Vitamins for hair loss - Pilfood, Vitacys, Omnivit. Hair regrowth vitamins.
Polyvitamins are often prescribed in case of hair loss, especially in women.
It is worth bearing in mind that only those persons whose diet is deficient in vitamins will benefit from this treatment.
Nevertheless, as it is difficult to detect whether or not there is a deficiency, it is often judicious to try classic drugs, a polyvitamin treatment and to prescribe iron, copper and magnesium.
