I shampoo my hairs regularly.  But still my hairs still remains dirty ... what should I do ?

Re-evaluate the prob: The information you provide is that 1) you regularly wash your hair with shampoo and 2) You are troubled by a characteristic of your hair that you describe as "dirty" . I think we can assume that unless your hair is covered with tar, that after a thorough shampoo your hair is not full of dirt. Accept this assumption, and after shampooing take another close look, and describe what you see and feel ...Read more

I have always had thick hair even though I have noticed hair loss when washing it.  Lately my pony tail is noticably thinner. I am 54. I have glaucoma?

Not related: Hair loss and glaucoma are not related conditions, and having one doesn't affect the other. Hair loss does occur as we age, but excessive may be caused by underlying systemic problems like hypothyroidism, lupus, poly cystic ovarian disease, hormonal changes, heredity, medications to name a few. If you are concerned, ask your md whether you need an evaluation. ...Read more

I already asked before about hair dandruff but I haven' t got reply  yet. My problam is that I have lots of dandruff ans I just done hair transplantation four monthes ago and my hairs are not strong yet. So what should I do to get rid off dandruff . Tnx?

Start with H&S: I would start with head and shoulders otc shampoo or selsun blue. These are mild shampoos and should not give your young transplant hairs any problems. If you are still having problems, see your hair transplant doc for suggestions. There may be useful prescription meds that would be helpful and not harm your grafts. ...Read more

U can try Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo 2-3 x/week as directed, and either Selsun Blue or Head & Shoulders intensive treatment the other days.

Seek care: You should seek medical care. Sometimes increased hair growth can be from other sources other than pcos. Rarely rumors can be the culprit. If indeed it is pcos weight loss may help.

Mineral deficiencies: This may be related to mineral deficiencies, particularly magnesium, zinc and copper. This might also be due to deficiency of the amino acid methionine, but if you take it also take L-5-MTHF (a form of folate), B6, B12 (as methylcobalamin) & TMG.
