  1. Hi, first, dandruff needs to be controlled and scalp skin health needs to be improved. Hence, Dhurdhurapatradi taila would be good.
    Once after dandruff is under control, then Bhringamalakadi tailam should be good to use.
    Please also note that much of the hair fall treatment, in your case, is dependent upon effective thyroid hormone control. Hence, please consult a doctor in person.
