What is a good shampoo or product to stop hair fall and help hair regrow? i start to see my hair falling off.  i also have some dandruff.

There are: no shampoos that will stop hair loss or regrow hair except for Rogaine, (minoxidil) but at your age you need to see a good dermatologist for an evaluation of your scalp and your pcp for a general medical evaluation to determine the cause. The less trauma (heat, chemicals, etc) to your hair the better for now. Don't get your medical info from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more

My son 2yr old n his hair falling alot no dandruff or wring worm but he's itching not to much his blood work came out nothing wrong with his thyroid 
?

Reassuring: The fact his thyroid and blood work are normal is good. The itching is still suspicious for either infection or allergic reaction. Some ring worm infections can be trickier to see and it might be time for a dermatologist to look at the hairs to see if they can find the problem. Diet issues can also cause hair loss as can stress. Let your doctor know you are still worried. Here is some more info- http://www.hairlosstalk.com/hair-loss-children/ ...Read more
