Women Hair Loss Remedies from SheaMoisture, Nubian Heritage

Like men, women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss.  And as much as it pains me to admit it, I have watched my own hair thin in recent months.  It started when I noticed that my part down the middle was much wider than it used to be. And more and more I saw whole strands of hair coming out when I twisted and un-twisted it.

Fall is our favorite fashion season. We love wearing casual wardrobe staples like dark denim, leather boots, vintage-inspired blouses and chunky sweaters paired with wide-legged trouser pants, and of course, lots and lots of stripes.  Plus, pops of color, luxe coats and heeled booties are an easy way to spice up any autumn ensemble. And unlike other seasons, certain fall trends tend to stay en vogue perennially.
