Your reduced hair density, hair fall and lustureless hair could be due to severe dandruff problem that you are facing. So to treat all the above mentioned problems, treating dandruff is mandatory. Use a good antifungal (ketoconazole) and salicylic acid/tar based shampoo every alternate days to clean your scalp. Also apply an antifungal and steroid based lotion over scalp in night. Continue the same for 2 to 3 weeks to notice desirable response. Once the dandruff will subside, hair fall will reduce considerably. Later on hair supplements and minoxidil solution can be added to aid further hair growth. Do not indulge in salon treatment or hair spas for a while. Take care.
