Trichology is the branch of dermatology that specializes with the scientific study of the health of hair, scalp and its diseases. Trichologists are hair and scalp specialists (one type of skin specialist) who diagnose the causes of hair fall, hair breakage, hair thinning, miniaturization of hairs, diseases of the scalp, and treat according to cause. Trichology is a para-medical and scientific practice that has more than a century of history, study & research. The roots of trichology started around 1860 in London. The first trichology course was developed in 1974 at the University of Southern California. This course was created to give an overall understanding of hair and scalp health including hair loss, alopecia, and disease.
