African-American women and Alopecia

Alopecia in Black Women
Alopecia is a blanket term for all kinds of hair loss. Alopecia can be seen in woman and men, and in all nationalities. However, certain beauty habits and genetic factors cause black women in particular to be susceptible to more forms of hair loss. The good news is many of these forms of alopecia are not permanent and can be treated.


African-American hair is highly textured and dry. This causes it to be extremely susceptible to damage and breakage. Hair loss can start in the front near the hairline, the crown of the head, the sides of the head or all over the head. In addition, the hair loss can be patchy or thinning in appearance.


Factors that cause alopecia are stress, traction, chemical damage or illness. Stress can cause more hair than usual to enter into resting stage, which will cause them to fall out. At any given time at least 10 percent to 20 percent of our hair is in this resting stage; this is the hair we see in a brush. Stress causes a shock to the system, which makes more hair enter this stage than usual. This is called telogen effluvium. Another common cause of alopecia in black women is traction caused by wearing tight ponytails, extensions or extremely tight braids. Wearing tight hairstyles causes the hair to the tug from the follicle; over time, this causes damage to the follicle, which results in hair loss all round the hairline.
Hair loss due to using harsh chemicals, such as relaxers or perms, may cause burns on the scalp. These burns form scar tissue inside of the hair follicles causing permanent hair loss. Hair loss as a result of this is called cicatricial alopecia or scarring alopecia. Another form of alopecia that affects black woman is androgenic alopecia. Androgenic alopecia, also called male pattern hair loss, affects women who have entered menopause and those who have medical conditions that cause a shift in sex hormones.


Symptoms of traction alopecia are extreme thinning around the hairline and bald patches at the hairline. Symptoms of androgenic alopecia are diffused thinning all over the head or thinning hair on the crown. Symptoms of cicatricial alopecia are patchy hair loss, shiny smooth areas on the scalp and scarring or scalp damage. Symptoms of telogen effluvium include noticeable hair thinning.


In some cases, the cause of the hair loss must be taken care of before the hair can restore its growth. However, in cases of severe or localized hair loss, you may be told to use Minoxidil 2 percent topical treatment. This is an ointment, lotion or foam you use on the scalp every day to help restore hair growth. You can purchase this product over the counter under the name Rogaine. Another medication used to treat hair loss, in particular androgenic alopecia, is Tagamet. Although this medication is used to treat peptic ulcers, according to the American Hair Loss Association it has shown a powerful anti-androgen effect, which may work well in treating this form of alopecia.


African-American hair needs lots of moisture to prevent breakage and damage. Use moisturizing shampoo when washing to restore the hair’s natural oils, and do not wash your hair any more than three times in a week. In addition to this, moisturize your hair daily using natural oils such as almond, aloe, coconut or avocado. Do not wear you hair in tight styles. If you suspect you have an infection of the scalp such as ringworm, get it treated straight away to prevent excessive hair loss.

LaBron James flashes the world!

LeBron James gave viewers a whole different kind of show on Thursday night during NBA championship game four between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.
In an interview shot courtside, James adjusted his shorts and underwear, accidentally flashing the camera in the process. It was only for a split second, but long enough for thousands of screenshots to be taken. Don't know what all the hype is all about, it's just a penis??

Another baby bombshell! It turns out Dwayne's baby mama ALSO has two children with THIS sexy sitcom star!

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade just got engaged, but their extended family tree just keeps getting more complicated. And more star-studded.
On December 30, Dwyane confirmed that he had fathered a child with another woman during a time when he and Gabrielle were on a break. The next day, TMZ reported that his baby mama is a woman named Aja Metoyer, and that Aja named her son Xavier Zechariah Wade. The site added that Aja also has two other sons.
But that’s not even the half of it. Just hours later, TMZ updated its original story to say that sources tell them the father of Aja’s other children is none other than actor Damon Wayans Jr, who currently plays Coach on the Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl.
Like we said, this family tree is getting really complicated. In addition to New Girl, Damon starred as Brad on the just-cancelled comedy Happy Endings. He’s also the son of Damon Wayans, which makes him part of one of Hollywood’s best-known comedic families, tied to the likes of In Living ColorWhite Chicks, and The Scary Movie franchise.
TMZ adds that Damon is very involved in his kids’ lives. And considering that Dwyane also plans to be very involved in little Xavier’s life, we’d say there’s a very good chance that the two will cross paths. Is it just us, or is this starting to sound like the makings of a perfect reality show? We know we’d watch. Just tossing that out there...

Is Porsha Stewart Ready to Date in 2014? Her Answer May Surprise You!

With a brand-new year ahead and a fresh divorce in place, is Porsha Stewart ready to hit the Atlanta dating scene? According to a recent exchange on Twitter, The Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie is more than ready.

When one of her fans asked her if she thought she would be dating in 2014, Porsha responded, "absolutely lol." You can't get any more clear than that and the "lol" at the end almost implies that it would be ridiculous if she wasn't ready to jump back in the game. Even though it's been less than a year since the couple announced their split — or rather, since Porsha learned that Kordell was calling it quits via Twitter — we have to say that we're not entirely surprised to see Porsha moving on so fast. After all, she is young, beautiful, and loves to have fun, and deep down, she probably knows that Kordell wasn't the right guy for her. In fact, Porsha already dipped her toe back in the dating pool during 2013 when she let Steve Harvey set her up with an eligible bachelor.

 Even if the experiment resulted in just one night out, a girl's gotta start somewhere and it was a good first step for Porsha as far as getting her groove back.We sincerely hope that Porsha finds her perfect match in 2014, someone who respects her and allows her the freedom to be both a mother and a career woman. In the meantime, though, there's nothing wrong with Porsha enjoying the single life and playing the field. Here's to many first dates in 2014!

Divorces: Is Will Smith’s Matrimony-dom With Jada In Danger Because Of Freaky Pics With Becky Co-Star?

     Will Smith and his Focusco-star, beauty Margot Robbie, got too close at a New Orleans party last monthand their salacious photo booth pictures that were meant to stay private, proveit.

According to Radar Online reports:

The Australian actress nuzzled with JadaPinkett-Smith‘s hubby behind the curtain of the photo booth, suggestivelylifting her shirt and exposing her bra as Will lifted his and pressed his barechest against her.
    “He wasn’t acting like amarried man; he gave no signs that he was in a committed relationship,” aneyewitness of the scandalous scene told the magazine.

    “What kind of married manwould go into a photo booth with a 23-year-old girl and start to undress?”

    Jada wasn’t present at theparty held on Oct. 25, begging the question: Could this be the final straw intheir already troubled marriage?

    “When we did our audition together, we had a naturalchemistry,” Will previously said of his co-star. “I think it’s going to be alot of fun.”

    After weeks on the NewOrleans set together the two got intimately close at the October party inquestion, the magazine claims.

    “Once they pulled thecurtain back to take the pictures, they let their inhibitions run wild,laughing, hugging and nuzzling each other in the dark,” the eyewitness said.

    “Margot directed Willbefore each pose. First the ordered him to act like a gangster. Then shecovered her face with a masquerade mask and leaned into his chest. Next, sheasked Will to take a sexy picture with her, as she pulled up her shirt andexposed her lingerie for Will and the camera.

    “They were hanging allover each other, laughing like they were a new couple in love,” the sourcecontinued. “Will had just gotten done working for the day, so he definitely wasn’tintoxicated in any way — he knew what he was doing.”

    The scandalous coupledidn’t wait for their photos to be printed and Will’s assistant latermaterialized and confiscated them, Star says.

    “Will and Margot nevershowed up back on set or attended the night’s festivities with the rest of thecrew,” the insider revealed.

    “After they left theparty, they were gone all night.”

    To see the shocking andsexy photos of Will and Margot’s photo booth session, pick up the latest issueof Star magazine on newsstands everywhere Thursday.

Chilli Launches Petition to Stop Cyberbullying

TLC star Chilli launches a petition to stop cyber bullying due to online criticism of her son's sexuality

Here's the blog that caused Chilli to start this campaign and their apology to her 

Celebrity children under 18 are off limits to scrutinizing bloggers, says TLC's Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas via a Change.org petition.
The singer recently started the online campaign against cyberbullying, citing one site in particular for posting upsetting comments about her 16-year-old son. "I can't describe the anger I felt at my son being ridiculed continuously by MediaTakeOut.com," Chilli wrote."My son had no choice in who his mother was just like many other celebrity kids do not. It isn’t fair that our children have to deal with cyberbullying because of the career choice of their parents. Anyone under the age of 18 should not be ridiculed or targeted by MediaTakeOut.com or any other website." 
She added that it's not just a matter of pride, it's a health issue for the child and the community. "Kids who experience bullying are more likely to experience mental health issues that affect their ability to sleep, eating patterns, loss of interest in activities, health complaints, and decreased academic achievement. These issues can continue to persist in the victim through adulthood. In a minimal number of cases targets of bullying may retaliate by using extreme violence. For instance, 12 out of the 15 school shooters in the 1990s were victims of bullying. Victims of bullying are also 2 to 9 times more likely to consider committing suicide."
Fred Mwangagahunga, editor of MediaTakeOut, has since issued a public apology and a promised to "take action" against the staffer responsible for the posts and put in place "safeguards" to make sure it doesn't happen again.
"MediaTakeOut.com has a strict policy against criticizing children, whether children of celebrities or otherwise. It's not clear how an article that clearly violated our stated policy was published, but rest assured that I will get to the bottom of it," he wrote. "Our sincere apologies go out to Tron, Chilli, his family and anyone else that were offended by our comments." As of press time, the petition has over 2,000 signatures. Hats off to you momma!~ See this and other story's https://www.facebook.com/pages/HairConnections-Blog/256310311054838



I honestly don't know what to think about Love & Hip Hop. The last episode begins with Olivia Longott meeting Erica Mena soErica can apologize (is that what she's attempting?) for her behaviorat Yandy's party the following evening.She hadn't planned on being soconfrontational.Of course, then Erica starts going off on Liv for notdoing a favor for Rich Dollaz and making the recordwith her.Erica is sick of watching Rich do everything for Olivia whenshe gives him nothing in return…nothing but a paycheck!Does Ericaunderstand what it means to be a manager?She then starts warning Livthat her friendship with Rich is faltering, but Olivia assures Ericathat they've been best friends for years, and that isn't going tochange.Huffy that she can't change Olivia's mind about the song byjust trying to talk over her, Erica storms away.So much for thatapology, right?

Jen Bayer heads into the studio to visit with her friend Raqi Thunda.Raqi is Muslim, and she would like to get a woman's perspective on Consequence's religion. Jen has considered converting, but she wants their son to be able toexperience Christmas and Easter.Raqi is flabbergasted that the pairdidn't discuss their religious differences before having a childtogether, and Jen is in tears over the thought that she'll never bakeChristmas cookies with Caden.

Tahiry Jose isn't convinced that Joe Budden hasstopped relapsing.She thinks he's still using.They meet at church,and Joe is dressed like Professor Lasky from Saved By the Bell: TheCollege Years.She encourages him to see a drug counselor, but he sayshe doesn't need one.Joe now claims that he's clean, and he refuses tospeak to anyone…in fact, he thinks that now Tahiry's concern is just anexcuse so that she can stay in his life.Give me a break.I am so sickof his manipulative ways.

Cons wants to hear about Jen's conversation with Raqi. He needs her to immerse herself in Islam.Cons requires a Muslimhousehold, and he thinks Jen is spoiled…at least he doesn't cheat onher.What?She's floored.She's a lucky girl because her boyfriend isfaithful?Jen finally agrees to speak to one of Cons mentors who couldpotentially make her religious transition easier.

We finally see Yandy Smith and Mendeecees (althoughI am having a hard time given what someone said in the comments lastweek about him being an alleged child molester), and they are goingthrough a difficult time with baby Amir.After gettingback some test results, Yandy leaves Amir with her mother, and she andMendeecees head to the hospital to speak with a doctor.Amir has anobstruction that is causing issues with his kidneys, and he is going torequire surgery.Yandy is scared and heartbroken, and she's not sure ifshe wants her new baby undergoing surgery.

Jen and Cons are meeting with hisspiritual advisor at his Mosque.Jen gets teary pleading her case, butCons is worried that mixing Islam and Christianity will confuse Caden. The advisor informs Cons that he need not be so rigid, and he advisesthe couple to get married.Jen is thrilled at the prospect of hidingEaster eggs.


Amir is in surgery, and Yandy isbeside herself with worry.Mendeecees does a good job off talking herdown off the ledge.These women have low expectations…Yandy thanksMendeecees for coming with her to the hospital.Excuse me, but whereelse would he be?He needs to pull up his britches.

Raqi and Jen are having a girls' night at a local club, and Jen is excited to be out on the town.While Raqi gets a drink, Tahiry heads over to catch up with Jen.She introduces Jen to Rashidah Ali,and then the eye rolling commences when Raqi returns.Rashidah isexcited to finally meet the girl who is sleeping her way through therecord business.She asks Raqi about deejaying, and Raqi starts talkingsmack about Tahiry.Both Rashidah and Jen urge the ladies to standdown and for a hot second I think the women are going to be able to becivil.Poor Jen is way out of her element.Rashidah then calls outRaqi for working her way through the industry on her back.Hurlinginsults, Raqi walks off, with poor Jen running after her in disbelief. Perhaps she's as confused as I am about Tahiry's outfit.


Yandy is overjoyed when Amir's surgery is a success.Both she and Mendeecees believethat their prayers have been answered.He wants to celebrate bygetting Yandy pregnant with a baby girl.Creepy.Thankfully, Yandyisn't planning on having any more kids with Mendeecees out of wedlock,so he needs to step up to the plate.He assures her that he's got thatunder control.

The following day, Jen and Raqi arebreaking down the previous evening's events.Raqi is glad that Jen hadher back when she didn't necessarily have to follow her out of theclub.I think that she actually just needed a ride home!Raqi knowsall about Rashidah and her credit card scams andface-cutting ways.What?Who ARE these people?She also pitches anidea for a radio show to Jen.Jen is elated.She has been wanting toget back on the air…although Cons has gotten quite used to her stayinghome.
