Shampoos: Shampoos remove much more hair oil than regular soap, and it's important that you apply a hair conditioner after shampooing to restore normal hair texture. If a dermatologist doesn't find any medical problems causing hair loss, I recommend that you have a skilled beautician evaluate your hair status and instruct you on proper hair care techniques.

See a dermatologist: Cortisone solution will help you, often fluocinonide. Consider low thyroid, androgenetic alopecia, etc.
