I was taking D3 for about 9 months last year. I was taking 3-4,000iu per day (any smaller dose just wont effect your system contradictory to what the recommemded daily allowence is). To be honest it did nothing for my hairloss... it certainly got worse during that time.
Vitamin D3 is a mood enhancer as it will get the endorphines and other hormones flowing and will do wonders for your skin. It is widely documented in medical journals that it can help protect against prostate cancer. However, I think it may raise testosterone levels at the same time and boost the immune system. I'm not sure hairloss sufferers need their immune system boosted but just re-adjusted or re-programmed.
I jumped on it because in a medical study vitamin D3 was shown to grow hair on bald mice and since it had the prostate link I thought I'd found the cure. I jumped off it because my hairloss was getting worse.
It didn't work for me. Although I was taking other things as well. I wouldn't completely rule it out yet.
