Hair started thinning because of rapid hair loss. What is the prevention ?

I am a 23 years old male. I had pretty good hair till the age of 18. But, thereafter hair started thinning because of rapid hair loss . Right now, my hair near the forehead are almost gone and remaining too seem in a hurry to go. I tried a few medicines like Dr. Reddy s Mintop, but didn t notice any difference. Many barbers have suggested me to get my head shaved completely 7-8 times in order to get thicker hair. Please tell me whether it ll work. Both my parents have very thin hair, so its understandable that mine will be no better. But, this was not expected at a young age of early 20s. Please help! :-(

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

There are many options if you are loosing hair like finestride tablet,minoxidil,emenexil solution ,tab biotin etc.
But if you have already lost hair and baldness has started showing then the only remedy is hair transplantation .The details of this you can see at my website

Shaving your hair wont help you at all ,so need to go for that.
Since your parents have thin hair ,so the condition becomes genetic .Also the genes of baldness comes from maternal grand father .Such kind of hair loss is called ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA.

Further if you have any questions you can write to me in this forum.

Hi Abhinav,Welcome to HCM.
Read your problem. Hair loss has three main cause like heredity, hormonal factors and stress. Please check on your nutrition, have good nutritious food. If you have dandruff then that has to be treated. You can try with some good dermatologist, you will surely have better results. Minoxidil is also good but it takes long time.
Take care.
