Hello. Dandruff is becoming a major issue. Using strong chemical shampoo leads to more damaging of the scalp. You should use mild shampoo. Wash the hair with prior proper oiling. Try to avoid spicy food in diet. Eat more protein rich food. Maintain hygiene by washing hair twice week. Do not use anyone comb. Drink plenty of water. Homoeopathic medicine always helps in dandruff n hair fall. It required your detailed case. But it will definitely help.
