Including genetics and stress, there are other factors that are directly related to hair loss in both men and women.  Of course, certain medication, such as cancer therapy can often result in losing one’s hair as can hormonal changes.  Hair loss vitamin deficiency is another. But, thankfully, you can reverse it if you act quickly, i.e. as soon as you notice your hair thinning or falling out.

Firstly, see your doctor.  He must examine you and run certain tests to ensure all else is fine, medically speaking.  At the same time, you can work on improving on your diet, including adding vitamins to ensure you are getting all the nutrients that are essential for healthy living and healthy hair.

Start by eating more fruits and vegetables.  Reduce your intake of animal proteins. Then, supplements.  Biotin (vitamin B7) and vitamin B5 are great in maintaining healthy hair and helps follicles to regrow new hair.   Vitamin B12 is also helpful as it helps produce red cells. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause problems for years.

Vitamin C helps to maintain proper circulation, which is the essential for follicles.  If you are a smoker, you should increase the amount of vitamin C you intake as smoking depletes this vitamin.

Vitamin A deficiency leads to weak, dry and brittle hair.  This can lead to problems of hair breaking off.

Therefore, in order to avoid such problems, it may be better for you to take specialized formulated vitamins to counteract this problem and help with your hair loss.
