 Stop Your Hair Loss, Regain Your Confidence

bobbyspencechannel9-pt1Currently hair loss affects over 30 million women and 50 million men and women of all ages. Natural hair loss is considered to be in the range of 50-100 hairs per day. Unfortunately, by the time a person realizes the are experiencing abnormal hair loss they have already lost at least 50% of hair density. Hair is the fastest growing tissue of the body, made up of proteins called keratins. Every strand of hair is made up of three layers: the inner layer or medulla (only present in thick hairs); the middle layer or cortex, which determines the strength, texture, and color of hair; and the cuticle, which protects the cortex. Hair grows from roots, which are enclosed in follicles. Below this is a layer of skin called the dermal papilla, which is fed by the bloodstream carrying nourishment vital to the growth of hair. Only the roots of hair are actually alive, while the visible part of hair is dead tissue, and therefore unable to heal itself. It is vital then to take care of the scalp and body in order to perpetuate hair growth and maintenance.

What is Trichology ?

bobbyspencetrichologyvideoTrichology is the specialized science of the structure, function and diseases of the human hair. Clinical Trichology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the human hair and scalp.  The medical terminology for hair loss is alopecia. There are many reasons why a person will begin to experience hair loss. The cause may be an inherited condition, hormonal, nutritional, physiological, autoimmune, psychological, or environmental, the taking of certain medication, or any combination of these.

Some hair loss problems may be temporary and self-correcting, while others are corrected with nutritional/hormonal interventions. Conditions such as genetic thinning can be stabilized but not cured while other conditions can cause permanent hair loss due to follicle destruction. Simply put, the skill, training and experience of your specialist is paramount in identifying the nature of your problem.
