Vitamin D and hair

Anyone heard much about or got any experiences regarding vitamin D and hair? I've read that it is relevant for hair loss, but not anything about brittle, dry hair, hair growth etc.
Sarah.

Based in the UK. 2-something (2b?) hair. Very porous, fine and brittle/fragile

Hair loves: Drip drying, glycerine, shea butter, oils
Hair hates: Plopping, any kind of gel, most conditioners (scalp issues).
Hmmm, I haven't heard of anything about Vit D related to hair specifically. But I have been hearing a lot about Vit D in general and how most people need it. And "the powers that be" are thinking of upping the daily recommended amount because the current one is likely far too low.

FWIW, I did some research on it and I'm taking a Vit D supplement now in addition to my multi and my calcium (which has vit d in it) and Vit D-3 is supposed to be the best Vit D formula.

For hair and nails specifically, my dermatologist recommended that I take Biotin.
2b (with some straight under-layer, grrrrr)
Normal porosity, low elasticity, medium texture

(according to CurlGenie - HUGE surprise, I always thought I had fine hair and my stylists always agreed)

Tried CG for a summer, but it wasn't for me. I don't load up on sulfates and silicones, but I have no shame in using them when I want/need to! Currently loving LOOB.
I have vitamin d issues for some reason I cant keep my level up without a supplement. I never had any hair issues. When I started thyroid treament that really caused problems with dry hair and hair loss. It was a scary amount of hair loss.
