Over the past two weeks I have had the opportunity to participate in two skin tests - scalp and facial skin.
Today I would like to tell you a little bit about the scalp examination, why it is worth participating in the study and what I learned.
I'll start with a scalp examination that I took part in See Bloggers. Although the queue to the Doctor was quite long, it was worth the wait.
Prior to the study, there was an interview: do I have any problems (e.g. dandruff), or do I notice something disturbing about my skin or hair.
I told you truthfully that two months ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and the only problem I am currently facing is excessive hair loss. I've never had too much hair problems. During adolescence I had dandruff from time to time, but I don't know what split ends are.
Probably this is because I do not dye my hair (only with henna khadi, or herbal paints. Recently I happened to reach for a drugstore oil-based paint, but I will not make this mistake again).
With the help of a special device, the doctor took several photos with my smartphone, and then began the diagnosis.
It turned out that the hair is in quite good condition, although there is a slight dandruff on the bulbs, and several hair was broken. You can even see a few baby hair;) Hair is quite thick (and I always thought I was thin!), Several hairs grow from one bulb.
Such an examination turns out to be very helpful in the case of scalp problems, which we experience e.g. dandruff or itching. It allows you to diagnose the ailment, thanks to which it is not treated in the dark, as in the case of weak dermatologists (which I unfortunately also hit).
In the next note I will tell you about the facial skin examination that took place at the Douglas Beauty Institute in Gdańsk.
