Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

You mentioned that you have dandruff and hair fall along with low hemoglobin levels.
This hair fall may be directly related to low hemoglobin as well as dandruff problem.
but there can be many other causes of hair fall.
I would like to know the following details :
1) for how long the hair fall is present?
2) is the hair fall diffuse or mainly in frontal scalp?
3) any history of long illness or disease?
4) how is your dietary habits?
5) any thyroid disorder?

Kindly reply to my questions so that I can help you to my best.
Stay healthy.

Hello dear,
Welcome again.

Repeated cold cough like in sinus patients is also a very common cause of hair fall.

For low hemoglobin, you may take iron supplements regularly.

Usually in such patients with hair fall, I advice growth peptides like Q sera hair serum to be applied over affected scalp twice daily.
Alongwith tablets containing calcium pantothenate , selenium , biotin like folihair is advised to be taken once daily.

For dandruff, use anti dandruff shampoo containing ketoconazole to be used on alternate day basis till it is gone followed by once or twice a month.
The treatment has to be continued for atleast 3 months for appreciable results.

I hope it helps. If you have any further query you may ask me. Else you may close the discussion and rate it.

Stay healthy.
