Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
There needs to be a proper diagnosis to be established.
It could even be even a dryness of scalp.
Kindly consult a dermatologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
If its a dandruff problem then he will suggest you what to do further.
Best regards.

Hi there....I can understand your concern. Thin hair, hair fall could be due to many reasons like hereditary, stress, thyroid disorders, anemia, pcod, recent fever, vitamin deficiency, seborrhic capitis. You will require detailed clinical examination and further investigations. So kindly consult nearby dermatologist for further evaluation. Conservatively at home, don't use hot water while having head bath. Use only lukewarm water. While drying your hair, don't scrub too much or use hair dryer. Just pad with towel.

Hi there...Several ingredients were found to be safe and effective for self-treatment of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione and coal tar are effective in treating both conditions while sulfur and ketoconzole are effective in treating dandruff only and hydrocortisone is effective for seborrheic dermatitis..consult nearest dermatologist they will do the needful
