Scarring alopecia is a major clinical and public health challenge, not just in sub-Saharan Africa, but the world over. It is predominantly seen in people of colour and usually presents very late in the disease course when significant permanent hair loss has already occurred.
As a hair professional, you spend long durations of time with your clients and often act as a source of information and advice on health-related issues. Hairstylists are most likely to detect the earliest signs of hair and scalp damage and this programme can be beneficial for educating hairdressers about alopecia and scalp conditions, thus leading to early detection and referral of at-risk individuals.
As a hairstylist, you will learn the crucial skills essential to be able to provide services that are backed by scientific knowledge and evidence-based information, rather than the common non-validated information that’s available from unreliable and unsubstantiated sources. The hairstylists of the future should be well informed and should be able to keep up to date with the latest cutting-edge research.
