Hello, welcome to HCM. Dandruff can be responsible for hairfall in majority of cases. You should start using agood anti dandruff shampoo and condition your hair well. You should improve your diet and take a balanced diet in rich in proteins. In case you still find your hair are falling you should visit a trichologist for evaluation for further treatment. Minoxidil is a good drug to reduce hairfall but its effect lasts only till the time it is applied. Wish you good health.
