What causes hair loss?

Poor Nutrition

Hey we get it. Long hours and stressful times mean getting your five-a-day may not be at the top of your list of priorities. But vitamins, minerals and nutrients are the one thing that your body needs to maintain a healthy scalp which is the perfect  environment for optimal hair growth. All cells in your body need Vitamin A to grow.

Spinach, milk, sweet potatoes, yoghurt carrots, pumpkins, eggs and kale are all high in beta-carotene, which our bodies convert to Vitamin A. 

Your diet might also be lacking in key minerals and vitamins such as iron, zinc protein and B-vitamins to grow. A shortage of these essential nutrients may affect the quality and quantity of a person's hair.

Illness or other medication
