    However, simply working out a lot will not significantly elevate your DHT levels or cause you to experience hair loss.

    Thank you for clearing this up!!

    Hey, i got the same feeling. I am serious in body building since 6 months ago. I take whey protein very regulary. Up to 80 grams per day. My hair was so healthy and thick before this. Recently i feel my hair is getting thinner and lesser. Then i started search online for the cause. Although i still have not found any solid article about the direct link between whey and hair loss. But I will definitely stop the whey taking. Dude, i think you should stop too.

    After taking a mix of whey+ creatine + skimmed milk powder in a shake (65 gms protein) for about 3 weeks, i am experiencing hair loss. I planned to stop my protein shake. My doubt is that will saw palmetto be useful in this case ??.

    Alaguraj,

    I’ve seen no reports that suggest whey protein or creatine causes or exacerbates hair loss. And while you may choose to stop taking this combination, your hair loss may very well continue if its genetic. The two most effective non-surgical hair loss treatments to date are Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil). You may want to speak to a physician about these drugs and learn about the benefits, limitations, and potential side effects.

    Best wishes,
