I regularly receive inquiries about teenage hair loss. Anxious parents often tell me that their children are suffering from hair loss and ask me if puberty is causing hair loss.
My first but very brief TV appearance on BBC South East Today last week! I thought some of the hair loss patients would be interested to see further psychology surrounding Alopecia Areata is being discussed on social media. I would also like to thank Jade Jarvis for starting the social awareness.
I am very stressed that my hair is thinning at the front. Do you offer any hair loss treatment for my condition?
I am 37 years old. Within the last few months, I noticed my scalp is visible at the front, like a see-through effect. My hair seems thinner around the affected area. I had a blood test which appeared to be ok other than that my doctor dismissed it. Family members have always had good thick enduring hair, I’ve always had thick hair, needless to say, I’m very distressed and a bit paranoid about it.
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.
