Trichology is the para-medical science of the hair, hair loss and associated scalp problems. It encompasses the study of the diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders.
Welcome to the new Hair Authority/International Trichology Congress (ITC) Trichology Hub.

The ITC was formed in 2017 as an education platform for professionals involved in ‘hair’. We realized the topic of Hair science is multi-disciplinary and we are best served when there is cross-talks and information between all aspects.
Trichologists, Hair restoration surgeons, Dermatologists, Hair Biologists, Cosmetic Chemists and Aestheticians all have parts to play in the conversation about hair, our aim has always been to be informative, interesting, and inclusive.
Hair and hair loss has always been a ‘hot topic’. It is emotional, complex, and often misinterpreted. To this end, the International Trichology Congress and International Hair Authority have joined forces to bring you top level information, opinions, insights from industry leaders and researchers.
Please bookmark this page and sign up to the Hair Authority Newsletter as it will have a designated Trichology section for all the latest news where we will share relevant articles and interviews and important medical and trichological news as well as where to find relevant education courses and CPD events throughout the world.
We welcome contributions from any individual, society or institution so please contact us with any ideas, stories, and events you believe are of interest to the wider trichological community.

The International Trichology Congress is an initiative by a group of Trichologists with the vision of making a world-leading educational and networking platform for specialists with an interest in hair and hair loss.
Our Goal is to bring Qualified Trichologists, Hair Restoration Surgeons, Dermatologists and other medical and related specialists with an interest in hair to come together. We will aim to share knowledge and expertise about the latest scientific breakthroughs and clinical practice applications, as well enhance the networking and business opportunities of all that attend.
The World Trichology Society is an organization dedicated to educating, supporting and promoting trichologists worldwide. It was first formed to help the modern trichologist become better equipped to deal with the continued evolvement of the field.
The Society works to achieve these goals by promoting the science of Trichology and educating future Trichologists to exacting standards.It supports its members by helping them stay up-to-date with the latest research, and so enhancing the care of people who suffer from hair loss.
