Depends on cause.: There are many kinds of hair loss, with many causes, from illnesses to surgical procedures to medications to crash diets to stress. Once you know the cause you can tailor a treatment plan. Your dermatologist can help you with this. Betamethasone will help with some types of hair loss but not others - so get professional help for this.
