AFRO HAIR SPECIALISTS

Looking for a trichologist for afro hair? 

As specialist afro hair trichologists, we provide clear advice on what styles and caring habits to avoid and what should be an essential part of your routine. We are not dermatologists, but rather scalp and hair trichologists, with varying differences between the two. Read our blog for a better overview of the difference between a trichologist and a dermatologist.

Our consultations assess your hair and scalp health individually by taking time to understand your:

Personal hair care routine

Styling History

Nutritional Habits

Medical Concerns

Overall Well Being

Teresa Richardson MIT

Teresa started her career as a hairdresser, obtaining prestigious qualifications in Afro hairdressing, cutting, colouring, and styling. Due to her concern about how much hair is damaged during various processes, she started working from home away from salon fashions and focused on caring for and maintaining Afro and curly hair.

She has always been sought after and had patients travelling internationally to be seen by her. Eventually, however, she sought a greater intellectual challenge to stretch her passion for hair and scalp health and became a registered member of The Institute of Trichologists with a particular focus on Afro-Caribbean, mixed, and textured hair types. 

Teresa has studied and worked with all hair types, but unlike many in the field, she has a wealth of experience in working with Afro and mixed hair types in particular.

Our products have always had a focus on being functional and kind. They are aimed at delivering a result for highly sensitive, inflamed or struggling scalps without having to compromise on the effect on your hair. Often medicated shampoos and treatments can leave the hair dry and brittle, and this effect is exaggerated on Afro hair which is naturally more fragile. The Teresa Angelina Trichology Range provides clinical care for the scalp, health and hydration for the hair and all designed with Afro and mixed hair types at the forefront.” – Teresa Richardson

Eleanore Richardson MIT

Eleanore graduated from UCL with an MSci in Natural Sciences. With a keen interest in hair and scalp care and under the careful tutelage of Teresa, Eleanore is dedicated to the holistic treatment of Afro-Caribbean hair using a combination of science, natural ingredients, and common sense.

“The last two years have been a clear example that stress impacts our body physically and in our clinic, we are seeing an increasing number of inflammatory diagnoses following two years of Covid-19 disruption. For example, we have had a record number of public sector workers come through our doors suffering shedding and autoimmune/ inflammatory conditions of the scalp as a result of being completely exhausted, anxious and stressed with the pressure of needing to continue to work throughout a pandemic and adapt furiously to changes.” – Eleanore Richardson

This place has genuinely changed my life! I went from relying on the daily use of wigs to finally being able to understand and appreciate my natural coils. I would never have been able to wear my natural hair out a year ago (mostly due to the fact that I had so many bald spots and basically no hairline!) so I am shocked daily at how far I’ve come in such a short space of time. If you decide to visit, please do listen to the advice of these wonderful experts, it really does work! I’ve also realised how much we over complicate black hair, healthy black hair is actually super simple to achieve. Thank you everyone at Fulham Scalp & Hair Clinic! Each day I wear my hair out, I’m appreciative of the day I discovered this wonderful place!

I’ve been getting desperate with my 4C hair situation, so I’m so glad I found this clinic. Eleanore and Ashley were so accommodating and nice! I learned a lot of new things. Now, my hair has improved a LOT after following Eleanore's advice. Highly recommend.

Booked a consultation and the information I received was life changing. Didn't realise how badly I was maintaining my hair. Since getting my hair treated and trimmed, I have been given a healthy hair routine that has given me confidence and happiness. For anyone thinking about it definitely do it. Your not just paying for the treatment but also the knowledge. Customer service and attention to detail was 5*

My hair was damaged from keratin treatments. After doing some research I found this place online. I was nervous about contacting them for fear of judgement and blame. In May 2022 I got in touch. Even before I arrived the receptionist really reassured me and was very kind. Eleanor did my consultation. Her and Teresa are professional, empathetic, warm, supportive and knowledgeable. I didn't really know how to look after natural hair. However this has revolutionised things for me. My hairs unrecognisable to before. Its grown a lot and is the healthiest it's ever been. I'm so glad I found this place. I attend regularly for treatments. I can't recommend this place enough!!

I became a patient of the Fulham Scalp & Hair Clinic two years ago on the advice of my dermatologist who suggested that I find a trichologist. One of the reasons for choosing this clinic was due to their extensive knowledge of differing medical conditions that cause issues with scalps and hair. I was made to feel so welcome and after an examination of my scalp, hair and lifestyle a proper treatment plan was started. I am so pleased about the progress I have made, how my scalp inflammation has decreased and how I have been taught to take care of my scalp and hair. I still regularly have my scalp examined and receive treatment in order to ensure that no flare ups on my scalp recur. I am thrilled that my dermatologist recommended that I see a trichologist and I am glad that I chose Teresa and Eleanor due to their expertise, care and genuine interest and pride in seeing their patients' progression.

I had my initial consultation with Eleanor. from the moment I met her she was professional, empathic, extremely knowledgeable and warm in rapport. For context I have thick 4C hair, and I was in good hands. Eleanor knew exactly what she doing, saw the beauty in my hair and did not feel anyway swayed by hair in its natural state. I would highly recommend bringing any blood test results to your consultation. I was as at loss as to why my hair was shedding, thinning in places and not retaining length when I appeared to be doing all the right things to prevent this. Eleanor was able to read my blood test results and examine my hair throughly to make a diagnosis. We discovered that my hair shedding/loss was due to my extremely low iron and vitamin D levels. I travelled from the West Midlands for this appointment and will be happy to travel again for treatments. Do try to be open to the advice and insight given, as a lot of it is new to us a community. Thank you to the team for your work and professional approach in helping black women learn about maintaining healthy flourishing hair.

I had my initial consultation today and was very anxious about it due to historical hair trauma. Eleanor was kind, knowledgeable and informative. I did not feel judged for the condition of my hair and was given realistic expectations and simple steps to manage my hair issues. Would highly recommend! Will be back for a treatment
