Hi!Bijayalaxmi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

In females the most common cause of hair loss is –iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,or use of chemical on scalp ,procedures like perming or straightening etc. Other rare causes are zn & copper def. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat. In females there are various patterns of hair loss,which can be judged clinically by a dermatologist. As you have mentioned its the frontal area getting involved that would mean a hormonal patter of hair loss. You should get your hormonal level checked along with an ultra sound if necessary to rule out PCOD.This usually seen in obese patient with irregular periods. Other simple test which we do are hair pull test and trichogram to diagnose which type of hair loss is there.
After proper diagnosis you can start with topical preparations like Minoxidil 2%-5% applied twice daily on scalp along with tab biotin one daily.Other hormonal medicines are also available if needed.
We in our hospital also have a laser for hair growth .It is US FDA approved and is very effective. So,if you have these facilities at your place then you can avail them.

Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, sprouts ,pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play . We also do hair transplantation for those needed.

regards,
Dr.Chawda

Hi Doctor. I am 35 and loosing hair very fast. I am at a very interesting stage where I feel a need to act fast.Researching options online lead to so many confusion. I do not like the idea of hair transplant and wanted to see what can be done otherwise.I have recently purchased Alpecin shampoo. However, lot of articles refer to regaine (minoxidil). I am thereby not sure what path to follow. I have also come across http://www.stopandregrow.com/ clinic which claims a cure to baldness with a commitment of 150 to 200 dollars medicines per month. All review seem great.I would really appreciate your insight and help with the topic. Kind Regards.Aman.
