I have noticed over the past few months, that I seem to be losing a lot more hair than normal. Around where my bangs are, it's is really thinning. Is there something, such as a vitamin, that may decrease this?

One of the most effective ways to reduce hair loss is to know the exact reason why you are losing hair in first place. If your hair loss is being caused by excessive chemical exposure or extremes in temperature, then vitamins will be of no help. Instead, you will need to figure out how to save your hair from the extremities. Having said that, here are lists of vitamins that will help solve your problem, if your problem is really diet-related.

Vitamin A – Red, orange and yellow coloured vegetables are great sources of this vitamin, which is responsible for developing healthy cells and tissues in the body. Do not eat any Vitamin A pills without consulting your dietician as overdosing on Vitamin A actually increases hair loss.

Vitamin B – There are several different vitamins under the B group. Peas, beans, cauliflower and eggs are a great source of this group. Vitamins B3, B5 & B6 should be taken to reduce hair loss, and there are tonics and pills in the market to provide you with these. Vitamins C & E – These are good for your overall blood circulation and oxygen levels in the blood, so having these in good amounts will obviously impact the nature of your hair. Consult a dietician / trichologist before you start any vitamin regime.
