Do I have alopecia? The question I often get asked by patients. Many people think of alopecia as a particular type of hair loss, usually that of a patchy loss which can go on to develop into total hair loss of the head, and sometimes the entire body.
This type of hair loss is actually called alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis, respectively. In fact, the word alopecia is the general term used for any type of hair loss, whether it be thinning, gradual, sudden, diffuse, temporary etc.
I started seeing Katrina in July 2020 to see if she could help with the severe damage that had been caused to my hair (or lack of hair) through cancer treatment. Katrina was so empathetic, professional and helpful she immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. She suggested I use an appropriate ointment twice daily along with treatments with her at her clinic. The improvement, so far, is amazing - I am absolutely over the moon. I wish I could fast forward another six months to see what my hair will look like then! I am so pleased to have found Katrina and have no hesitations in recommending Katrina to anyone who had problems with their hair.
Katrina is an excellent trichologist. She is warm, kind, approachable, knowledgeable, informative and generous with her time and an expertise. She has also chatted with my hairdresser to advise her reference my scalp treatments and condition, so that I get the best and healthiest outcomes in the treatments that my hairdresser offer. Katrina has always got the shampoos and conditioners I need in an efficient way, and that Katrina explains to me how they work verbally and also with a detailed written breakdown on the use of the treatments. She has also advised me on what to do when my child has a dry scalp and was very sweet and caring towards my child. Katrina has made a big difference to my scalp condition she has really helped me deal with it Physically and emotionally. I would recommend anyone to go to see Katrina for any scalp conditions.
“Katrina is a friendly yet professional face, who exudes knowledge and reassurance in abundance. She is very thorough and professional in everything she does, and she is always mindful and sensitive to what you might be feeling. She has helped me enormously and I would recommend her brilliant, discreet services to anybody. Her trichology knowledge is impressive and she is very reliable on the communication front. Thank you Katrina!”
