It may be a coincidence if you see more balding guys drinking coffee. Topical caffeine is better than intake. as a matter of fact coffee is an estrogenic compound.

Caffeine is also said the increase levels of Cortisol, which is basically a stress hormone and stress causes hair problem.

Being a heavy drinker myself, could this really have been an aggravating factor for my hair loss? Wow we never touched up on this during my consultation. I would love to know. thanks!

Caffeine does not contribute to hair loss or balding. For some, the caffeine in coffee can actually stimulate hair growth. This is because caffeine speeds up the production of ATP, which is the energy of our cells, helping your hair grow faster.
