Back when I started writing for Dermatology Times in 2005 I didn’t even know that people with medical hair problems should go see a dermatologist. I thought they dealt strictly with skin. Over the last 7 years, I have interviewed some of the world’s top hair specialists. With every article, such as this recent one on psychological problems and hair loss, I learned something new. Here Wilma Bergfeld, M.D., in practice at the Cleveland Clinic, breaks it down.
Over the course of the years I have also learned:
– the science behind curly hair and why chemical straightening and flat-ironing works
– why white hair won’t hold dye
– the amazing fact that so many men go bald and in what patterns
– all sort of things about hair health, ethnic hair, and hair conditions with crazy long names
–and many more things, not to mention nail issues, autoimmune disorders, and of course, skin
