This week, telehealth concept, Root Cause Clinical, hosted their first ever online event – The Science of Hair Q&A for all your hair and scalp concerns.
The open Q&A allowed attendees to ask questions to Root Cause Clinical Expert Trichologist and Co-Founder, Wil Fleeson, and Advisory Board Member, Jacky Van Driel-Nguene regarding scalp concerns hair loss. Questions included the condition Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Cicatricial Alopecia and if the ingredients within many of the commonly known hair loss products and supplements, really work. As well as why Root Cause Clinical can be a beneficial tool to recommend in the salon for both the hairdresser and the client.
Jacky delved deep into the taboo subject of racial bias, discussing the importance that trichologists and hairdressers are able to treat clients equally and are knowledgeable on the different hair types (particularly in regards to curly hair from 2A to 4C). She discussed looking after these hair types and avoiding hair loss and scalp issues by using the appropriate deeply moisturising products and informing clients that should they need to, hairdressers/trichologists should advise clients to stop styling their hair in hairstyles such as braids, weaves and tight ponytails that can cause tension on the hair.
Commenting on the success of the event, Victoria Russell, Co-Founder of Root Cause Clinical said, “We had an amazing interest for our inaugural presentation for Root Cause Clinical and on joining the event, we were delighted to see a great number of attendees from hairdresser to hair loss professionals and clients from the UK and International. We received some fantastic questions and engagement throughout the event and some excellent feedback post-event from attendees who found the session insightful and who left the Zoom with invaluable knowledge from our Trichologists to take back to the salon. We can’t wait to host many more events like this in the future – stay tuned!”
Attendee of the event and Owner of SMART:EST 73, Steven Smart, said, “There is very little direct and constructive information about thinning and loss of hair within the industry generally. The experts on hand gave a great amount of detail and explanation which was a fantastic starting point on learning more about a delicate subject. This is an area of education for a vast majority of our industry, is very much needed. “
