    Whey based weight gainers and hairloss

    I tried a whey based weight gainer product which is supposed to have about 600 calories and 56g of protein per serving. I took 1 serving per day for a week and started noticing hairloss at unprecedented level. I am on propecia for about an year and it was working well before this happened

    Did anyone else have the same problem when using whey and other dairy based health supplements? Is there a better whey based product which will not cause hairloss?

    If it bothers you, just start making your own protein shakes instead of buying tubs of whey. That way you know what you're putting in yourself and it's cheaper in the long run.
    Probably the most important thing is that when things get really bad and the world looks its darkest, you just have to throw up your hands and say "Well, alright!" cause it's probably gonna get a whole hell of a lot worse.

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    if anything whey is protein so it would eliminate the tiny possibility that a protein deficiency is causing your hairloss, that's all it does

    For your peace of mind, switch to soy-based protein for some time and see if it makes any difference.

    You are probably just shedding, because there is no way a whey protein shake is that androgenic haha

    edit: I'm taking a ton of whey protein and every other legal supplement you can think of (besides PH's) and I think its making me healthier, and gives more shines to my locks
