Hair: Many causes.
You could see your hairstylist or barber - your gender is not indicated.
You could also have your doctor to refer you to a dermatologist.

Multifactorial : Thanks for your question! This is one of the most common questions I see in clinical practice. Essentially it could be iron deficiency, thyroid issues, or androgenetic alopecia. There may be other more rare causes too. In short, I would go to your doc and get some iron and thyroid checked!
