Does Keto Cause Hair Loss?

Many wonder whether creatine causes hair loss, but there’s actually more evidence to suggest that keto causes hair loss.

Recently, Moreno et al. found that 29.6% of keto dieters reported hair fall at 4 months. Contrastingly, 0% of low-calorie dieters reported hair fall at any time during the study.

Interestingly, subjects were only keto for 30-45 days (4-6 weeks). Thus, greater hair fall (seen at 4 months) probably persisted from the ketogenic diet period, which ended over 2 months earlier.
