What is alopecia?

Alopecia means hair loss, and it can be of any type: diffuse or focal, chronic or acute. Many women experience excessive hair loss. In fact, it is one of the most common complaints from female patients. In most cases the hair loss is not severe.

Hair loss is difficult to quantify. To help determine if you have problem or not, you should known that the human scalp has between 100,000 and 350,000 hair follicles. Therefore, loosing 50 to 100 per day is normal, as hair usually have a 2 to 8 years life and then naturally fall. Generally speaking, hair loss is a normal part of aging. By the age of 40 or so, the rate of hair growth slows down. New hairs are not replaced as quickly as old ones are lost.

Supplements for hair loss

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, which reduce the damages that free radicals may cause to your body. These damages are not only done to your skin or organs, they can also harm your hair, possibly turning it brittle or weak. It has been found that having a diet low in vitamin C can lead to dry or splitting hair. Hair loss is not directly associated with a deficiency of this vitamin. However, it can increase the likeliness of hair loss and other hair-related conditions.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps to increase circulation, and has been found to cause capillary growth, which includes hair growth. If you have dry hair or are starting to lose hair, a supplement of vitamin E might be an interesting solution. It will also reduce the hair split ends, and reduce damage caused by excessive use of a hair dryer.

Zinc

Zinc deficiency can also be a cause of hair loss, or also hair color change. Several theories are studied currently. The most probable one is that zinc deficiency weakens the hair, making the new hairs more likely to fall quicker than they should. Taking a zinc supplement has been found to boost hair regrowth in studies. You can try a supplement for 3-4 weeks to see if it gives your hair a boost.

Biotin

Researches have found that biotin (vitamin B7) may improve brittle nails and thinning hair. A biotin supplement for hair health is thus a good idea. Furthermore, because it water-soluble (meaning your body get rid of what it doesn need), there is limited risk of overdoses and side effects.
