Vitamin D and Hair Loss

Hair loss is inevitable and occurs with advancing age or it can be caused by other medical conditions. Aside from having a negative physical impact, hair loss often comes with devastating psychological consequences. Recently, medical professionals found a long-term, cost-effective solution to hair loss, thus eliminating the need for expensive medications and hair transplantation. Studies show that vitamin D supplementation alone can help fight hair loss:
1. Poor vitamin D intake and low blood levels of vitamin D are associated with higher prevalence of hair loss in both men and women. [941-960]
2. Vitamin D is crucial for hair follicle integrity. [961-963]
3. In patients with single bald patch, three months of topical vitamin D therapy (applied on the scalp) is associated with better hair regrowth. [964-965]
4. Vitamin D supplementation is effective in treating chemotherapy-induced hair loss. [966-968]
5. Treatment with vitamin D analogs is associated with natural hair follicle formation and increased production of keratin, a protein that forms the main structural constituent of hair. [969-972]
6. Nutritional supplementation of vitamin D or topical vitamin D analogues improves hair loss in patients with alopecia areata (a disease that causes hair to fall out in small patches). [973]
