Diseases of hair

Trikhologiya ("the doctrine about hair" from Greek trichos – hair, logos – science) - represents the highly specialized section of dermatology which is engaged in studying of a structure, growth, diseases and protection of hair and a hairy part of the head. Allocation of a trikhologiya in separate branch of medical knowledge testifies to the importance of tasks which she is called to solve. Trikhologiya as independent science is still so young that the specialty "trichologist" is still rare in medical practice also today. However there are more and more people having problems with hair, prefer to address the professional trichologist.

The body of the person is covered by three types of hair: pushkovy (on a body), long (on the head, in armpits, on a pubis, at men on a face) and shchetinisty (eyelashes, eyebrows, hair in a nose and ears). First of all, they perform barrier function, protecting other bodies (eyes, the nasal courses, ears etc.) from penetration of an infection and foreign matters. Covering almost all body (except for lips, palms and soles of legs), indumentum keeps heat, protecting an organism from overcooling.

Special significance in appearance of the person was always attached to hair. On a hairstyle and length of hair it was possible to judge not only appeal of the man or woman, but even such social definitions as the public status, the held position, religion, a national identity, etc. Historical data confirm the uncommon importance of existence or lack of hair on the head, length and a form of a hairstyle, hair color for assessment of the person by society.

Relevance of this aspect not only is not lost, but also is even more obvious in modern society when external signs of physical health are associated with success and wellbeing in life. Healthy, brilliant, without symptoms of dandruff and fragility hair testify about excellent health. Baldness, a hair loss, dim color, dryness and fragility of hair, on the contrary, indicate the opposite.

Hair are not independent body, and represent a skin appendage, and their state, first of all, is in direct dependence on a condition of integuments. All processes happening in a human body are interconnected, and the slightest failure in immune, hormonal systems, violation of work of digestive tract, psychological problems affect appearance of skin and a condition of hair.

The trikhologiya having today the most advanced methods of diagnostics, prevention and treatment is designed to resist to the various manifestations of fatigue of hair, various pathologies leading to their partial or full loss.

The trichologist in definition of the diagnosis often faces a psychological problem of the patient which is either a cause of illness, or his investigation.

Perhaps, as in any other field of medicine, in a trikhologiya assessment of the hereditary factor influencing a condition of hair and possible development of this or that pathology is very high. In this regard treatment at the trichologist always especially individually, with selection of a medical technique, the most effective in each case.
