What is Trichology
Trichology is the study of scalp and hair and has been practiced in the United Kingdom and Europe since the early 19th century. Trichology was first recognized as a para-medical or non-physician discipline in Britain in 1902.
Now nearly a century later, trichology and its many benefits are recognized in the United States. Through it, we better determine the causes of hair fallout, hair breakage and hair thinning, as well as scalp conditions such as oily hair, scalp itch and dandruff.
