We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Linda Amerson, PhD, IIT, TECT,BCHHP and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Linda, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
The one thing about my industries specialty, that outsiders are probably unaware of is the indept level of research about hair science, health and nutrition required to receive a board certification as a Board Certified Trichologist and Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am most proud about all of the image transformations of Patients, who receiving my Clinic scalp treatments, used my award-winning products, and made dietary changes for maximum results.
Also, proud and humbled to to receive 3 Proclamations: White House Proclamation, Texas Senate Proclamation, City of Arlington Proclamation recognized with Dr. Linda Amerson Day on September 25th. Presented the Key to the City of Corpus Christi from the Mayor, as well as numerous other awards. My 9th year of giving a Scholarship to a youth affected with alopecia, and pursuing college. This Scholarship is presented in September during National Alopecia Awareness Month. Truly grateful.
Someone is always watching entrepreneurs, when you are making a difference in the community.
Getting where I am today has not been easy. Staying motivated and consist with my vision.
I have learned many lessons in over 4 decades.
Serve with excellence, listen attentively to customers, do not judge (watch facial expresions),
decline to service difficult clients…do not let them disturb your positively, and surround yourself with people who you can learn from.
What I would like the world to know about me and my brand is we ‘Serve the Community with Excellence from head to toe. We offer 4 types of Hair Science tools to Analysis the hair and scalp,, as well as comprehensive 37 page Wellness Report, for your complete Wellness Journey’

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I stand on the shoulders of my Professors:
The late Dr. Hattie Thompson, PhD, IAT, IIT

Dr. Sandra Baldie, PhD, IIT, TECT
I began my journey into Trichology learning from
all of them, thanking them for their knowledge.
In addition, I invested in several books…several Atlas of Dermatology, Hair loss and scalp disorders, body systems, nutrition, systemic diseases, and The PDR for Prescription Drugs to name a few.
