What is Trichology?

Trichology falls somewhere between cosmetology and dermatology. It is the study of the hair and scalp. A trichologist is educated in scalp conditions that may lead to hair loss.

Part of the trichological training is in life sciences where to assess a client’s situation in a holistic manner taking into consideration one’s lifestyle, genetics, personal history and environment. Based on their findings they will suggest an individualized treatment program to improve the condition of the scalp and hair. A trichologist is not a medical doctor but ideally they will have some type of training or certification to diagnose and treat diseases and disorders of the scalp.

Your trichologist should recommend working with your medical doctor to assess any medical problems associated with hair loss such as vitamin deficiencies, autoimmune conditions or hormonal imbalances. With the help of medical lab tests from your doctor your trichologist will offer solutions to address the cause of your thinning hair or hair loss when possible.

Trichologists seek to improve the condition of your scalp to ensure a healthy environment for hair growth as well as look at the hair itself to improve its strength and texture.

With more research being done in the area of hair loss, trichology is becoming an increasingly popular concept. Optimizing the health of the scalp is a crucial component to healthy hair growth. Men and women are realizing that prevention or slowing of hair loss is a worthwhile investment because of how it effects their self-esteem in their relationships as well as their career.
