Alopecia currently affects over 80 million Americans, in various categories. This statistic does not include the International market. September is recognized as National Alopecia Areata Month. What is Alopecia? Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss, and may affect men, women, children, and even some pets. A board certified Trichologist is a specialist in Alopecia and scalp disorder maladies.
Your hair is acts as a barometer for imbalances/changes in your body. So do not think it is only external contributors, and external products are the culprits, seek a specialist. In addition, a microscopic consultation from a board certified Trichologist can confirm vital health information and health conditions.
