How to take care of severe hair loss?
Q: I am suffering from severe hair fall. I have lost 20-30% of my hair. I don't want to lose my hair further. My skin is dry and after using Mintop it is becoming even drier and I am losing more hair than earlier. Will you suggest continuing this or should I start any other medication?
A:Hair loss occurs in a number of different conditions. Andorgenetic alopecia (common baldness) can begin as early as 17 or 18 years of age, when the male hormone begins to be formed in significant amounts. Minoxidil lotion is effective in this kind of baldness as it counters the effect of the male hormone at the level of the roots of hair. Therefore it will be obvious to you that Minoxidil has practically no role in other forms of baldness. Now what is good for you will depend upon the disorder you have.
