Also, many people with adrenal fatigue have hypothyroidism which is associated with hair loss

In brief: Adrenal fatigue

No - not the least because there really is no such thing as adrenal fatigue this 'condition' has been manufactured by purveyors of supplements to treat a constellation of symptoms - none of which actually respond to the supplements.
Alopecia is primarily a genetic or infection problem and can be normal as in receeding hairlines or as a result of acute stress which can cause 'telogen effluvium'.
