I couldn't find any information that cephalexin can cause hair loss.

I have been on a low dose of cephalexin (Keflex), 250 mg a day, for the past 5 weeks. My doctor wants me to continue taking it for 3 more months. I have been losing large amounts of hair every day, which started a week after I started taking the cephalexin. My doctor says it is not from the medicine, but from being sick with urosepsis 2 months ago . I really think it is from the Keflex.
