Indian hair and scalp are unique and require special care to maintain health and beauty. With the right information and techniques, you can achieve luscious and strong Indian hair that is the envy of others. That’s why we’ve turned to the experts - trichologists - for their insight and advice on tips for healthy hair and scalp.

Trichologists specialize in diagnosing and treating hair and scalp conditions. They deeply understand the underlying causes of hair problems and offer effective solutions to maintain healthy hair. Whether you have straight, curly, or wavy hair or suffer from hair problems like hair fall, dandruff, or dryness, in this blog post, we’ll delve into the hair care tips and recommendations of trichologists for caring for Indian hair and scalp.

Most Common Hair Issues

Indians frequently struggle with hair loss, dandruff, split ends, and hair thinning. Let’s look at the reasons behind each of these hair issues.

  1. Hair Fall
  2. The majority of Indians experience hair fall frequently. Stress, hormone imbalances, poor diet, and environmental factors like pollution are potential reasons for hair loss. Furthermore, tight hairstyles, chemical treatments, and excessive use of hair styling equipment might result in hair loss.

  3. Dandruff
  4. Dandruff is a common scalp condition caused by the overgrowth of yeast on the scalp. It leads to an itchy and flaky scalp, which may cause hair fall in severe cases. Several factors, including poor hygiene, oily scalp, and hormonal imbalances, cause dandruff.

  5. Split Ends
  6. The hair cuticle damage leads to split ends. Split ends can be brought on by overbrushing, harsh chemicals in hair products, heat style, and environmental factors, including sun exposure. Damaged hair cuticles cause the hair shaft to split, making the hair dry, brittle, and more likely to break.

  7. Hair Thinning
  8. Both men and women commonly experience hair thinning. Several things, such as heredity, hormone problems, inadequate nutrition, and environmental factors, bring it on. Natural ageing and medical diseases like alopecia can both cause hair thinning.

    For the right treatment to be given, it is imperative to comprehend the underlying reasons for these hair problems. Hair problems may occasionally result from a mix of causes. A trichologist can offer specialized treatment strategies to enhance the health of your scalp and hair while identifying the underlying causes of hair problems.

    Maintaining a healthy scalp and hair is essential to avoiding hair problems. Hair can be kept healthy by maintaining good scalp hygiene, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding harsh hair treatments. To identify and cure the root of your hair problem, see a trichologist if you are experiencing any hair problems.

Tips to Take Care of Scalp and Hair

You must properly care for your scalp and hair to maintain healthy, beautiful hair. The following advice can help you maintain healthy hair and skin:

  1. Maintain Proper Scalp Hygiene
  2. Correct scalp care is necessary for healthy hair. Wash your hair frequently with a gentle shampoo to get sweat, oil, and filth off your scalp. Avoid washing your hair in hot water to prevent damage and scalp drying. Massage your scalp gently with shampoo to improve blood flow and promote healthy hair regrowth.

  3. Use a Suitable Shampoo
  4. Pick a shampoo appropriate for your hair’s texture and condition. Use a clarifying shampoo to thoroughly clean your oily scalp and remove any extra oil. Use a moisturizing shampoo if you have dry or damaged hair or scalp.

  5. Condition Your Hair
  6. Use a conditioner made for your hair type after shampooing. Before giving it a rinse, let it sit for a bit for better results.

  7. Avoid Harsh Chemical Treatments
  8. Harsh chemical procedures like colouring, perming, and straightening can harm your hair’s cuticles, causing dryness, breakage, and hair loss. For these treatments, use soft, natural, or organic hair products.

  9. Protect Your Hair From Heat
  10. Blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners damage your hair’s cuticles, resulting in split ends and hair thinning. Use these instruments with caution and in frigid areas. Spray on a heat protectant to lessen heat damage.

  11. Eat a Balanced Diet
  12. Healthy hair growth requires a vitamin, mineral, and protein diet. To encourage good hair growth, include foods like eggs, almonds, seafood, leafy greens, and fruits.

  13. Remain Hydrated.
  14. Drink enough water each day to maintain your scalp and hair healthy. Water moisturizes the body and guards against dryness and degeneration of the hair and scalp. Moreover, it helps the body’s detoxification process.

  15. Speak with a Trichologist
  16. See a trichologist if you routinely experience hair issues like hair loss, dandruff, or thinning hair. A trichologist can identify the root of your hair problem and provide personalized hair care treatment options to help your scalp and hair.

How Can a Trichologist Help Diagnose and Treat Specific Hair and Scalp Issues?

How Can a Trichologist Help Diagnose

A trichologist is a hair specialist doctor specializing in hair and scalp treatment and can recognize and address specific hair and scalp problems. Trichologists diagnose and treat a wide range of hair and scalp-related problems using their in-depth knowledge of the structure and function.

Hair and scalp disorders can be diagnosed and treated with help from a trichologist:

  1. Diagnosis Tests
  2. Trichologists employ a range of diagnostic techniques to identify hair and scalp issues. Blood tests and microscopic inspections of hair and scalp samples can all be used to perform these tests. Trichologists use these tests to identify the cause of the issue and suggest a workable solution.

  3. Customized Treatment Plans
  4. A trichologist develops a customized hair regrowth treatment plan after identifying the underlying causes of hair and scalp issues. The hair treatment plan may include medication, topical treatments, hair care tips, and alterations to one’s way of life. Trichologists may advise dietary changes, stress-reduction techniques, and other lifestyle modifications as part of an all-encompassing approach to hair and scalp health.

  5. Hair Transplants
  6. Trichologists may advise hair transplants in cases of extreme hair loss. To do a hair transplant, hair follicles from a donor area are removed and transplanted to the areas of the scalp that are bald or thinning. Modern methods, such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation, are used by trichologists to perform hair transplants.

  7. Hair Restoration Therapies
  8. Trichologists use various hair restoration techniques to stimulate growth and improve scalp health. Low-Level Laser Therapy is an example of this procedure (LLLT). You can address many scalp and hair issues with these non-invasive procedures.

  9. Hair Extensions
  10. Hair extensions are cosmetic items that can lengthen, volumize, or thicken natural hair. These extensions can be made of real or synthetic hair and come in various designs, hues, and textures to match the wearer’s hair.


Trichologists are expert hair doctors who can identify and treat issues with the hair and scalp. After performing several tests to identify the underlying causes of hair and scalp problems, they provide treatment programs to enhance hair and scalp health. Trichologists use contemporary treatments such as hair transplants, hair restoration therapies, and laser therapy to restore the health and appearance of the scalp and hair. Our team of skilled trichologists at the AHS hair clinic can provide individualized care and treatment if you have hair problems. If you want the hair of your dreams, reserve a time slot today.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
