From your description I am not certain if you are male of female. The cause of hair loss is generally very different between men and women. Gender differences aside, hair loss from severe iron deficiency anemia should reverse if it is corrected. However, people generally respond differently to such stress on their body and the hair growth may be varied. If you are a female, anything that causes hair loss can become permanent if you have the genetic code for female genetic hair loss. In other words only time will tell.
