The active development of trichology in the countries of the Russian-speaking space received at the beginning of the 2000s and has been experiencing a tangible rise over the past few years. Thanks to the work of the authors who stood at the origins of the Eastern European hair science, their dedication to their beloved work and more than 20 years of efforts, active work on the integration of world knowledge, the modern history of the development of trichology has gone from a bold creative idea to an elite demanded specialty.
