Hair loss men

Im 21. Im in stage 2 of male pattern baldness. It probably began in January 2016. Right now I lose less hair in the shower after shampoo, just 2-4. My doctor advised me minoxidil along sith hair serum and tablet multi-vitamin(biotin). Minoxidil only has effect as long as Im using it. But I cant be stuck on minoxidil forever. So if I stop minoxidil, will I be in a worse condition than before using it? Is it worth giving a try? People lose a lot of hair quickly once they stop minoxidil.

Hi. You have male pattern hair loss. It a progressive condition, if left untreated ll end up in baldness.

So retain you hair as long as possible with medications like minoxidil n others

Hair transplant is the only permanent solution,  if done at early stages. One should be ready for multiple transplants

Thanks

At this stage you have to use minoxidil to arrest hair loss. Hair transplant is only permanent solution but not needed at your stage.
