When it comes to vitamins, we’re pre-programmed to think they can only do wonders for the hair, skin and nails.  But, according to New York trichologist Elizabeth Cunnane Phillips of Philip Kingsley, that’s not always the case. “Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K can be stored in our bodies and lead to toxicity, which may show up as brittle hair that’s literally breaking off, or, in more extreme cases, hair loss,” she says, stressing that the effects of high levels will also likely present itself through other physical symptoms, which should be investigated by a physician. “Another surprising source of hair that breaks is consuming excessive amounts of sushi, which can lead to high mercury levels.”
