How can I control this hair loss ?

I'm 21yrs male and I've noticed a considerable decrease in my hair density. It's thinning by the day. Each time I brush my hair I find tens of strands fall apart. I still have a good amount left on my scalp though. How can I control this hair loss. My father is bald. Will medication help or must I wait till I lose a lot and consider hair transplantation

Welcome to healthcare magic.
Yes in males, hair los s is hereditary called as androgenic alopecia.
But that doesn't mean you should not try medications or prevention.
You should visit a trichologist for should also take a nutritious diet, plenty of water and exercise daily to improve general health.But you should keep your expectations realistic and be practical rather than expecting a miracle.
