Association’s Purpose

The Italian Society of Hair Science and Restoration (Società Italiana di Tricologia) has been established as a non-profit Scientific Medical Association with no political association whose purpose is to establish Trichology as a Scientific Branch in the Medical field as well as in the field of Humanistic Culture. We are the largest European Association of Trichology.

Our Mission

The objectives of the Italian Society of Hair Science and Restoration are to keep our users, operators and doctors informed and to defend them from misleading information and fraud in the field of trichology.

We aim to do this through continually developing initiatives, primarily these below:

  • Promote scientific research of the pathologies and physiology of hair, body hair and scalp.
  • Promote progress in the the field of trichology through education.
  • Define reference protocols for research, clinics and labs, as well for therapy for hair loss and diseases of the scalp.
  • Verify the efficacy and rationale of trichological therapies proposed by the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
  • Verify the quality, rationale and harmlessness of products offered by the trichologic-cosmetic industry.
  • Seek coordination between the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical-cosmetic industry to obtain a scientific rationale for the sector as a whole.
  • Compare and contrast the scientific activities regarding trichology of Associations that are culturally similar.
  • Provide members with a true point of reference and scientific support in their daily activities.
  • Publish current scientific findings made in the field of trichology in Italy and other parts of the world so as to keep Members, Patients and others interested in the field up to date with the latest news.
  • Keep Members, Patients and Society at large aware of fraudulent information within the trichology sector.

The Italian Society of Hair Science and Restoration is exclusively financed through membership fees and journal subscriptions.

Our journals and website do not include publicity or information for which we have been “paid for” or that has been “inspired” by pharmaceutical or cosmetic companies nor are we associated with any political or financial groups.

Our work and articles can be reproduced and are available to all as long as they are attributed to the author and are not used for commercial or publicity purposes.
