thinning of hair and turning copper/reddish tinge, kindly suggest

my hair has been thinning significantly for the last 3 years, and lately it s been turning a copper/reddish tinge. I do not think it s due to male pattern baldness since i m only 19 and my dad and grandparents have a full head of hair.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi.., since your parents are normal the changes are not genetic, the hair loss, thinning and color changes in your hair are due usage of acidic dyes, shampoos, gels which are used.. avoid those things and use mild soap foe bathing like pears soap.. do not use any shampoo.. use soap to take bath.. also improve the diet... then the hair-fall will stop and improvement will be seen..
Hope I have answered your question..
