How to stop hair loss in men

Patient

Q: What can I do about my hair loss? My hair started falling out about 1-2 years ago and has proceded to the stage where it is not yet visible when I style it but can be visible after a shower, when my hair is straggly, wet etc. I read that it probably has something to do with DHT hence I would like to ask how to effectively block DHT and regrow some hair in the crown area.

Symptoms:  Hair falling out in the crown area I suspect this is androgenic alopecia - the symptoms match
