Welcome to Sussex Trichology. My name is Shuna Hammocks and I am a Consultant Trichologist. I want to talk about why hair is so important to us. Hair is the second most prolific dividing cell in the human body (after intestines) and psychologically one of the most important aspects of one’s appearance. Hair can totally make or break your day and if listening to this, I should imagine you are experiencing exactly that.
Both men and women of all ages seek my professional opinion and frequently ask “am I imagining this condition” or “all people lose hair as they age don’t they”? The answer to both of these questions is always “No”!
Due to the highly emotive nature of what I do, I feel my holistic and sensitive approach supports most people and reassures. When an individual takes the first step to discovering “why” their hair is behaving as it is. Many patients consult their GP or specialists before seeing me and frequently complain they don’t really feel “heard”. I think it most important to spend enough time with the individual to help them regain that sense of “control”.
Your concern becomes my concern and by the end of your hour consultation- You will not be aware of what the condition is but how we will treat it together. I regularly see people in so much distress about their hair or scalp condition that it has a devastating and profound effect on the quality of their life. If any of the points I’ve raised have struck a chord with you, then please don’t hesitate to contact me and I can help you.
