Doctor :   After going through the description provided by you, I feel that the cause of your hair loss is due to dandruff and its very important to clear dandruff.
Doctor :   For this you can use KZ shampoo but make sure you use it for atleast 6 months.

User :   ok
Doctor :   Avoid taking head bath with hot water.

Doctor :   As this would irritate the scalp and produce more dandruff.
Doctor :   Yes, I understand. But you can have body bath with hot water and please avoid head bath with hot water.
