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. 

In June 2021, she started examining and tutoring for the Institute of Trichologists, dealing with the basic science module for the foundation year which covers topics such as biology, chemistry, maths, physics and trichology related principles. 

Eleanore’s experience and innate understanding of Afro hair allow her to confidently diagnose and treat common issues in patients of colour.


“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

Booked the initial appointment as I have damaged hair due to bleaching and I had an itchy scalp on a very small region at the back of the scalp. As a healthcare professional myself I did not expect the trichologist to have a magic wand and cure me in one session. 3 appointments ( almost 3 months) in and buying all products recommended (7 of them - the calming scalp cream is missing in the picture) , my scalp became extremely flaky and itchy to an extent that It kept me awake at night. When informed the trichologist my experience, the only recommendation was to trial the Cade oil shampoo... which caused me further discomfort and irritation.I had to stop using all their products as I couldn't stand the itchiness and inflammation anymore (although used the cade oil shampoo several times). Who would've thought that going to a trichologist you will end up with and super irritated and itchy scalp?!Very disappointed with the overall experience, I felt the focus was mainly on selling their products, booking for treatments and not necessarily helping me with my concerns, especially that the professional did not have any concers re my condition, 400£ later I ended up booking an app with the Dr in order to solve the issues caused by their products.

I really hated my experience at Fulham Scalp & Hair Clinic and I would not recommend it at all. The reason why I visited was because I had concerns about changes I saw in my hair, particularly the amount of hair I was losing at the sides (edges).I booked an appointment which comprised of a consultation + 1st treatment. I had the consultation with the owners daughter who asked me about my hair routine, health, products and also took a sample of my hair to look at underneath a microscope. During the consultation the main points she explained to me were that blow drying my hair was bad, the hair needed to be washed more often and hair grease and oils were very bad for my hair despite the fact I have been using them my whole life and I had a good amount of hair. After the consultation she then washed it with their own branded hair products, steamed it did some light therapy and then braided it. She then told me that I would have to come back at some point for a trim and that her mother (the owner) was the only one that could do it. At the end she gave me some basic instructions about using the hair products, and I also purchased some of their products.A few days using their products I experienced a very high level of dryness to my scalp even though I was using A LOT of products everyday my hair would be extremely dry after a couple of hours. When I called them about it the receptionist answered and said the clinic was really busy and that I should try and use coconut oil despite not even being a qualified trichologist, and the trichologist warning that oils were bad for the hair! At my next appointment for the trim I was treated by the owner, she made remarks about how dry my hair was (even though I was following the instructions and using ONLY their products), and how as a black person I should be proud of my hair and wear more natural hair styles, and throw away the blow dryer. She washed my hair and then trimmed it! Which I had never heard of in my life especially with afro hair because it can shrivel up to virtually nothing so when you cut even what seems like the tiniest bit it is actually a lot, but she insisted that it was the "correct" way. During the trim I found it really humiliating and embarrassing because in the styling room I was sat next to another lady who was also having her hair treated and I just really hated every moment of the owner trimming my hair and also lecturing me in it's damaged state like that. Over the course of 3 months following the instructions, steaming my hair everyday, and washing it once a week and using the products my hair just got worse and also breaking, knotty,shedding, weaker, thinner, and shorter than it was originally at my first consultation. I was really upset, especially as when I contacted them about my concerns they kept saying my hair was just "adapting".I eventually discontinued their advice and products,It didn't happen overnight but my hair eventually gradually got back to how it used to be, by doing the "bad" things such as blow drying, using greases and oils and washing it less often. I feel that Fulham Scalp & Hair clinic are not very knowledgeable in a wide variety of hair types particularly Afro hair. They preach and say blow drying, greases and oils, weaves,wigs and not washing your hair often are bad for the health of your hair yet there are thousands of videos on YouTube which contradict these "theories". I feel they cater more to people with looser hair types and not coarser hair types, the products they sell are also very expensive especially as they do not even contain a lot in them mostly comprise of menthol and water. They also seem to care more about their old customers and do not even ask for feedback from new customers, are really hypocritical of your hair choices even though they wear their hair pin straight. Don't waste your money here, if you are having hair problems think closer to home...diet, lifestyle change, stress etcI wasted almost £300 here with no results, think carefully before visiting this clinic, do your own research first!!!
