HAIR & SCALP PROBLEMS
Seborrheic Dermatitis, sometimes referred to as dandruff, is a very common condition where dry skin flakes off the scalp. It can be an embarrassing condition, but it is harmless. It can also make your scalp itch, though that could also be caused by other conditions in your scalp like seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, or even a fungal infection on the scalp.
With alopecia areata, hair loss occurs in round patches and can be on the scalp or elsewhere on the body.
This occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles.
The hair may or may not regrow and may fall out again.
MALE AND FEMALE HAIR LOSS
We all lose some hairs on a daily basis, but if you notice excessive thinning or bald patches, you may need a professional opinion.
Stress, certain medical conditions, medications, giving birth, menopause, poor diet and nutrition, and even certain hair care and styles can cause hair loss. Hereditary hair loss is the most common type of hair loss for both men and women.
Come in so we can best assess what type of hair loss you have.
