Does Creatine Cause Hair Loss & Baldness

I WISH I could blame creatine, but I don’t think creatine is to blame.

Losing hair is mainly a genetic thing…

…and I knew early on this would be my destiny due to my family tree.

Here’s a video that discusses creatine and hair loss and whether creatine can make you lose hair at a faster rate.

In the video, he points out that YES creatine does accelerate hair loss in men who are losing their hair already.


If your hair is thinning, it is probably best to AVOID creatine.

At some point, most guys lose the hair thinning battle, but if you are fighting for your hair I’d avoid creatine.

Also, here’s what I’ve found to be the most effective way to use it:

I actually recommend getting as lean as possible WITHOUT creatine, then hold that lighter weight for 1-2 months.

At that point, your skin will shrink down to your smaller size.

Then add creatine back in for a quick 5-10 pound gain in muscle volume.

This is a concept I made popular which I named “The Shrink Wrap Effect”.

Your skin will cling tightly to the muscles and show every detail.

It is one of the techniques I cover in my men’s muscle building course:

This works well because you will look lean and ripped.

If you add creatine when you still have a lot of fat to lose, it will cause your muscles to look puffy and soft. 

Hold off until you are extra lean.

Works well!
