Hi. You may be suffering from 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. Yes your hair density can be restored if you take timely treatment and care of your hair. For dandruff you'll need an antifungal shampoo. See a dermatologist near you. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard -if u have further queries or wish to seek an appointment, you could contact me on follow up messaging.Warm regards.

My sincere suggestion is that you visit a dermatologist. Because your friend seems to be having (most likely) male pattern baldness... there are treatments(lotions) that can halt the progress of baldness. But a good examination by a dermatologist will help confirm the diagnosis. Ask him not to get depressed. Get help and he will benefit.
