Do you find you shed more than your dog? Or maybe your shower drain is perpetually clogged? Hair loss is not a fun topic but is something that affects almost all of us. It’s good to note that doctors say losing 100 strands a day is nothing alarming, but who’s counting? If you feel like your strands aren’t growing back as fast as they should, it’s time to do some damage control.
Hair loss comes in many forms, the most common being Androgenetic Alopecia which is hereditary in both men and women, Involutional Alopecia comes as we get older and air follicles no longer actively growing. Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disease, leads to patchy hair loss, while Scarring Alopecia often leads to irreversible hair loss. It’s good to note that there are many different forms of balding, and some are rare whilst others are common and treatable. The first step is to identify what might be causing your hair to fall out.
What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss is one of those things that can be triggered by almost everything or even multiple factors, so some detective work is needed to find the route of your troubles. The good news is, hair loss doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a gradual process. That means you’ll have ample time to course-correct. Balding manifests in many forms, and it’s usually your body giving you a sign. Here’s what might be trigging your hair to thin out.
Stress
Stress affects us all in different ways, but one significant side effect for prolonged stress is indeed hair loss. People suffering from the likes of PTSD often exhibit excessive hair loss. It’s a vicious cycle because seeing your hair fall out in clumps can also be a source of stress.
Genetics
You may have heard the term male pattern baldness before, and unfortunately, this one is pretty much unavoidable. If it runs in your family, you’re left praying you didn’t inherit it. Your genetics may mean that you lose your hair over time as you age, or all at once far too soon.
Tight Hairdos
You might love Ariana Grande’s signature look, but it’s not all glamour. A tight ponytail or hairdo worn repeatedly starts to really pull on the roots of your hair. If you’ve ever gotten a headache for typing your hair too tight, that’s a good sign you may be causing some damage. Even getting extensions puts a bit too much pressure on your hair and can eventually lead to a receding hairline.

Medicine
Certain drugs can cause hair loss, particularly medication like blood thinners, anti-depressants, cholesterol medicine. It’s just an unfortunate side effect. Always consult a doctor before taking any medication and discuss alternatives that can prevent further hair thinning.
Deficiencies
Rapid loss of hair is a good indication that your health might not be up to scratch. Your body is sending you a pretty big signal here! Balding can happen if you have a protein deficiency, or if you lack minerals like vitamin B and iron. A healthy, well-rounded diet is vital for hair growth, while a hair mask can also help with the damage.
Immunity
If you’ve had a history of low immunity, you’ve likely experienced some hair loss. Those prone to catching colds, flu, and other seasonal allergies may shed more hair than others.
Hormones
Our hormones affect practically every part of our body, and in this case, it affects how our hair grows. Hair falling out is an indication that your hormones may have shifted, it could be linked with the start of menopause, a thyroid issue, pregnancy, or even from taking birth control. Once your hormones go out of whack, your hair also starts to.

Balding can be scary, but here’s an exciting thought, what if the remedy was in your kitchen? Crises averted right? All the best natural formulas are just waiting in your cabinets and fridge. Here are some of the most effective home remedies to soothe your scalp and prevent rampant hair loss.
Apple Cider Vinegar + Warm Water
Your hair loss might be the symptom of clogged follicles. The pores in your head can quickly get filled with dirt, by pollution or just from the natural oils your head produces. That stops all the right nutrients from reaching your hair and keeping your hair healthy optimal. Forget using apple cider vinegar for your salad; it’s a super-effective way to flush out your follicles! Grab yourself a bowl of lukewarm water, and pop a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into it. As you wash your hair with the liquid, massaging your scalp slowly.
Green Tea + Warm Water
Green tea seems to be the magic medicine for just about everything, and it might just save your hair! The vitamins and minerals in green tea make an excellent regrowth treatment that you can do at home. If you’re willing to part with a few of your teabags, steep three of them in two cups of hot water. Wait for it to cool to a comfortable temperature, then slowly pour it over your hair and massage as you go. Rinse thoroughly after.
Avocados + Olive Oil + Lemon
Great for guacamole, and great for promoting hair growth. This little recipe may sound tasty, but it’s actually going to soothe your dry scalp and give you a boost of biotin - a vitamin responsible for hair and nail growth. Scoop out the flesh of a ripe avocado, mix with a tablespoon of olive oil and a dash of lemon juice. This concoction makes a lavish hair mask for one, slather onto your roots and hair for about 20 minutes before rinsing off.
Eggs + Olive Oil + Honey
Eggs are packed with great nutrients, including sulfur, phosphorous, and protein, all of which help with hair loss. This little hair spa treatment will leave your locks looking glossy and feeling healthier. Grab yourself an egg, a teaspoon of olive oil, and a dab of honey. Mix well before applying to your roots and tips. Leave for 20 minutes before rinsing out with a mild shampoo.

Onion Juice
You may have shed a few tears over your hair loss, so what’s one more teary session? This may seem like an unlikely candidate but onion juice delivers all the good stuff your hair craves. Sulfur, Vitamins E, C, and B complex all contribute to thicker, shinier, and longer locks. You’ll want to grind an entire onion and squeeze out all its juices, then take some cotton pads and soak it in the liquid. Once absorbed, dab the cotton pads across your scalp before massaging for 10 minutes. You’ll want to wash your hair after to avoid that onion smell!
Coconut Milk
Delicious creamy coconut milk is just brimming with proteins that help hair grow faster. All you have to do is crack open a tin, and apply it to your hair. Try using a hairbrush to make sure it covers each and every strand of hair. After applying, wrap your head in a towel for 20 minutes before rinsing off. 
Easy right? And all of these can be found in our pantry! But the hair care doesn’t stop there, along with treating your tresses to some TLC, here are a few tips and tricks to keep your hair happy. Regardless of if you’re dealing with hair thinning, balding, or a receding hairline.

  • Get a good night’s rest.
  • Brush your hair regularly to keep the blood flowing. Use a wide-tooth comb to massage your head.
  • When washing your hair, avoid hot water as this can cause hair loss. Opt for cold or lukewarm water.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Opt for foods that are rich in protein, like fish, spinach, and yogurt
  • Avoid heat treatments for your hair, as well as dryers, curlers, and straighteners.
  • Go for regular scalp massages to promote hair growth.
  • Avoid chemical-heavy products and opt for natural ones. Look out for parabens.
  • Take some you time. Destress your mind, body, and soul, and your hair will thank you.

Another beautiful Hyaluronic acid serum! I am a fan of Farsali products and this is no exception 😍❤️ MOISTURE REPLENISHING SERUM QUENCH by Farsali ✨💧 fARSÁLI - Quench I found it similar to Glowrecipe one in performance and details while the consistency is a little different. It's a hyaluronic acid serum that helps to replenish moisture in the skin by using a unique complex of low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. The staggered molecular weights of the Hyaluronic Acid are designed to help promote multi-depth hydration on both the skin's surface and in the epidermis. Enriched with replenishing Provitamin B5, the skin's elasticity appears improved as well as feeling and looking softer. ❤️INGREDIENTS: 💧Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight, versatile hydrator that attracts and binds 1,000 times its weight in water. Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is such a tiny molecule, it's able to penetrate deep into your skin and replenish moisture from within. 💧Hyaluronic Acid High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, due to the larger molecule size, this Hyaluronic Acid sits on top of the skin, forming an invisible shield that traps moisture. This helps reduce moisture loss from stress, heat, extreme cold and environmental factors. 💧Vitamin B5 Vitamin B5 a naturally moisturizing form of Vitamin B5, otherwise known as Panthenol. This silky vitamin helps replenish skin for a soft and supple appearance. The best part is it's Ingredients list, it's only 7 Ingredients and the formulation is so good that I feel I have been sleeping on this product for this long. It feels so soft and smooth on skin, goes on silky, smooth and doesn't feel heavy. And after few hours skin feels super hydrated and plump. I found this serum to be working the best for dehydrated skin condition. Especially in the colder months. Dehydration leads to broken barrier and dullnes, this targets these issues! It's only 24$ which is a win in my opinion! Their opther products which are my favorite are a bit more expensive than this one! I love it! It goes on perfect under makeup as well! Would you like to try this?
Best Hyaluronic acid on the market!! 🍑😍

I recently won this Plum Plump Hyaluronic serum by Glowrecipe in @cherie New Beauty Buys Giveaway!! ❤️ GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum I am a huge fan of Hyaluronic acids especially for Oily/Acne prone skin types and dehydrated skin. Hyaluronic acid. To the less beauty savvy, it may sound like something you don't want to put anywhere near your face (we all took chemistry lessons at school, just sayin...). But, what if we told you that hyaluronic acid actually holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin? Yes. It's actually a gooey substance that's naturally produced in our skin mainly in skin tissues and eye area which works as humectant meaning it draws moisture from surrounding into the skin and helps it retain the moisture by eliminating Trans epidermal water loss!! It's truly amazing and works at targeting many skin concerns mainly aging, dehydration and dullness and if used correctly it gives you that healthy plump looking skin. 🍑Now, What is this product?? Combined with vegan collagen and vegan silk protein, this lightweight, oil-free serum deeply hydrates dry, dehydrated skin and diminishes the appearance of visible fine lines for healthy, bouncy, youthful skin. 🍑 Key Ingredients: ✨Plum (3 types): Three antioxidant-rich plums - Kakadu, Illawarra, and Burdekin - hydrate, nourish, and rejuvenate skin instantly and overtime, and work together with hyaluronic acid for intense, juicy hydration and a youthful appearance. ✨Hyaluronic Acid (5 weights) A powerful blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acids (ultra-low, low, medium, high, ultra-high molecular weights) that deeply hydrates layers of skin for plump, bouncy skin. Multi HA has multiple molecular weights in one ingredient, and forms a 3-D sponge like film to hydrate each layer of your skin Tremella HA is obtained from fermentation of Tremella mushroom and is super high molecular level to reduce moisture loss on your skin’s surface Flashfill HA is a next-gen of HA that improves the bioavailability of the Hyaluronic Acid in the skin and lasts longer in the skin Bio HA is a powerful HA with moisturizing properties to help water retention ✨ Vegan Collagen & Silk Protein Potent, plant-based powerhouse ingredients that help support a healthy-looking skin barrier by guarding against free radicals and hydrating skin. ✨Vitamin B5 Helps to repair skin by hydrating, soothing, and rejuvenating, resulting in a healthy skin barrier. This serum performs so well on skin, it's not so sticky yet enough sticky to work as a good primer under makeup. It has made my skin look plumper and youthful in just two uses! I am using it consistently to see how my skin responds to it and I love it so far! As mentioned above, its silky formula and texture makes it really unique for a good 5 weight HA serum! Have you tried this serum??
Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺
Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺
I have dark circles and fine lines and I look for eye creams that target these concerns. Recently I won this Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum in Cherie Cheerleader prize!! INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum I'm glad to have put this to a test! I liked the liquidy thick serum consistency and the milky texture of this product. Unlike many other eye creams it's great for absorption in under eye area. I was expecting it to work amazing for me but sadly it did not! This is what the product details are: What it is: A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness Formulation: Serum Highlighted Ingredients: - Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🍁 My Experience: I experienced it's great for people with puffiness and under eye bags. It slightly flattened my under eye area but for my major concerns like dark circles and fines lines this isn't working as effectively as my other favourite eye creams do. This certainly doesn't mean it won't help my concerns in the long run or it may brighten my under eye areas slightly if I use it consistently. With my other eye creams such as Nuria eye cream and The Ordinary Caffeine solution I see difference in my dark circles in just little than a week but I gave this more time than that to see if it works for my specific concerns and it did not do well. I will post an update of 5-6 weeks of use!
☁️Coco Cloud shave & Blueberry Kush scrub💨
☁️Coco Cloud shave & Blueberry Kush scrub💨
These 2 Truly products were a hit & a miss for me. *☁️Before trying Coco Cloud, I was just using an unscented Dove soap bar to shave🪒 🧼— I know. I was really stuck in a rut for years-even though it wasn’t really working for me (including Venus razors) I think I was scarred by a few 2000s scented drugstore shaving creams that irritated my legs so much! 🍦🥥TRULY - Coco Cloud Luxury Shave Butter $20/4 oz What’s cool is the one I have is almost entirely Organic (only 2/10 ingredients aren’t & they’re Vitamin E & Coconut Oil (last on list) Now I say the one that I have, because I could not find a matching set of ingredients for this product on Ulta.com, Truly’s own website, or this jar (ordered from Truly) I included all 3 on the last slide. I remember seeing it on Ulta, but ended up purchasing on Truly. I wouldn’t have added to cart if I saw that ingredient list though! All 3 are wildly different, & that’s a huge problem, because although I found this product a total game changer, how can I confidently recommend it to you guys if one says it has retinol in it! (I have zero retinol experience) I’d really like to repurchase this with confidence, & it could be a mistake on the site, but Ulta’s differs so much from the product I received as well.. 💻Truly had responsive customer service before, so I’m gonna email them to ask... I might not have found out these discrepancies, but I didn’t know what “Organic Bath Whip” meant as the 1st ingredient, I think it means Glycerin & Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, but not sure how that could be organic? My experience: The Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vanilla Extract, White Tea & Argan Oil, ARE ALL ORGANIC! The only other 2 ingredient are Vitamin E & Coconut Oil. 🥛I love that it’s naturally fragranced with real Vanilla!(personal fav) It smells so good, like vanilla coconut milk! It creates a nice froth & makes shaving super comfortable. Immediate results for me! No more razor bumps & irritated pores! I use the TRULY - Mini Gold Spoon + Satin Pouch ($5 each) to apply & keep sanitary, they’re perfect! Used w/: Venus Gillette - Venus Spa Breeze Razor With Refills Usually $8-$15 No complaints with the handle part, I’ve had the same one for years. Gillette - Venus Spa Breeze Women's 4 Razor Blade Refills Usually $15-$24 I’m switching to a more eco-friendly option, but it’s back-ordered. These don’t hold up for that many shaves before I have to toss them. Like 2, maybe 3- so the price adds up & the soap strips probably aren’t great. TRULY - Blueberry Kush CBD Body Scrub $33/6 oz with 300 mg CBD This product arrived pretty melted/separated & leaking. It was nicely refunded, but my rating is purely on how I feel about the formula itself: It smells very strong of candy, but once you start using it with water it smells kinda weird, like grass? Also leaves a yellow dye-like residue?
