Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

It seems to me that the hair in front has started to thin. This thinning occurs due to the increase in the testosterone which cause an increase in DHT. It is DHT which causes an increase in hair fall. DHT causes hair fall in males and is a natural phenomenon.

You can slow down hair fall by being gentle to your hair. Pat drying your hair instead of rubbing your hair dry. Also, see a Doctor if you start getting sudden and increased hair loss. Do not take hormone supplements as these will do more harm than good. Hope this helps you.

All the best.
