In brief: Hair loss
In some instances hypothyroidism can cause allopecia or scalp hair loss.
More often however, allopecia is an associated autoimmune disorder along with thyroid disorders like hashimotos disease.

In brief: Thyroid & hair
After the adrenal gland, the thyroid is the most important endocrine gland in the body.
It is rresponsible for all metabolism & under function leads to numerous signs & symptoms including hair loss, fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, bad nails, outer loss of eyebrows, constipation, depression, adhd, and more. T3 (liothyronine) is the only active hormone converted from T4 mostly in the liver and gut.
