Remedies for hair loss at the age of 23

I am a 23 year old boy. I have been facing the problem of excessive hair loss since a year. By now I have lost 90% of my hair. I have been using many ayurvedic oils but the hair loss is increasing day-by-day. Could you please suggest me remedies for minimizing hair loss and regrowing?

Hi Welcome to Healthcare Magic ,
Hairloss has many causes , few are treatable like low heamoglobin , thyroid abnormalities , malnutrition etc but few have very poor prognosis like male pattern baldness which is usually genetic . There are only 2 FDA approved medical treatment for hairloss 1) MINOXIDIL solution 2 & 5 % for local application twice daily 2) Tab Finasteride . Surgical being Hair transplant. I have no knowledge about ayurvedic oils , so it would be wrong on my part to comment on them , but the allopathic treatment are these three.U get a dermatologist consultation , get few blood tests to rule out treatable causes and then can start treatent depending on the cause.
Thank you , hope this was helpful...
