There are many possible causes to hair loss.
1. Heating utensils like Blow Dryer, Hot Curler, Flat Iron-(lay off of the heat)
2. Shampoos and Conditioners-Under Conditioning, drying shampoos that strip your hair. A lot of alcohol in shampoo.(change the shampoo and try something natural. Old remedy eggs and mayonaise, it stinks but it helps)
3. Water with heavy metals- I just found this one out. I lost a lot of hair one year, the water also killed all of my fish too. I kept sampling the water in the fish tank but didn't figure it out for a while. I just thought I couldn't get the appropriate balance in the tank. That same year the Water and Sewage company had to disclose there was something wrong with the water. We have the same problem again(You can use a carbon filter in your shower head to correct it.)
4. Medical issues-You should tell your doctor if you are losing a lot of hair because it may be a sign of something serious. I saw this on Oprah about 2 weeks ago, this woman went to the show and the Dr. tested her and found out that she had some sort of medical issue it was diagnosed because of the blood tests she took. The only way she found out was because of the hair loss.
So, I don't mean to alarm you but you may want to check the water samples first, you can pick up a kit at the pet store for cheap or search for the testing yourself or call your water company to test your water for contaminants. My water showed gasoline, drugs, and a whole bunch of other stuff in our tap water. Never drink DC water if you come here LOL!
Then if there is nothing wrong with your water then go to the doctor, tell him about your hair loss if it is extreme or losing it by the roots he will test you. If your doctor doesn't test you, take blood samples or urine samples then find another doctor.
Good luck, I'm curious to know what happens. I need a new filter!0
