help the problem. i know roddy says it's because "not enough nutrients" so drink more milk, but i'm honestly not sure about that. mercola says no to fructose, yet how can he control cortisol?

According Chinese medicine, balding or thinning hair is related to energy drain. Think about it. If your body is draining more energy than what is being produced, then your body will start cutting down non essentials. Hair is considered a non essential.

So what is draining energy from your body? The biggest energy drainer is sexual activity. Your body makes sure that every single sperm is free from defect, and that takes a lot of energy. Other big drainers include stress, insomnia, digestive problems from eating junk, and heart problems.

My hair was thinning at one time. My family has bald gene. But when I stopped all sexual activities which include masterbation, my hair grow back to normal. Now I have a full head of hair even though I should be bald like everyone else."

i recently noticed i gained around 10-15 pounds after taking apple cider vinegar at least 2x a day, at home i will take it with meals and have had increased sleep. i can see how energy draining is related. i think it's difficult to stop energy draining and the best thing would be to treat the side effects of it, ie some carb for increased cortisol, posture for cortisol, ACV as a stomach acid replacement, not sure what else.
