Does anemia lead to permanent hair loss?

When I had my annual physical in January, I found out that I had an iron deficiency. I wasn't terribly good about keeping up with my iron supplements(they are harsh on my stomach) until I noticed that my hair was breaking easily and now I've been slowly losing hair. I'm a female in my mid-20's and there's no history in my family of hair loss. If I get my iron levels back on track, will my hair grow back and get healthy again?
