Hair Loss Consultation is the process used by Trichologists to get to the root of the problem meaning….. Trichology is the study of hair and scalp disorders. Getting to the root of the problem requires an in-depth look at the client's medical history, lifestyle , eating habits and family history as well as a microscopic analysis of the scalp.
- Medical History... is an indicator to getting to the root of the problem. Although Trichologists are not doctors, they have to study the body systems in order to understand how the body system functions.
- Eating Habits…
Why is diet important when it comes to hair growth?
Your hair cells are the second fastest-growing cells in your body (second only to intestinal cells). To add to this, you have roughly 120,000 hairs on your scalp, all of which need nourishment in order to grow. But because hair is not a vital organ or tissue, your body will never prioritise its nutritional needs. So, due to hair’s expendable nature, a nutritional imbalance will often show up first in the form of hair loss.
Both deficiencies, as well as excesses, of certain things in your diet can result in hair loss. For example, in our London and New York Clinics, we often see hair loss caused by iron and ferritin (stored iron) deficiency. We have also seen hair loss resulting from an overload of vitamin A (found in oily fish, liver, cheese etc).
Never underestimate the effect that diet can have on your hair. Nutritional deficiencies usually first show up in your hair and can cause excessive hair shedding and also stunted hair growth. (source - Phillip Kingsley)
