Vitamin deficiency and hair loss

Recognizing deficiencies is quite simple, as they are manifested by unpleasant symptoms such as fatigue, muscle cramps, blurred vision, dizziness, hair loss, soft and brittle nails ...

Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D plays a key role in hair loss. Vitamin D deficiency therefore leads to hair loss and dull hair . When vitamin D is lacking, hair follicles weaken and hair does not grow back.

In addition, a study has shown that a lack of vitamin D also leads to an increase in the amount of sebum on the scalp. A real vicious circle, because the more oily hair we have, the more we wash it, which results in drying and straightening afterwards and therefore in hair that weakens and ends up falling out.

Iron deficiency

Iron deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies! Pregnant women, the elderly, vegans and vegetarians are at increased risk of iron deficiency. One of the consequences of this deficiency is hair loss . Iron plays an essential role in blood formation and hair has a high need for blood, if it does not get enough it starts to fall out .

B vitamins are essential for strengthening hair and helping to maintain healthy hair. Indeed, they stimulate the production of keratin , a protein that forms hair and nails.
