In brief: B Vits, A, C, D & E

Many vitamins are needed for healthy hair, including b3, b5, b6, b12, biotin & a, c, d, e & zinc.
While deficiencies can cause hair loss & taking these may prevent hair loss, they are not proven to restore hair loss in most, but are worth a try. The most effective are e, d & biotin.
