What to Expect From Your Consultation
Your safe and secure online consultation provides you with the likely diagnosis causing your hair loss and scalp condition, giving you facts, knowledge and clarity. This diagnosis allows us to discuss a treatment plan that covers three areas - self-care, clinical care and medical care - where appropriate.
Self-care covers cosmetic care such as products, hair/scalp maintenance and supplements.
Clinical care covers specific treatments that can be delivered to your address or delivered in clinic.
Medical care covers referrals to our unique specialist healthcare network who can personalise your prescribed treatment.
We will save you time and money by navigating you across these areas, and as a neutral and professional advisor we always provide options of different brands. We can recommend a follow-on consultation, and/ or a genetic testing consultation for specific hair loss conditions which provides us with valuable data that allows for more effective tailored treatments.
The root cause for many hair loss and scalp health conditions can be hormonal imbalances, auto-immune conditions and/ or blood deficiencies. Some example conditions include:
Telogen effluvium – Excessive hair shedding
Androgenic alopecia – Male/Female pattern hair loss
Alopecia areata - Patchy hair loss
Seborrheic dermatitis – Commonly known as scalp dandruff
The latest evidence suggests that around a third of women experience hormonal hair loss at some time in their life, rising to two-thirds post-menopause. Hair loss occurs in around 45% of men in their forties, rising to 70% for over sixties. Over 4% of the population will develop scalp psoriasis in their life-time, and a higher percentage for general scalp conditions.
Many of these conditions can be triggered by things such as menopause, POI, PCOS, cancer treatments, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), genetics, malnutrition, mental health anxieties and infections.

Keep up the life changing work. In summary, Wil, Vicky and the wonderful team at Root Cause provide a first class service - they are approachable, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and very efficient - keep up the life changing work.
Highly recommend this business.
Wil explained things well, went into lots of details and gave ample opportunities to ask any questions I might have. Very quickly received a report after both appointments and was easily understood. Would highly recommend if you have any hair loss concerns as Wil certainly knows what he is talking about.
I cannot recommend Root Cause highly enough.
Wil immediately put me at ease with his kind, friendly manner - I was very nervous and felt upset to talk about my situation, but he quickly made me feel I was in a safe environment and I felt was comfortable to talk and explain my circumstances.
I thoroughly recommend Root Cause.
Wil put me at ease when discussing my scalp issues, a compassionate profesional. A consultation formatted step by step followed by a succinct report allowed me to understand my scalp health.
