Hair loss affects both men and women. But is there anything that can be done when you notice your hair is starting to fall out? In this video, Dr. Bobby Buka says one way is to simply embrace it and go with hairstyles that work for you. If that’s not in the cards, try Biotin, an over-the-counter vitamin that can help strengthen existing hair and even grow new strands. Talk to your dermatologist about Minoxidil and Finasteride to see if they could be good for you. Whatever you choose, stick to the treatment for at least six months for the best results.
