I'm not convinced that creatine increases DHT to the point of causing hair loss. I know this topic has been discussed extensively here before, but I've noticed that a single study claiming creatine causes hair loss is repeatedly cited. Could someone post a link to this study and any other studies that either support or deny its conclusion?
I know creatine makes the shortlist of most effective supplements, but if there's a risk that it may cause hair loss, I might consider stopping using it. I've been taking it for over a year at 3g four times weekly.

There was a study, but its only one study and I dont believe it has ever been replicated. I really dont think creatine and hair loss is a concern.Thermolife Eternal Rep
