Hi. You may be suffering from telogen effluvium triggered by stresses related to change of place and lifestyle or may even have early onset androgenetic alopecia. Does your father or brother or maternal uncles have balding? This could genetically predispose you to balding. Further environmental factors , pollution, stress, junk food and poor diet could cause you to lose hair further. 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 dandruff you'll need an antifungal shampoo. Don't use oils on scalp. See a dermatologist near you. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Warm regards.
