Welcome to healthcare magic. Shampoo to hair and scalp is equivalent to soap for body. Shampoo's job is to clean the dirt and oil from the scalp and hair. Shampoo has no role in controlling hair loss. It is not okay if you do not use shampoo for 3 months. Grime and oil won't be washed off by water alone.
You need to consult a dermatologist to diagnose the condition causing hair fall.
Hope this helped,
Take care.
