    Mohamed,

    In my opinion, there is no correlation between taking whey protein and hair loss. You can follow an interesting thread on this topic here:

    Check the information on the product label or consult with a physical trainer/doctor to determine your ideal serving size for whey powder. All protein supplements are not the same.

    Best,

    Momo,

    Frankly, there simply is nothing concrete to suggest Whey protein consumption is associated with hair loss. Various individuals share anecdotal stories (ie: I experienced a big shed when I first started taking Whey protein), but the fact of the matter is that nothing has been proven. As long as you aren’t taking supplements that alter hormone levels (like testosterone), it’s unlikely that you are altering hair loss via Whey protein. Additionally, I believe the term ‘moderation’ refers to using the protein in reasonable, recommended amounts. I suppose if you ingested large amounts of protein (far more than recommended), you could see some adverse effects. However, taking it in ‘moderation’ should be fine.

    I started taking two scoops a day (one in the morning and one in the evening) and I have a bald spot forming…I am going to the dermatologist today…but it might be from the protein because that is the only different thing I’ve been taking.
