Zinc for hair loss?
Doctor Answers 3
If you have been improving on the minoxidil and are undergoing shedding now, I would recommend having some labs checked to see if your iron levels are too high or if you are deficient in something else. There may be a correctable reason for your hair loss. Zinc can help if you are deficient in it.

In my opinion, zinc can both help hairloss and cause hair loss. Zinc deficiency and low dose supplements are helpful. One must limit the duration of use. High doses for a long period will increase shedding.Good luck.
