Hair guru Lisa Akbari, also known by her patients as “The Hair Doctor,” started in the beauty and hair care field over thirty years ago as a licensed Cosmetologist and Aesthetician, and is now a board certified Trichologist. Through her seminars, workshops, classes, and books, the “Hair Doctor” educates patients, dermatologists, and hairstylists on how to prevent aging hair. Akbari along with her husband, Hooshang Akbari, are the directors and lead Trichologists of Hair Nutrition and Research in Memphis Tennessee, which focuses on education, research, and analysis of hair and its connection to the scalp. Lisa Akbari is a hair care pioneer. Truly an innovator in the field of Trichology, Akbari is the author of The Black Woman’s Guide to Beautiful Hair, which is the #1 selling Black Hair Care book according to Nielsen's ratings. Her latest book, Every Woman’s Guide to Beautiful Hair at Any Age, has just been released.

As a frequent contributor to Grace Magazine, WHBQ-TV (Memphis) and WLOK Radio (Memphis), and, Akbari is able to explain the most complex hair and scalp problems in an easy to understand and informative way. Also featured in JET Magazine and Cosmopolitan Magazine, Akbari provides practical advice to some of the most intense hair and scalp issues affecting all hair types today. For most of Lisa Akbari's life she has worked as a hair care professional and has been a licensed and board certified Cosmetologist as well as an Aesthetician for 30 years. She is now a Trichologist. Lisa Akbari began her serious study in the field of Trichology after God revealed to her the hair and scalp problems that many women were having. She was led by the Heavenly Father to remove herself from the styling chair, and began her research, studying hair strands of all types and textures as well as scalp disorders. Her findings enabled her to develop new theories which led to more extensive tests, studies and research. The many hours of research, tests, and studies resulted in the discovery of hair disorders, that she coined Short Hair Syndrome and Follicular Epidermis Alopecia. Short Hair Syndrome is a hair disorder that prevents the hair strands from obtaining it's potential length and/or fullness, and is the leading type of hair loss among women. Lisa Akbari has also done research on the scalp and its disorders, and has conducted a study called "Scalp as Skin". This study is proving many theories that she had about the scalp and its ability to heal when the right environment is created. Also from this study Akbari coined Follicular Epidermis Alopecia, a form of scalp hair loss. FEA is predominately found in women, but it can also occur in men and children. Because FEA is a surface scalp hair loss, women are the more likely candidate; women tend to unknowably do more negative things to their scalp surface when manipulating with their hair. Although FEA is quite often misdiagnosed as pattern baldness, Early detection of FEA can occur by noticing the first sign of a change in the density (hairs growing from the scalp) of your head. An increase in hair loss, scalp itch, flaking or peeling of the scalp, tender or sore scalp, and redness of the scalp also might be signs that you have FEA.
