Que: I am 18 years old and since the last 6 months, I have been losing a lot of hair, especially from the front part of my head. My father is completely bald, which indicates that this could be a genetic problem. All I want to know is that if there is any way to slow down the process, because I would rather go bald at a later stage in my life.
Ans: Absolutely! There are several ways of delaying baldness, and the first includes a combination of oral medications such as Finasteride & Biotin, along with the application of topical medications such as Minoxidil. PRP or plasma rich platelet therapy has also shown promising results in several cases. In addition, you will have to make sure that you are healthy from within – eat right, including several fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet and lots of water. You should also try to reduce the levels of stress in your daily life. Visit a trichologist on a regular basis, who will be able to pinpoint the right course for you.
