Why has my hair become limp and losing its texture along with break offs?

I have had hair issues for the last two years. My hair started by breaking off at the base of my skull . My hair texture began to change from the base of my skull. It worked its way up to the top of my head. My hair thinned and began breaking off. My hair now takes three times as long to blow dry. My hair is very limp. I have a third if the hair I had two years ago. I have been to several dermatologists. I have had blood work done. Everything was normal on the blood work. Any ideas?

Hi for any hair loss case first rule out androgenic ur case loss of texture and breakout of hair from the skull is mainly due deficiency of biotin.iron and folic acid
Take food rich in biotin like leafy vegetables.iron and folic acid rich oats.fruits and jaggery etc
Take biotin and iron supplementation in the tablet form like hairbless .or follihair both of them contains 10 mg of biotin. iron and other ingradients .take one tablet daily and also use biotin rich hair gels like hairgro gel daily once
