I’m delighted to be joined on the show today by Dr Ingrid Wilson, Director of Crewe Hair and Skin Clinic which primarily helps people with hair loss, scalp problems and skin concerns. 

Having been a GP in the NHS for 20 years, Dr Wilson takes a holistic approach to hair and skin, and provides hair treatments in the clinic to help care for textured hair. 

She is one of the few trichologists in the country able to prescribe for hair loss conditions, and she enjoys collaborating with other trichologists from other professional backgrounds so that clients can access hair replacement systems, hairdressing and scalp micropigmentation from the clinic. 

Today we talked about:

  • The different types of hair loss
  • How Dr Ingrid assesses the root cause of hair loss
  • Nutritional considerations for healthy hair
  • The new tests that help determine what treatments are worthwhile
  • Supplements that may be useful in hair loss
  • Pharmaceutical options and other hair treatments
  • Greying and what could help
  • Answering some of your questions about hair products, oils and more

Summary

“Ballerinas will tend to lose their hair around the edges – so the front, around the ears and the back – so all those areas that have been pulled really tight.  So I suppose anyone that had a Croydon facelift in the 90’s will also have experienced that kind of hair loss too’
