A number of things can cause excessive hair fall
. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.
Excess of Pitta dosha in the body is the chief cause of hair problems. Pitta is increased by excessive intake of tea, coffee, alcohol, meats and excessive smoking. Pitta is also aggravated by eating too much fried, oily, greasy, spicy, sour, and acidic foods.

or heart problems, vitamin A
(if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.
Certain infections can cause hair fall. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.
Hormonal problems may cause hair fall. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair fall usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease
. Hair fall may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens
and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance

Many women notice hair fall about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy
, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.
Finally, hair fall may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.
