Welcome to health care magic.
Severe hair loss over few months is called telogen effluvium.
It is a hair loss pattern usually triggered by a physical illness like viral fever, typhoid fever, hepatitis, etc which you would have about 3 - 6 months prior to onset of hair fall.
It could also be due to underlying anaemia, thyroid abnormalities and after delivery.
You need to check your hemoglobin levels, serum ferritin levels and thyroid status.
Please continue having good diet including green leafy vegetables, eggs, dates.
Your oiling and shampooing habits seem fine.
Hope this helped.
Take care

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Only a dermatologist can assess and assist.....

You will need several investigations...
You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities

Hair transplant is a final option

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
