Is minoxidil a solution for hairfall after straightening?

Hi I have got my straightening done recently. From then I am facing hairball issue. But my doctor from practice website prescribed me minoxidil 2%. When I referred online, I got to know that it is to treat Androgenetic alopecia. Can I use this spray to treat my hairfall?

Anything involving minoxidil is a life-time commitment. Once you use it it will bring hair back (with possible side effects) but if you stop using it, it will go back to where it was. Has your hair not come back naturally?
