You are suffering from female pattern baldness (google it. Its a hereditary hair loss on females where there is initially widening of partition. We have corrected almost 500 such cases surgically by hair transplant. One should remember that medicines minoxidil 5% 1 ml twice daily, a DHT inhibitor with certain precaution and only under prescription and very high protein diet (1g/kg/bw of protein) along with strong nutritional supplement is must to get improvement. Improvement takes at least 6 month to 8 month after regular intake. Diet plays a very important role. I cannot comment any further as I have not seen you. You can go to our website www.eugenix.in and their surgical correction to see such cases of female pattern hair loss. We have done more than 100 cases in last 1 and half year with great result and few cases from kolkatta as well. Remember every female does not need transplant but may need it in higher grade baldness and its not same as male hair transplant. Consult a qualified MD or DNB or DVD dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
