I can understand your concern for the less hair on scalp region with hair fall.

The scalp hair are basically genetically mediated so it depends on family pattern.You can take vitamins in the form of biotin, calicium pantothenate and other vitamin B complexes.

The tablet Finpecia you enumerated is an anti-testosterone tablets which contains finasteride in it and therefore need to take it under dermatological guidance only.

Additionally increase you protein intake on daily basis and eat sprouts. Eat a lot of green leafy vegetables and sprouts which contains vitamins and minerals necessary for normal hair function.

Minoxidil is helpful but should always be applied under dermatological supervision other wise can cause irritation on the scalp.You should consult a dermatologist and take guidance so that long term use can be maintained.

Take care.

Thank for asking to HCM
Herr for just your information and not to discourage you, there is no permanent treatment which could grow the hair back the alopecia is gene related and age related problem and may not b consider as disease, you can only get the temporary relief or placebo effect and not the permanent one so leave it have nice day.
