As a client have you ever walked into a Salon and asked if they provide trichological treatments? Sounds like a strange disease doesn’t it? It’s not…and it may be the best thing that ever happened to you and your scalp and hair problems.

Hair and Scalp

A person who is qualified to practice trichology treats the whole person…not just one specific area. They ask about your diet, your health, the medications that you take and your daily life habits. They use this information to evaluate your situation so that they can send you to the right person with the right products and treatments to help solve your hair issues.

Many hair salons have someone on staff who has studied trichology and is experienced in this thorough method of evaluating you. It’s a great start down the road to solving your hair issues and insures that nothing is over-looked when seeking the right treatments for your particular issue.

You have probably read about various products both over the counter and via prescription that treat hair loss, thinning or breakage. You probably know a little about laser treatments and even hair transplants. Did you know that your lifestyle can be causing your problems? That a simple change in diet can help? Someone well versed in the practice of trichology can guide you and point you in the right direction. Did you know that relaxing scalp treatments can help heal and improve the quality of your hair. A trichologist or someone knowledgeable in this field will talk to you about your scalp and how important treatments are.

Once you have been evaluated (many salons offer free evaluations), you can proceed to the right and best treatment for you. Take advantage of all your salon or hair restoration center has to offer and ask questions. A good salon will be able to answer them to your satisfaction.

One of the most important things that anyone can do is to educate themselves and to listen to what your professional has to say. You have probably spent a lot of time worrying about losing your hair and your salon and/or hair restoration specialist has spent a lot of time learning how to fix your problems and they can lead you to the right hair care products and treatments.

Take advantage of all they have to offer and ask the right questions when you visit your salon.
Remember the word…TRICHOLOGY.
