Dr. Vivek Chail MD

Hi, Thanks for writing in. You could apply Minoxidil lotion on your scalp as per directions on the package insert. It has been proven to be helpful for hair regrowth. Hope this helps.

Dr. Manjeth Kumar G MD

Welcome, Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo. Reduce your stress by yoga and meditation. Always use mild anti dandruff shampoo for wash. Have healthy foods always. Avoid junk foods. Hope this helps. Take care.
