Pantone 2014 Colour of the Year Radiant Orchid

Trends chop and change just like the weather and keeping up with them is quite the challenge. But thanks to Pantone, we can always count on a special colour to keep us feeling trendy in more ways than just fashion and beauty.

When Pantone announced that the long anticipated colour of the year for 2014 would be none other than the stunning Radiant Orchid, we could not wait to seek out the many different ways in which this captivating, magical, enigmatic purple could be incorporated into our lives.

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading
