"The clinic has been a saviour for my hair. As you will see from the photos, my hair was seriously damaged and I suffered huge hair loss to the sides and at the back of my hair. The patches were so big it was depressing. When I went to the clinic, Teresa did a full analysis which confirmed the extent of the damage. My hair was so dry and devoid of any nutrients, it was like hay. The ends were chronically splitting and breaking. Although it was depressing to have to face the truth, it was the beginning of a new hair journey. After 8 months of sticking religiously to Teresa's recommended (and simple) hair routine, I have seen amazing results. My hair has not only grown back at a rate I never imagined but it has never felt so strong. I had gotten used to weak, thin hair which would break at the slightest pull, but now my hair feels thick and robust. The photos speak for themselves. I feel so lucky to have discovered the clinic - I only wished I had discovered it years ago. I would not go anywhere else."

"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 (everyday...yes everyday)
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.
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 in regularly in the new year!"

Thanks for making a real difference to my hair, after being damaged by over processing 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 refrained 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."

"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.
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.
Keep doing the good work that you do, Teresa!"

"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."

"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 starter 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 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!"

"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."

"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."
(Susan, Feb 2011)
"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!"
(Anon., May 2011)
"What a difference to one's self esteem and confidence does healthy, well looked after hair make. I consider myself blessed to have been recomended 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!"

"I was loosing my hair because of a bad relaxer, and that's when i started going to the clinic. Before my hair was too short but now it is really growing and i like the results of the treatments." (Palmira, 15 May 2012)
"By the time I went to the Fulham Scalp and Hair Clinic, I had tried everything else I could think of to stop my hair falling out. I’d seen dermatologists, tried steroid medications, natural remedies… and much more, but with no luck. My hair continued to fall out until there was almost nothing left. I had a consultation with Teresa and began treatments with her weekly, and then fortnightly. I was amazed at the growth, strength and health of my hair – I had almost given up. The Clinic is clean, the staff are friendly and most of all, the treatments really do work. I would (and have) recommend the clinic to anyone suffering with hair issues.Before searching the internet, in despair, I had never even heard of trichology; it’s something that has seriously changed my life. I think its a small price to pay as the results are priceless, especially considering I’d seen a dermatologist under the NHS which simply worsened my problems. Definitely worth a visit!"

"My daughter's shoulder length hair had been breaking steadily and despite trying numerous hair products and several visits to a dermatologist her hair continued to break causing much distress to both of us. I was online one evening trying to find a remedy or at least someone who could help when I came across Teresa's web site, actually I came across the National Register for Trichologist which led me to the Fulham Scalp and Hair Clinic.I sent an email briefly describing my daughter's problem and was quite surprised when Teresa called me the following morning to discuss the matter further. I wasn't pressed or cajoled into making an appointment nor did she try to convince me that she had a magic cure but the discussion we had made me feel confident about her skills - so I made the appointment. To cut a very long story short, my daughter's first consultation and treatment was in November last year when her hair in parts was very close to her head, 5 months later, not only has it grown considerably but is thick and healthy in it's appearance. The care and attention Teresa put into treating my daughter's hair combined with the products used are the sole reason for this progress and for that, I thank her." (Ivonne, 10 May 2012)

"This is my honest and personal experience with this Hair Clinic. * PLEASE READ TO THE END *
Firstly I would like to highlight the fact that this a hair clinic and not just another hair dressers. A title earned, as it is run by a professional who has studied a Masters degree, a Member of the Institute of Trichologists with 25 years experience. This was comforting to me as I researched on the net how to finally
grow back my temple and nape hair after hiding under extravagant wig caps, weaves and wigs for a decade. This is the only clinic in London I could find that specialised in Black Afro Hair and was affordable. The website is very informative and even inspiring with pictures of how long Afro hair can actually grow with good care and maintenance. No, they are not wearing weaves; its ALL natural. Like I said, Teresa is a professional in this field.
When I first went there, I did not know what to expect. Firstly, its in such a calm,discrete location, which I was very pleased about. When I went in they were very welcoming and when I talked about my problems and what I wanted to achieve, Teresa was very understanding and honest. No false promises or gimmicks. So we started out an individually tailored plan, and I cannot stress enough that at this point you must be consistent in order to achieve results. I’ve transitioned to natural hair and its honestly the longest but more importantly the healthiest its ever been.
Teresa is very committed to helping me get to where I want to be with my hair and has given me a lot more confidence hence the reason I travel more than 65miles each fortnight to treat my hair, because I can see the difference already. I still wear wigs sometimes to change up my look, but I now know what types are hindering my hair development and what ones are suitable as well as protecting.
I would really encourage anyone from any background with any hair type that has issues with their hair to seek advise from this professional. If there is a solution, Teresa will tell you. If there is not she will not lie. Either way, i suggest you stop neglecting it because there is hope. :) " (Amanda, 3 May 2012)
