I understand your problem and will give you best possible advise.

Hairs are indicator of general health.
Most probable cause for your hair loss is diffuse hair loss or Androgenetic Alopecia or male pattern baldness.

Treatment of of baldness can be oral medications ,topical lotions and few procedures.It depends on type of alopecia.

Also I would like to know
-You are having hair loss from frontal area(male pattern )or diffuse type of hair loss?

-Frontal hair line is receeding or intact?

-Any history of recent fever /illness?

-Any recent stressful event?Starvation?

Please answer above questions to help you better.

In oral medication you can take multivitamin supplements especially those containing Biotin ,amino acids (like cysteine , methionine ) ,minerals (like Iron copper ).Also SAW PALMETTO is a natural product which helps in male pattern baldness. It is available in tablet forms.
Finasteride tablets have a proven role in male pattern baldness.

In topical medication Minoxidil and saw palmetto are effective.

You can use these medications after consulting your dermatologist.A good dermatologist will be able to provide you all the above treatment options.
Dose,frequency of medication and procedures can be decided after proper physical examination only.Once started treatment has to be taken for longer duration like 2 years.

In general measures you should avoid stress, maintain good diet ,adequate sleep,regular exercise.Keeping good general health will add to treatment.

Take one fruit every day.Take lemon juice and other citrous foods as they are XXXXXXX in vitamin C and anti oxidants.

Hope this helps you .
If you have any further queries feel free to ask them.
