Trichology: What It Is and How It Can Help Treat Scalp Disorders and Hair Loss

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

If you're experiencing hair loss, a scalp disorder, or any other hair-related issue, you may be wondering what your treatment options are. Thankfully, help is available in the form of trichology- the science of hair and scalp health. In this blog post, we'll explore what trichology is and isn't, and discuss how it can be used to treat a variety of scalp disorders and hair loss conditions.

What is Trichology?

Trichology is the scientific study of the structure, function, and diseases of the human hair. It is a branch of dermatology that focuses specifically on the hair and scalp. Trichologists are trained to identify and treat a wide range of hair and scalp conditions.

While trichology is sometimes confused with cosmetology or wigmaking, it is actually a separate field with its own unique set of skills and knowledge. Trichologists are not cosmetologists or wigmakers- they are experts in hair and scalp health.

There are many different Scalp disorders that can be treated by trichologists.

Some common Scalp disorders include dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, and scalp fungus.

Hair loss is another common condition that trichologists treat. Hereditary hair loss, also known as male or female pattern baldness, is the most common type of hair loss. Trichologists can also help treat other types of hair loss, such as alopecia areata (patchy hair loss) and telogen effluvium (diffuse hair shedding).

If you're experiencing any Scalp disorders or hair-loss related issues, don't hesitate to seek out the help of a qualified trichologist. With their expert knowledge and experience, they can help you identify the cause of your problem and find the best possible treatment solution for you. Scalp disorders and hair loss can be difficult to deal with, but with the help of a trichologist, you can get your hair and scalp back to good health.
