Suggest treatment for severe hair loss

In the last couple of months my hair has been falling out to the point where I can see my scalp. I ve been putting coconut oil, then switched to vitamin email oil, now I use sweet almond oil with aloe vera in my shampoo. Ever since then my hair is falling out especially in the front. Did I over oil my hair. Also I m 67yoa please help me.

Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of severe hair loss which is resembling you have male pattern baldness which is also known as androgenic alopecia which occurs mainly due to genetic makeup and due to hormonal changes. Need not to worry. You should apply Mintop 10% directly to the scalp to help hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles. You should start with the use of Finasteride combinations as it interferes with the production of male hormone which are related to cause baldness. Visit dermatologist once and get it examined and start medication after proper prescription. Maintain complete hygiene. You should take multivitamins containing biotin.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
