    It's probably nothing to worry about but you should see a doctor soon. Hair loss and hair thinning is a symptom of some cancers. Although this is unlikely its best to be certain.

    Other more likely reasons for hair loss could be a change in water, using washing up liquid instead of proper shampoo, ageing, poor hygiene, fleas.

    Make sure you're eating a nutritious diet with lots of water first of all. Eat lots of fish as well and avocado. Use argan oil and coconut oil on your hair as well

    Much the most likely reason, surely, is early onset male pattern baldness; this as opposed to cancer, fairly liquid or fleas.

    I quite like the "could be cancer" advice as a strategy, though. What a relief when the doctor reports that he's just going bald.
