Hi vignesh , dont worry you are suffering from androgenic alopacia (male baldness ) ie hereditary .You need to take the following treatment : tab biotin 10 mg(BTN ULTRA) 1 OD for altleast 3 months , tab finestride 1 mg OD for atleast 3 months and minoxidil 5% topical solution with aminexil 1.5% locally 1ml in your roots twice daily , & as an ans to your question washing your hair with mineral water will have no effect on your hair fall . Imp instructions : you have to wash your hands after application of minoxidil and you will on start getting the results after 1-2 moths so plz don't panic that the medicines are not working .
