Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp. It stems from the Greek word 'trichos', meaning 'hair' and the suffix 'ology', which means 'the study of'. A Trichologisist specializes in all matters relating to hair and scalp health. Trichology takes a holistic approach to treatment, which involves taking into account lifestyle, diet and wellbeing as a whole, as well as the signs and symptoms present.

Trichology healthcare is parallel to Dermatology. Using science and biology, a Trichologist is able to identify disorders of poor scalp environments. Trichologists can also provide scientific healthy hair care restoration systems for many types of hair loss. Clinical Trichologists are para-medical professionals. They are skilled and trained to properly treat hair loss through non-surgical hair replacement, as well as treat scalp disorders with the assistance of medical professionals along with health and wellness experts.

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Hair! The condition of your hair is an indicator of your general health. Hair which is dull and lifeless can suggest a stressed, unhealthy lifestyle whereas hair which is full and shiny is a sign of being healthy.

  • Hair is inter-related to what is happening internally in the body. Your hair is the second fastest growing cell in your body, the fastest being your intestinal cells. However, unlike your intestines, hair is a non-essential tissue. Psychologically it is very crucial, but physically, you could survive without it. Your metabolism doesn’t prioritize your hair’s needs, but instead aims to keep your essential tissues functioning first. This means your hair is usually the first to suffer from any internal disruption such as health related matters or physical trauma to the body.

    During the consultation process we will identify any hair and scalp disorders by including blood work to test for nutrient deficiencies, scalp examination to identify potential patterns and shapes of hair loss and gathering medical, lifestyle and family information. If necessary you may be referred to a medical professional if there are signs of hormonal imbalance or autoimmune disease. It is our practice to always consult with your general doctor and any other relevant medical specialists about your blood work results.
