Ostarine is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) used by some bodybuilders, but its effects on hair follicles deserve examination given its mechanism of action.

Does ostarine cause hair loss?

While ostarine is generally well-tolerated, there is a possibility that it could trigger temporary shedding or exacerbate male pattern baldness for genetically predisposed individuals.

Ostarine's Mechanism

As a SARM, it binds androgen receptors similarly to DHT, one culprit in male pattern baldness.

Potential Risk Factors

Genetics, use of high doses long-term, susceptibility to DHT-sensitive baldness patterns can raise risks of shedding.

Most Side Effects Are Mild

Studies report few hair-related issues, and any shedding tends to be mild and reversible upon stopping use.

Potential Triggers

Temporary telogen effluvium may occur 1-3 months after a prolonged Ostarine cycle due to follicular miniaturization from DHT exposure.

Key Points

Proper dosing/cycling, genetics, monitoring for early signs of excess shedding and consulting a doctor can help mitigates hazards for most people.
