No evidence of that: Typically side effects of taking whey protein are focused on the digestive tract: reflux, bloating, gas, constipation, cramps, nausea, decreased appetite and upset stomach. It may also effect blood sugar levels and needs to be used with caution by those with diabetes. I see no side effect reports of hair loss. Safety has been tested for daily doses of 30 grams for six months. Good wishes:)
