    Does the overwhelming influx in testosterone caused by weight lifting have an effect on hair?

    A - the increase in testosterone is not that significant, it won't make a massive difference

    B - depending on your genetics, iirc testosterone can either make hair grow or stop growing, its different for different parts of your body and different people... no idea why. This might be really old info so google it

    I don't think lifting weights causes much of an increase in Testosterone, definitely not enough to cause sudden hairloss, unless you're taking steroids. If you're balding it's due to your genetics, my advice is go to your doctor you may be prescribed Propecia.

    The increase in testosterone (which then converts into DHT which makes your hair thin) from weight lifting isn't really enough to noticeably speed up hair loss but probably will to a degree
