Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
you need to consult dermatologist or plastic surgeon
treatment depend upon the cause and its severity
in your age group heredity ,hormones and stress is main factor .
if extensive hair loss is there than surgical treatment is advisable like hair transplant ,weaving ,bonding etc
if not too much hair loss is there and still it is active ,medical treatment is effective
you need to be patience as it may take several month to get result
minoxidil and aminexil give good result
while tab finasteride also effective
you need to avoid smoking ,stress ,alcohol
eat healthy diet rich in protein

Hello, welcome to HCM. In case you have already lost majority of your hair the only cure available is hair transplant. But in case you still have good amount of hairs left on scalp you can use a drug minoxidil which reduces hairfall. For further evaluation visit a trichologist. Wish you good health.
