Thanks for the information

This can be genetic or hereditary

Hormonal abnormalities can be another reason but usual in that case many other symptoms

If it continue the same way you might need to use minoxidil spray to help in re-growth of hair

In your case it seems like a familial problem

Does this mean going bald

Well it can not be predicted right away as some time the problem stops and there is no complete baldness so it can only be seen with time

What do you mean by hormone problem
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I’m 19 the spray your recomendingbdoes it have side effects

Hormone disorder like hyperthyroidism and testosterone excess can be the reason for baldness but as I said with hormonal disorder there are many other symptoms

Regards

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Would you recommend blood test to rule out other things

Not much side effects since it is used topically

Yes you should have a thyroid function test

What about oils to help your scalp
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Or any diet
Recommendations
Or supplements

Which oil in particular you are asking ?

Regards

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Any oil which would help hair growth

Actually they are not recommended as there is no research to prove their effectiveness

Medically effective way is the use of Minoxidil spray

Regards

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
What about
Diet
Supplements
To help hair growth

Yes they can be helpful if they contain Vitamin C, Biotin, Niacin, Iron and Zinc

These can be in dietary sources or in form of supplements

Regards

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is there any thing else you would recommend

Well you can start with the supplements and see how it goes and if it get worse then Minoxidil spray
