ANSWER #2 of 5

wow you have to be more specific than that...when your hair coomes out is there a follicle at the end, (little white speck) which means it's from the root or not, which means it's just breaking. Normally, your hair is in a cycle of growing, resting and shedding. At any given time, you could be losing as many as 200 hairs per day. This is not a problem when you consider that there could be 100,000 or more hairs actively growing.
You need to get tested by a professional, because this could be caused by many things. Make sure you get your TSH levels checked (thyroid stimulating hormones) because hypothyroidism is very common, and it does cause hair loss. Here are the symptoms of low thyroid:

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
Coarse, dry hair
Dry, rough pale skin
Hair loss
Cold intolerance (can't tolerate the cold like those around you)
Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
Memory loss
Abnormal menstrual cycles
Decreased libido

You won't necessarily display all of the symptoms. This disease is easily controlled, and is best caught early. Left unchecked, it can lead to a goiter. Of course, it could be something completely different, like...are you under a lot of stress? are you taking medication? it might also be hereditary, but at your age, not normal.
Hairloss is also a factor with some drug use, especially continued. But first and foremost let's focus on are you taking any medication? and how much stress are you undergong? are you an anxious person? do you dye it a lot?
