welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
for androgenic alopecia there is no permanent cure a.only minoxidil will delay the loss
hair transplant is permanent cure for it
you have t use minoxidil twice daily by rubbing it on scalp
use it under guidance of a dermatologist
take nutritious diet .have a healthy life style
take care

welcome to healthcaremagic forum
ya ,it is true that minoxidil will work only when you applied it .
but it is very and only effective medicine
so we have no other option
you can apply at night 3-4 times a wk
apply over dry scalp only as water or oil will dilute it
just apply and spread it dont rub it
you can use finasteride tab for best result .
i hope i have answered your question
