Who is the right person to see about my hair loss problem? Is it the Doctor? If not who?

Until very recently hair loss of any shape or form was regarded as a natural process to be endured. Your Doctor would be neither sympathetic nor understanding or helpful if you plucked up the courage to see him or her about your hair loss problem.

But things may be slowly changing. An increasing number of doctors realise that hair loss can have psychological consequences that significantly diminish quality of life, especially for both younger men and women alike, and they are becoming slightly more willing to take your hair loss problem more seriously than in the past.

If you are lucky enough to have an enlightened GP, by all means seek their advice – at the very least, you’ll get a referral to a reliable trichologist (although you’ll probably have to pay for any treatment you receive).
