Here at Ross Hair Studio and Clinic in Dublin, Ireland, we've been treating hair loss problems since my grandfather's time.
We've seen so-called miracle cures come and go, and we've tested so many products that before computers came along in the 1990s, we had to build an extension office to house all our records.
So you can take it from us that if you have a hair loss problem, we've almost certainly heard of it, and treated it, too.
We are an independent studio and clinic, and we've been family-owned since 1921, so we won't be recommending anything to you because some hair product company is paying us to do so, or because we operate under some franchise arrangement.
That means all our advice is based solely on the experience we've gained through treating thousands of clients, both men and women, over the last 80 years.
I trained with Molton Brown, one of the world’s top salons, in London in the late 1970s and then returned to work with the family business in Dublin.
After my father, the senior partner, thought I had accomplished a high enough level of expertise, he allowed me to take over the running of the business and I have been doing that ever since.
Ross Hair Studio and Clinic had a salon off Grafton Street in Dublin for many years. I worked there for at least 25 years. We moved out to Rathfarnham in 2002 where we mainly specialise in Hair and Scalp disorders and look after people with traumatic hairloss.
We still offer a full hairdressing service of cutting and colouring, based on our many years of excellence and experience in these areas.
At Ross Hair Studio and Clinic we take great pride in dealing not just with your hair, but with what makes your hair the way it is.
This means using our 80 years of company experience to analyse the condition of your hair and scalp in detail, and come up with a solution that what we hope will best please you, the client.
When dealing with hair loss, for instance, we use only non-chemical products, and we investigate your diet and lifestyle first to make sure that you're giving your hair the best possible chance to stay healthy and to flourish.
There are many problems associated with both hair and scalp, but on the other hand, we have many solutions - and solutions that we know will work in most cases.
And if we come across a problem that we believe is beyond our remit, we won't fob you off with some quick-fix potion. We will instead refer you to a qualified specialist who can deal with your specific situation.
