healthy hair


by Nicola Hobbs


Our hair is more than just a cover for our head. We use it to hide behind, as a security blanket, to attract attention and to flirt, to present our individuality and to create our identity. So what happens when every day is a bad hair day?


S


huna Hammocks is bringing Trichology to Mid Sussex to get to the root of our hair and scalp troubles. “I understand


how hair has psychological importance, how it impacts on our quality of life and how the stress of having hair and scalp problems can affect your confidence and self-esteem,” says Shuna, owner of Sussex Trichology. Trichology is the scientific


study of the health of the hair and scalp. It combines physiology, nutrition and cosmetic understandings to diagnose and treat problems such as hair loss and damage, and all scalp problems. “Trichology runs in my family so I have always had a passion for healthy hair,” says Shuna. “My experience of Trichology in London showed me how much of a difference our service can make to people’s lives. I wanted to bring those life- enhancing services to Mid Sussex.” Shuna, who is also a trained phlebotomist, started working with the world renowned and highly respected Philip Kingsley in 1999, initially as a Trichotherapist while working in the laboratory formulating products. “There are lots of products on the market which con buyers into thinking their hair will miraculously grow. I wanted to ensure that the products I was using were effective,” explains Shuna. She is now a Consultant


Trichologist after training and qualifying with The Institute of Trichologists in 2005. Extending her experience further, she qualified with The Royal Society for Public Health in 2007 and became a member of The Society of Cosmetic Scientists in 2008. She is also a member of The Royal Society of Medicine. Guaranteeing the credibility of her practice is a priority for Shuna and she continues her professional development to update her knowledge so her patients can get the best advice and treatment. “It is hugely rewarding when patients come back with a smile on their face saying they wish they’d come to see me before,” says Shuna. “So many people battle with hair and scalp problems because they don’t know about Trichology. I want to raise awareness of the positive effect it can have on people’s hair and their lives.” A trichological consultation

starts with a self-referral or doctor’s recommendation. Shuna then has an in-depth discussion about medical history, nutrition, hair care and lifestyle, carries out a gentle examination of the scalp and hair, and possibly advise a blood test to identify any deficiencies. She can then provide a diagnosis and begin treatment which might involve massages, steamers and prescribed products. At the end of the treatment, Shuna says, “I always ensure that each patient leaves with a complete understanding of their diagnosis and treatment, so they can enjoy their healthy hair to the full.” ■
