Many pharmaceutical drugs can cause hair loss. These include not just the obvious ones like chemotherapy drugs, but also beta blockers such as propranolol and atenolol, anticoagulants like warfarin, and drugs used to control arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, and other conditions. Damage caused by chemicals in hair products is another major contributor to hair loss.

Ensuring a healthy diet and lifestyle is the easiest way to maintain beautiful hair. Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, almost all of the B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, and vitamins C and E are vital for strong, shiny, and healthy hair.

In synergy with the amino acids lysine and proline, vitamin C helps build collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. Vitamin C protects hair against the damage caused by free radicals, which can make it brittle and frail.
