Yes dandruff always leads to hairloss and even greying. Using anti dandruff for long time does cause dryness and hence leads to hairloss. Start proper oiling and anti hair fall shampoo to get rid of it. Maybe need to take few supplements as well if hairloss will not be controlled.

Last few months i'm suffering dandruff issue. Since last week i'm using salytar shampoo (salicylic acid+coaltar). Last day I found that few of my hair changed to white colour. Is this normal? Can I reverse it to black? Should I take any medication?

Hello Lybrate-user! usually, dandruff treating drugs does not alter hair color. Stress is one of the reasons for grey hairs, but other factors like vitamin b12 deficiency, low ferritin levels ,micronutrient deficiency, hereditary etc also play a role. Follihair is good tablet containing all micronutrients, iron, calcium ,folic acid, biotin etc which helps you to prevent from further greying of hairs but cannot reverse greying of hairs. Please go for necessary investigations and find out the cause and get corrected accordingly.

Hi all, I am a 27 years old female. I am having dandruff issues since a long time now. The dandruff is flaky kind. The situation gets under control if I keep using head and shoulders shampoo or ketoconazole lotion with a general shampoo. But as soon as I stop using either an anti dandruff shampoo or the ketoconazole lotion, and use just a general shampoo, my dandruff comes back again. Will I have to use either for lifetime? Is there a permanent solution that I can use for a few weeks/months and dandruff hoes away permanently?

Hi. Seborrhea (dandruff) is caused by fungal infection and also related to increasing sebum production. With increasing age the sebum production decreases and also the seborrhea. So continue using ketoconazole/ antifungal shampo for some time. Revise the diagnosis if there is localised dandruff along with a plaque. Visit dermatolgist. Thanks.

You may be suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts refeeding from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. This may also be accompanied by severe dandruff. The fda approved treatment for this condition is a lotion and tablets. There is no other alternative. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects on the hair roots. Along with this, you can also consider platelet rich plasma therapy for faster results. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting.

Dandruff can be treated with lotion and shampoo (not the commercial ones which you use). Some people have more oiliness on the scalp which then causes visible flakes that people called dandruff. There are also some conditions which present with flaking of the scalp and have to be treated properly. Do not apply oil on the scalp as it will worsen the condition. Please contact me by online consultation for proper examination and treatment advice.

Hairfall is not due to one single cause. There are many conditions which can cause extreme hair loss and thinning of hair on the scalp. So first and foremost we have to find the cause of hair fall with the help of detailed history and examination. Some of the common causes maybe nutritional deficiency, hormonal causes like androgenic alopecia also called pattern baldness, hypothyroidism, telogeun effluvium etc. Unless we find and c, read the cause there is no point in giving non specific treatment. Also one should refrain from home remedies as it does not give any relief from hairfall. Oil and shampoos do not have any effect on hair growth as they are not absorbed in the skin. Please contact me using online consultation for proper examination diagnosis and treatment.
