its androgenic alopecia. its very difficult to controll. you can delay it by medicatins like minoxidil.
mesotherapy may be helpful.
if you need permanent solution then hair transplantation is needed.

Hi! fahad,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

You probably are suffering from ANDROGENTIC ALOPECIA,common type of male pattern hair loss.This is a familial condition where in one gradually looses frontal hair .
I would like to share with you that if your family members also have the same patter (esp your father & from your mothers side) then ,there is very high chance that you would also get the same pattern.And there is no permanent cure for this except surgery.But with proper medication you can delay the process of baldness may be by few years.

You can first try minoxidil sol 5% or 10% topically directly applied to scalp.Along with this there are medicines like finestride 1 mg & biotin which are help ful .Before taking this you should be under a regular guidance of a dermatologist .These are very effective medicine but has to be taken for long time.
Apart from this there are lasers for hair growth (FDA APPROVED) which needs to be taken for initial 2 months .It has amazing results.
Then there is MESO-THERAPY which are tiny injections which are directly given on the scalp for growth.

In case you have already lost hair and are suffering from baldness then you can go for hair transplantation. You can get details in my website & (dermatology section) .We also have a hair institute running in apollo hospital,bhilai(cg). We do all above procedures and we also do lasers and meso injection along with hair transplantation.

Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play .

Hope this answers your query ,if you have any further questions ,kindly write back to us.I'll be available for your follow up questions.
