Many of us at this time of the year are making New Year promises to ourselves. Could these be looking after ourselves better, starting that gym membership or, as for many patients who see me, to finally address their hair loss or scalp conditions. I guess as with gaining weight, hair loss can gradually creep…
Unfortunately no, you can’t see any Trichologist on the NHS at present. Many patients I see, report that the GP has not been very helpful and if referring to a Dermatologist – you would be very lucky to find a specialist of this nature who had a “special interest” in hair loss and scalp conditions…
It started one patch of hair loss on the top of her head. Now she has more. Can you help my daughter?
My daughter is 27, and last Christmas lost her hair in one patch on the top of her head. This subsequently regret then again a couple of months ago at the back she developed more. I want to help her as has been seen by a doctor but has been unable to get answers or guidance. Thank you.
This answer to this question is difficult to be specific on Female Pattern Thinning as it depends on the hair type and the strength of inheritance.
I am dithered about my son’s recent hair loss. Can you help him to understand his situation and reduce the hair loss?
I have dithered for several weeks and now I may have run out of time. My son (21) is fearing he has hair loss – especially as my husband began losing his hair at around 17. We discussed your services and would like to book him a consultation as a gift as he would like to at least know what is going on.
I recently had my hair coloured at a salon, I told the stylist, I didn’t want any bleach highlights in my hair, only tint. After waiting 45 minutes, with colour on my hair, it was rinsed off. When I looked at my hair I could see, the ridges where the foils had been and after it had been dryed, I could feel kinks under the hair near the scalp, and it was very frizzy underneath.
Autumn is on its way, so it is a great time to remind you all of good hair care going into a new season.
I was addicted to fizzy water. Could there have been a link to my abnormal thyroid and hair thinning?
Reader’s Question My hair is thinning. My GP did a blood test to check my thyroid. It came back as borderline. I had a repeat blood test 6 weeks later and the results were normal again. The only thing that was different in my life before my hair started thinning was an addiction to fizzy water! I…

My 22-year old son is losing hair and it is seriously affecting his self-esteem. Do you think you may be able to help him?
My son who is 22, is losing his hair and it is seriously affecting his self esteem and confidence. He has always had lovely thick hair but is receding at the temples and the crown. He tried Regaine, which worked well for 6 months when he developed redness and weeping where he applied the foam. He stopped using it and obviously shed any hair he had regained. Do you think you may be able to help him?
