Brief Answer: androanagen and minoxidil Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query and photographs. You have typical male pattern baldness. It happens due to over activity of testosterone on hair follicle. Take tablet androanagen daily for 3 months. It is anti androgen and prevent further hair loss. Also apply minoxidil oil twice daily . It increases blood supply to hair and increases growth. let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
