I am using minoxidel since last 4 monthes. I am not regular with it however more than 3 times a week.

Never heard of finasteride. I dont think i have ever used it. Since i was 17. It never stopped. If it continues at the same pace, i am sure there wont be much left within some years.

Brief Answer:
You need regular and long term treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

I would like to tell you that in case of male pattern hair loss, regular and long term treatment is very essential . You can expect to see results only if you follow the treatment regimen properly.
You need to apply ten percent minoxidil lotion one ml twice a day . Along with it, take tablet biotin 10 mg daily .
You should continue the above treatment for atleast three months regularly before you will be able to see a noticable difference in hair fall.
Hair regrowth of the lost hair needs even longer treatment .
Also you should avoid application of hair oil .
You can wash hair twice a week with any shampoo.
So be patient, and be regular with the above treatment , only then you can expect any results.
