IRON. Iron is very important to maintain hair texture and density. For some groups of people, getting adequate iron usually is not a major concern. This includes:
- those that eat meat, especially red meat
- most men (higher testosterone level)
- some post-menopausal women
- hereditary hemochromotosis
For other populations of people, maintaining adequate iron levels in the blood can be challenging without supplementation.
