Doubtful. Hair is made of protein. Hair loss is passed on genetically and is related to an overabundance of a certain hormone.

Well...there is a connection...

taking protein supplements to put on muscle , increases the testosterone in your body...

and testosterone is directly linked to the amount of DHT in your system , that binds with your hair follicle and causes it to miniaturize..

so Supplements and working out increase DHT. Increased DHT means an increase in hair loss if you are already genetically predisposed to Male Pattern Baldness.
