As a Trichologist specialising in hair loss in women I believe I am possibly rare in so much as I have been making sure all my patients get tested for vitamin d and most are indeed low and therefore take vitamin d supplements and improve sun exposure. I have no formal research myself to show it works, but I do have tremendous success with hair regrowth and even if there is no definite improvement in hair growth then at least their general health and well being will improve. However, we do know that vitamin d aids the absorption of iron (there is a lot of research on ferritin levels and Telogen Effluvium) and also has the ability to switch of gene expression so could also help with FPHL. The role of vitamin D in hair loss is therefore something I feel very passionate about and would love to have more evidence, so If anybody would like to involve me in more research into this area I would be happy to oblige.

It is important to recognize that not everybody has complete success with stopping or reversing hair loss. There are many factors that can affect whether or not your hair follicles will produce hair again, but the most important one is whether or not the stem cells that supply the hair follicle with nutrients and new cells are damaged. If they are not then they will grow new hair. Some people regrow their hair only to have it fall out again and others experience a permanent restoration of the hair. Was this helpful? Yes | No You need to be patient because usually it takes one month to three months for any single hair to grow back depending on where it was in its growth cycle before it fell out. You can also expect:
Sometimes emotional or physical stress can lead to hair loss, which is a serious concern for most people and something they wish to reverse. However, due to the length of the hair growth cycle, people often only begin losing their hair weeks or months after the stressful event has occurred, and the hair loss can continue for several months afterwards. Luckily, hair will usually grow back on its own once the source of stress has been removed, but there are several things you can do to help the process along. By easing your stress and taking good care of your hair, you can reduce the effects of hair loss.
