Hair Science: An Advanced Microscopic Analysis of Afro-Textured Hair

Have you ever seen what hair looks like under a microscope? Neither had I, but it is pretty exciting to see how your coily hair strands look from a microscopic view. In the video below, YouTuber Marquetta Breslin visits a Healthy Hair Clinic in Houston, Texas where a certified Trichologist does an advanced hair analysis of her natural strands.

Trichology is a branch of dermatology that specializes in the study of the hair and scalp. The trichologist from the video referred to as "Ms. Jackie" can recognize several things about the condition and texture of the client's hair by viewing it under a special hand-held microscope.

The advanced hair analysis includes an examination and full review of whether the hair is considered to be thin or dense, if there are any split ends, damaged hair, broken strands, product buildup, scalp infections, damage to the scalp, and more. It's a pretty interesting analysis and a whole new way to look at the integrity of your natural tresses.

What do you guys think? Would you see a trichologist for an advanced hair analysis? Do you think a hair analysis is necessary for persons who aren't suffering from any hair or scalp issues or diseases?
