A History of Trichology

The Institute of Trichologists was founded in the UK by a group of hair professional and medical doctors 102 years ago. The Trichology study program was subsequently formatted and predominately involves intensive study of chemistry, biology, anatomy and physics.

Trichology was taken from the Greek word "tricho" that means quite simply "hair". Trichology is a paramedical field as trichologists may liaise with medical practitioners and other health professionals when a particular hair problem is maybe a symptom of an underlying medical problem. Trichologists are trained to spot when an underlying medical condition could be present through the diagnosis of varying forms of hair loss and can recommend specific blood tests accordingly.

The Institute remains highly regarded as the UK's examining body for all trainee trichologists and governing body of all qualified Trichologists. Trichologists trained and registered by the Institute are recognised by the initials A.I.T after qualifying initially and M.I.T after working appropriately as a clinical trichologist for at least three years. All qualified trichologists adhere to professional ethics as laid out by the Institute.

It is recommended that all sufferers of hair loss, baldness, psoriasis or itchy problematic scalp conditions have a consultation with a fully trained trichologist consultant who is Institute registered. This means a consultant who has been fully trained with The Institute of Trichologists.
