Hi Confusco. Are you male or female? If you're male it could just be male pattern baldness and have nothing to do with your diet.

Do you have family history of early hair loss?

Also, have your Thyroid checked out by your doc. COuld by thryoid related.

I doubt this has anything to do with veganism if you really are eating a BALANCED vegan diet and getting enough of everything your body needs.

I started losing my hair at an early age of about 8. it turned out I had washed my hair for months with conditioner instead of shampoo....somehow I didnt get all the conditioner out of my hair, and it clogged the pores, thus leading to patches of my hair falling out.

so make sure youre washing everything.
this probably isnt the case, but just thought Id share a similar story.

goodluck figuring out the problem. i doubt its veganism related.

Go to your doc and ask him to do a blood test to see if it is your Thyroid-- and also a blood test to rule out other medical causes.

You need to start ruling things out with certainty before you can get to the bottom of the problem.

good luck :D

I've never heard of soy causing hair loss.

How are you getting calcium? From food or supplements?

Is your hair thinning all over? Or just on the top?

Will I think the anti-soy crowd says it causes hair-loss... among other things.

Oh yeah, that's right. I forgot to mention that I grew a 3rd arm after I started drinking soy milk :)

Since I turned vegan about a year ago, it appears that I'm losing more hair than I should. I started seeing hair on my computer keyboard(where I am often) and other places. Not huge amounts, but still, it worries me. I don't ever remember that happening. I take a multivitamin, flax oil, protein and I think I'm eating fine. Anybody have an idea what could be wrong :?:


I've noticed a lot LESS daily hair loss, and my hair feels thicker, since changing my diet a couple months ago. (I still have only two standard-issue arms, though.)

According to what I found searching google, normal hair loss is about 100 hairs per day, which could really look like a lot - especially if most of them are landing on your computer keyboard.

Check out this article about "telogen effluvium". I knew about thyroid and nutrition being potential factors, but I didn't know that something as simple as a fever could trigger so much hair loss. Another article said that weight loss could also be a factor.

While it may not be a huge factor, check your shampoo for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate, sometimes called SLS.

There is some controversy as to the harmful effects of this ingredient -- Google it & see what you find. I do believe the cancer scare has been debunked, but there are still other issues with it's effect on hair & skin. Unfortunately it is frequently found in 'natural' shampoos.

IMHO, Aubrey Organics has the best skin & hair care products to be found! But if you were to ask a room of women their fave products, you would probably end up with a list longer than the number of women in the room! :lol:
