We believe that the consultation is the most important part of the appointment process for Afro hair loss and scalp conditions, and the foundation of everything else that follows.
Maybe you have had some concerns about your hair for a while but have felt too nervous to see anyone. Your stylist may have noticed hair loss that’s progressing or that there is still flaking after several shampoos. Or maybe you have tried every product you can think of to regrow your hair without success.
Most doctors are helpful but we have learnt that the knowledge of health professionals including ourselves is only as good as what we choose to learn and keep up to date with.
This has resulted in mixed outcomes for clients who visited their doctor before coming to us. You may have found your doctor’s advice helpful but the treatments prescribed didn’t work or dried your hair out. Maybe you don’t feel you were taken seriously or were told your hair style was the cause of your problem. A bit of guidance and advice from a professional hair consultation will help you get your hair back on track and go forward with clarity.
In our experience there are normally two or three different types of hair loss taking place in Afro hair at the same time. This is because of its unique shape and structure, the different styling processes used and health, diet and lifestyle factors. Each hair problem may affect the other and requires careful expert diagnoses to ensure that the right diagnosis and advice is given.
We offer private consultations on a one-to-one basis. Prior to your first appointment you will be asked to complete a hair history form. The information provided will allow us to make the most of your appointment time. All initial consultations lasts for up to 1 hour and 30 minutes where a detailed picture of your health, diet and lifestyle will be taken and your scalp and hair will be examined.
Following this, you will receive a diagnoses with an explanation of the factors that have caused or contributed to your hair condition along with a personalised treatment programme designed to meet your needs.
