Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Causes Of Hair Loss?

Hair loss can be an upsetting and stressful experience, but it is important to understand that it can often be caused by a number of metabolic imbalances in the body. Hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, COVID, trend dieting and malabsorption issues are just some of the causes. However, working with a certified trichologist can help you pinpoint the source of your problem and take steps to reverse it.
You will learn how to stabilize and regrow lost hairs in areas with viable follicles. Taking active control over your hair health is the key to feeling more confident mind, body, and spirit.

Is Hair Loss Permanent?

Hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent, but if left unmanaged, it can become so. There are some types, such as cicatricial alopecia, which is permanent from the start and results in degeneration of the follicles due to an immune system response. This form of alopecia can be reversed if it’s caught in the early stages. There are some forms of hair loss that are temporary and can become permanent if left unmanaged.
That’s why seeking help from a certified trichologist is so important! They can work with you to identify and address underlying causes and develop an action plan tailored to your individual needs. So don’t hesitate – take control of your hair and scalp health today!

At our virtual hair loss clinic, we prioritize ascertaining the root causes of each individual’s hair loss before recommending any natural remedies. We want to make sure that whatever solution we recommend is personalized to an individual’s needs and fits their lifestyle. None of our recovery plans are one-size-fits-all: instead, they are developed based on a thorough understanding of each person’s unique health needs and preferences.

What Type Of Hairstyles Should Be Worn With Alopecia?

If you have alopecia, it’s important to choose hairstyles that don’t cause friction or traction on the scalp. Wigs and certain types of hair extensions can help cover up hair loss while still looking attractive. Additionally, short hairstyles require less maintenance and can help give the illusion of fullness. When choosing a style, make sure it allows for proper scalp cleansing and avoid any styles that pull at the roots of your hair, such as braids, weaves,  or crochet styles.

Does Stress Cause Or Worsen Hair Loss?

Chronic stress can lead to a variety of metabolic imbalances, such as insomnia, anxiety and depression. Hair loss associated with stress is usually of the temporary form. Telogen effluvium and alopecia areata are two of the most common types of stress-induced hair loss. If the underlying cause of stress is addressed, the hair loss is often recoverable. It’s important to manage your stress levels in order to reduce the risk of hair loss.

Can Diet Play A Role In Preventing Or Reversing Hair Loss?

Your diet plays a crucial role in determining whether your hair growth cycle is on track or not. When you consume a nutrient-dense diet, it can aid in keeping your hair growth cycle healthy. On the other hand, a diet filled with processed foods can negatively impact your hair growth process as it fails to provide your body with adequate nutrients needed for good health. Maintaining a balanced and healthy diet can be beneficial for your overall health, including your hair growth cycle. So, whether you’re looking to grow out your hair or just want to have shiny, healthy locks, consider making some healthy changes to your diet.

How Do You Know If You Have A Serious Medical Problem Related To Hair Loss?

Whether  it’s a diagnosed medical condition or an unknown factor, hair loss can be a sign that something is not quite right. Your hair actually serves as a barometer of your health and can indicate changes or imbalances taking place within. By paying attention to your hair’s condition and any changes in hair growth or density , you can gain valuable insights into your overall health. Working with a trichologist is your next step to understanding alopecia, its causes, and its effects on your body.

How Effective Is Surgery As A Solution For Hair Loss?

If you’re considering a hair transplant to address alopecia, it’s important to keep in mind that this option may not be appropriate for everyone. For instance, individuals with Cicatricial alopecia, a form of scarring alopecia, may not be recommended for this procedure due to the potential risks involved. However, people with temporary forms of alopecia may be a more viable candidate, though there are still multiple factors to consider in order to achieve a successful surgery. Factors such as overall health and lifestyle play a key role in ensuring optimal vitamin and mineral uptake, among other important aspects of hair health. It’s important to consult with a hair transplant specialist and discuss any concerns or questions you may have to determine the best possible approach for your individual situation. Remember, a holistic approach to hair health is key to achieving and maintaining healthy hair growth.

How Can A Trichologist Support Me If A Dermatologist Can’t?

Trichologists focus on finding the underlying cause of a client’s hair loss, taking a holistic approach to hair and scalp health. Rather than just addressing the symptom of hair loss, trichologists aim to support their clients’ overall health and wellbeing through the use of natural and holistic therapies that help to restore balance to the body’s functions. In contrast, dermatologists rely more heavily on medications and treatments designed to stimulate the body’s functions that influence hair growth.

A trichologist’s approach to hair loss is to assess the whole person to uncover root causes and develop a personalized plan to promote healthy hair growth. Whereas, dermatologists may only consider the most obvious symptoms when addressing hair loss. Overall, working with a trichologist may be a more comprehensive approach to hair loss concerns as they take a more holistic approach towards uncovering and addressing the underlying causes of hair loss.
