GROHAIR TRICHOLOGY CLINIC
Specialist in Hair Loss and Scalp Conditions
We have currently moved to virtual/online consultations during the Covid-19 lockdown period.
Do you need help with hair loss, hair thinning, increased shedding or a persistent scalp issue?
Welcome to GroHair Trichology Clinic, we provide a private consultation service to help investigate, diagnose and resolve your hair and scalp concerns.
The internet is full of various treatments and ‘miracle cures’ for hair loss, from hair food supplements and shampoos, to PRP therapy and laser treatment (the list is endless!). So how do you know what will work?…. The truth is, treating hair loss is not as simple as this, and blindly treating hair loss in this way will usually do nothing more than waste your time and £££, unless you know what the problem is and why.
Hair loss usually happens for a reason, and is often linked to an underlying health issue. In order to treat hair loss effectively, you need to know what type of hair loss you’re dealing with, and what the potential causes and triggers may be. For example, if your hair loss is caused by a thyroid issue, taking a biotin supplement will not help…..the underlying cause needs to be dealt with.
The good news is most types of hair loss can either be resolved or managed effectively, with the right approach and advice from a trained professional.
I’m a Certified Trichologist and I’m registered with the Association of Registered Trichologists (ART). This means that I have received the appropriate training and qualification to provide help and advice to those with hair loss and scalp issues in an honest and ethical manner.
Hair Loss and Scalp Conditions
What Happens in a Consultation
We are connected with our hair on a very emotional and psycological level. When we feel good about our hair it can completely change our mood, we feel happier, more confident and can take on the world and all the challenges it brings in a much more positive way. So, when we are unhappy with our hair (whether that’s hair loss, a bad hair cut or you’re just having one of those bad hair days), it can be incredibly stressful and have a major impact on how we feel and the choices we make in our daily lives….. so hair definitely matters and should be taken seriously!
Many people who visit my clinic have already tried to address their hair loss, but with little success. They visit their GP (which is the right thing to do), and will usually have some blood tests done. These blood test results often come back normal, or may highlight an issue which is then corrected, but hair loss continues…. sound familiar?
Why should you visit a Trichologist?
The simple answer to this is…… We know hair!
We spend a long time getting to know hair (inside and out), which involves many years of study and training to really understand hair loss, why it happens, and more importantly what to do about it!
What is Trichology?
Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp, both in health and disease.
A Trichologist is a trained professional who has undergone specialised training to understand the structure and function of the hair and scalp, and the diseases and disorders associated with them. We also have a good understanding of general anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, genetics and nutrition.
