Trinity Trichology Clinic came into existence in 2021 after Belinda completed the Trichology Certificate course at TrichoCare Education, U.K. The course focused on the science of the scalp/skin, hair structure and its needs, as well as the role of different organ systems in the health and maintenance of a healthy scalp and hair. Trichology is a holistic discipline, which means that Belinda extensively studied the impact of nutrition, lifestyle, diseases (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, etc), hormonal changes, medications, stress, and hair care products, on the health of the scalp and hair.
Belinda has since continued to expand her knowledge in Trichology, by attending CPD events, further training in the different pathologies which affect hair and scalp, and in microscopy and Trichoscopy.
As a Certified Trichologist, Belinda specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Hair & Scalp Disorders, such as Female and Male Pattern Hair Loss, Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (which predominantly affects Black women), Traction Alopecia, Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata and a vast array of other conditions.
Prior to training and qualifying as a Trichologist, Belinda Akosua Asafo-Agyei is a certified and qualified hairdresser of 20 years standing who first trained in Ghana and later on in London, undertaking many HABIA courses such as Hair Replacement Systems (Men & Women), Braids, Cornrows, Weave, French Plaits and Crochet Braids, Bridal Hair Styles, and Natural Hair Care including Treatments.
What is trichology?
Trichology is the scientific study of hair and scalp disorders. A trichologist is someone who has specialised in the science of hair and scalp and is able to diagnose conditions which affect hair and scalp. A trichologist will be able to provide some in-clinic treatments (such as those for scaly scalp conditions) and will be able to educate the patient about their condition(s) and make recommendations for treatments and other specialists to consult to help treat or cure their hair and scalp conditions.
