Meet Our Trichologist

At STRAAND, we’re self-confessed scalp nerds. We’re passionate about the science behind the scalp and how it can be the difference between luscious and lacklustre hair. 

We're proud to partner with one of Australia's top trichologists, Chelcey Sallinger, who is equally obsessed with helping people achieve their best hair by tackling their scalp health head-on.

But first...

What is a Trichologist?

Trichology is the specialty dealing with problems of the hair and scalp; hair loss, baldness, alopecia, scaling, itching, hair breakage, hair damage, and dryness or oiliness of the hair or scalp. Trichology covers the medical and nutritional areas that relate to hair and scalp problems.

Essentially, a Trichologist is to hair and scalps like a Dermatologist is to skin.
