Hi. Greetings. In women, Anaemia, hormonal issues, environmental factors , pollution, stress, junk food and poor diet could cause you to lose hair. After adequate evaluation by dermatologist, You'll probably need treatment with hair care lotions or serums - something that has vasodilator properties and improves thickness of hair and reduces hair loss. Have a good balanced nutritious diet.See a dermatologist near you to get evaluated if you have any other scalp problem. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Warm regards.

Hi all that you have stated can contribute towards hairfall , please check on your hemoglobin thyroid profile vit D and vit B12 . For hormone induced hair fall you require a different line of medications.diet enriched in omega 3 fatty acid ( walnuts flaxseeds oily fish) zinc (egg, whole grains) colorful veggies , protein based food helps.
