Thanks for query.

It is important to know about the cause of hair fall first.

At your age hair loss can be due to dandruff,iron and vitamin deficiency,Hormone disturbances such as thyroid.

You can continue the treatment prescribed above and if you do not have any responce in 2 to 3 months then you can ask your doctor to go for the blood check up.

Hope this will solve your problem.

Thanks for writing to us.
triclenz shampoo is a mild hair shampoo having no role in preventing hair fall.
Premature greying of hair can be genetic, due to stress, smoking, nutritional deficiency etc. Intake of calcium pantothenate or PABA orally and application of melitane gel may help. Hair fall can only be treated once the pattern and cause for the same has been ascertained. For the same consult a dermatologist nearby.
Hope that helped.
take care
