Possibly but highly unlikely.
Hair loss and thinning is very common amongst people that have very poor nutrition and simply aren't getting enough food such as those with anorexia or victims of a famine. This occurs because their body simply isn't getting enough food of any type.
If you don't have anorexia, you could be getting inadequate protein because of the following factors:
According to The Science of Black Hair, low protein diets produce weak, protein deficient hair shafts. These protein deficient hair shafts [are] found to be more brittle than normal hairs, and they also lack the colour, natural curl pattern and texture of normal hairs. Protein deficiency can cause hair to stop growing all together. That said, protein deficiency is very uncommon in the Western world or even amongst the middle and upper classes in the Developing world.
Vegetables have the added benefit of containing fibre, antioxidants, many vitamins and minerals.
