What is Trichology?
Trichology is the paramedical science that studies the hair and the scalp. It treats the diseases that affect human hair as well as hair loss and scalp problems associated with it. Through Trichology we can better understand the cause(s) behind hair loss and treat the disorders accordingly.
What is a Trichologist?
A Trichologist is someone who studies and treats hair and scalp ailments and focuses on the process of regrowing hair. Trichologists search for answers by getting to know the client's personal history, lifestyle, genetic factors and environmental conditions. Details such as if he/she is on medications, suffers from hormonal imbalance, is under a lot of stress, or has nutritional deficiencies, are all fundamental to a trichologist.
Based on this information a hair specialist will in fact be able to properly assess your case and suggest treatment plans and lifestyle changes that will improve your hair growth and benefit your scalp.
Trichologists are para-medicals, which means that they supplement and support medical work. Your physician and your health specialist should therefore work together in order to better understand whether your hair loss can be associated with medical problems or deficiencies that your doctor can help resolve.
Trichologists are specifically trained on hair and scalp health, which means that, unlike dermatologists, they have a complete understanding of how hair loss works and how best it can be treated.
More than 80 % of men and nearly 50% of women experience significant hair loss during their lifetime. For many, the thinning starts well before middle age.

There are several factors that can cause hair loss, and many can happen simultaneously.
