See below: Weight loss, low iron levels, poor diet and stress, along with thyroid and hormonal imbalances, can all cause hair to fall out or thin dramatically. If your mother had similar problem when young the loss may be genetic. Your diet seems limited. Have your iron levels checked. Premature greying sometimes is due to Vit B12 deficiency or low thyroid hormone>http://bit.ly/1LjnYuM http://bit.ly/1LjnYuM
