Having been in clinical practice for over 20 years I have seen many thousands of people with hair and scalp problems, and in the vast majority of cases the disorders, particularly those of the scalp, have greatly improved as soon as the scalp is either washed more regularly, or better, more appropriate, products are used on it.

Acute telogen effluvium has an abrupt onset. The active shedding lasts 1 to 4 months and can lead to thinning of the hair over the entire scalp. The bitemporal areas may be most obviously thinned.

Dry Scalp:  When it comes to dandruff or flaking, the flakes are actually more likely to be oily than dry – 80% of flaky scalps are.
