What can be done to regrow my hair lost due to usage of Tribulus ?

a GNC rep told me to take tribulus to increase hair growth in a week i lost almost an inch off my hairline after taking tribulus I didnt have hairloss like this before Did the GNC rep lie for a sale i had very little hair thinning and am 32. I though i would protect my hair, and took the advice of a GNC rep to take Tribulus, as it would increase my testosterone like I was a teenager, and it is known to increase hair growth. After only one week of taking this I have lost almost an inch off my hairline! Did the rep lie to me for a sale? is there any hope for regrowth or redemption with gnc? Will

Hi...dear user.,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Tribulus -GNC........ is a type of plant/weed and also the source of a.....,
dietary supplement claimed to improve male sexual performance and help build muscle.,
It has the ability to raise testosterone levels NATURALLY...,
Reported to be the “secret weapon” employed by Bulgarian strength athlete..,
it is supposed to increase muscle growth, improve libido..,
Different from anabolic steroids...,
Tribulus works by stimulating body’s own production of testosterone...,
So there is no relation between Hair growth and Tribulus...ok...,
Thus follow the following treatment....,
1) Apply Minoxidil 5% and Aminexil 5% every day night times..,
2) Tab..Boitin 10 mg daily for 30 days..,
3) Tab Betamethasone 0.5mg 2 days per week for 2 months (Pulse therapy....)
will give good result...ok.good luck.,
