Zinc actually does play an important role in the health of one’s hair. The average adult body contains anywhere from two to three grams of Zinc. 63% of the body’s Zinc resides in the bone and muscle, while another 20% is in your skin tissue. When zinc levels are low, testosterone levels may also drop. DHT levels have also been known to rise when zinc levels are low. DHT can inhibit the growth of hair by blocking hair follicles from receiving the required nutrients and blood flow they need to live. This, in turn, can lead to hair loss.
If you think you are experiencing hair loss due to a zinc deficiency, DHD recommends you see your Trichologist as soon as possible to best diagnose your case of hair loss
