I can tell you that weight loss shouldn't result in hair loss. I went to webmd and am posting a link of things that can cause hair loss. Things that stand out on the website indicate low protein, low iron, thyroid problems and alopecia areata which is a symptom of PCOS which affects a lot of overweight women, including myself. I originally thought alopecia only caused small patches of bald spots, but webmd says that it can also cause thinning. If you think it is a vitamin deficiency, then try that but I would still recommend seeing your doctor.
