What Is Trichology?

Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp.  The name originates from the Greek trikhos, meaning hair.

All qualified hairdressers should have a solid understanding of the hair and conditions which can affect it, but trichologists are fully trained specialists who are qualified to examine your scalp and hair, diagnose conditions affecting them and offer treatments to tackle conditions including hair loss.

When Should You Visit A Trichologist?

The most common reason for people to visit our Dorset hair loss clinic is because they have noticed their hair starting to thin. 

It’s important to recognise the early signs of hair loss so the cause can be identified and effective treatments offered.   Signs include:

  • Widening of your parting
  • Your scalp becoming more visible through your hair
  • Reduced volume in your ponytail
  • Noticeable hairs on your pillow in the morning
  • An increase in hair left on your brush
  • Excessive hair in the shower drain
  • A tingling scalp or crawling feeling across your head.  

If you are worried about hair loss, book an appointment at our Westbourne clinic and we can help diagnose the underlying cause and offer treatments.

In addition to treating hair loss, we can offer treatments for scalp conditions including eczema, folliculities and psoriasis.

At our Bournemouth clinic we provide a full range of the very latest treatments for hair loss.  These include nutrition and wellness advice, scalp treatments, IV vitamins, platelet rich plasma treatments (PRP) and more.
