What type of vitamin deficiency causes hair loss?

Alopecia or hair loss can happen due to medical or genetic conditions and can be permanent or temporary. When your scalp or any part of the body loses excessive hair, it can make you feel depressed. A few people do not pay heed to hair loss problems until they get bald patches on their scalp, or the hair loss becomes visible.

Vitamin deficiency can cause loss of hair

Lately, if you are suffering from any medical condition, it can be visible on your skin and hair. More than 20% of women and 60% of men suffer hair loss problems. (Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia, 2016)

Pre-menopausal women suffer from hair loss due to iron deficiency, and that also contributes to the production of hemoglobin. Iron provides oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. The hair stops growing if there's an iron deficiency. Often after childbirth or any other gynecological conditions, women can suffer from anemia. Ulcers and cancer can cause blood loss, and hair loss too.

Vitamin D deficiency can also cause severe hair loss and hair thinning. If the deficiency is more, it can seize the growth of hair.

If someone has zinc deficiency, he or she might experience severe hair loss. It can cause thinning and breakage of hair.

Though rare, Selenium deficiency can damage the hair follicles not only on the head but from the other parts of the body. If you notice your eyelashes or eyebrows falling, it may be due to selenium deficiency.
