In brief: Hair loss

Hair loss may occur in those with dietary disorders, iron deficiency, hypothyroidism, low estrogen states.
I am not aware of Folic Acid as an individual cause.

In brief: Hair and folic acid

Hair loss is not the first symptom that you think of with Folic Acid deficiency; nor is Folic Acid on the list of deficiencies or causes that you would associate with hair loss.
