Whey protein has nothing to do with hair loss or hair growth. I will take advice the doctors of the Coalition over the advice of a trichologist any time, let alone the assistant of a trichologist...

that's gotta be some of the dumbest advice ever.

Lifting weights can lead to increased hairloss (as in my case) because of the change in bodyhormones, and whey protein can stimulate muscle growth, but whey is in no way responsible for hair loss.

I doubt that why causes hairloss. The only way I believe it can happen is if Whey would increase levels of androgen & for a long period of time like some steroids do.

Oddly enough I just had a gentleman come into the office today for consultation, as a NW6, and he swears that since he started taking whey protein on a daily basis he has had regrowth. It wasn't much hair he had on top but he claims that before the whey protein intake started he had only three hairs on top. I'm not endorsing what he said, just saying it's very contrary to what is being said by the initial poster.
