We get asked a lot of questions here at the SRS Hair Clinic. You may even have a few of your own. We’ve created a blog series around the things people most frequently ask us about, which will hopefully answer any questions you may have too.

What is a Trichologist?
A trichologist is someone who provides advice on the hair and scalp, including hair care tips and how to look after the general health of your hair.

It’s important to note, however, that a trichologist is not usually a medical practitioner, and is unable to prescribe medicine or diagnose a condition relating to someone’s hair and scalp. They may also only have undergone very basic training, which means the term ‘trichologist’ can often be misleading.

How is SRS Clinic different?
At the SRS Hair Clinic, we do things quite differently. Our training and expertise extend well beyond that of a trichologist.

All of our hair specialists have undergone a rigorous training programme and are specialised to provide professional advice and the best available solution for all hair types. By accurately diagnosing an individual’s specific hair and scalp conditions, we’re able to form a comprehensive diagnosis to successfully treat hair loss. Our expertise extends to advice about receding hairlines, general thinning, hereditary hair loss and even more severe cases of hair loss, such as alopecia areata (patchy hair loss).

We’re also experienced in providing expert advice about hair loss due to chemical burns or chemotherapy-induced hair loss.
