May be normal: Hair falling may be normal. If your hairs are long, will look like falling more. Some people worry about hair falling with no medical illness. You may want to check it out with your doctor.

See a dermatologist: Sometimes, medical problems like iron deficiency or hypothyroidism may be the cause. More commonly, female pattern hair loss is a slowly progressive problem. There are medicines that may help, notably finasteride and minoxidil. If medicines fail, hair transplantation is effective. You need to see a dermatologist for an evaluation of the problem and to start treatment
