The Hair Research Society of India was started 9 years ago at Chennai, India with the aims of gaining and disseminating the knowledge of hair with the transformation of the same into safe and ethical practices in order to abolish quackery and promote science.

The Hair Research Society of India reached a milestone in the journey of academic pursuit with the launch of International Journal of Trichology, the world's first and only dedicated peer-reviewed journal for hair in June 2009 which is now indexed with PubMed gaining a good impact factor.

Untiring in its efforts to equip every Dermatologist with trichological tools, the hair research society of India conducted the first International congress of Trichology with the theme "Dermatologist, the True Trichologist" which was a grand success with the participation Dermatologists and hair Biologists from all over the world.

The second International congress of Trichology with the theme "To Abolish Quackery in Dermatology" was conducted in September 2012, again with a tremendous success.

Two years have passed quickly, and it is once more time to roll out the red carpet inviting all of you to the third International congress on the trichology to be held in the palace hotel of Chennai, The Leela.

The field of trichology is advancing rapidly and keeping pace with the new discoveries, particularly in basic sciences, new devices and techniques, we need to hear from researchers to update us in recent advances. With this in mind we have invited Dermato-Trichologists and Hair Biologists who are carrying out original research in different aspects of hair disorders. In other words, we are transferring technology and latest information to benefit the younger generation of Dermato-Trichologists in our country.

The hair research society of India was the first to establish the fact that the Dermatologist is the True Trichologist. This slogan is also the scientific armor with which the Dermatologist can protect the innocent hair patients from the commercial clutches of quackery that forcefully spreads follies by viral marketing.

Established and ever growing evidences of inter disciplinary bonding of Trichology with Dermatology, Endocrinology, Immunology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, psychiatry, surgery and every specialty of medicine and surgery anchors the physician in every Dermatologist to play a pivotal role in diagnosing and treating hair disorders positively and passionately. The quintessential Dermatologist practicing ethical trichology should therefore and hence forth be called as Dermato-Trichologist.

Hence, the theme of the Third International Congress of Trichology Hair India 2014 will be "Emphasis on the Importance of Dermato-Trichologist.

We welcome all the Dermato-Trichologists of the world to delve deep into the ocean of trichology and transform the pearls of wisdom into precious pieces of advice to patients in pursuit of hair for them, the happiness.
