Does Bear Oil Cure Baldness?


Bear oil being applied to hairBaldness is something that mankind has been trying to combat since its earliest days. Primitive wigs and hairpieces go back to early civilizations like the Celts and the Sumerians. Ancient Egyptians would mix concoctions to put on their heads in the hopes of curing baldness. The Roman Empire saw the use of the combover by people like Julius Caesar.

One of the older hair care products that had also been used as a remedy for baldness is bear grease or bear oil. Dating back to the 19th century, bear oil had been used to style hair – similar to hair gel – but had also been promised to help cure baldness. Is that something bear oil can actually do?

Did You Mean Beard Oil?

You heard it right the first time! Bear Oil is different from beard oil. Beard Oil is used to help style your beard… as well as moisturize your skin underneath it. It’s a part of proper hygiene related to having a beard, but unfortunately, there’s nothing about beard oil that prevents baldness. That said, Beard oil can help to give your beard a thicker, fuller look.

What’s The History Of Bear Oil?

People have been recommending bear oil for cosmetic purposes going back as far as the 12th century. It wouldn’t be until 1653 that an Englishman named Nicholas Culpeper would write in The Physician’s Library about how bear grease cures baldness.

The popularity of bear oil as a potential treatment to prevent baldness in men would go on throughout Europe into the 1920’s. Additionally, it would be later found to be used by Native Americans as a hair product… but rather than being used to deter hair loss it was used as a type of hair gel.

Please note, the following information reflects the estimated average ballistics for each caliber and does not pertain to a particular manufacturer, bullet weight, or jacketing type. As such, the following is for comparative information purposes only and should not be used to make precise predictions of the trajectory, performance, or true ballistics of any particular .338 Lapua Magnum or .45-70 Government rounds for hunting, target shooting, plinking, or any other usage. The decision for which round is better for a given application should be made with complete information, and this article simply serves as a comparative guide, not the final say. For more detailed ballistics information please refer to the exact round in question or contact the manufacturer for the pertinent information. True .338 Lapua Magnum and .45-70 Government ballistics information can vary widely from the displayed information, and it is important to understand that the particular characteristics of a given round can make a substantive difference in its true performance. Caliber Type Velocity (fps) Energy (ft-lb) .338 Lapua Magnum Rifle 2930 4830 .45-70 Government Rifle 1680 2270 [Click Here to Shop .338 Lapua Magnum Ammo] [Click Here to Shop .45-70 Government Ammo] VelocityAs illustrated in the chart, .338 Lapua Magnum rounds - on average - achieve a velocity of about 2930 feet per second (fps) while .45-70 Government rounds travel at a velocity of 1680 fps. To put this into perspective, a Boeing 737 commercial airliner travels at a cruising speed of 600 mph, or 880 fps. That is to say, .338 Lapua Magnum bullets travel 3.3 times the speed of a 737 airplane at cruising speed, while .45-70 Government bullets travel 1.9 times that same speed.Various calibersEnergyFurthermore, the muzzle energy of a .338 Lapua Magnum round averages out to 4830 ft-lb, while a .45-70 Government round averages out to about 2270 ft-lb. One way to think about this is as such: a foot-pound is a unit of energy equal to the amount of energy required to raise a weight of one pound a distance of one foot. So a .338 Lapua Magnum round exits the barrel with kinetic energy equal to the energy required for linear vertical displacement of 4830 pounds through a one foot distance, while a .45-70 Government round exiting the barrel has energy equal to the amount required to displace 2270 pounds over the same one foot distance. As a rule of thumb, when it comes to hunting, muzzle energy is what many hunters look at when deciding on what caliber of firearm / ammunition to select. Generally speaking, the higher the muzzle energy, the higher the stopping power. Again, the above is for comparative information purposes only, and you should consult the exact ballistics for the particular .338 Lapua Magnum or .45-70 Government cartridge you're looking at purchasing.

Can Bear Oil Help Fight Against Hair Loss?

The idea of bear oil helping to fight against hair loss was originally built on the myth that because bears are so hairy then the grease or oil from bear fat would help grow hair on others. Yes, unfortunately, bear oil growing hair back is a myth. While it has been used as a hair care product, it cannot in fact regrow your hair.

As of now, there are no tonics or medications that can regrow hair. That said, there are some treatments (both surgical and non-surgical), that can help you regrow your hair.
