Hi.
As per your case history you are having male pattern hair loss.
My treatment advice is -
1. It is a genetic condition that can be controlled but not reversed.
2. As you are just 22 years, treatment can be effective.
3. Avoid hair oil for at least 2 weeks as you are having dandruff.
4. Start minoxidil 2% solution application twice daily for hair loss and clotrimazole lotion once daily for dandruff.
5. Other treatment options are oral finasteride, oral multivitamins, oral antifungals taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Take above treatment for 3 months to get appreciable results.

Thanks.
