If you are on a diet and losing weight, you are doing something really good for yourself. You deserve a lot of credit for taking care of your health.
But here’s one for the “no good deed goes unpunished” file: Dieting can sometimes cause hair loss.
How does that happen, and what can you do to prevent it?
3 Ways That Losing Weight Can Make You Lose Your Hair
Losing weight too quickly, being on a diet deficient in certain nutrients, and weight-loss surgery can all cause you to lose your hair.
You could avoid this altogether by losing weight more slowly. Many experts recommend losing only 1% of your body weight — or approximately one to two pounds — per week as the safest way to lose weight.
Diet is just one factor that can affect hair loss. If you are losing hair for whatever reason, you should know that modern hair transplant techniques do a wonderful job in restoring a vibrant and youthful appearance.
