Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.

The condition you are suffering is androgenetic alopecia and seborrheic dermatitis.

You need to take combination therapy to stop the hair loss.
Start takin Tab.Keraglo XXXXXXX two times a day after meals.
Also you can continue using Minoxidil the Minokem N lotion is a good preparation you can use it 1ml twice daily.
For Seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff you can take Tab .Ketoconazole 400mg one per day.
Apply Zydip C lotion at night time for 15 days.

Regarding shampoo use 8X shampoo 3 times a week.
Hair oils do not play major role in hair growth or hair loss you can use any.Avoid any herbal /scented oils .As far as possible use plain coconut oil.

With this treatment you will certainly stop hair fall and possible regrowth of hair over bald area.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up questions.
