Hi, thanks for your query.
You seem to have chronic telogen effluvium
or androgenic alopecia
for which you have been prescribed mintop 2%.Minoxidil
works by causing vasodilation
which increases blood supply to the hair root. It converts fine hair to course hair Thus increase the fullness. But this growth lasts as long as minoxidil is used. As you stop it these hair shed off. So minoxidil has to be continued.
Minoxidil causes dry hair, which can be taken care of by using a mild shampoo for washing hair and then using a conditioner after every wash.
Thinning of hair is not due to minoxidil but probably due to androgenic alopecia.
At no point of time you are going to get bald so rest assured regarding this.
You may meet a dermatologist
for exact cause of hair loss in your case and discuss other treatment options accordingly.
Hope this solves your query.
