Trinity Trichology Clinic came into existence after Belinda completed the Trichology Certificate 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 as a member of the ART (Association of Registered Trichologists), and by attending CPD events, further training in the different pathologies which affect hair and scalp, as well as 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, Mrs 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.

This is an autoimmune condition that can be triggered or exacerbated by stress, but about a fifth of people with this condition have a family history of alopecia already. The condition normally presents as a circular area of hair loss.
Otherwise known as genetic hair loss or male and female pattern baldness, this type of alopecia is particularly common among men but can also affect women.
In women, it is likely to lead to diffuse hair loss, (a general thinning of the overall hair density) rather than obvious bald patches and treatments to improve this condition are often likely to be more effective on women than on men.
Although there is no cure for this condition, hair loss can be limited or slowed down in some cases when treated early. For more extensive cases the best solution may be a hair transplant. The important thing to understand is that response to treatments are incredibly varied from person to person.
Temporary hair loss that often follows severe changes to the body’s normal functioning. During this period of change more hairs than normal enter into the shedding phase of their hair growth cycle at the same time, resulting in hair shedding and a loss of hair density. This is most commonly noticed after severe stress, illness, weight loss or postpartum pregnancy, surgery, fever, nutritional deficiency, medication.
Affecting almost 2% of the population, Psoriasis is a common scaling skin disease which can commonly develop in the scalp also. The condition is distressing but generally does not cause permanent hair loss. The precise cause of psoriasis is not known, but it is almost certainly the result of a disorder of the immune system. Correct diagnosis prior to treatment is essential.
This pustular condition, caused by bacterial infection of the follicle. It can be very itchy and can eventually lead to permanent hair loss and scarring. Scratching and shaving the hair short are easy ways to keep the infection spreading therefore prompt treatment and correct advice are essential, but the condition is not always curable.
This condition is caused by allergens that have come into contact with the scalp, such as oils, hair colours and other styling products. This results in a flaky and severely itchy scalp that can also be red and tender. Treatment is almost always successful but diagnosis is key.
Seborrhoeic eczema (dermatitis) is caused by an overgrowth of a yeast population on the surface of the scalp causing increased skin cell turnover which results in scaling and flaking skin. The scalp can also be very itchy and the condition can be exacerbated by stress or dietary factors. Treatment can control this condition but the those experiencing it may always be prone to symptoms in the future.
