Hello Doctor,

I am suffering from Hair fall, Dandruff and thinning of hair. I could not stick to one shampoo. With doctor's advice, I was on Dandruff treatment and started using "Triatop" Shampoo. It was effective but as soon as stopped using it, dandruff was back.

Every time I brush my hair, I loose more than normal. I want my hair to be grown back as they were in past-healthy and long.

The thickness of 1 strand of my hair is very thin which is again a matter for worry to me.
I would like to ask

1. Can the intake of multi vit treat this hair fall problem??
2. What can I do for my dandruff?
3. Can my hair regrow? If yes, Please suggest a solution which I as student can try.
4. Can I be on Oxivim, Follihair and triatop shampoo at the same time????..

Pleas suggest me the right path.

Thanks for writing in.

Hair loss can be due to variety of causes like dandruff,deficiency of nutrients , anemia, thyroid disease etc.

Likewise treatment depends on cause of hair fall.

To answer your questions-

Multivitamins are helpful.(provided they contain biotin and zinc)

Apply Salisia KT shampoo on alternate day for dandruff.

Wet your hair keep shampoo on for 5 minutes then wash off.

Mesotherapy is a good option to stop hair fall and regrow new hair.

You can use three of them together its the right path.

In general measures you should avoid stress, maintain good diet ,adequate sleep,regular exercise.Keeping good general health will add to treatment.

Take one fruit every day.Take lemon juice and other citrous foods as they are XXXXXXX in vitamin C and anti oxidants.

Do not comb when hairs are wet.

Use widely spaced comb with rounded teeth(not sharp ends).

Avoid hot water for bathing(use lukewarm water)

Avoid hardening gels/ harsh colors/chemicals on scalp.

Avoid direct sunexposure/heat/wind exposure to your hair.

You can use dove or Loreal shampoo for hair wash.

Please upload your photos of your scalp areas(2-3) with UPLOAD YOUR REPORTS section on right side of the page.

Photos will be further useful to provide specific advise.

Hope this helps you .
If you have any further queries feel free to ask them.
