We’re here for you

Hair loss can be confusing. Companies are constantly promoting their own solutions and downplaying the side effects of their products. Many of these ‘treatments’ don’t even work, as they’re often just selling useless snake oil.

IHSA brings together a team of scientists and medical experts whose goal is to provide clear, up-to-date information on all hair science research. We aim to provide clarity for men and women struggling with hair loss by ranking treatments based on their effectiveness and the likelihood of side effects. We’re committed to providing you with information about the latest research, always backing up our findings with scientific studies.

We are committed to…
