Hi, Good day to you.
I would like to enquire about hair loss in male. I am a 22 years old adult. I have a parenting background ( My mom has hairloss issue ). I currently encounting that I am slightly have hairfall & hair Thinning. I recently had consultation with 2 different dermatologist & One HairDOC beauty consultant. The doctors advise me to use Topical Minoxidil & orally Finastride. The beauty consultant told me that hair treatments would give better result than mixodil & finasteride. As per consulting, I have a final review on my scalp that they confirmed I have Hair follicle blockage & Hormone imbalance ( DHT ). What can I do to get rid of scalp pore blockages and reduce DHT? Is there any prodecure that I can affort than spending thousands of ringgits to treatment at outside? Please advise me, there are many people who suffering from same issues as well.
Thank you so much for helping me out.

Hello and good afternoon.

Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your situation. I will try to help you.

For your information there are a few factors that could cause hair loss such as:

  • abnormal level of androgen hormones
  • injury to the scalp
  • infection of the scalp
  • medical condition called alopecia
  • genetics.
  • 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

Therefore I highly recommend you speak to your doctor regarding your situation to provide you with the safest and best route of care to manage your condition as a whole, taking into account the various factors mentioned above and more. You can contact our doctor online for further information and treatment.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
