We blame stress for just about everything. And, according to experts, stress can be linked to many things, including many ailments and conditions. But, when it comes to baldness, stress may be getting a bad rep.

In fact, according to recent research, iron deficiency could be the key culprit to a loss of locks. And, now they, the researchers, are trying to define the exact relationship between iron deficiency and hair loss, all in an effort to help those who are losing their hair. They even go on to say that maintaining a healthy hair line may require higher levels of iron than previously thought.

They go on to suggest that lack of iron may be responsible for many of the most common kinds of hair loss, but that due to limited conclusive evidence, more research and screening needs to be done.

Furthermore, iron deficiency is noted as the world’s most common nutritional deficiency and may be caused by an inadequate intake of iron, heavy menstrual bleeding, as well as other types of blood loss. And, treatment calls for more iron-rich foods and supplements.

Finally, if iron deficiency is detected early on and addressed in its early staged, patients may be able to grow hair more effectively, at least according to researchers.
