Thanks for posting your query.

Falling of hair is natural. A hair fall up to 75-100 / day is within normal cycle. It may increase following a spell of sickness or a stressful situation and then gradually reduces.
Therefore if your hair density is going down day by day then you need not worry.

Few other causes are as follows
1. In males around their twenties male type of baldness will be established and the intensity will be decided by their hereditary factors.
2. Apart from these if you have dandruff you may likely to have more hair fall and the dandruff has to be corrected with appropriate shampoos and other applications.
3. If you’re anemic or your diet has inadequate protein or aminoacids / lacks certain minerals essential for hair nutrients like copper, zinc, selenium, etc., it can lead to excessive hair fall.
4. Excess use of hair drier, coloring agents, straightening or curling procedures are also leading to hair become weakened and leads to excessive hair fall.

I suggest you to consult a dermatologist; he / she will evaluate you and determine the cause of hair fall. Appropriate treatment can be decided accordingly.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have other enquiries.

Get well soon.
