Brief Answer:
Minoxidil and dutamax

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Minoxidil 5 % along with dutamax should be sufficient for you.
Try this for at least one year.
If you get good response you can stop dutamax and continue with minoxidil.
Take protein rich diet and sprouted grains.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
