See title.

I bought some for gymcelling, but I've heard it bad for hair.

I'd rather by skinny with a head of hair than ripped and bald.

Creatine raises DHT according to this study:

Creatine supplementation may, in part, act through an increased rate of conversion of T to DHT. Further investigation is warranted as a result of the high frequency of individuals using creatine supplementation and the long-term safety of alterations in circulating androgen composition. STATEMENT OF CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Although creatine is a widely used ergogenic aid, the mechanisms of action are incompletely understood, particularly in relation to dihydrotestosterone, and therefore the long-term clinical safety cannot be guaranteed.
If you have shit-tier genetics and/or are laughably unhealthy, Creatine might overtime speed up MPB.

It's not like you're going to wake up one morning and notice half your hair gone. You'll probably have 0 issues.

If you take WAY over the recommend amount then yes creatine will cause hair loss, similar to what vertu said. like if you take 1 giant ass scoop each day like 2x a day then yes. but if u just stick with the good amount then u fine
