Hi. Greetings. In women, Anaemia, hormonal issues, environmental factors , pollution, stress, junk food and poor diet could cause you to lose hair. After adequate evaluation by a qualified dermatologist, You'll probably need treatment with hair care lotions or serums - something that has vasodilator properties and improves thickness of hair and reduces hair loss. Have a good balanced nutritious diet.For sore scalp and dandruff you'll need an antifungal shampoo with probably a low dose corticosteroid shampoo. See a dermatologist near you to get evaluated if you have any other scalp problem. Hope this helps. Warm regards.

Young people suffering from hairfall is quite common. Firstly try and avoid bad habits such as stress, smoking, and alcohol (if it's possible ). Switch over to ketoconazole shampoo three times a week. Also you need to start oral biotin supplements and minoxidil topical for which you need to consult a dermatologist. Sooner you start more hair you can save !
