Introduction to Trichology, Roland Bleyer’s First Profession

Roland Bleyer began his career in trichology before entering the finance profession. Trichology is the branch of medicine concerned with the health of the hair and scalp. Trichologists are primarily involved in treating hair loss and scalp issues, although some also specialize in forensic hair analysis.

Trichologists undergo specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of hair conditions. They hold expertise in hair loss, itchy scalp, breaking hair, plus dry and oily hair or scalp. Not all trichologists are registered physicians, but many doctors specializing in hair treatments take supplementary trichology courses in order to sharpen their knowledge.

A visit to a trichologist often involves detailed hair analysis, which may involve an examination of the mineral content of the hair or an assessment of specific types of physical damage. Blood tests may also be requested in certain instances. Through these approaches, trichologists can identify pest, fungi, genetic issues, or other factors influencing hair or scalp conditions.

Trichologists employ a range of conventional and natural remedies to solve hair and scalp issues. When the problem can be easily resolved via natural means, the trichologist will provide the patient with the necessary remedies. Alternatively, the trichologist can identify the specific type of care required by the patient and refer him or her to the appropriate medical specialist.
