It is very common to see hair loss after Typhoid. Therefore typhoid treatment need to be followed by proper nutritional diet, which I think did not happen in your case. Take proper balanced nutritional diet. Few food items need to be avoided in dandruff problem: Avoid Citrus fruits (e.g. orange), bananas, meats, sugar, white flour, string tea or coffee, pickles.
No hair tonic (internal or external) will work until your dandruff problem get solved.
Home remedies for dandruff: Fenugreek seeds: 2 tablespoon seeds should be soaked overnight in water and ground into fine paste in the morning. This paste should be applied all over the scalp and left for half an hour. The hair should be the washed thoroughly with soap-nut (ritha) solution or shikakai.
Green Gram Powder: The hair should be washed twice a week with 2 tablespoons of this powder mixed with half cup of curd.
