Several myths and rumors are spread about steroids concerning hair loss. Which steroids increase hair loss and which ones don’t cause hair loss?

Whenever we hear about hair loss, our hearts start to speed up. I think everyone can agree that no one wants to go bald.

Continue reading to learn more about the best steroids there are that won’t cause you the pain and sadness of saying goodbye to your hair. 

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)

DHT is a steroid, it is also an androgen hormone.

Androgens are biological characteristics found in males. This includes voice, body hair, and muscle mass.

DHT is derived from testosterone. Most people will consume steroids with large quantities of DHT. DHT causes one to produce muscle rapidly and may better build testosterone

Of course, this may seem like an easy and fast way to gain muscle, but like any steroid, large amounts of DHT will lead to hair loss.

Hair Loss from Steroids

If you are new to the steroid world, you are probably entirely focused only on packing as much muscle as possible. What some people don’t realize is that a lot of different side effects come along with these drugs. 

There are not a ton of steroids that don’t cause hair loss.

One of the most common side effects of steroids is hair loss. Steroids cause Testosterone levels to rise which will improve the body’s levels of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). If you produce too much DHT, this will result in hair loss.

When dangerous steroids are consumed, this results in hair thinning and, eventually, hair loss.

The “safest” steroids to prevent hair loss

The majority of steroids have a direct influence on the bodily production of DHT and are commonly used for enhancing muscle mass. 

Not everyone is going to react to a steroid the same. Some people may experience hair loss, while others experience no hair loss at all.

It is ALWAYS necessary to speak with your care provider before any steroid intake. Blood work is crucial before starting a steroid.

The steroids you are about to read about include compounds that aren’t classed as anabolic steroids, while doctors can prescribe many for several reasons. These are the best steroids to take to enhance your chances of keeping your hair.

Oxandrolone (Anavar)

Anavar is one of the least androgenic steroids you can get. It is important to consume this steroid in small doses.

Anavar prevents protein breakdown in your body and promotes muscle building without the adverse side effects of other anabolic steroids. If this steroid is taken in the proper doses, your chances of losing hair are slim to none. However, if this drug is abused, you will suffer the consequences.

Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca-Durabolin) 

Nandrolone decanoate, also known as Deca-Durabolin, is a steroid that is one of the safest for hair. This compound converts 5-alpha reductase into the relatively harmless DHN rather than DHT.

 Deca-Durabolin is a steroid injection that contains 50 mg/ml of the active ingredient nandrolone decanoate. Like any other steroid, it is crucial to take the correct dosage.

Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone (Oral Turinabol)

Turinabol allows users to maintain their muscle mass during the calorie-deficient part of their cycle. This drug can also give you a significant amount of strength.  

Turinabol is almost 100% effective in preventing hair loss. It is also considered one of the safest steroids on the market.

Still, large enough can disrupt your body’s hormonal balance and accelerate genetic hair loss or premature baldness.


Trenbolone is a powerful anabolic steroid invented in the 1960s. This steroid is incredibly dangerous for a reason. Although it has been proven to be unsafe, heals faster and produces muscle quickly.

Other names associated with this compound are trenbolone enanthate, and trenbolone hexahydrobenzylcarbonate.

This product has also been proven to prevent hair loss in the correct dosage. 

Although this steroid has many perks, it is hard to get your hands on. This steroid is mainly used in veterinary practice today.

When trenbolone is injected into an animal or person, it’s absorbed from the blood too quickly to start the quick results of muscle growth.


While steroids are excellent for building muscle, they can have a significantly detrimental impact on your hairline. Understanding the side effects and results of steroid use is always essential. 

One should always seek a medical provider’s opinion before consuming any steroid. 

Undoubtedly, steroids can damage your hair follicles and ultimately contribute to premature hair loss over time. This article lists a few of the steroids you can find that may not have any hair loss side effects

We hope you continue to do research and that you will safely consume steroids. 

Now, let’s get big!
