Due to language and other difficulties The Trichological Society concedes that academic courses in pure-trichology for South Koreans are best operated by South Korean academics.
Korea Scalp Hair Institution (KSHI) was inaugurated by 30 people consisting of professors and leaders within the scalp and hair sciences professions.
Until recently, levels of understanding regarding scalp and hair were low and afflictions considered ‘insignificant’. However there is a growing need for qualified professional services within this specialist discipline as concerns about the appearance and health of the hair and scalp increase.
KSHI was established to provide education and research activities for academics and professional trichologists.
KSHI is developing a high level curriculum for the academic study of pure-trichology.
KSHI seeks to equal the highest academic standards worldwide and thereby achieve the academic position of the best professional Trichology institution in Korea – based on internationally verified clinical data through TTS.
Korea Scalp Hair Institution (KSHI) consists of :
The President: Dr Jongman Lim (a former Vice-President of Seokyeong University and Doctor of Business Administration)
3 advisors who are also KSHI executives
10 prominent counsellors working for the academic development and industrial growth of Trichology.
