Dear pta
If it falls out in patches, it could be due to a fungal infection or alopecia areata (http://dermatology.about.com/cs/hairloss/a/alopeciaareata.htm) Stress, hormonal changes, thyroid hormone abnormalities and low iron levels can also cause hair loss.
See a doctor to exclude possible medical causes and infections. If no definite medical causes can be found, you can try a supplement like Nu-hair and add a bottle of Lennon Bergamot essence to your shampoo.
