If you have concerns about hair loss, there are several things Dr. Zelda Harding board certified Cosmetologist / Trichologist can do to address your problem. First, certain tools must be ascertained such as a comprehensive medical form, visual examination, microscopic evaluation and consulting with client is needed to reach an assessment.
There are so many things that can cause hair / scalp maladies. In searching for the solution, scientific investigation has to be adhered too. There is always a cause and effect. For example, if your body is deficient in iron, zinc, protein or any combination; your fingernails will show it. Any one of these can contribute to some form of hair loss. It’s very important to have a good understanding of the growth anatomy and physiology of the hair shaft and follicle. It may show a systemic condition. If a scalp disorder is identified, (such as warts, viruses, parasites…) as a Trichologist we cannot treat these conditions. Once your doctor has address this disorder, the scalp can be treated with soothing techniques to aid the hair and scalp to return to optimal health..
The number one cause of hair loss is stress and it maybe chemical or mechanical. While discussing your concerns, an assessment form should be filled out to determine if you have an adrenal gland or thyroid gland imbalance. Maybe an iron or vitamin deficiency is the problem, just to name a few. If hair loss is due to DHT (dehydrotestostone), DHT blockers should be used. These blockers create a barrier around the hair follicles to inhibit penetration at the root, thereby hair stops miniaturizing and returns to its ideal width, length and strength.
These are just a few things we do here to analyze and treat hair loss.
