Try Rogaine (minoxidil): plus 3x/week use Head and shoulders shampoo: leave on 5-7 minutes then rinse off. I would suggest a dermatology consultation to rule out a fungal scalp infection.

Hair loss: Cause of the hair loss (alopecia) needs to be diagnosed by primary care doctor or dermatologist first before any treatment is tried.
