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.

In brief: Depends
Thinning hair can be hereditary, something in your genes, or environment.
But the wrong diet can cause or contribute to hair loss too. If that's the cause, then a hair healthy diet rich in the basic vitamins and minerals may make a difference. Too much vitamin a has been associated with hair loss.
