I suggest posting pictures, seeing an expert, getting a biopsy and blood tests to see if there is any internal cause and starting hair loss treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.

There are many causes for hair loss the most common being genetic male pattern hair loss. Hyperthyroidism may instigate the progression of genetic hair loss. Because of its progressive nature, If you indeed have genetic hair loss, you need to be examined by a hair loss specialist for treatment options.
