User:Hi Doctor,

My name is XXXXXXX 23 years old software developer from XXXXXXX MH, XXXXXXX I experienced major hairfall in last 5-6 months. May be it was because of bad water from bore-well or may be I was not getting enough vitamins in my body. The hairfall is almost zero now (can see 3-4 hairs falling a day which I believe is a normal thing).

As the hairfall was heavy in last few months the density is not as good as it was before. It is not very thin but thin compared to previous density.. Is there any medicine, pills or hair oil that I can apply to increase density and thickness of hairs?

I don't have white hairs yet and I am health loving person who work out every day... Please suggest me a good way to get the density back. I don't think we have anyone with baldness in our family from father's end.. My grandfather (Mother's side) had baldness but no one else..

Help me :-)
