Frequent asked questions
Can my hairdresser help with my hair or scalp problem?
That is difficult to answer as it would depend on the nature of the problem. Trichologists study and understand the biology and chemistry of the hair and scalp at a much greater level then hairdressers. Trichologists treat hair and scalp problems such as hair loss, psoriasis of the scalp, itching, scaling, severe dandruff and more. They also have access to treatments that for conditions that hairdressers may not be qualified to advise on nor permitted to sell.
Why is my nearest hair and scalp clinic so far away?
Trichology clinics and hair loss treatment centres are privately run business enterprises (ie not run by the NHS). They are therefore located wherever the business owner considers it financially viable to run their business.
Is it possible to get the trichologist to visit me?
The clinic environment is home to specialist technology, equipment and preparations which make home treatment visits very unlikely.
Some trichologists offer an initial home consultation though these are a minority. It is generally more expensive to have a home visit. If clinical treatments are recommended as the result of your consultation rather than home treatment products you would then need to travel to a clinic.
Do I have to visit my nearest hair loss clinic presented in the search?
No. for your convenience the list of results from your search is ordered by increasing distance from the location you enter in the hair clinic finder search. You may contact any in the list or none at all.
The hair clinic finder is an impartial service that never recommends one clinic over another. We are not affiliated with any of the clinics listed or any of the organisations mentioned on this website.
Is my search anonymous?
Yes. Your search is absolutely anonymous. We won't know who or where you are when you use the hair clinic finder search tool and therefore cannot record your details.
