“I first became aware of trichology while working as a Hair Technician in a salon that specialised in making bespoke hairpieces for people with hair loss. Most of my clients were using my services as a last resort, knowing that their hair loss is irreversible. Talking to them and listening to their stories made me curious if indeed nothing could be done to prevent, slow down or reverse their conditions. I spoke to my colleagues and did some research of my own, and found out a lot of information about trichology and its methods of dealing with hair loss. It was then I realised that I am interested in doing something more than just “cover up” someones hair and scalp, I want to help people deal with their hair and scalp problems at earlier stages when less invasive and drastic measures are effective and possible. That is why I became a trichologist.“
Katya Barannikova, Associate of the Institute of Trichologists
Trichology is a branch of science that concentrates on the study and research of human hair structure and disorders, and the development of treatments and prophylactic methods for maintaining healthy hair and scalp.
Generally speaking, if your have concerns about your hair or scalp you should see a trichologist. Very often hair and scalp disorders are quite easily treatable and lead to full recovery or improve significantly if maintained properly.
In cases when medical solution is not possible, we have a wide range of cosmetic options.
If you experience any of the following, it is advisable for you to consult with a trichologist:

It is gently attached to your hair without tagging, pulling or breaking it, with plenty of room for your scalp to breathe and to be washed regularly. Re-application is needed every 4-6 weeks.
Our volumiser can be also combined with a few of very lightweight hair extensions, applied to your hair using medical grade wig tape.
