What is a Certified Scalp Care Specialist?

Updated: Feb 8

It was back in 2002 when my journey to Certified Scalp Care Specialist started. I had no idea I was going to be a Certified Scalp Care Specialist (CSCS). Honestly, when I started doing hair professionally, it wasn’t because I loved it. I began doing hair because I was good at it and it was a trade that I could do while I was going to college. My plan was to use my hairstyling license to generate income for my family while I obtained my Pharm D. I gotta say y’all, it sounded like a good plan, until it didn’t. I graduated from cosmetology school and I attended Youngstown State University for undergrad coursework, which took me 4 years to complete. Then, I completed all the documentation to enroll into a doctorate program at Northeastern Ohio College of Medicine and Pharmacy.
