Hi everyone
I have been using kratom for two years now burning around 24 grams a day for PTSD and mild arthritis pain. I am going to be 70 years old. Kratom has helped me in so many ways including lowering my blood pressure. But a year ago with a full head of hair it began to fall out. (I'm not talking about pattern balding) Baldness does not run in my family my father had a full head of hair when he passed at 86. The last 6 months it has increased so it could be the kratom for me. I have tapered down to 3g once a day and I must say it still helps with why I use it. I want to see if it reduces my hair loss. Has anyone else experienced losing hair since using kratom for over a year at 24r or higher? By the way the good news is I had no problems with the taper. I would not suggest those who have great pain or depression follow my lead. I would rather be bald then be in a lot of pain or depressed! Its just a test for me. I will update you if I see a decrease in my hair loss for anyone who might be interested. holycow#1

Everyone is different, but I can tell you that hair loss is not a factor when it comes to Kratom for me personally. Kratom has been with me for around 3 years now, and I've been steady at around 1 oz. a day for quite some time.

Male here, and a father who had no hair at 50+, I have been worried, but now that I've passed that age, I know I have nothing left to worry about. But I read somewhere that your mother's side is the primary determining factor here, and not the father.

I had pretty significant hair loss and thinning only a couple of years ago, but it had more to do with post Cancer stuff than anything else. Kratom has been with me the whole time and lately I have been seeing a fairly rapid return of hair (and not thinning hair), over the past 12 months or so. Things are almost back to full normal here.

So if Kratom had any negative effect on me in that area I am pretty sure I would have noticed something by now.

I am no medical or genetics expert though. You are probably right to have caution in this area.

I have been taking Kratom for over 8 years now & have had no Hair Loss Problems. I have never heard of Kratom causing Hair Loss but this has not been studied before so I couldn't tell you if it causes Hair Loss or not. I take about the same amount that you used to which is around 20 grams a day.

Hello!
I saw a post in a Facebook group about this and some people have also experienced this. I myself have also experienced a receding hairline recently, and I have only been taking Kratom for about 3 months now.

There's been other posts and topics about this. In some weird way I think it may for some people. It's just a weird coincidence that so many topics about this for it not to be true.
