You may be suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts refeeding  from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. This may also be accompanied by severe dandruff. The treatment for this condition is a lotion and tablets. There is no other alternative. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised  and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects on the hair roots. Along with this, you can also consider platelet rich plasma therapy for faster results. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting..

Hi Seborrhoeic dermatitis is caused by yeast which is normally present on scalp but whenever the equilibrium between body and yeast is disturbed it results in dandruff. It's treated with medicines and shampooes. Maintenance therapy is also required to prevent relapses.
Next Steps
consult a dermatologist with photographs for treatment.
