Hair Scalp
After washing my hair very well with shampoo (sometimes twice), my head gets super oily and full of dandruff within 24 hours. Its also itchy and I am losing hair. As a result I am washing my hair every second day. Currently I am using Himalaya anti dandruff shampoo. I tried other shampoo before it didn't help.

Hi You seem to be having seborrhoeic dermatitis which is a chronic recurring skin condition. You may be using too much shampoo which may make the scalp excessively dry and the scalp may compensate by secreting too much oil. Try using a mild shampoo. Also eat healthy and avoid junk food. Smoking also increases the oil secretion and hair loss. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products and treatments if the above suggestions don't help
