Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

Any chemical treatment however safer can result in textural changes in the hair, can cause a lot of hair fall and dandruff.

Even if you do any preventive treatment the changes may take place.

you could apply minoxidil while having the treatment, but it may not really stop the changes.

You could do the keratin treatment and apply minoxidil only later on if required in case of any baldness.

Please use a conditioner after every hair wash.

Hope my recommendations are helpful.

Take care.

Please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

Thanks for your reply.

I mean the conditioner following shampoo.

Coconut oil is good for conditioning the hair.

Vitamin b i.e biotin is good for hair growth.

You can take biotin supplements daily.

You can also take iron, calcium and amino acids supplements. Thus will also be helpful in hair growth.

Take care.
