Aside from that sugar-based diet do not contain vitamins like vitamin E, copper, vitamin D, iron, magnesium, and selenium, and other vitamins and trace minerals which are all necessary for a person to have healthy hair.

Without the right hormone balance, the body cannot produce the right hormones linked to the growth of healthy hair. DHT is often the hormone linked to hair loss. It is a harsher form of testosterone which when you have too much of it in your body causes your hair to not grow effectively.
