Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
There are a number of causes of hair fall like, iron deficiency, dandruff, stress etc. Do as follows & let me know:
1) For dandruff, use a good anti-dandruff shampoo (like Nizral) 3-4 times a week (keep it in your hair for 10-15 minutes before washing off).
2) Massage your scalp daily with plain coconut or olive oil.
3) Get your Hb tested-- if anaemic, please start iron tablets & take a nutritious diet.
4) Also start Tab. Biotin 5 mg once a day.
I hope this should help you. Good luck.
