Hello,
Thanks for the query. You are suffering from a condition called as telogen effluvium.
It is a condition associated with hair fall after any type of illness. Dont worry you will recover your natural hair. It may take a time of around a year.
In order to accelerate the growth you can use minoxidil lotion and take tab follihair daily. You will get relief with this. Let me know if you have any other doubt. Thank you.

Hello XXXXX,
By illness I mean any type of stress. Whether it is stress of work or illness or intake of medication, all can cause hair fall. But this hair fall is reversible. The rate of growth of hair is slow and hence it takes time to recover. Dont worry you will be totally fine. For dandruff use noskurff lotion. Thank you

Keep any fruit like papaya, watermelon or cucumber with you.
You can take these even during your shift.
Take sprouted grains in morning.

In lunch or dinner you can take soya bean in vegetable.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
