Answer
1) if you have oily hair, you need to use a detergent shampoo to remove the oil. Some shampoos treat both both dandruff and oily hair like Aveno Shampoo.
2) dandruff does not cause hair loss. Hair loss is caused by : thyroid disease, some oral medications, anemia, recent stressful events like surgery, infections, genetics, auto-immune diseases, scaring, hormones and male pattern hair loss.
