What Is Trichology?
Trichology has been around since the early 1900's. It is a para-medical field, which is the study of hair and scalp disorders that involves the anatomy and physiology of hair. The study of Trichology began in London, England in 1902. Trichology is taken from the Greek word “tricho” meaning “hair” and is the branch of medicine that has to do with the anatomy, growth and diseases of the hair. Trichology is an area of hair that embraces both naturopathic, western medicine, endocrinology and dermatology. It also involves an in-depth study of the functionality of chemistry, physics, and the health of hair. Trichology is becoming more and more known to many people today by hair loss experts.
There are specialists for all areas of the human body. A qualified Trichologist is that specialist for the hair and scalp who can identify and treat many forms of hair loss, hair shaft breakage and scalp disorders.
Hair is one of the body’s most metabolically-active tissues, often reflecting the first signs of internal disturbance. The hair and scalp are just as important as other areas of the body in the overall assessment of your health. All too often medical checkups don’t include hair and scalp examinations. By including this area in the overall checkup a number of medical conditions requiring attention from medical doctors could possibly be prevented or detected and treated much sooner. This science is very important and rapidly growing with an esteemed place in the health care and beauty industries.
