hello kannan,
welcome to HCM
the most common cause of hairloss is androgenic alopecia.
if your father has same problem then you have a very high chance of getting it
but there is no permanent cure for it.
drugs like minoxidil onle delay the procedure. not permanent cure.
hair transplantation is permanent cure for it.
if its not androgenic and due to other factors then proper diet ans life style can prevent hair loss.
take care
