I am a 38 yr old male with male pattern baldness. last 3 months i am rapidly losing hair even from the so called permanent hair ie the back of the head and even from just above the side-locks, apart from the top and the vertex. I lose almost 15-20 hair every time i comb or wash my hair. the hair have also become dry and lusterless.and even started greying rapidly. i had taken saw-palmetto for 7-9 months with no good results. nowadays i am on serenoa capsules twice a day for the last one and a half months. i am also using a homeopathic medicine which has selenium,lycopodium, jaborandi(indian name) and Phos. acid as its ingredients. What should i do? I have been advised to use minoxydil 05% twice daily and also use spironlactone.please tell me what are the ingredients of this spironolactone? Spironolactone is a chemical which has been around for some time. It is an androgen blocker, currently used by some for hair loss, in a topical reparation applied directly to the hair.
