Hello, for oily and dandruff prone scalp using a shampoo containing ketoconazole and salicylic acid will help. Dry hair can be taken care of by using a good quality hair conditioner. Hair and scalp health are reflection of your diet and life style so maje sure you eat a nutritious and balanced diet. Please refrain from blow drying or using other types of hair styling tools which use heat as this will further dry out your hair and aggravate breakage. See a Dermatologist for a more thorough consultation. Regards, Dr.Shruti Jadhav Devershi, Sólskin Professional Dermacare, Kharadi, Pune
Hair fall has to be addressed by understanding the cause. Hair fall from roots and shaft have different treatment options. Headache while combing may indicate scalp folliculitis.
Kindly consult a Dermatologist
