I struggled with hair loss but now my hair is stronger than ever – here’s how

I struggled with hair loss but now my hair is stronger than ever – here’s how

As a South Asian girl, you might think hair oiling is embedded into my beauty routine. This is partly true, but only when I head to Bangladesh for long summers. When I’m at home in London, not so much.  Over the years, my beauty regime has become rushed and I always look for simple and quick fixes. But when my hair started to fall out rapidly, I knew I had to change my routine.  I ditched shampoos with sulphate in and had endless blood tests, but I still had no idea why I was losing so much hair.  I made hair oiling a regular part of my routine Hair loss I hated seeing the clumps of loose strands on my hairbrush, so I turned to my ancestors for inspiration and decided to add hair oiling back to my haircare routine, in the hope of saving my strands.  Hair oiling My first foray into oiling was with coconut oil; my mum would massage the oil into my hair and scalp, always reminding me, “This is better …

I dyed my hair ‘Old Money Blonde’ and it’s honestly my favourite shade yet – see photos

I dyed my hair ‘Old Money Blonde’ and it’s honestly my favourite shade yet – see photos

Trends approved by TikTok often converge in the realms of fashion and beauty. For instance, minimalistic fashion aligns with the ‘clean girl’ skin aesthetic, while last year’s head-to-toe brown ensemble trend coincided with chocolatey-hued nails. Similarly, the balletcore trend sparked the popularity of bow-adorned manicures. Now, the ‘Old Money’ fashion trend is poised to dominate the beauty scene, and hint: it involves blonde. At the start of the year, decadent brunette tresses were embraced by celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Iris Law, and Lily Allen. However, as we transition into spring and summer, A-listers are opting for blonde hues, (I can hear the silent cheers of my fellow blondes from here). What is the Old Money trend? “Old Money is essentially the inherited wealth look,” fashion stylist Georgie Gray previously told Hello! Fashion, “It’s giving boarding school just came back from the country. Linen chinos, a cashmere jumper over a striped shirt. Think the classic preppy aesthetic.” In layman’s terms…Sofia Richie. Derived from this vintage preppy aesthetic reminiscent of your grandfather’s wardrobe is the concept of ‘Old Money …

What Zendaya’s hair in “Challengers” misses reflecting about real tennis

What Zendaya’s hair in “Challengers” misses reflecting about real tennis

Hair is personal. The memories of my Ethiopian mother meticulously washing, parting and braiding my hair on a Sunday evening after church are still ever present in my adult mind. My butt still stings from sitting on pillows, attempting to mask the hardwood floors of our living room while she would work for hours, crossing three strands of my curly, long hair. She’d repeat the steps over and over until each braid nearly looked like it was crafted by God’s hands. What “Challengers” misses with Tashi’s hair is how it is used for the empowerment of Black women in tennis. That’s what hair means to Black women. We all have endless memories of getting our hair done and the people connected to it. This is why hair brings us a sense of community, empowerment and identity. It’s a defining physical characteristic for most people but for some Black women, it’s a way of life. Some of the most high-profile Black women also take great joy in the pageantry and transformation of their hair. Zendaya is one …

The Bald Truth: how hair loss is more traumatic than you think

The Bald Truth: how hair loss is more traumatic than you think

Hair might be biologically useless but it’s still a sign of youth and vigour in a society that prizes youth and vigour over almost everything. Someone with hair can, if they wish, change their entire personality in an instant. In the space of a few minutes, armed with nothing but a brush and some scissors, they can completely alter the information that they put out into the world about themselves. Are they serious? Sensitive? Really into perms? Hair can tell people that instantly. This does not apply to the bald. Once you become bald, you only have one personality open to you, and that is ‘man with scalp’. If baldness is a sign of anything, it is a sign that you have become less capable of change. It demonstrates that everything will be the same for us, every single day, until we die. Unless of course we go crazy and start experimenting with beards. Source link

There’s a saying that goes, ‘Like mother like daughter’, and when your Mum is none other than supermodel Cindy Crawford, we can totally understand why you’d be happy to follow in her footsteps. At last night’s Met Gala, Kaia Gerber opted for a bouncy blowout with a deep side part in a rich brown shade, and we couldn’t help but draw comparisons between the 22-year-old and her Mum.  © Taylor HillKaia Gerber is her Mum’s twin at the 2024 Met Gala READ: How to recreate Cindy Crawford’s iconic 90s blow dry MORE: Style lessons we’ve learnt from Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber While other celebs like Rita Ora opted for wet-look locks and intricate up-do’s, like Zendaya’s flower filled headpiece, Kaia opted for a classic 90’s supermodel blowout that was clearly inspired by Cindy.  She previously admitted; “Now that I’ve grown up a bit more,  I know I’m my own person even if I have the same hair as my mum.
