Our expert says:
Re, the most common nutritional problems associated with hair loss are iron and zinc deficiency. In practice, these are probably the only ones causing hair loss. From this you can see that taking hundreds of vitamins, nutrients, microelements etc. (who knows what some of the concoctions contain), will do no good. Biotin for instance, can make your hair grow strong and thick, but it will not stop you from losing hair. If the blood tests for iron and zinc are normal, a nutritional deficiency is not the cause of your hair loss and it should clear up by itself. Good luck.
