hello im dr satya welcome to health care magic,
good nutrition and unstressed mind with a good family history of luxurious hair is what a lot of people wish for, of these only food is in our hands hence you eat good food.
mintop lotion is secondary to to medication and needs regular use.
also you should be free from any other hair loosing conditions to help you get a good hair.
your condition needs evaluation.
thank you
dr satya.

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sharad Mishra's  Response

Hair fall and thinning in females is often due to an underlying systemic cause. In your case it could be due to poor nutrition, crash diet, iron deficiency etc. or due to some other hormonal cause. You should first visit a qualified specialist to ascertain the cause and then start therapy. If the underlying cause is not treated the hair fall will recur.

Minoxidil 2% is approved for use in women suffering hair fall. However, 5% strength is also used by many doctors (including myself) for women if the patient is ready to accept the (rare but possible) side effect of facial hair growth. All the improvement generated by Minoxidil is temporary so, do not stop using it with out medical advice. It can be used long term under supervision.

Hope you found this answer useful. Feel free to write for further info.
