Does ingesting creatine powder or capsules cause hair loss?

I have read conflicting claims (e.g., see below) and wonder whether there have been some more serious scientific studies: (mirror) is inconclusive:

I personally don’t consider this one study to be a serious cause for alarm because of the points I mentioned above, but it’s up to you to weigh out the possibilities for yourself. (mirror):

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. (mirror):

Creatine has been implicated once in increasing DHT. The study has not been replicated, and direct studies between creatine and hair loss have not been conducted (mirror):

Short answer; maybe.
