If you chemically treat or damage your hair, the folicle itself may be damaged. Try only washing your hair every other day. It's also possible that you have a hereditary condition that will cause you to lose your hair. See a dermatoligist to have tests performed if you're concerned.

There could be many problems. A crash diet, stress, pregnancy, or any metabolic disorders. A major surgery or a recent high fever could be the blame. If hair doesn't appear to be growing back, see your doctor. Once the problem is found the loss should quit after treatment unless doctor determines it's heredity.
