Hi Pooja,
Thanks for writing in.

The condition you are suffering from is androgenetic alopecia.

Continue using minoxidil (pilogrow)twice daily it takes 3-4 months to show visible effects.
Follihair contains biotin and other minerals required for hair growth.It is useful and does not have any side effects.You can take it safely one tablet per day.
Also few other prescription medications and procedure can be useful to grow your hair naturally.
Mesotherapy and PRP therapy can help you a lot.
Finabald is finasteide it can have side effects and better not to take it.
I advise you to visit a qualified dermatologist for prescription medications.

Hope this helps.
