Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of hair loss which seems to be due to genetic factor, fungal infection, stress and hormonal changes.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to take Indian gooseberry powder (half spoon) with water once a day and use almond oil. Yes you can complete that shampoo for hair loss. You should consult dermatologist for proper examination. Doctor may order skin patch test , blood test and physical examination. Doctor may prescribe you drug like finpecia at least for 3-4 months or anti fungal treatment along with minoxidil spray. Doctor may also prescribe supplements like Vitamin A ,Omega-3 and Vitamin E.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
