Trichology is the science that studies the diagnosis and treatment of problems of the hair, scalp and hair follicles, which lead to symptoms of dandruff, texture problems, hair loss and other serious conditions. In plain English, a Trichologist is a person who studies the hair and scalp and makes recommendations.
The name trichology stems from the Greek word 'tricos', which means 'hair' and the suffix 'ology', which means 'the study of'. The pathology treats the diseases that affect human hair whilst focusing on the process of regrowing hair.
