Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Do ketogenic diets cause hair loss?


All right, here’s another
common one that I get from a lot of patients. So I’ve noticed I’m losing hair on keto. Is this normal, and
what can I do about it? – So I can be, and it’s very
important to say what we should really turn this into because
what is much more true is I’m losing hair with rapid
weight loss because it probably has nothing to do with the diet itself. It’s the fact that the diet
is causing weight loss. And we do get this question a
lot, and here’s how I like to explain it to my patients
in a way that they can really understand. And that is when women have
babies, they don’t go home from the hospital with hair loss, right? But what they will find is
that when that baby is four, maybe six months old, all
of a sudden they’re starting to lose hair, and that’s
because giving birth is a big shock to the system, right? I mean it’s obviously a
good one, we all love it, but it is a big shock to the system. Weight loss is the same way. It’s a big shock to the system. We love it, we wanna have
it, but again weight loss is likely to occur four to
six months after the beginning of a period of rapid weight loss, and that’s because the
hair grows in phases. So what I tell patients
here is be patient. Let the phase pass, and then
the hair will come back. If people are really
worried about it I’ll say, start taking some B-complex vitamins. I mean I don’t think
there’s gonna be any problem with patients doing that. Whether or not that’s
gonna help, hmm, it might, but the bigger thing is
you just gotta give it time and let that phase pass.

  1. I lost hair on keto without rapid weight loss. Took me 3 months to lose 9 pounds. That’s not rapid. This diet makes your hair fall out, call it like it is.

  2. I want to start keto again but nervous about the hair loss, any suggestions so it’s less shocking to the system?

  3. Amazing things happened after I started Keto. In my first week I starts to get black hair growing amongst the grey. I’m 57 years old male with nearly 99% grey hair. The grey hair is inheritance, I started growing slowly since my late twenties. Another result that is fantastic is my urine , which I find really crystal clear unlike before which is slightly dark yellow, with the same water intake

  4. keto makes people stink, lose hair and mess up hormones……………but you get to be skinny without much effort

  5. I'm in 3 months on keto and losing so much hair, I know for sure I need to up my calories and take biotin and collagen but I read that vitamin b12 can help with this problem, is that correct

  6. 5mos on keto, and this is the first time in my life i am experiencing hair loss..first time ever 😢 i am not gonna change my lifestyle though but pls what to do??

  7. I was on Keto and I wouldn't say my hair was falling out. But it was shedding so much more and felt alot thinner. I cut off 6 inches and started taking biotin and collagen and it feels thicker again. And my nails are pretty strong now too.

  8. No 6 years Keto me and my friend both at goals and we're both thinner . I've actually thought about going off keto because I'm sick of having thin hair . He's lost his beard fullness to . See my thing is I've always loved keto but my issues are if it's such a good way of living why is it that we always have to take this and take that take salt do your electrolytes to your vitamin b and etc did our ancestors do that no absolutely not . I'm doing all that and still hair loss

  9. I went keto 6 months ago and lost 25 pounds at the start but have been at a good healthy weight for 4 months now . My hair is still falling . I see regrowth all over but it also falls out . My eyebrow hair is also falling . All hairs have a white bulb attached

  10. I'm on a keto diet because of the sugar on the upper limit, not because of the weight loss. In 10 months I lost about 7kg which is very gradualy. So my hair is thinning because of my keto diet not because weight loss.

  12. We do not love the trauma of it pregnancy puts us through. We love our babies. Let’s not paint an overly pretty picture of what going through it is like. Pregnancy and childbirth can really forever change the landscape of your body and your health for some people.
