Most hair stylists/shampooers do very vigorous scalp massages when washing hair in a salon, so I wouldn't think that massaging would cause hair loss or they wouldn't do it. Now if you are scratching the scalp with fingernails or really pulling at the hair, then yes, that would cause some hair loss.
Maybe it's more an issue of an ingredient the hair doesn't like or a health issue?
