Trichology

What is trichology:
Trichology is the science of hair and scalp. Trichology comes from the Greek word Trikhos meaning hair.

A Trichologist can diagnose and help hair and scalp disorders. Some of those disorders include Alopecia Areata, Hair loss, Totalis, Universalis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Hair thinning, Male and Female Pattern Baldness, Dandruff, Telogen Effluvium, Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, Greasy or dry hair, Irritation, Seborrhea, Scalp itching, Hair breakage and damage, Scaly or flaky scalps. These disorders are often kept under control using a natural method which is chemical free and without side effects.
 
WHY WE USE MICROSCOPY
The microscope reveals essential information about the structure of the hair, any obvious deficiencies such as the lack of minerals and the condition of the hair. Hair is one of the body’s metabolically active tissues, often reflecting the first signs of internal problems.
Microscopy is also used to examine the hair root (bulb). Examining a sample of the live hair bulbs will give an indication of the amount of hair loss and also any further loss that may occur in the short term. Examining the root will give a good indication of what is the probable cause of the hair loss or what is interfering with the normal hair growth cycle and quality.

Cheryl uses a unique method which involves the application of essential oils to acupressure points to correct and control the underlying cause and encourage self-healing. She has many years experience and have been successful in helping patients to lead more comfortable lives, many of whom had been told that nothing could be done to improve their condition.
 
The aim of a Trichologist is to determine the underlying cause of these disorders and use a combination of home and clinical sessions with the application of unique aromatherapy oils to help systems within the scalp or skin to function normally.
