hi..thanks for your query.
Before starting the treatment of hair loss, it is very important assess yourself completely and have an understanding of the actual cause of hair loss.There may be several reasons:
factors:The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness
or female-pattern baldness. In genetically susceptible people, certain sex hormones trigger a particular pattern of permanent hair loss. Most common in men, this type of hair thinning can begin as early as puberty.
2)Medical conditions:A variety of medical conditions can cause hair loss, including thyroid problems,Alopecia areata
You should get a complete bloodwork done before you start the next step of treatment.However, its also important to understand that , any treatment of hair loss, in any form of therapy ,requires considerable time and patience to get optimum results.
In case then diagnosis of Androgenetic alopecia was made,you might need Finasteride
to control the loss in addition to minoxidil
Hope this helps.Take care!
