What is Trichology?
“Trichology is the para-medical science of the hair, hair loss and associated scalp problems. It encompasses the study of the diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders.
Today, trichology is perceived as the “bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.”
What does a Trichologist do?
“A trichologist is a hair and scalp specialist. Trained in life sciences, they look at hair loss problems in a holistic way by evaluating clients on the basis of personal history, lifestyle, genetic factors and environmental conditions. Based on this information, a trichologist is able to suggest individualized treatments, give nutritional advice and recommend lifestyle changes to improve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp.
Like other para-medical (non-physician) health specialists such as nutritionists, a competent trichologist should work closely with your medical doctor to find out whether any medical problems are associated with your hair loss. Your physician should also be willing to work with your trichologist with respect to taking and analyzing blood tests that your trichologist suggests.
A competent trichologist should be able to genuinely empathize with you. He or she should also spend time advising you on how to best cope with your condition as part of the treatment regimen.”
