Heard from whom?: If preventing himself from masturbating makes him pull his hair out, he'll lose more hair by not masturbating. If masturbating makes him pull is hair out, he'll lose more hair by masturbating. It goes both ways. Masturbating will lead to the same amount of male pattern hair loss as not masturbating. In real life, there is no relationship.
