    Traumatic experiences have been attributed to hair loss

    Yep, absolutely can.   Any kind of a bodily stressor can cause your body to refocus engergy (and calories and nutrients) towards the more vital functions, like healing and recovery and away from hair and nail growth.  

    Also big changes in diet, like going vegan and changing protein intake a whole bunch.   Hair is 17% cystine, and then other amino acids, you need to eat 4 full cups of beans to get the amount of protein in 3oz of chicken!
