Homeopathic medicines work wonders in all types of hair fall and especially in cases of premature loss of hair and Alopecia Areata.so consult experienced Homoeopath.
scalp and neck massage will help redue stress and hair fall
balanced diet.
pranayama atleast thrice a week is beneficial for general health and will help reduce hair fall
use mild shampoo,and avoid washing hairs with hot water.
good luck

Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Dandruff per say has no relations to hair loss,but you can use any good medicated shampoo like those containing ketoconazole with ZPTO.
You have not mentioned about your gender,kindly do so.Your treatment depends upon whether you are male or female.
In females the most common cause of hair loss is –iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,or use of chemical on scalp ,procedures like perming or straightening etc. Other rare causes are zn & copper def.

In males,andogenetic alopecia is most common apart from the above rare causes. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat.
In females there are various patterns of hair loss,which can be judged clinically by a dermatologist.In females one should get a hormonal level checked along with an ultra sound if necessary to rule out PCOD.This usually seen in obese patient with irregular periods.
Other simple test which we do (both male and females) are hair pull test and trichogram to diagnose which type of hair loss is there. After proper diagnosis you can start with topical preparations like Minoxidil 2%-5% applied twice daily on scalp along with tab biotin once daily.In males we also add tablet finestride orally daily. There are low level lasers also to control hair loss .I've been using the same for last two years with good result.They are FDA approved also.
In females if there is hormonal disturbances then ,they would require hormonal tablets to control their hair loss.
Hypo & Hyper thyroidism both can cause hair loss ,so kindly get it checked.Usually thinning of hair is seen in such cases.
Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, sprouts ,pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play . We also do hair transplantation for those needed.

So ,consult a dermatologist who suggest you a treatment accordingly.
Take care,
Dr.Chawda
