Help For Medical Hair Loss

what is a trichologist?

A clinical trichologist is a healthcare professional who specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of hair and scalp disorders. These professionals are trained to assess and address a wide range of hair and scalp conditions, both common and rare. Here are some key aspects of clinical trichologist.


Expert in hair and scalp health: Clinical trichologists are experts in the health and physiology of hair and the scalp. They have in-depth knowledge of the structure and function of hair follicles, hair growth cycles, and the various factors that can impact hair and scalp health.

Diagnosis: Trichologists are skilled at diagnosing a wide range of hair and scalp conditions, including but not limited to alopecia (hair loss), dandruff, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis, and other dermatological issues affecting the hair and scalp.

Treatment: Clinical trichologists develop personalised treatment plans for individuals with hair and scalp disorders. These treatments may include topical solutions, medicated shampoos, lifestyle, and dietary recommendations, and, in some cases, referrals for medical or surgical interventions.

Education and support: Trichologists educate their patients about proper hair and scalp care practices, which can be crucial for maintaining healthy hair. They also provide support for individuals dealing with hair loss or scalp conditions, as these issues can have emotional and psychological impacts.

Monitoring and follow-up: Trichologists provide ongoing care and monitoring for their patients. This includes tracking progress, adjusting treatment plans as needed, and ensuring that patients are achieving the desired outcome.

Collaboration: Trichologists may collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as dermatologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists, to address underlying medical conditions that can affect hair and scalp health.

Research and continued education: Many clinical trichologists stay up-to-date with the latest research and developments in the field of trichology. They may also pursue continuing education to expand their knowledge and skills.


Here are some conditions and situations that a Trichologist may address:

  • Hair loss or breakage
  • Sudden or persistent hair shedding
  • Autoimmune or scarring hair loss disorders
  • Specific skin conditions affecting the hair and scalp
  • Hair shaft abnormalities leading to breakage or difficulty in hair management
  • Skin or hair infections, including fungal or bacterial infections, which may necessitate referral to a general practitioner
  • Excessive and unwanted hair growth, known as hirsutism and hypertrichosis
  • Hair discoloration due to environmental factors
  • General deterioration in the appearance and condition of the hair
  • Counseling for individuals considering hair transplantation or other hair replacement procedures
  • Hair loss linked to nutritional deficiencies, including iron deficiency
  • Hair loss issues associated with significant events like injury, childbirth, illness, medication, and more
  • Endocrine disorders, such as thyroid under-activity, elevated androgen levels, and polycystic ovarian syndrome


Trichologists adopt a holistic approach to treatment, considering a wide array of factors, including lifestyle, diet, and overall well-being in conjunction with the presented signs and symptoms. This comprehensive perspective ensures a thorough and tailored approach to addressing hair and scalp concerns.
