What Our Clients Say
Our clients send us a bunch of smiles for our services and we just love them!
"It’s wonderful to get professional advice on how to care for my hair properly this time, so I don’t have to chop it all off and start again…particularly since there is so much ill-informed “advice” on blogs/websites … Definitely recommend a visit."
"What a difference to one’s self-esteem and confidence does healthy, well looked after hair make. I consider myself blessed to have been recommended to Teresa who has been looking after my hair for 15 years. My once barely shoulder-length AFRO hair is now mid-back length and full of life!"
"Thanks, Teresa for giving me an alternative solution to preventing my hair loss. My hair is thinning and I was not keen on using Minoxidil, Propecia or any of the other stronger/more effective products on the market but I do like her naturally stimulating scalp products and the light/electro-therapy that is being used. It is also so relaxing in your clinic that I really enjoy coming in for my treatments. I wish you all the best!"
"Teresa has looked after my hair for more than twenty-five years. She is always professional and caring and only acts in the best interest of her clients. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone, from any background, who needs advice or who suffers from problems with their hair or scalp."
"Afro hair can be healthy, long and strong without using harsh chemicals and the one woman who has proven to me that she can give you this quality of hair is Teresa Angelina Richardson MIT."
"I started going to Teresa after I decided that I just couldn’t face plaiting my own hair again. My hair was in bad condition and very thin. I never for one minute believed that anybody could restore it…I was wrong! Through Teresa’s professional care my hair is now healthy, thicker and longer than it has ever been. I would never let anybody other than Teresa touch my hair again. Thank you so much Teresa!"
"Teresa has a gift for treating Afro hair. I used to have very fine and broken hair around the front of my head before I started seeing her and she is really improving it quite dramatically. My hair has never been longer or healthier and I don’t think that I could trust anybody else with it. Her hair products, particularly the Leave-in Protector, are better than any on the market and leave my hair deeply moisturised and glossy. My daughter has mixed hair and I use the product on her hair to twist it into ringlets so that it can dry naturally. She loves it because her frizzy hair is now tamed."
"I have started seeing Teresa for my itchy scalp and had previously been to many other trichologists who had not managed to fix my problem. After the first and second visit, I saw a vast improvement in my condition and the products that she gave me to use at home have really calmed down my condition. I’m very pleased with the results so far."
"Once my scalp is completely clean, I’ve been told that we will then concentrate on getting my hair – which has had its fair share of heat from tongs and blow-dries over the years – to its best possible form."
"I’ve only just started to see Teresa but let me just say that my scalp is already beginning to thank her! I suffered from an intensely dry, flaky scalp for about 16 years until I went to the Fulham Hair Clinic. Teresa examined my scalp/hair and determined that it was an issue with contact dermatitis – an allergic reaction that was likely triggered by a bad relaxer job in the past. Since my first appointment (just under 2 weeks ago), my scalp has dramatically improved. I wish I’d started to see her earlier and highly recommend her to anyone battling with similar issues."
"Dear Teresa, thanks for making a real difference to my hair, after being damaged by overprocessing and heat the past few months have been stressful. After my full consultation with you I was heartened by your advice and with faith used your products as well as refrain from using my blow dryer and tongs. After my visit last week I can see how much my hair has grown and it is healthy, so many people have commented. Thanks for nurturing my hair and giving those with afro hair types a light at the end of the tunnel. I am so grateful for the services you provide, thank you."
"Theresa will not promise you results without you putting in the work yourself but stick to it because the results are worth it. I will be back regularly in the new year!"
"After years of mistreating my hair and miss-education of the effect and damage of weaves, heat and chemicals, my hairline was at a total loss. I looked into transplants but came across this clinic as I was researching. I booked my appointment in July this year and immediately started my treatment programme. Unfortunately, I’ve only been able to make it into the salon about 4 times but I have vigilantly kept to the routine Theresa set for me (every day … yes every day). It takes a lot of persistence but the results have been miraculous!! I now have hair where I was literally bald from traction alopecia and the texture of my hair is amazing."
"After noticing a significant loss of hair due to hormonal reasons a couple of years ago I started looking out for hairdressers or clinics which specialised in hair loss. I came across various clinics who all charged ridiculous amounts, including one which charged £300 for a dubious looking bottle of shampoo. Fortunately, I came across Fulham Scalp and Hair clinic. The consultation with Teresa was thorough and helpful and I have been using the treatments ever since. There has been a definite improvement in my hair both in terms of growth and condition. Teresa and Eleanore are very friendly and professional and I would definitely recommend them."
"I went to the Fulham Hair & Scalp clinic at the start of my transition to natural hair and away from dry, damaged, over-processed, heat-damaged “hair”. It was the best decision I could have made. After 7 months of following Teresa’s recommended routine, my hair has grown out strong & healthy. The regime is simple (10 mins of moisturising a day) and a 1-hour wash a day, using “all-natural products”."
"I started seeing Teresa for my itchy scalp and had previously been to many other trichologists who had not managed to fix my problem. After the first and second visit, I saw a vast improvement in my condition and the products that she gave me has really calmed down my condition. I’m very, very pleased with the results. Due to stress, my hair started falling out.. my hair became really thin. For the past 8 weeks now I’ve been using your deep conditioning clay mask and your leave-in hair protector for my hair. It has made a huge difference. This is my hair now and I do recommend this!! Thank you so much"
"Great service, friendly and knowledgeable. My hair is healthy and has grown so much, thanks to Teresa and Eleanore. I wish I had started sooner!"
"Eleanore and Teresa have advance knowledge and a great understanding of afro hair, which has helped me learn a lot about my own hair, which has resulted in my hair being more healthy after having treatments and using their products. I’ve also seen growth in areas that have previously remained broken! They are extremely friendly and provide great customer service, which is why I continue to go there for treatments."

What to expect as a returning patient.

What is the difference between a trichologist and a dermatologist?
Trichologists are specialists who focus on diagnosing and treating hair and scalp conditions, while dermatologists are medical doctors who specialise in skin, hair, and nail conditions. People with specific hair and scalp problems consult with a trichologist because they have specialised training and expertise in this area, allowing for a quick and focused diagnosis. Additionally, some hair and scalp issues are not caused by medical conditions, rather from lifestyle or styling issues which a trichologist can determine and treat.
