Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us. You have not elaborated your hair problem. There could be many causes of hair fall like hereditary factors, hormonal factors, nutritional deficiency, illness, surgery, local scalp causes etc. I would Like to know since how long are you having hair fall. If its involving your front, Side, centre of scalp or if hair fall is diffuse. If you are having dandruff. If there is any history of illness, stress,surgery, nutritional deficiency Also upload an image of your scalp depicting hair fall. Hoping to hear from you soon. Take care

Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us. Though wearing a helmet for long hours, fever, dengue can lead to hair fall but I believe its mainly due to genetic and hormonal factors( male pattern baldness). I have seen the images attached and hair fall is mainly from centre of scalp. To treat the same Take tablet androanagen or follihair new or tablet revilus daily Apply minoxdil amenixil combination ( amexdil 5 % or hair4 u 5% or adhair 5%) 1ml twice daily. Improve your diet. Take well balanced protein rich diet. Continue the same atleast for three months to increase hair density and thickness. Hope this helped. Take care

Brief Answer: it could be male pattern baldness Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing back. In your case, the primary cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. Please follow the treatment suggested in my previous post. As I have already mentioned, atleast three months would be required to see desirable response in terms of growth and individual strand thickness. Take care
