Toxicity

A systematic review of 47 studies published between 2007 and 2017 revealed that toxic agents found to be associated with alopecia included: thallium, mercury, selenium, colchicine, boric acid, arsenic, and certain synthetic opioids.2

Nutritional Deficiencies

Nutrients are the building blocks to our cells, so it makes sense that poor nutrition is closely linked with poor hair quantity and quality.  Hair is also physiologically optional, so it won’t flourish unless you’re in good health. Critical micronutrients for hair health include iron, zinc, niacin, selenium, biotin, vitamin A and vitamin D.3 Meanwhile, low protein diets can lead to hair loss as hair is made up of 95% of the protein keratin.

Medications

It’s not just heavy chemical treatments that cause us to lose hair. Even seemingly innocuous medications like antibiotics, birth control pills and even ibuprofen have been shown to cause short-term hair loss.4
