When you lack protein, your body starts to save a lesser amount of protein and it changes your hair growth cycle to resting and falling phase. Overall, you need to have an adequate amount of proteins, vitamins, minerals, biotin, zinc, amino acids, and the right nutrition for hair that is healthy and strong.

Hair loss is one of the most common problems found in both men and women. Some of the most common reasons for hair loss are hormonal imbalance, stress, and nutritional deficiencies etc. Can nutrient deficiency cause hair loss! Yes! Nutritional deficiencies can also cause dry and frizzy hair, brittle hair, and hair breakage. Moreover, inadequate nutrition can slow down your hair growth or even lead to balding. And the worst part is that it may take years before you notice signs of nutritional deficiencies on your scalp.Some of the essential nutritions for hair are protein that forms the hair structure, biotin that promotes hair growth, iron that supplies nourishing oxygen to the hairs, omega-3 fatty acids that prevents the hair from being dry and frizzy. There are also some vitamins that are crucial for healthy hair like vitamin B6, B12 and folate, vitamin C, and zinc.

Nutritional hair loss is the result of an imbalance of nutrition, which can have a negative effect on hair growth. For instance, if you have low iron levels then you’ll begin to notice that your hair is shedding, and the follicles are producing a thinner and thinner strand of hair.
