Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hairloss could be due to various causes. The underlying cause for the hairloss has to be determined to help you with the right treatment and stop or minimize the hairloss. Maintain good hair care regime. Have diet rich in proteins, milk and milk products, and Vit-E. You should consider visiting a dermatologist for further evaluation and assistance. Option of considering hair transplant is the last one if no other treatment methods work for you.
Take care.
