Yes, diets can cause hair loss. Now, you may be asking yourself what types of diets cause hair loss and what types of diets promote healthy hair? First, you should know that hair loss to a certain degree is normal. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology says that the average person can lose up to 100 strands of hair per day. Health conditions and lifestyle choices do play a role in hair loss, which includes your diet.

1. Protein & Vitamins

Hair is made up of a protein called keratin. Without enough keratin, vitamins, and minerals, you may experience hair loss, or weakened hair. Keranique Keraviatin Hair & Scalp Health Supplement contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 and biotin, zinc, and saw palmetto extract. Together, this powerful blend works to promote hair strength, support scalp health and helps to address the underlying cause of your poor hair health.

2. Cutting Calories

When people want to lose weight, the first thing they do is cut calories. While this may help you shed pounds which might be your goal, it may also lead to an increase in the amount of hair you shed too. Just like other parts of our bodies, our hair relies on the nutrients and blood flow to the scalp to stay healthy. If you are eating less, you may not be getting the required amount of nutrients to maintain a healthy head of hair.

3. Keto Diet

The keto diet has become massively popular among Americans. The fundamentals to following the keto diet is eating a low-carb and high-fat diet. The science behind this is that the body will learn to burn fat instead of carbs which triggers weight loss. One of the less talked about pitfalls to the keto diet is potential hair loss. When your body experiences a dramatic change from what it’s used to, it can experience stress, thus leading to hair loss.

Consult your doctor before making any major diet changes to make sure that you are getting the nutrients you need and that your body is getting the energy it needs to start the day strong, and stay strong throughout.

    I have been on the Nutrisystem program several times and lost weight but my hair has gotten thinner too. Do you think it could have been the diet? I am not on the program now. I don’t know what to do about my hair.
