sorry bro but I am not a scam. learn your place. do not judge people without asking anything. I have been using this too for a while. I am extremely pleased with the result.
Not sure who you're trying to fool. You join the forum, Name yourself ARGANLife and then your only two messages are to promote using arganlife products. Do the maths dumbass. Your product is spammed in almost any hairloss video on youtube even. Its a scam and everyone knows it.

I used to take whey protein as well, but back then I didnt had any significant hairloss and never heard of any side effects

Yes definitely, intake of protein supplements like whey protein will affect the hair growth due to increase in testosterone levels in the bloodstream.
Instead of this, you can take egg or pea protein powder as they are much better

The ingredients contained in your whey protein drink increases testosterone, triggering the chemical DHT and accelerating the balding process. If you are taking these, my advice is to stop taking the protein shake in daily routine and instead get your protein fix from high-protein food, such as chicken, fish and eggs. If you stop drinking Whey protein then your hair loss should slow down again.

That has not been demonstrated.

It's been proven, it raises dht. I suffer my worst hair loss when I was on creatine for about 4 months, literally went from a Norwood to 1 to 1.5 Norwood in that spand and was losing 100+ hairs a day. You can try it and see for yourself.

There is one (just one) short-term study with a small sample size showing a modest increase in serum DHT.

They did not measure an increase in the relevant parameter of scalp DHT. They did not measure a decrease in hair health.

FYI the standard for proof in pharmaceutical claims is two independent statistically significant studies.

that's bullshit. I'm full of testosterone right now; I mean I'm close to the upper range yet my shedding is calm now. 2 years ago I had less testosterone and my shedding was the worst. Always on same regimen for 4 years... DHT almost the same last 2 years.
But heyyy it's only because of testosterone and dht right? ; )

Neither whey protein nor creatine affect your hair loss. Being stressed, sitting on your *** in front of a computer, and eating garbage on the other hand, can certainly mess things up as far speeding your hair loss.

Bull crap, creatine will accelerate your hair loss. Who ever is thinking about using creatine, don't, trust me.

I started using creatine and the big 3 around the same time, 2 years ago. Been on both non-stop since. In that time I've recovered from a NW2.5 to a NW2

I've been living on 4 scoops of whey a day for the past year, and this scares me a bit.

My temples have thinned out a bit and my head has been itching like crazy recently. I think it comes down to a micronutrient deficiency because the only other think I eat other than whey is Greek yogurt.

my trichologist told me all BCAA's should be avoided, including whey. I've since changed to a sunwarrior vegan protein powder and a whey concentrate.
