Crash diets and caloric deprivation of less than 1000 calories per day or sudden weight loss of more than 20 pounds have been reported to be associated with hair loss.

Like any other organ in the body hair needs food to grow, so it is important to know the quality and quantity of various nutrients necessary for healthier hair. If nutrition is a factor in hair loss a good balanced diet is the best way to correct it.
