Sebum

  • A natural oil constantly produced by your sebaceous glands (small oil-producing glands present on the skin).

  • The function of sebum is to lubricate the skin and protect against friction.  

  • The over production of sebum can cause scalp issues.

  • If left untreated can lead to build-up, follicle damage, and hair loss.

Contact Dermatitis

  • This is a response on your scalp that is caused by a substance you are exposed to.

  • Irritates your skin (scalp) and triggers a reaction.

The word “Trichology” comes from the Greek word, ‘Trikhos’ which means ‘hair’. Thichology is the branch of hair care that deals with the science of the hair and scalp.

 

A Trichologist is a “hair and scalp specialist” who is able to assess the causes of a hair or scalp problem and advise their client the best type of treatments for these problems.
