Hair loss is common and can be very distressing.
No one likes to lose their hair and alopecia (the medical term for this) can be worrying. There are a number of causes for this problem, ranging from poor scalp health, nutritional problems and hormone related causes through to inflammatory scarring problems.
Professor Jolliffe has a special interest in alopecia and her expertise has been recognised across the world. She will take a very detailed medical history from you to enable her to understand why you may be losing your hair and will examine you carefully using a special magnifying device called a dermatoscope.
In the majority of circumstances a diagnosis can be made and the hair loss halted and sometimes reversed, particularly if the condition has been treated early.
