When it comes to your tresses, iron deficiency is a well known cause of hair loss. Iron deficiency may lead to hair loss due to its role in DNA synthesis, as the hair follicle matrix cells are among the most rapidly dividing cells in the body. In addition, many of the genes identified in the human hair follicle may be regulated by iron.
