How do you cure trichorrhexis nodosa?

Unfortunately it’s very difficult to say without knowing the underlying cause of your Trichorrhexis Nodosa. I can help you improve your hair growth but in order to cure the underlying condition I would need to examine your scalp, hair and blood.

If you suspect you have Trichorrhexis Nodosa you should make an appointment with a doctor and get refferred to a dermatologist who will be able to examine your scalp closely. Your doctor will be able to test your blood for known causes of Trchorrhexis Nodosa, such as hypothyroidism or an amino acid deficiency.

Aside from having a proper examination I can recommend following an exellent diet that promotes hair growth (such as the one I describe in the nutrition chapter of my eBook) and keeping your stress levels low.

If you only have mild Trichorrhexis Nodosa it may be caused by something simple such as overheating your hair (with curling tongs or straighteners for example) or damaging when brushing. If that’s the case, I’d recommend you read and follow the instructions in my article “How to End Split Ends” and switch to a gentle shampoo such as the one listed in this article: “10 Organic Shampoos that Do Not Contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate“.

In general, if no underlying condition is found, eating foods that feed the hair, keeping stress levels low, increasing blood circulation in the scalp and getting the scalp into the correct condition for hair growth will all help stop the Trichorrhexis Nodosa.

  1. I think I have trichorrhexis, its got progressively worse & worse over the last 2 years. My doctor referred me to 2 a dermatologist who said she’d got no idea what’s wrong. I’m am my wits end, I’ve got virtually no hair & what I’ve got is incredibly hard to keep under control, I comb out a weird scum stuff that appears on my scalp, its quite thick too. What do I do to get rid ? HELP. thank you.

    1. Hi Launna,

      It’s very difficult to know what the substance is exactly that you’re combing off your scalp. I would guess that it is dead skin cells. Did your dermatologist take a sample?

      It might be worth trying a Ketoconazole shampoo to see if that helps.

      I’d recommend not using any heat on your hair and not brushing your hair when it’s wet.

      I’d also recommend beginning an intense nutrient program for your hair, which can be found in my eBook. However I would try the Ketoconazole shampoo first to see if you can treat the ‘scum’ on your scalp. You may also find apple cider vinegar may help with this. I explain how to do an apple cider vinegar treatment in my eBook.

      Start of with the Ketoconazole shampoo and see if that helps. Get back to me with results and I’ll provide further recommendations.

      All the best,
