In brief: Depends on cause

There are many causes of thinning hair and some, like hypothyroidism or vitamin deficiency, are reversible.
Vitamins needed for healthy hair include 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. See http://www.Naturalnews.Com/012893.Html for other ideas.

In brief: Also control stress

Many people have reversible thinning of the hair about 3-4 months after a significant stressful experience.
The time frame is related to the hair growth cycle that may very slightly from person to person. So besides good nutrition it is important to learn to handle stress too.
