How to grow your hair back

I never use to have a problem with my hair. For as long as I can remember it was always thick, shiny & bouncy….until it wasn’t. I lost half the volume of my hair & this is how I grew it back.

I am going to share something with you and please don’t take it lightly because this is something that many people struggle with. In all honesty, I feel very vulnerable sharing these “before” pics because it was a really difficult time for me (physically, mentally & emotionally). But I know this could help someone else who is struggling…so here goes.

It was in 2016 when I notice my hair falling out….in chunks! Every time I brushed or washed my hair, a handful would come out by the end of it.

It scared me because I didn’t know what was going on. I am someone who is so healthy & conscious of what I put in and on my body, this wasn’t supposed to be happening! I was embarrassed & angry.

It took 2 years & many blood tests before I realized what had been happening.

In the end, it boiled down to 2 things, which were both related. Stress & EBV (Epstein bar virus). The symptoms from these to elements often get labeled as Autoimmune disease.

My life had been a consistent build-up of stress up until I started noticing physical problems. And the stress was not just in one area of my life.

I had been competing as a bikini athlete for a solid 6 years. And even though I enjoyed it most of the time (I truly did), it was extremely taxing, physically & mentally. Extreme diets, a massive workload on the body & mental challenges of being in a very distorted & unhealthy industry places huge pressure on one. Some people aren’t phased by it but others are….and I was one of them.

On top of that, my relationship was very stressful at the time. I had moved out of my little apartment into a place that created more stress that could have ever imagined. I was working 3 jobs & I had started suffering from anxiety & panic attacks.

Looking back it should have been “obvious” but when you are in the middle of it, you can’t see the light through the noise.

My hair really suffered. I lost over half the volume of my hair! It became dull and lifeless & I found myself “hiding” it away.

I believe in divine intervention and it was through that, that I discovered I had EBV. It took me 15months before I was brave enough to step away from a very stressful environment & start to work on me.

Stress is a destroyer of health my friend. It is the root of so many diseases. Like with EBV, stress can be the trigger & fuel for it to spread. At the same time, stress alone doesn’t need a virus or disease to make it bad. It is destructive just as it is with no assistance needed. 

SO what did I do?

I stopped…..in all honesty, my body stopped & it forced me to stop in the process.

I started addressing the elements that were causing stress in my life. I started to eliminate the things that weren’t making me happy. I started to practice & live life consciously & in the moment. I let go of relationships that caused more pain & positivity.

I stopped punishing my body through exercise (because it’s something that many get into a habit of doing when competing in the fitness world).

My diet changed. Even though I was healthy I knew I had years of catching up to do due to depletion & stress I placed on it physically in early years (eating disorders, competing on a professional level, 18hr a week workouts, restrictive diets etc.

I began to eat consciously & I chose foods that were as close to nature as possible. I swapped over to an ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET which has had the most significant impact on my health. (You can read more about my BODY BREAKTHROUGH DIET here)

Another important element to my health & transformation has been the incredible Synerchi Organics Family.

You see, when your body is so depleted & empty, it needs a powerful assistant in the form of food to help it get back to where it must be. “Supplements” can do this for you but not just any. I place “supplements” in inverted commas because, in all honesty, the supplements should actually be a source of food & nutrition in itself.

Many supplements today cause more harm than healing to the body & that’s why it is vital you choose carefully.

Synerchi Organics is a company that cares about your wellbeing on all levels and it shows through the quality of their products & the love & care they have for their clients.

For the past 2 year I have consistently been taking their products (along with the other elements of transformation), focusing on healing & rebuilding my body & especially my hair.

It has paid off!

I am so grateful for their support & the incredible brand they have allowed me to be a part of.

So the take away from my story is this:

  • The body is an AMAZING machine that can heal itself but only WHEN it is given the right assistance & help.
  • You have to change ALL areas of your life if you want healing & transformation to happen.
  • Supplements are there to support the diet, not replace it. You have to change your diet & assist it with supplements.
  • Be PATIENT! This process of healing takes time. From the worst state my body was in, to where I am now, it has taken 2 and a half years!!! AND…..
  • It is a lifelong journey!!!! If you go back to the circumstances that cause stress & disease in the first place, your body will start to deteriorate again.

Here is a list of some of the Synerchi Organics products I use to supplement my diet:


OmegaMe Mix



Synapse Ignitor

Granola (I alternate between their 3 flavours)

Hemp hearts

Purple potato



There are MANY others but these are just a few of my favourites.
