Hello, the causes of hairfall in your case is both hypothyroidism and dandruff. Now, u need thyroid hormone supplements, if not already started and anti-dandruff treatment like ketoconazole 2% shampoo thrice weekly to control the same..Also, rather than shampoos , conditioners are more important, use a good conditioner like loreal total repair five on your hair for 10 min. after every shampooing, there are shampoos for oily hair, u can go for any.
Start with these, over a period of three months, therapies like PRP can be added as per indication.
Happy Recovery!
