Congress 2020 Web Event Info

Welcome to the International Trichology Congress 2020 web event

This symposium will explore how different hair types and hair habits affect the condition of the hair and the scalp, and how, in turn, these affect the needs of clients and consumers.  Many of the presentations will focus on black hair and scalp care, which is an area of great interest at the moment in the cosmetics industry and to trichologists.  However, the symposium will also cover a wide range of other different hair types and problems.

This event follows a very successful Ethnic Hair Care Symposium held by TRI Princeton in Red Bank, New Jersey, last year.  The partnership between the ITC and TRI is a chance for cosmetic scientists and trichology practitioners to be brought together for the first time in this unique event to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the field.  This unique, intense and not-to-be-missed on-line event is CPD registered and will be held on the 4th, 5th and 6th of October 2020.
