The National Hair Journal is a hair replacement and restoration industry resource. Its mission is to promote the highest professional and ethical standards through the dissemination of objective information and the encouragement of continuing education and skills building. It chooses not to publish negative or contentious material unless it is necessary to halt business practices that would be detrimental to the industry. The Journal is 100% independent and is not beholden to, or influenced by, any individual investor, manufacturer or other commercial interest.
The views expressed in The National Hair Journal are those of the individual author or contributor and not those of The National Hair Journal, its editors or staff.

Articles are accepted for publication if they contain information that is judged to be of importance and interest to Journal readers. Wherever possible, we encourage writers not to include company or brand names unless they are necessary for a more complete understanding of the article. The National Hair Journal works hard to ensure that all published material is objective, fair and courteous.
