Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely due to androgenetic alopecia also called male pattern hair loss. For this using minoxidil solution on scalp is good. You can use 5% minoxidil twice daily for this. It should be used for at least 4 months to get effect and should be continued also. Small hair is thinning of hair which is most likely due to same problem. Using capixyl gel is also helpful for hair growth in such condition.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
