@Stupida, Obvious question here but are you taking antivirals?  I've read they could be the culprit and I can definitely say that I started taking Acyclovir daily about three months ago and within a few weeks I noticed it was thinning my hair out.  If not the antivirals then not sure if it is the actual herpes.  TBH I haven't read anyone reporting hair loss b/c of HSV alone but it seems anything is possible with this darn virus.  We'll see if anyone else chimes in here..

I know hair loss also can be from depression, anxiety, worries or lack of quality sleeping. 

This too. Herpes is a very stressful, even traumatic, diagnosis for many people, and this could be connected. What I read is that Acyclovir can cause apolopecia, which is hair loss everywhere, so if you're just seeing some thinning on your head, it might be stress.
