Dr. Steele sees many patients experiencing brittle, fragile, dry or breaking hair that could be confused with hair loss/alopecia. While it’s not alopecia per se, the cosmetic implications of poor quality hair can be as significant as that of alopecia. Fortunately, in this scenario, the hair is growing from the scalp perfectly fine, which means that the hair follicles are intact and functional. That alone means that there is a foundation for building healthier, thicker, stronger hair from those follicles.
Brittle or fragile hair is a sign that things aren’t going right with hair growth—either because of internal factors or external damage. In any case, Dr. Steele is able to evaluate your hair to find the cause of your brittle or thin hair and create a plan to strengthen, lengthen and revitalize your hair.
