Up to 50% of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss by the time they reach 50. And for many, hair loss will occur far earlier, whilst they are in their 20s, 30s or even late teens.
There are various reasons to get a consultation with a trichologist. From hair loss, hair texture problems or scalp issues, it is always best to find out what condition you may have. Hair is one of the body’s most active metabolically active tissues and it often reflects the first signals of internal disturbance.
To diagnose a trichology related issue, the best option is to visit the Wimpole Clinic and get a physical examination in order to look at the underlying skin and patterns.

Pityriasis Amiantacea is an eczematous condition in which an excessive scaling of the scalp occurs.
