Abstract

Trichoscopy facilitates the diagnosis of various hair and scalp disorders and is often useful in predicting the disease course. However, to date, few studies describe the dermoscopic findings unique to Afro-textured hair. This article reviews what is currently known regarding trichoscopy and discusses its usefulness in this population.
