The AHLA recognizes that hair loss of any kind is a serious, life altering disorder and understands just how crippling this disease of the spirit can be to many who suffer with it.
While the American Hair Loss Association is aware of many ethical practitioners and treatment providers in this field, we also recognize the vulnerability of the hair loss sufferer. For this reason, the AHLA has been created in part to act as an advocate for, and to protect all those with this disease from questionable hair loss practitioners and treatment marketers.
