Can mineral Imbalance Cause Hair Loss?


Have you ever wondered your unhealthy lifestyle can be a reason for your hair loss and hair thinning problems? Yes, it can be. Factors including unhealthy diet, poor sleep, excessive stress, environmental factors, and unsuitable hair care products can altogether cause hair loss. Due to the ease of access to the internet, more people are aware of the risks of hair loss so that they try to adopt a healthy lifestyle in order to overcome those risks. However, one of the reasons for hair loss that most people do not talk about is the mineral imbalance.

Mineral imbalance can cause many medical and cosmetic disorders in the body, including hair loss. Since identifying the hair loss due to mineral imbalance is not that easy, most of the hair loss doctors are unable to find a suitable treatment for that. At Hair Transplant Dubai clinic, the certified hair transplant surgeons can diagnose and prepare a blend of hair restoration treatments in order to restore the lost hair and repair the damaged one.

The minerals that your body requires for its proper working include iron, copper, sulfur, zinc, and silicon. Keeping these minerals in balance is essential for the proper functioning of the body. Either excess or deficiency both can lead to so different irregularities, one such major irregularity is hair loss.

In order to deal with such a kind of hair loss, we need to determine the culprits behind the mineral imbalance. Here are some of those.

Unhealthy dieting regimen

Consumption of unhealthy foods is the topmost reason for the mineral imbalance. Eating too many fast foods do not only leads to nutritional deficiency but also contributes to the mineral imbalance. Moreover, alcohol intake and consumption of processed foods may lead to mineral deficiency despite having a healthy diet. Such a deficiency can be overcome by undergoing a hair loss therapy in Dubai.


Certain medicines if used for a longer period can induce nutritional and mineral deficiencies in the body, leading to hair loss. In opposing to that, many medications may also boost the required level of nutrients that is also not healthy.


An emotional stress or physical trauma can also disturb the level of mineral in the body, which leads to several irregularities including hair loss. In a stressful event, your body tends to reduce its capacity to absorb the essential mineral and nutrients, cutting short their supply to the normal functioning of the body.

Why minerals are so important for healthy hair?

Minerals are basic building blocks for regulating and performing different functions of the body.

Iron is the vital part of hemoglobin, an enzyme that regulates the oxygen supply to the different organs of the body. Its deficiency can lead to anemia and create many disorders in the body. Rich sources of iron include nuts, beans, spinach, and green vegetables.

Zinc plays an important role in keeping you healthy. It is involved in the number of chemical reactions in the body including hormones creation. A required quantity of zinc in the body is necessary to keep a healthy immune system and wound healing system, which are important factors in term of hair growth.

For proper enzymes function, your body requires a suitable amount of copper. The deficiency may lead to anemia and other irregularities that can cause hair loss. You can get a good amount of copper from grains, nuts, potatoes, organs meats, and dark leafy vegetables.
