Ask away!: Not sure what you are asking. Hair follicles can be examined by doing a scalp biopsy. There is also a test called a "hair pull" or "trichogram" to help evaluate hair loss. A dermatologist may use either or both of these (or none) to help evaluate problems with the hair. If you have a specific question then perhaps you could submit it separately.
