# hi, welcome to icliniq
There can be multiple causes for hair loss and it also depends on the pattern.
Increases shedding of hair more than 50 per day can happen due to stress, water change, nutritional deficiencies, high fever like dengue/malaria/ typhoid, certain medications, harsh shampoos, dandruff. this is called telogen effluvium which usually stabilizes in 3-4 months by taking supplements.
Sometimes more than shedding you might notice thinning of individual hair which points towards a balding pattern. In this case you will require topical minoxidil as a serum along with supplements.
Avoid consuming whey protein.
You can also get a blood check up done for vit d, vit b12, serum ferritin and tsh.
Since i havent examined your hair or got a complete history, you can start out by taking a supplement like androfol m or follihair a once daily after food and use a sls paraben free shampoo.
