Iron deficiency is a common underlying cause of hair loss in women.  Correct iron and ferritin (stored iron) levels are essential to hair growth as they support healthy hair cell proliferation and help to keep your hair in the growing (anagen) phase. Iron deficiency anaemia, be it mild or severe, can cause your hair to enter the shedding (telogen) phase sooner than it should, leaving you with excessive hair fall and also hair is not growing to the length it used to.

The best sources of iron are red meats, but it can also be found in certain dark green vegetables and nuts.

If you suspect you are anaemic, you can ask your doctor to check your iron and ferritin levels. However, it’s important to note that readings within the low-normal range can have a detrimental effect on hair growth as hair is a non-essential tissue. If you are deficient in iron, you can ask your  trichologist to recommend a nutritional supplement and changes to your diet.
