Hi sir, I have problem with hair. Am lossing hair due to hair fall , please suggest me how to control my hair and which shampoo i need to use.
Hair loss: Hair growth and loss follows a cycle that is often disrupted with stress including physical or emotional. Hormonal changes can often result in dramatic hair loss as well. Its best to see a general physician or a dermatologist who will examine you and perhaps order labs. For the meantime, there is no shampoo better than any other.

Maybe not dandruff: Dandruff is a fungal infection of the skin and should respond to otc shampoo like selsun blue.

If you still notice symptoms it may be eczema, which will not clear with anti-dandruff shampoo. Rather, you will need to try t-gel, or similar. A dermatologist can help. ...Read more
