A tri­chol­o­gist pro is in to an­swer all your ques­tions

hair loss? Dan­druff? Not sexy con­di­tions, but a re­al­ity for many women. to help you get your bounce – and black shirts – back, tri­chol­o­gist treve­nen Bam an­swers your scalp-sav­ing ques­tions.

Car­di­ol­o­gists know ev­ery­thing about the heart. Neu­rol­o­gists are experts on the brain. and when it comes to shed­ding light on the se­crets of your scalp and hair, no one does it bet­ter than a tri­chol­o­gist. treve­nen Bam from the cape town tri­chol­ogy cen­tre is one such ex­pert, spe­cial­is­ing in scalp and hair prob­lems – think hair loss, bald­ness and scal­ing is­sues, like dan­druff – and their non-med­i­cal treat­ment. read on for ev­ery­thing you need to know about the sci­ence of keep­ing your fol­li­cles healthy and flake-free.

1 “What prob­lems do you see the most?”

Ex­ces­sive hair loss, thin­ning and break­ing hair, patches of bald­ness, scal­ing con­cerns – ei­ther in sec­tions or over the en­tire scalp – and ex­ces­sive oili­ness or itch­ing of the scalp.

2 “are We do­ing some­thing Wrong if We ex­pe­ri­ence those is­sues?”

Pos­si­bly. Not us­ing the right prod­ucts is the big­gest mis­take women make, so in­vest in a qual­ity sham­poo, con­di­tioner and treat­ment. And never skimp on a heat-pro­tect­ing spray when us­ing a hairdryer or flat­iron – with­out it, your hair is left vul­ner­a­ble.

3 “Why is a healthy scalp im­por­tant?”

It pro­vides the foun­da­tion for healthy hair. Peo­ple tend to fo­cus a lot on their hair, which is OK, but what’s not OK is for­get­ting that your scalp is what truly needs the at­ten­tion. With­out a healthy scalp, you’ll have is­sues with hair growth and health.
