Common Causes of Hair Loss
“The most common cause of hair loss that I see in my practice are hypothyroidism, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalance and stress,” says Anya Rosen, M.S., R.D.
“Inadequate intake of essential nutrients and vitamins, such as iron, protein, biotin and zinc can also contribute to hair loss.”
Other common causes include aging, excessive hair styling or treatments (like bleaching), inflammation, medical conditions like alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder), some medications, scalp psoriasis, and scalp infections.

The Role of Vitamins in Hair Health
The gene-regulating mineral zinc also plays an important role in essential functions within a hair follicle and can help to accelerate follicle recovery and to stop follicle regression.
Zinc also contribute to the development of hair follicles & hair follicles cycling

Niacin in help in the role of promoting hair growth

redirecting blood vessels to area of damage skins, delivering the oxygen and nutrients required for scalp health and promotes hair growth.
Collagen promote hair follicle growth through amino acids and proteins. Collagen also strengthens the scalp’s dermis and helps antioxidants to fight free radicals which damage the hair. Notably, collagen is an anti-aging protein and can even prevent age-related hair loss.

Help in reduce hair loss, Besides, copper can help to boost collagen and elastin, increasing the fat cells on the scalp. This is desirable as an increase in fat cells on the scalp can strengthen and protect the hair follicles, hence “significantly increase hair growth.
