The Meditation: Meditation for Hair Loss

If you follow me on Instagram or read my blog regularly you will know that I've been struggling with hair loss for quite some time. I've been having unexplained hair fall in several spots the hair eventually grows back only to fall again. I've been to trichologists and doctors and though helpful to a point nothing topical or medical seems to be combating the loss of hair and I had been told it could be stress related. This has led me to look for alternative therapies in order to combat stress and heal from the inside out. 
Stress is a constant part of our daily lives and can make an impact on our beauty. Stress can cause you to be more prone acne, early onset of wrinkles, dry skin and hair loss.

Look Who's Misrepresenting You: The Beauty Industry & WOC

Twitter is usually the place where I talk about reality tv (my guilty pleasure), repost interesting articles and check my notification, yesterday I was was @ mentioned in a petition  by @weareworthit2 that prompts companies such as coty & loreal to 'Sell cosmetic facial products on the high street for ethnic minorities in the UK'. @weareworthit2 or Miriam as I later found out is truly passionate about this issue (learn more here) and I've long since been bashing away at this topic. Some time ago I wrote an open letter to brands '50 shades of beige' where I vented my frustrations at the cosmetics on offer on the great British high street. This article led to my participating in the early days of Brown Beauty Talk a successful beauty chat and website for women of colour. So such a petition should be right up my street?
