Trichologists do not only treat hair loss and scalp conditions but at Sussex Trichology we also see all manner of hair breakage that can occur for many reasons but is nearly always caused by mechanical damage, i.e. for external reasons.
Over use of heat styling aids: hair dressers, straightening irons, curlers. Also aggressive combing or brushing of the hair. We advise that bristle brushes are not used as these can both scratch the scalp and cause the hair shaft to split and break.
