I'm facing hair fall in large number. I'm treating dandruff. But still hair fall. Can i take minoxidil ? Each time i wash 20 - 30 hair fall.

In brief: Minoxidil

Topical Minoxidil has been approved for male type baldness, not for hair loss! so, if you're just losing hair, but there are no bald spots, it's less likely to be effective.
I'd focus on ruling out conditions that may contribute or cause - thyroid dysfunction, anemia, liver problems, parasites, toxic/harmful exposures.
