My name is XXXXXXX Age 27. Chennai, I have been facing high hair fall since four years and my hair become very thin and gray. I have used mintop for four months but applying mintop using the tube and applying into the scalp by drop and drops twice a day. This procedure unable to follow regularly due to rushing to office every day morning and evening, so requesting you please give some alternatives to make hair stronger as well regrowth. Also the result was not that much improved for me.

I read your query & your attached report. I understand your anxiety given your father too has male pattern alopecia (from what you describe). Are you married? If so, do you have children & are you anticipating increasing the size of your family?
Is it possible to upload a present photograph of your hair region both front & back views & one from the top in good light & clear please!?
Understand your difficulties in using Mintop. Would you be better off or consider taking a tablet daily for some 6 months or so?
Or would you prefer something more permanent like say for instance a hair transplant?
Once i get the photos & an idea of what exactly you will be willing to go in for, then will be in a position to answer you better.
Await your response
