I have my cosmetology license, and some things that you may not think about can cause hair loss:

~too much coloring/perming: the hair isn't actually falling out, it breaks off near the roots-so it looks like it is falling out.

~Wearing ponytails, and hair clips too much: If you think about your hair in a clip or ponytail holder-it is being "pulled" and puts a lot of stress on the root/scalp. The constant pulling can cause the hair to come out at the root.

Other than that...I would definitely take a look at your diet. Try more protein, and more fat.

***Mel, I also lose hair postpartum. Fun, isn't it???
