It is normal for both men and woman to shed between 50 to 100 hairs per day. On average your hair grows about 1cm (half an inch) each month. Hair grows from hair follicles, located under your skin. A single scalp hair grows continuously for 2-6 years (growth phase) and stops growing for 2-4 months (rest phase). After this hair falls out & new healthy hair begins to grow in its place and the cycle is repeated. So at any given the hair on the scalp are always in different stages. Medical attention is required when you experience abnormal amount of hair fall.
It depends on your scalp, hair type & environment. If you have normal, sensitive or dry scalp then two times is sufficient; On the other hand if you have oily/greasy scalp and prone to dandruff you need to wash more often. A golden tip for very dry hair is to pre-condition before you step into the shower. This means adding conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your dry hair before you shampoo. After the shampoo you add the conditioner again to deeply treat your try hair.
This is an important part of hair care regimen. Shampoo is designed to cleanse the scalp by removing impurities and excess oils whilst maintaining the normal pH of around 4.5-5.5. Ideally a dermatologist should assess the condition of your scalp to ascertain which shampoo will offer the required benefits.
When hair begins to look frizzy or dull, it means the cuticle layer of the hair is damaged or no longer lying flat. On a molecular level, the bonds that hold the cuticle cells together weaken over time. The individual cuticles are raised as damage occurs; the hair strands tangle and break. The change in the way our hair looks and feels is a reminder that a good hair conditioner is a necessity and should be used every time we wash our hair. Remember that a conditioner should only be applied to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair not to the roots or scalp.
To get rid of split ends you need to use a nourishing conditioner so that the hair follicles are sealed. Use a wide wooden tooth comb to get rid of the tangles. Go gentle on your hair and do not use a lot of hair styling tools, too much heat can damage your hair and result in split ends. You can also use a leave-in conditioner and go for regular trims to remove the split ends.
This depends on what condition you are suffering from. Some chronic dermatological concerns such as Vitiligo, Psoriasis, Urticaria, etc can only be kept under control with proper medication and lifestyle changes. Response to few treatments not only depends on the medications but also on client compliance.

Usually it hard to say what suits you, unless you try it. However, you can make an educated guess by examining the product’s label and ingredient list. To increase the chance that products won’t irritate your skin, seek out those that are fragrance-free, contain little or no alcohol, and are labeled “suitable for sensitive skin”.
Wrinkles are a natural result of aging, but you can delay their onset or minimize their appearance. To do so, limit sun exposure, wear sunscreen every day, and use skin products that contain antioxidants and retinoids, which can reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The skin is classified in just a few categories, including normal, oily, dry, and sensitive. If you have combination skin, it means your skin is one type in one area and another type in another area (oily around your T-zone but normal everywhere else, for instance). Your skin type can change over time and can also be affected by factors such as hormones, medications, and diet. To get a good idea of what your skin type might be, wash it gently and leave it product-free for several hours before examining it closely to observe different areas.
