Welcome to HCM,

One of the main reason for hair loss is anemia and in your case you might have anemia as they say you look pale.

so take branded Iron capsules daily one for 2-3 months.

You may get this problem if you have any infection on your scalp like fungal infection,dandruff dermatitis.

So if you have any such problem then go for treatment accordingly.

Do not keep your hairs more wet.

Ok and bye.
