What is Trichology?

Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp and is a Para-medical area of health care that embraces both naturopathic & western medicine, endocrinology and dermatology.

A qualified Trichologist has studied & successfully completed a recognised Trichology Education Program. Trichologists identify and treat all forms of hair loss, hair shaft breakage, scalp disorders, and the scalp.

Why consult a Trichologist?

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, the actions of a third party, or any combination of these.

Some hair loss problems may be temporary and self-correcting whilst others are corrected with nutritional/hormonal interventions. Conditions such as genetic thinning can be stabilised but not cured – whilst others cause permanent hair loss due to follicle destruction.

Peter Elchaar , a qualified Trichologist, has been practising Trichology since 1997 and brings his experience and knowledge to Pure Hair Pure Body.
