So far only one third of persons with cosmetic hair problems consult dermatologist, often after unsuccessful consulting of coiffeur or apothecaries. Dermatologists rarely are assessed from this group as a competent contact person. However dermatologists should acquaint oneself with examination techniques of hair shaft and scalp (clinical examination, hair shaft microscopy, dermoscopy) and be informed of dermocosmetic products to be able to advise their patients in terms of appropriate hair care. Hair cosmetics play an important role to improve quality and beauty of hair as well as to support medical treatment of hair- and scalp-disorders.
