Severe hair loss or Telogen effluvium is the result of the events in the past six months. Factors like Illnesses , antibiotics usage , anemia , PCOD or thyroid disorder , pregnancy , crash diet etc can cause severe hair loss. Taking care of the above factors and improved nutrition should get to normalcy. 
If the condition persists consult dermatologist for better management.
