"I am a proud Bajan who also feels a close connection to Africa, and its people. I've had the pleasure, and the privilege, to spend time on the continent and those experiences never leave you. Now, being able to bring Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin to eight African countries and then hopefully more in the future— means so much to me." – Rihanna

RIHANNA SET TO LAUNCH FENTY BEAUTY & FENTY SKIN ACROSS AFRICA THIS MAY #FENTYAFRICA

RIHANNA SET TO LAUNCH FENTY BEAUTY & FENTY SKIN ACROSS AFRICA THIS MAY& #FENTYAFRICA (PRNewsfoto/Fenty) LAGOS, Nigeria, May 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- When Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty in 2017 in an unprecedented 17 countries with vision of inclusivity and global reach at its core, she sought to help "everyone feel beautiful and recognized, no matter their race, ethnicity, culture or personal style." Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after trying to find products that worked across all skin types and tones. With Rihanna's mandate of inclusivity, Fenty Beauty offers a wide range of products for traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. Fast forward to 2020, Rihanna launched her clean, vegan and eco-friendly skincare line, Fenty Skin, and amplified her unwavering mission to provide simple and effective beauty solutions for all. As a result, she ignited a beauty movement and "a community that supports and uplifts each other." Rihanna created both Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin with a global vision in mind to reinforce the "Beauty For All" notion. It is this brand ethos that makes Rihanna's decision to expand her Fenty brands to Africa a momentous milestone and natural next step.

Editors Note Well it's life after a pandemic, what the heck does that mean? Well, some people want things to be the way they were pre-pandemic. For me... I'm running my business tighter, realizing what I want, to be clearer about what I Don't Want! There's been a shift in how I'm approaching life. Other's opinion of me & what I'm doing are just that, their opinion. I'm living in the moment, loving myself more which I believe will open me to Love You & Life More.

The Transformation Factory Secures Deal For $600k on ABC's Shark Tank WELLINGTON, Fla., May 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Appearing on the season 13 finale of ABC's Shark Tank, The Transformation Factory is the first brand to feature sea moss in Shark Tank history and is the only brand to receive a deal on the season finale. Initial offers from Kevin O'Leary and Barbara Corcoran were turned down in favor of a dual offer from Kevin Hart and Mark Cuban for $600,000.

Sea moss, also known as Irish Moss, is a species of red algae. The marine plant, whether raw, powdered, or blended into a gel, has been linked to numerous health benefits. Including better gut health, reducing the risk of heart disease, and supplementing nutrients and minerals. The Transformation Factory is a black-owned and operated business founded by entrepreneur Alexiou Gibson. As a child, Gibson enjoyed cultural food while growing up in the Bahamas. His grandmother would make him the most delicious treats daily. At age 21 Gibson weighed 500 pounds. "Like most teens, I believed that I was invincible," Gibson shares. "I thought I would be fine and had time to get healthy later. It wasn't until my doctor told me that I wouldn't live to see my 30th birthday that I really understood how serious I needed to be about living." Gibson started college and was immersed in a positive environment where he excelled and pivoted into leadership. His mind shifted and thus began the journey of wanting to meet the best version of himself. He started eating healthier and exercising twice a day in 3-hour intervals and incorporated sea moss in his diet to transform his life for the healthier and better. Over the past 10 years, Gibson has been recognized for his leadership, entrepreneurship, and community involvement and is the recipient of numerous awards, achievements, and recognitions. No stranger to overcoming adversity, Gibson's perseverance and dedication to his passions led him to an internship with N.A.S.A and numerous awards, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Award, Apple Innovation Award, Buick Engineering Award, Global Citizen Award, and Legacy Miami - Under 40 Award and Legacy South Florida Trailblazer of the Year 2022.

STEPHEN CURRY DROPS SURPRISE 2974 MERCH DURING NBA FINALS GAME #4 Curry Teased the Exclusive Hoodie During his Pre-Game Tunnel Walk, Available Only for 2974 Collection NFT Holders Allowing Fans to Connect Outside the Metaverse With the help of his 2974 Discord channel, this exclusive merch was inspired by some of Curry's most prized possessions - his tattoos. Specifically, Curry's wrist tattoos tell a story of his drive to be better in basketball and in life, which is reflected through the hoodie and hat artwork. The 2974 Collection will take a snapshot on Monday, June 13th at 11:59 pm EST to lock in all holders at that time. These holders will have access to a gated merchandise store on FTX US's NFT platform on June 15, closing ten days later on June 24. Customers must hold their 2974 Collection NFTs in a FTX digital wallet and will be notified via personalized codes prior to the store opening. Holders from NY will be notified of specific instructions via the 2974 Collection NFT Discord channel. Additionally, collection holders who own multiple NFTs will receive merch discounts based on the number of NFT's they hold.

At the time the store opens, customers will be able to purchase the hoodie and hat combo equipped with unique packaging and a personalized note from Curry himself. In December 2021, Curry dropped a surprise NFT collection to commemorate breaking the all-time NBA three-point record during the Golden State Warriors game against the New York Knicks. Curry's NFT was released in a quantity of 2,974 in honor of the record-breaking number, with each NFT representing all of the threepointers he made throughout his career and 100% of Curry's profits going to Eat. Learn. Play., Stephen and Ayesha Curry's Oakland-based non-profit that benefits community members throughout the Bay Area. The 2974 Collection NFT has since produced over $4.4 Million in trading volume on the FTX.US NFT platform, distributed over 100 NFT memorabilia giveaways,

and is on the cusp of an IRL birthday celebration with holders this summer. This exclusive merch is yet another example of how Curry continues to surprise NFT holders with gifting moments beyond the Metaverse.

More information and access to the 2974 Collection NFT can be found at 2974sc.com and by following @2974collection on Twitter.

Hair Loss con't In a new editorial on MerckManuals.com, Wendy S. Levinbook, MD, Hartford Dermatology Associates, breaks down six of the most common misconceptions about hair loss – along with the facts people should know. Misconception #1 - Alopecia is a Specific Medical Condition Alopecia is simply the medical term for any type of hair loss. It is not a specific medical condition. There are many specific types of alopecia. The most common is androgenetic alopecia, which is related to aging. By age 80, more than 70% of men and 50% of women will have this form of alopecia. Misconception #4 - Nothing Can Prevent Hair Loss There are a wide range of products, vitamins and therapies that claim to prevent or even undo hair loss – often with a hefty price tag attached. The reality is, it's difficult to regain hair that's already been lost in most cases. Slowing or stopping hair loss depends on the cause of the hair loss, but there are some products that can be effective if used consistently and effectively. Misconception #5 - Washing Your Hair Too Much Can Cause Hair Loss Some people are concerned that washing their hair too often can cause hair loss. This is not true. Additionally, hats do not cause hair loss and in fact can be an effective way to protect the scalp from the sun. Misconception #6 - Hair Loss is Only a Cosmetic Issue The psychological impact of hair loss should not be overlooked or minimized. Our society places a high value on appearance, and hair is closely tied to beauty standards across many cultures. Individuals struggling with hair loss should pay close attention to mental health issues that may come with it. Often, seeking support from loved ones or others going through similar challenges can help. At the same time, hair loss is not always a purely cosmetic challenge. It can be indicative of more serious issues, including lupus, hormonal disorders, fungal infections, or nutritional deficiencies. It can also be caused by physical stressors, psychological stress, or an injury. Read more about hair loss in Dr. Levinbook's editorial on MerckManuals.com.
