How to regrow a teenagers hair back after chemotherapy?

My 18 year old son finished chemo April 2015 for Hodgkin's lymphoma, he used to have thick wavy hair but now his hair is very thin and you can see his scalp in some spots. He's been very patient waiting for all his hair to regrow back but now he is getting very discouraged and upset. Please let me know what shampoo, vitamins or anything he can do to regrow his thick hair back.. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Chemotherapy

You do not need minoxidil after hair transplantation, as dihydrotestosterone does not affect the transplanted hair follicles at all. However, the remaining scalp hair follicles are still affected. There is no proof of any benefit of minoxidil (even through a doctor may offer you to use it for 6 months) as when you stop applying it, the scalp follicles untouched by surgeon will return to their pre-minoxidil state. Consult your surgeon with advice on advanced care after the transplantation.
