Hi and thank you for contacting us.

Through the statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information there are a few factors that could cause hair loss such as:

  • abnormal level of androgen hormones
  • genetics. You have a family history of baldness
  • stress can cause hair loss
  • chemotherapy
  • autoimmune disease
  • shampooing too often, bleaching and dying your hair makes your hair thinner and weaker
  • illness such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, iron deficiency anemia
  • low protein diet can lead temporary hair loss

There are a few treatment plans you can discuss with your doctor to know get the right treatment for your condition such as:

  • minoxidil. It helps in slowing down the hair loss and stimulate new hair to grow
  • finasteride is a medication that can help by blocking the hormone causing hair loss
  • hair transplant is an expensive treatment and you should consult with your doctor on what’s the best plan for you
