Female Hair Loss due to Vitamin Deficiency

Jun 4, 2008
The human body needs a certain amount of vitamins in order to stay healthy. Each vitamin works to help the body in some way. They help maintain the overall health. When there is a vitamin deficiency, one might notice a change in their appearance. For example without enough potassium in your body you may wake up in the middle of the night with severe leg cramps.

A vitamin deficiency may cause mild to severe symptoms. What you discover and assume severe may be treated with a simple vitamin. Without the right amount vitamins your hair may feel course and rough instead of soft and smooth.

If the hair loss strikes after a change of medication, then it is easy to figure out that the hair loss is due to a side effect of the medication. But many times there are underlying reasons for hair loss that go undetected. One such hair loss is a deficiency related hair loss. Malnutrition or deficiency of nutrients and vitamins can easily cause hair loss. In fact, hair loss may be one of the first tell-tale signs that there is a nutrition problem.

There are four different types of vitamin B which also cast adverse effects on the hairs condition if there is not enough intake to help function properly. Biotin is a complex B vitamin that curbs hair loss and contributes highly in keeping hairs firmly attached to the scalp. This vitamin is found mostly in milk and egg yolks. Para Amino Benzoic Acid is another B complex vitamin that is just as important to hair nourishment as are vitamins B6 and Inositol.

Vitamins are in almost everything. When you read the back of any type of food or drink they will list the vitamin and the amount in terms of daily consumption so you will know how much you are getting of a particular vitamin. Reading the back of packages will keep you more aware of what you are consuming and how many vitamins you are getting. If you are not sure how many vitamins you need you may want to consult with your doctor or a specialist to help you decide what is right for you.

It is only logical that our hair is affected by whatever you put in your body. What you food and drink will be reflected in the health of your hair. Vitamin deficiency is not necessarily caused by a poor diet. However, eating a diet based on fast food or on precooked meals will contribute to unhealthy hair. At first you won't realize the damage it does but eventually you will start to notice the hair loss, poor texture of hair, breakage, and an unhealthy look. Therefore, a change in dietary habits or food intake is completely necessary to ensure the proper amount and kinds of nutrients are being taken in order to prevent hair loss and help regenerate hair growth.
