Thanks for the query. Please do not be depressed and cheer up. Your treatment begins from there. A healthy body and a healthy mind in mandatory. Minoxidil traditionally was prescribed at the strength of 2 % for female pattern hair loss but in 2014 US FDA and Canada both agreed and have allowed usage of 5 % also. This increase percentage of strength of minoxidil has to be used once daily only for female pattern hair loss . There are certain other products which can be used also as you have an option remaining since you are using Minoxidil 5 % once daily. AVOID HAIR OILS in all forms.
