Hair loss could be hereditary or due to stress or other hormonal imbalances. If it is not hereditary you may consider seeing an endocrinologist or having an adrenal gland test to measure cortisol. Some basic supplements to help with hair loss are B-complex, adrenal gland support, omega 3's, biotin, and zinc. Good luck.
