What is Trichology?
Trichology is the medical practice and study of hair health, hair loss and scalp disorders.
A trichologist is a hair and scalp specialist. Trichologists carry out trichology examinations that gives a snapshot of your overall health, revealing possible medical, hormonal, nutritional and genetic issues. Some hair and scalp conditions that people do suffer from:
hair loss, thinning or breakage
psoriasis, scaling, itching
baldness and bald patches
Hair is sensitive and can tell a very detailed story about our body’s internal and external wellbeing.
When you book your first Consultation, we would prefer you not wash your hair for at least 48 hours prior to your appointment as shampooing can wash away some of the vital evidence needed for an accurate diagnosis of your concern.
It is also useful to bring with you any herbal remedies and medication that you use on a regular basis and any current blood tests you may have, in particular your iron studies.
