How can we check what type of hair do I have and what is the best thing to avoid hair fall. Does having short length hair help prevent hair loss?

In brief: No
Short hair does not prevent hair loss.
If there is underlying problem such as low iron, abnormal thyroid or hormone problems these can contribute to hair loss. Do not over process your hair, and do not do crash diets, if there is hair loss that concerns you see dermatologist for evaluation.
