Dull hair and poor growth can be a sign of a zinc deficiency, Oily hair a sign of vitamin B deficiency and hair loss may indicate a lack of vitamin B1, or vitamin C.
There are medications you can take for hair loss and even surgery, but does this really solve the problem or does the problem go much deeper. Sometimes it is not medications we need but a natural alternative. In fact, some experts believe that natural hair loss treatments can give you some of the best benefits and make your hair grow in a healthy abundant way.

One that is rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruit, fish, eggs, beans and nuts. Don’t skip meals, eat low fat meals, and start to get rid of the salt, coffee, sugar, and chocolate.
