There are differences in loss of hair in women and men. Post menopausal women can suffer a similar form of loss of hair as men known as female pattern baldness but it is usually slower than in men and less extensive. Younger women are more likely to suffer Chronic Telogen Effluvium a diffuse loss of hair you can read about this on our hair loss in women page. Hair loss for men is usually a genetic problem although a small number of men may also suffer acute or Chronic Telogen Effluvium.

Deborah has been my personal Trichologist and Hairdresser since February 2014. She is a highly professional, proficient and personable expert. I would highly recommend her.
After continuing to loose my hair every few months, I went to see Deborah. She was very caring and understanding , Deborah explained the reasons why and diagnosed a diffuse loss. I was given supplements which has helped enormously.
If you need a trichologist for any scalp or hair problems this lady is the one to see. I had hair loss problems which were worrying the life out of me and on my visit to Deborah she is not only a lovely but knew straight away how to help me and she did.The first thing she did was listen and take a full case history. She then examined my hair thoroughly including magnification. I was then sent off for unusual blood tests. Once, a thorough investigation had been made and she had received the blood results she then made a diagnosis and put me on an appropriate course of tablets & treatment that has been scientifically proven to be successful. Having been a client of Deborah since 2014 it is with great assurance that I can say she is easily one of the most knowledgable, helpful and careful trichologists in her field. In all, I am very impressed by the whole service. I would fully recommend anyone suffering hair loss of any type to make an appointment. The only thing you have to lose by not doing so… is more hair!
