I Got A Scalp Test From A Certified Trichologist…

I attended the annual Girlfriends Expo event and the SoftSheen-Carson booth was the most attractive because there was a certified Trichologist conducting scalp test on anyone who wanted to know the state of their scalp or had scalp issues, that they wanted addressed. He is from Jamaica. I was so excited that I sat patiently waiting on my turn which was about an hour since four ladies were ahead of me. What impressed me the most was Karl Richmond meticulousness with each patron rather than trying to get as many people in and out of his chair.

Certified Hair Trichologist : Karl Richmond
Before he started the test I told him I was a blogger and if it was okay to record and take 
pictures of the process and he was very accommodating to allow me too. I just had to get a picture with us to show you guys.
Karl Richmond & I
He used his equipment on my crown and closer to the front of my head. In my crown he noticed thinning which are the single strands but said the more strands grouped together are better. Double strands are the preferred choice. From the picture below you can see alittle bit of product build up but it wasn't excessive or alarming. Please excuse the quality of these pics, I took them from his laptop screen.

My scalp
After the test he thoroughly explained to me what he saw from my hair and I paid close attention. Honestly, I was curious with what his results would find to see if it’s what I was experiencing.

Paying close attention
Karl said to me that my hair is porous and I would know when the rain is falling.  I asked him if I need to focus more on moisture and less protein and he looked at me in shock and said exactly, how did you know that. Knowledge is power guys. I did notice and I mentioned it here that after my relaxer that  I found my hair has been really dry which isn't normal for me. For the last three weeks I have been focusing on moisture but still adding abit of protein so I don’t lose the balance. He also said my strands were healthy but I was experiencing some thinning at my crown *screams*. My mom hair started to thin out at her crown and to this day that’s her problem area. I’m going to pay special attention to my crown area to regain its thickness. There was a form for us to fill out which had questions like: If you are relaxed, Texturized or natural, If you take vitamins, on medication, What brand relaxer you use, how often you shampoo e.t.c

The verdict
There was another SoftSheen-Carson professional guy who was trimming and styling your hair if you wanted and I opted out lol. Here is a young lady getting her hair trimmed and well as Dionne getting her scalp tested. This is the equipment used.

Equipment for scalp test
Don’t be alarmed or disgusted but this scalp you are about to see hasn't been washed in two weeks. There is clearly product buildup and tons of dandruff.  Here is also a sample of single, double and triple strands growing out of the hair follicle.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process and I’m currently editing the video for you guys to go up before the end of the week.

Have you ever had your scalp tested before and What were the results?


  1. This is really cool, I would love to get my scalp tested, I just may look into it, see if there is anyone in Trinidad that does it.

    1. I was most intrigued. If you do let me know how it goes.

  2. Oh wow I would love to get my scalp tested too! Must have been a very informative experience. I should shoe the 2 week no wash dandruff full scalp to people I know that go upto 4 weeks without washing their hair it may just be what they need to wash more regularly.

    1. This young lady didn't wash her hair, oil her scalp or Moisturized her hair for 2 weeks. Lol Lydz

  3. Oh snap. Why aren't these guys ever at state-side hair care events?!? Ha-ha! I usually try to make my straight hair last for 2 weeks---this is definitely discouragement!

    1. This young lady didn't wash her hair, oil her scalp or Moisturized her hair for 2 weeks. Our scalp needs nourishment and once you do that I think you will be fine with your 2 weeks.

  4. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing! I'd be very curious to see what my scalp looks like x

  5. Wow interesting! Would definitely be a servicei would love, and yes knowledge is power. P.s that 2 week unwashed scalp, can't believe this used to be me!

  6. Thanks so much for this article. I go 2 weeks without washing when I get my hair pressed and between styling sessions, I go 1 week without washing. I may stop that now.lol


    1. As I stated earlier it all depends on how you nourish your scalp. Do what's best for your hair.

  7. I've never had this done but it sounds interesting! I used to straighten my hair but I stopped doing so two years ago. There are moments when I miss the convenience of relaxing but my pocket has not lamented the cost savings!

  8. OMG I am so fascinated by this. I will definitely pay Dr. Richmond a visit when I am back home in Ja!! Thank you for sharing!
