Extreme hairfall

My wife is facing extreme hairfall from the time she has shifted to Mumbai from Chandigarh . She has stopped using tap water to wash her hair and uses mineral water for wash. She covers her hair to avoid pollution . But still no improvement.  Is the hair fall because of change in city or due to some other reason
