I was studying an article on thinning hair, well of course because it is an issue close to home :) however as I read through the article I realized why I left the Beauty Industry. As much as I enjoyed making women feel beautiful outwardly, I was very interested in her inner self, which by the way is the true beauty of a woman. I was at the time on my own personal quest for the answers to life and where the true joy was in life when I discovered that being true to myself didn’t require me to lie to others by doing to them what I knew to be harmful. I can’t put it into words but I just stopped without really having a plan of what to do next. People weren’t really ready to give up the lies in exchange for what was the option. I think I was in that group too. Could I continue doing what I was doing without informing my clients of what was in their best interest? Could I jeopardize my revenue in their best interest? It was a difficult decision that changed my life and my families forever but it put me personally on a quest towards a better me and tremendous challenges to be true to myself at great costs. I am grateful that my family still loves me and they have become beautiful people in spite of everything by the grace of God! I am grateful now to discover that just making that choice has put me in position to discover I spared myself the misery of knowing I contributed to the lack of wellness to many women because of my desire to be successful financially. Now I can speak from a professional perspective that, as women we have to ask ourselves if we are really willing to die for beauty, literally. We have to personally research our journey in wellness for ourselves and our families. We are the first teachers to the next generation; ask yourself, what kind of teacher will you be? What will you pass on, tradition or knowledge based on research findings? It is time for women to take their rightful place in our society; at the right hand of our all intuitiveness (link to all knowledge, All Powerful, All- Knowing source of the Universe, by your choice of Names) and make the difference in someone’s life! Let it begin with me and maybe you can Glimpse into your future!

Thinning Hair in Women: Warning Sign of Underlying Health Issues
Author: Barbara Minton, Natural Health Editor
Hair products containing toxic chemicals promote hair loss
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is the dominant ingredient in almost all shampoos sold in traditional outlets such as supermarkets, drugstores and discount centers. In addition to having toxic effects on your immune system, SLS has been shown to corrode hair follicles and impede hair growth. It has been blamed for many cases of hair loss. The Material Safety Data Sheet provided by the U.S. government says exposure to SLS can lead to burning, coughing, wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, nausea and vomiting. The American College of Toxicology says SLS stays in the body for up to five days and maintains residual levels in the heart, liver, brain, and lungs.
Over-treated hair is another cause of hair loss in women. Hair dyes, permanents, and relaxers do serious damage to the hair and scalp whether they contain lye or not. They are made with toxic chemicals that must be detoxified by the liver, and are identified by the immune system as foreign invaders. Thus health of the liver and the immune system are compromised by use of these products. When the liver is busy trying to detoxify an onslaught of foreign chemicals, estrogen metabolism may not be properly completed and breast cancer may be promoted. An immune system busy fighting off an invasion of foreign chemicals may not be able to prevent infection or identify and destroy abberant cells. Damage from dyes and relaxers can only heal when those potions are no longer used on the hair.
