However research has shown that some protein juices contain additives that affect an individual’s hormonal balance. These protein shakes contain elements like creatine and other inorganic hormones that contribute to the growth of muscle.

When the addition of protein shakes and high proteins cause hair loss, what should be a part of your diet to reduce or stop hair loss?

A healthy diet that can help reduce or stop hair loss should contain a mixture of certain proteins and vitamins. Fish, eggs, soybean, cheese and milk are some elements that are rich in protein.
