Watching your hair go down the drain -- literally? Find out what's normal, what's not, and what you can do about it
Turns out, not getting enough vitamin D may be just as bad as overdoing vitamin A. Researchers at Cairo University found that women who experience hair loss had lower levels of D ... and the hair loss only worsened as the levels dropped.
