What Vitamin Deficiency Causes Hair Loss?

What vitamin deficiency causes hair loss and breakage?

Hair loss vitamins such as Biotin, Niacin (Vitamin B3) and Vitamin C, and minerals for hair loss such as Zinc and Iron, provide essential hair nutrients to nourish healthy and longer hair. Getting enough of these key hair growth vitamins in your diet can help prevent baldness in both men and women.

Here, we look at the key vitamins for healthy hair, and why a lack of them can contribute to hair fall and thinning...

Vitamin C

The production of tyrosine is dependent on Vitamin C, and tyrosine is important for the maintenance of the structural integrity of hair strands and the cells of hair follicles. Vitamin C helps build collagen, which is important for hair growth, but maintaining the strength of hair is just as crucial. Vitamin C plays a necessary role in absorbing iron, which keeps our strands strong and healthy.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E on the scalp can help promote hair growth, and reduce the effects of thinning. Some claim that eating certain foods can help your body use Vitamin E to repair damage to hair follicles, and topical application in an oil can even reduce hair dryness. Overall, Vitamin E is a champion for promoting hair growth.

Vitamin B

B vitamins help grow hair by aiding the body to handle stress and stress can cause hair loss. Inositol, one of the B vitamins, has been shown to speed hair growth. B12 is another B vitamin that prevents hair loss because B12 is a component of the hair itself. Many people are deficient in this nutrient, especially vegetarians, because B12 is mainly found in meat and eggs. The B vitamins are best taken together and are frequently sold with the label B Complex.

Folic Acid

Folic Acid, an essential B vitamin, is vital to the proper functioning of the human body. A deficiency in Folic Acid can cause a host of medical problems, including the stunting of hair growth.  Most reputable hair supplements contain Folic Acid, as it also works well with taken in conjunction with other hair growth promoters.


Zinc is important for healthy hair. Insufficient zinc levels may result in loss of hair, hair that looks thin and dull and that goes grey early.


Deficiency of Choline can cause stress which can lead to hair loss. Choline supports the healthy balance of the body which has a huge impact on the health of hair and scalp.

Silicon Dioxide

This mineral helps to strengthen your blood vessels and improve circulation, which can stimulate the blood flow to your scalp and encourage growth.
