Everything you need to know about a Trichologist


“Life is too short to have boring hair.”

Now, boring hair is one thing but hair problems such as hair loss, baldness, and itchy scalp are a whole other conversation. We live in a world which contributes perfectly to hair loss. Factors such as poor diet, stress, depression, change in thermal regime, mineral deficiencies, and sedentary lifestyles, lead to an increase in this condition. This is where a Trichologist comes to our rescue. 

Trichologists specialize in diagnosing and treating issues related to scalp health and hair loss. They can help treat hair loss, alopecia, hair thinning, hair fall, itchy/flaky scalp, and more. Trichology as a science was founded by The Institute of Trichologists in London, UK, in 1902. Trichologists are trained in life sciences and they look at hair loss problems in a holistic way by evaluating client’s information, thus suggesting customized treatment, giving dietary advice, and recommending lifestyle changes. 

The condition of your hair is an indicator of your general health and Trichologists thoroughly examine your hair and scalp to provide you with the best treatment. Stopping hair loss cannot be achieved by simply trying different products on your hair. Research shows that there are multiple reasons for hair fall and most products in the market focus solely on one type of hair fall.  Trichologists help you understand and block these reasons that caused the hair to fall in the first place by treating you with a multi-therapeutic trichological system to improve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp.

Problems related to hair can take a toll on your mental health and confidence. Therefore, in 2010 Dr. David Kingsley founded the World Trichology Society in New York, New York USA. He decided to treat this problem in a more scientific way, which was different than what the previous institutes did. Trichologists, unlike dermatologists, have a complete understanding of hair and scalp problems and how best it can be treated. 

Since hair is considered the crown of a man/ woman, its loss is an important cause of discomfort and disability. Continuous advancements in understanding hair growth biology are being made across the globe. Hair research societies such as the North American Hair Research Society, the Korean Hair Research Society; the Society of Hair Research, Japan; the Hair Research Society of India and the Association of Professional Society of Trichologists, Moscow, Russia are constantly researching on hair follicles and new technologies to cure problems related to hair and scalp. 

It is important to note that you don’t need to suffer from hair problems to consult a trichologist: many people choose to do so because they want advice on keeping their hair and scalp in a healthy condition. As they rightly say, prevention is better than cure. 

A trichologist will show genuine interest in your hair problem and will connect with you on an emotional level too. They will help you recognize and understand your problems in the easiest way and then ascend to a step by step individualized treatment plan. So, just like the other parts of your body, give care and attention to your hair too, and book an appointment with a certified trichologist today.
