Scientific Advisory Council (SAC)

The Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) examines and explains scientific claims and conducts research on hair products for the benefit of consumers and the industry at large. The SAC verifies the science behind hair-related product and service claims. The scientists, physicians and other treatment professionals who comprise the Hair Foundation Scientific Advisory Council are a diverse group of qualified individuals with expertise in the scientific, regulatory, and legal conduct of clinical trials and research and who are independent and internationally regarded experts in the broad field of hair health and hair health.

The SAC provides the research that supports the Hair Foundation's goal to provide scientific and education-based, unbiased information on hair, hair health, hair care, hair loss and treatments for conditions of the hair and scalp. The Hair Foundation invites scientists, physicians, and other treatment professionals, who represent the broad and diverse hair health and hair care community, both nationally and internationally, to join us in this effort.
