I'm having hair loss on foreheadI'm finding hair loss on forehead sidesWill mintop 5 work for it ??
Dr. Himanshu Gupta
Skin Specialist
First we have to ascertain cause of the hair loss, whether it is male pattern baldness or some other reason. In MPB, these medicines will work. However, if it is normal anterotemporal recession of hairline, then not much improvement is expected

Regarding mintop please consult with allopathy doctor. With this you can follow given below: start exercise in morning and evening for atleast 20 to 30 minutes per day. Include fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. Increase water intake atleast 2 to 3 litres per day. Take small meals, don't take heavy meals. Avoid fried food or junk food.Wash hair regularly with lukewarm to cold water to keep the scalp clean and healthy - but avoid washing hair too frequently Condition hair regularly to prevent hair loss due to breakage Avoid blow drying hair especially with high heat since it leads to easy breakage of hair. Let the hair dry naturally Avoid rubbing wet hair vigorously with a towel - just gently pat them dry Avoid combing hair when wet since it is prone to breakage at such time Use a wide-toothed comb instead of a hair brush
