Hi ,
Welcome to HCP.

You can add nutritional supplements which will help you increase hair growth and as well you can also consult an dermatologist. Eat lot of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Welcome To HCM.
You have hereditary pattern of baldness.It is very difficult to control but certain medicines and local treatment is there to reduce it for that you have to consult dermatologist for better guidance and medical mangement.
Otherwise use proper hair oil,do gentle massage of it on scalp.
Take all nutricious diet and proper liquid intake,avoid stress.
Hair transplant is the best choice of treatment in future for you.
