Hair loss help

Hi I am facing hair loss issue. As you can see the pic. The length grows but not the thickness. I oil my hair regularly. Thrice a week I shampoo my hair. Keep my hair away from dust and pollution. I am suffering from pcos too. What do I eat or apply. I had consulted a dermo who gave me minoxil something similar name drops. It was steroid. My cousin sister who is of same age used it. It worked as long as she was applying it but after discontinuing it she is lost the hair she had also. My hair grows in length but not thickness. Kindly help. Pics attached

Hi. Greetings. In women, Anaemia, hormonal issues, environmental factors , pollution, stress, junk food and poor diet could cause you to lose hair. After adequate evaluation by dermatologist, You'll probably need treatment with hair care lotions or serums - something that has vasodilator properties and improves thickness of hair and reduces hair loss - minoxidil - this is not a steroid. Have a good balanced nutritious diet. See a dermatologist near you to get evaluated if you have any other scalp problem. Control of pcos will help in reduction on hair fall. Prp is also a new form of promising therapy for improving hair density. Hope this helps. Further queries may be sent on follow up  messaging. Warm regards. Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Bangalore.

Greetings. The hair cycle normally consists of growing, resting and falling hairs and there is a delicate balance between these stages of hair cycle. Normally hair should regrow but if it is not happening, you should consider seeing a dermatologist. The treatment typically consists of topical lotion (Minoxidil). Based on the cause of hair loss, certain specific medications can also be started. It also depends on the age of the patient and if planning for conception or not. Various issues need to be decided before initiating the treatment. Further information is in the following weblink https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/hair-and-scalp-problems/hair-loss
Next Steps
