Trichology with Andrea Clark

Introducing Andrea Clark our certified visiting consultant Trichologist -  Andrea is a hair and scalp specialist and a qualified member of the International Association of Trichologists
 

A Trichologists approach is to holistically investigate the underlying causes of hair loss and scalp problems for both men and women. This involves asking questions, taking into account lifestyle, medical history , diet and personal wellbeing in order to identify and recommend a course of treatment or lifestyle changes that are designed to address the hair loss issue.  The hair and scalp are also examined to identify symptoms of scalp problems and signs of hair loss. 

Often there are a combination of issues to address and Andrea will work with your doctor, other specialists and with your Glow hairstylist to ensure your scalp and hair is getting the best treatment and so that further hair loss is minimised.
