/  TricoItalia

TricoItalia – the Italian Association of Trichology is an association dedicated to Technicians, Biologists, Pharmacists, Nurses, Chemists, Hair Stylists without University degrees and Estheticians who work in the field of Trichology.

TricoItalia® has been the (registered) name for many years of the didactic-scientific sector of the Italian Society for Hair Science and Restoration (S.I.Tri) where “Enthusiasts without University degrees” and “Estheticians” in the field of Trichology could be members.

In January 2018 TricoItalia became a separate entity from S.I.Tri. and is now an independent association called:  Italian Association of Trichology, dedicated not only to doctors but also Biologists, Pharmacists, Nurses, Chemists, Hair Stylists, Enthusiasts without University degrees and Estheticians who work in the field of Trichology.


TricoItalia’s objectives are:

  • Provide members with a secure point of reference as well as technical and scientific support for their daily activities in the field.
  • Publish news updates current in Italy and worldwide in the field of trichology to keep members informed of the latest information and discoveries provided by other members, enthusiasts in the field and patients.
  • Inform and defend members and operators from misleading information and fraud in the field of trichology.
  • Promote advances in the field of “TRICHOLOGY” also through teaching.

TricoItalia aims to bring together all those involved in Trichology in Italy and to train and teach, through training courses and dedicated conferences, how to work in this field through using the specific skills without infringing upon the duties that are reserved for the Medical Trichologists.
