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.

There are no supplements that can replace a healthy diet and exercise. However, adding a supplement protein source to reduce your meat intake will lower your fat consumption and ultimately lead to weight loss.

None. Protein supplements will not help. The only way to help hair grow is to find out and correct why it is not growing (for example iron deficiency is a common cause of hair loss) or to use topical Rogaine (available over the counter) or oral finasteride (available by prescription).

No. Amino acids actually help hair grow. Amino acids are the 'building blocks' of protein. And hair is made up of a protein called keratin. So no, amino acids do NOT cause hair loss.

The biggest reason for loss of hair after gastric bypass is lost of nutrients getting to the hair follicles. Make sure you are getting enough protein, it is recommended you get 60 grams of protein or more a day.

User Avatar

Before deciding whether weight loss surgery is right for you, you should know a few things about gastric bypass and hair loss. Following gastric bypass surgery, your stomach will be the size of a small egg. Your body will be forced to go without the calories and nutrients it has grown accustomed to. During this period, you may begin losing more hair than normal. To reduce hair loss, many patients take supplements designed to nourish the hair. Adding protein shakes to your diet may also minimize hair loss. While these steps will not stop hair loss completely, they will help you maintain a healthy head of hair.

Using liquid protein or powder supplements to achieve weight loss instead of eating can be a practical way to lose weight. However, you don't want to stay on this method for more than a period of about four weeks.

Unfortunately there are no real cures for hair loss. There are a wide range of products that profess to cure hair loss but it has been stated that there is no evidence that these work. In order to try and prevent hair loss one should eat a proper diet. It is stated that things such as protein, iron zinc and biotin may assist in the prevention of hair loss.

hair,I've never heard of this before and find it unlikely that it would cause hair loss, but be careful because some of the products do contain high levels of formaldehyde. For more info see - http://columbushairtrends.com/keratin-straightening-columbus Keratin is a protein and too much protein applied to the hair can make it brittle causing breakage thus giving the look of hair loss. While they can help damaged hair, you should use hair care products with protein sparingly and not long-term.
