I had the same problem at your age. Then, at the age of 25 I had my daughter by C- section and after my hair started falling out even worse. Everyone kept telling me it was normal after having a baby. Here I am now at the age of 36 and I can easily see my scalp on the top of my head. My hair is so dry and brittle now and I have even less of it. I too have had all the tests and nothing came up. I don't know what to do about it. I have tried everything. If you find anything out, please come back to post.

I have a similar problem.  I once had an abundance of hair and have noticed that I have a third of what I once had.  I've been told that if you have surgery where you are put under anesthetics, that you lose hair.  I believe this may be true because I've had at least 5 surgeries in my life and I noticed my hair falling out after my surgery 2.5 weeks ago.  A friend of mine mentioned that taking (2) Vitamin E pills a day will help with balancing your hormones/moods and help with hair loss, etc.  Hope this helps.  I have been taking the vitamins for a couple of days, so not sure if it's working yet....  EM
