Vegan Hair Loss: The Truth About How a Vegan Diet Affects Your Hair

Switching to a purely vegan diet is nothing short of an accomplishment. It takes hard work, a lot of willpower, and extensive knowledge and research. A vegan diet eliminates all animal products, including dairy and eggs, and relies on plant-based foods for nourishment. While it's possible to get all your needed nutrients by eating a plant-only diet, it takes a lot of careful planning and management. Sometimes, a lack of proper nutrition and knowledge on nutrition can lead to excessive vegan hair loss. On average, a person loses 100 to 200 hairs a day. If you notice more strands falling out and brittle ends, consult a health care professional to screen for underlying health problems. If your doctor gives you a clean bill of health, it's time to deeply examine your diet to make sure you're getting enough calories, minerals, vitamins, and protein to keep your hair as healthy as possible.
