None are effective: There are no vitamins, herbs, supplements, nor foods that are proven to slow hair loss or improve hair growth. Maintaining a balanced diet of healthy foods, and taking 1 "multivitamin + minerals" tablet each day, should keep a person in normal, good nutritional status... so his scalp and hair should be as healthy as they can be. A doctor can evaluate unusual hair loss for hormonal problems, etc...
