Im a 26 year old male and I am losing hair. I was wondering is there anything natural or something I can do to change my lifestyle to prolong hair loss that is proven? No rogaine or anything like that.
Thanks

Brief Answer:
photograph required

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I would like to see a photograph of your scalp.
There are many conditions with hair loss and each appears in a different pattern.
A photograph would help me in ascertaining the cause and hence I can prescribe you a good therapy.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
hair transplant is best for you

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the photograph.
Yes you are true. It is genetic.
You are suffering from androgenic alopecia.
It happens due to over activity of testosterone hormone.
You must have noticed that you are loosing hair in a fixed pattern,
That is from the center and front of head, while the posterior hair are as such.
There are no medications which can give you a permanent relief.
The best treatment for you is hair transplant.
It can give you a permanent solution for your problem.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Any way to naturally slow it down?
Do hair transplants always work? Out of a scale of 1 to 100, how natural does it look? How long does it take? Is it done in phases over the years?
