In brief: Many possibilities

Hair "turns over" faster than just about anything else in the body, and many things - from illness to injury to surgical procedures to hormonal imbalances to infections to stress - can interfere with the normal hair cycle.
Don't waste your money on tonics and "hair vitamins". Let a dermatologist go through the possibilities and find the cause. (the yellow stuff on the roots is normal.).
