Fringe - All About Hair

This blog explores topics in 'Trichology' (the orthodox sciences of human hair). We welcome you either as an interested visitor or a prospective student seeking to study trichology to share your comments and experience. As the archives continue to accumulate, probably at some point they will become a useful reference for all. This hair loss forum may help you to grow hair too!

Androgenetic Hair loss in women

Ms.X is a middle aged lady, who had very good hair as a teenager. She even won Miss Beautiful Hair during her college days. After marriage she has put on some weight, though she cannot be called obese. Of late she has noticed that her scalp is becoming visible in the front. She has started noticing few hair strands in the bathtub as well. The length of her hair (which used to attract so much attention during younger days) has significantly reduced. She has noticed the same pattern in her mother as well, but she feels her mother started loosing hair much later in her life and it is OK for her to lose some now. She tried all the shampoos and hair loss solutions available in the market with little improvement. Her stress level has increased and it has started interfering with her day to day life. If you think I can substitute X with your name then please read the story here, otherwise search my 'Feather in the cap' series of articles for your story.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
