Hair loss is one of the worst cosmetic disasters that could happen to both men and women. When it hits, you will do anything and try everything possible to counter it. Also called alopecia, it is essentially the falling or losing of hair that reaches abnormal levels. It could be linked to anything from hereditary reasons, childbirth, and stress – both emotional and physical. In most cases, hair loss is caused by vitamin deficiencies.
If this is the cause, then you can actually do something to prevent baldness. Take care – do not be fooled by the vast number of hair loss solutions available on the market and heavily advertised on all types of media. Medical researchers work valiantly to address the problem of hair loss found across the world. Some researchers claim that hair loss is heavily linked to a lack of vitamins – and say a sufficient intake of the right vitamins could effectively counter hair loss. Vitamins are known to contribute greatly towards the growth of cells – those also responsible for the growth of hair.
Vitamin H also known as Biotin or the B-complex vitamin is one of the strongest that fights hair loss. Found in nuts, eggs and meats – a number of creams and shampoos also have it. So the next time you are out buying any of these, take time to read the fine print and choose those that include Vitamin H. Vitamins A, E, C and even Zinc can contribute to hair growth – so it would do well for you if you consciously start including them in your diet if you are already experiencing hair loss. You could start by including foods that contain them in your daily diet, but they are also available in capsules and tablets. Better still; get your doctor’s advice first.
