Low carb diets
Protein rich + micronutrient rich diets whereby weight loss is slow don't typically trigger much hair loss.
But it does sound like a telogen effluvium is possible of which other causes besides diet need to be considered including
- medications started or stopped
- seasonal shedding
- early genetic hair loss
Increasing carbs would not be the way to go. Ensuring ferritin above 40. TSH 0.5 to 3.0. See a dermatologist if it continues beyond 6 months would be a very good overall strategy.
