Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Linda Amerson.
Hi Dr. Amerson, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I am Dr. Linda Amerson, board-certified Trichologist, CEO of LA’s Hair & Scalp Clinic. I attended the Accredited International Institute of Trichology. This educational program was very intense and include levels of Bachelors of Science, Masters of Science and Dissertation topic researched and presented to a Medical Board to become a Doctor in Trichology.
I love science and research. As a 40-year veteran hair scientist, I get to the ROOT of the problem microscopically by using a polarized microscope and tricholoscope. I assist all ethnicities, men, women and children affected with some form of hair loss or scalp issue… there are over 100 categories.
We opened the 1st International Trichology Training Center in the Western USA in 1999. We provide seminars, one on one training to professionals, as well as hair growth challenges and hair/scalp care classes to consumers. I added my exclusive product line 14 years ago, which became recognized as an award-winning product line! My products are manufactured by an award-winning OSHA approved facility in North Texas. I am blessed to receive global positive testimonials from around the globe. Our products include super hair regrowth properties: Hair and Scalp Shampoo, Revitalizing Conditioner, Leave-In Conditioner, Anti-Itch Soothing Oil, and Super Hair Regrowth Follicle Serum.
As a journalist, we educate consumers with hair science, healthy hair and healthy scalp information, with our articles. I am blessed again to have written for 74 national publications, both print and digital, as well as featured as the ‘Cover Girl’ on nine publications. I am humbled to have received numerous awards, as well as notable recognitions such as: White House Proclamation, Texas Senate Proclamation, Arlington Proclamation-Dr. Linda Amerson Day and The Key to the City of Corpus Christi. My journey continues… in 2012, we began our Philanthropy of giving an annual scholarship to youth between the ages of 16-19 diagnosed with alopecia and pursuing college or a trade.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I have received many struggles. Some include: business burglary, hiring good staff. The struggle of helping staff achieve their goal then they leave… long story short, in business hiring people who see your vision and would like to join this journey. We have had challenges with product line expansion. Some interested companies and people only see the benefit for them, not a partnership.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Our business is a sole proprietor, LA’s Hair & Scalp Clinic, while our product line is an LLC, Dr. Amerson’s Therapeutic Essentials, LLC. As a board-certified Trichologist, we are known as renown hair loss and scalp expert. There are several things that set me apart, to name a few: I became the 1st Board Certified Trichologist in the Western USA, in 1999 open the 1st International Trichology Training Center, we are a published journalist in 74 national publications as counting, we have numerous success cases, we target youth between the ages of 16-19 for our annual Scholarship, we retail our own product line, to name a few.

I would like your readers to know about our brand, offerings and services is that we have a strong brand striving to serve the community with excellence.

Can you talk about how you think about risk?
Risk-taking can become an asset. After many years of investing in advertising my Clinic on many radio shows, in 2013, I took the plunge to host my own podcast.
Ask Dr. Amerson on DfwiRadio.com. Evolved! Currently, in my 8th year, this platform has been a great way to promote my services, products scholarship, as well as learn from my expert guests on a variety of topics to educate my listening audience.
