Title: Does the quality of local water determine how quickly people go bald?
Post by: P-Kasso2 on 02 December, 2018, 09:14:08 AM
This I am asking for a friend - because if there is one really valuable legacy my father left me was his genes  for an incredibly healthy head of hair. In fact every barber I have met says that I have a staggeringly thick shock of hair. And they should know.

This question is asked for a rapidly-balding friend of mine who has lived on the South Downs all his sad follically challenged life.

His theory (or feeble excuse) is that "It is all down to the local water".

I, of course, tend to pooh-pooh this idea but, to be on the safe side, is there any likelihood that the quality of local water determines how quickly people go bald?

In fact, does water affect the rate of hair loss at all?

I have heard of a few reasons given for baldness, but water quality has never been one of them.
as far as I know, it mainly comes down to genetics.

The only scientifically proven cure is apparently to become a eunuch.
Makes the legs cross just thinking about it.
