But I when I searched for minoxidil I found that it works only when it is applied after that hair starts falling again I need my hair back permanently.

You may be suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts refeeding  from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. This may also be accompanied by severe dandruff. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is a lotion and tablets. There is no other alternative. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised  and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects on the hair roots. Along with this, you can also consider platelet rich plasma therapy for faster results. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting.

Hello, Minoxidil can cause the already dead hair of your scalp to fall off. And simultaneously  stimulate new hair to come. This procedure is slow, you need to be patient. Hair cycle has a growing phase which is 1-2 years and a shedding phase that is 3-6months, so you will have to give time to minoxidil to act. For further comment on your treatment plan and condition will have to ask few questions.
