In brief: Unfortunately not

However your doctor should evaluate to ensure that hair loss is not due medical condition.
Many unregulated products claim to regrow your hair but most dose are unsubstantiated. Vitamin B complex and folic acid supplements may help if deficient

In brief: No pony tail

pulling hair is the most common cause of this pattern.
Also get your hormones checked as you may be hypothyroid or be perimenopausal and need progesterone or thyroid supplementation.
