How to cure from hair loss due to dandruff ?

Hi! My age is 20,female. When I was 14, I had considerable hair loss due to dandruff I guess. Since then I have less hair on the upper part of my head . My hairs don t fall now but I have noticed that there are small hairs on the upper head but they are not growing. I mean, I have seen these small hairs since 2-3 years. I have some white hairs too. Please suggest me something to get my hairs back. I have 12% hb

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If there is no dandruff and your hairs don't fall then to get thick hairs you can apply or massage with castor oil twice a week;take diet rich in proteins;also you can take some multivitamins along with healthy diet.It will take some time but surely the volume will increase.
Thanks

My daughter has been loosing her hair, and it has gotten quite bad recently. She has bald spots on the top of her head and itching and what she calls dandruff. When she was approx 12 yrs old this started with three small spots on top of her head. The derm. gave her an array of creams any ointments, which did nothing. They & said she was positive (I have Lupus SLE). Her father did not believe this and she never returned. The spots stayed approx the size of your finger print with minimal amt of hair for years. Now she is 25 and she is thinning more and mor every day & spots are getting worse. Gone to 3 Derm. and no one can find a cause. Tested negative for Lupus in blood test

I began taking Cerazette contraceptive pill in march 2010 (to control my menstrual cycle that had gradually shortened to 21 days). After 3 to 4 months I noticed massive hair loss. I saw my GP who told me the two were unrelated and that I was probably "just stressed". The hair loss continued excessively and so I took the decision to stop taking the pill in September 2010. The hair loss continued and I returned to the GP who referred me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist said I "wasn't losing hair" and that my bloods were all fine. Fast forward to today and I'm still losing hair. My scalp is clearly visible and I look like an elderly woman who is balding. I'm 35. I am and have been using minoxidil 12% on my scalp for the past 5 months (from a private hair health clinic who say i have pattern baldness) and have seen no change. I'm desperate to know if this hair loss will ever stop and reverse? I have been shedding hair for 15 months now. In another 12 there will certainly be none left if it continues at this rate.
