There is no evidence, but i noticed shedding as fuck when using it, slowed down when i dropped it, so probably it can cause hair loss

Creatine increases dht, but unlikely to cause further hair loss. If ur not balding prone and you take it its not gonna change anything.

Creatine is a slight looksmin as it can bloat your face due to water retention

It increases DHT, which is only really an issue if the androgen receptors on your scalp are sensitive to it.

Some people respond better to creatine whereas others dont respond at all
Usually people who respond best to it are those with diets lacking in creatine or those with a higher ratio of fast-twitch muscle fibers

Are you sure it can bloat face? I was reading on bodybuilding forums, and they are all sure that creatine only binds water in muscle cells and does not do anything for bloat.

Ur right in theory it shouldn't... but based on anecdotes it does make my face abit puffier. I notice my cheeks are less hollow when i take it
