First and foremost the root argument, whether masturbation is beneficial or harmful for overall health, is in itself, highly debatable. Think of masturbation as a chemical reaction that unleashes a plethora of hormones, proteins and activates millions of neurotransmitters.
Genetic hair loss or alopecia is caused by the interaction between your genes, your testosterone (and DHT levels), time, and stress. DHT (5α-Dihydrotestosterone) is a male sex hormone, an androgen whose imbalance or metabolic changes can cause hair loss. Normally after an ejaculation, the body triggers a testosterone to DHT conversion in the prostate and testicles. When DHT circulates and reaches the scalp and if your scalp is DHT-sensitive then excess DHT buildup can affect the hair follicles and their roots.
Other important factors are stress and steroid-related toxins that increase the activity of 5-alpha reductase leading to greater testosterone-DHT conversion. Excessive amounts of the amino acid L-arginine, in conjunction with a high level of androgen hormone, can over excite the nervous system for excessive testosterone-DHT conversion that triggers a stress response.
Ancient Ayurvedic texts detail about semen (shukra) being the most purest form of the 7 bodily tissues (or dhatus). It is considered to be the source of life energy (Ojas) with directly reflects on our immunity and aura. Many spiritually inclined people who undertake celibacy consider loss of this energy via sex or masturbation as a waste of vital life energy.
Considering all aspects, excess of any activity will create unhealthy imbalances in mind, body and soul. No activity or habit should over rule our senses leading to a serious lack of mind control. Masturbation is considered to assist in the healthy rejuvenation process of semen and if done without guilt, misconceptions and excess, it should help relieve stress, provide pleasure and recharge the sexual organs. Guilt and misinformation can lead to stress than can adversely impact hairfall.
Hair fall is a combination of a lot of things including genetics, effect of medications, DHT sensitivity, etc. and masturbation, within natural limits and for recreation, is not its root cause.
