Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
ur hair fall is due to seborrheic ds.
we need to control it
both medicine u use r best.
once it controlled ,u need to maintain it.
seborrheic is not disease ,its condition of alter skin function
so there is no medicine that will cure of condition for life time.
so change ur attitude
