Harley Street Hair Clinic has launched what it bills as the world’s first ever hair-tracking app.
Hair Track enables people to photograph their hair from three different perspectives – front, top and sides – and then upload to a timeline so they can scroll through a gallery and get a holistic view of how their hair is changing.
Another function, ‘managed by real people rather than artificial intelligence’, enables people to speak directly with a consultant about hair loss concerns.
They can talk via the app or set up a video or in person consultation, to discuss the best course of treatment.
Those who go on to have a follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplant or other treatment can then also log their hair growth success and manage their aftercare plan.
This includes scheduling appointments, being able to set notifications and reminders for aftercare treatment and being able to speak to doctors with any follow up questions.
New Harley Street Hair Clinic research found 76% of people who have little or no hair loss are worried they will lose it in the future. Sixty-eight per cent in the UK were experiencing some form of hair loss and 24% felt they had no one they can talk to about their concerns.
Hair Track app is available via the App Store for Apple users, and Google Play Store for Android users.
