Hair loss problem

I am a 29 year old male and I have lost a lot of hair. Male pattern baldness. I have been advised transplants. Is there no non surgical solution other than wigs that clearly look fake?

Hi, ur male pattern baldness is due to ur genetic predisposition & male sex hormones. which results in shrinking of ur hair follicle leading to thin hair.The hair follicles remain alive which suggest that it is still possible to grow new hair. consult ur dermatologist for medications.
