How Important is a Healthy Scalp?

If you want to have healthy hair, you need to have a healthy scalp. There are many scalp disorders and most of the time they are caused by an underlying condition. Dandruff for example can be caused by a number of skin conditions including seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema. The white flakes of itchy, oily dead skin are just a symptom of what is really going on. Dandruff can range from mild to severe. Often simple life changes can eliminate the mild condition but the more severe require treatment. Scalp conditions also can cause hair loss. The presence of DHT, a bad body hormone builds up at the base of the hair follicle and will cut off blood supply and needed nutrients causing the hair follicle to eventually die. The important thing to understand here is that with proper diagnosis these disorders are treatable.

These days most salons offer a generic scalp treatment that is used to combat everything. This just does not make sense to me. If I had a doctor that prescribed the same treatment or therapy for all ailments I would be switching doctors. This is something that needs to be diagnosed properly and treated with products specifically designed for that disorder. I suggest you seek the assistance of a Certified Trichologist for diagnosis and treatment. Trichology is a para-medical segment of health care that specializes in scalp and hair disorders. A Certified Trichologist will give you an in depth analysis of your hair and scalp, identify your exact disorder and prescribe treatments specifically designed for your individual needs.

A Certified Trichologist is the first step towards a healthy scalp and a healthy head of hair.
