I am originally from Jamaica. I have two adorable children and I am a mental health nurse, I live in London and my name is Vicktesha Cunningham.

Three months after the birth of my daughter in 2019 I started noticing that my hair was falling out in excess. I had no hair at all at my temples and my hair became extremely thin. This really affected my confidence and what made it worse was that I couldn't find a natural solution. So out of frustration, I started to formulate my own infusions, until I found a natural solution that worked really well. Thus, Vtessia cosmetics was inspired by my experience of postpartum hair loss, to help other women enhance and embrace their natural beauty with confidence.

You're not alone. Speak to someone about it - don't suffer in silence. Also ensure that you continue to treat and care for your hair to aid growth, don't give up on it or on yourself.

I have learnt a lot of lessons, but the two biggest lessons I have learned are: 1) Always have a contingency plan, because the forecast can always change 2) Utilise the benefits of outsourcing to reduce burn out and increase impact/profit. As they say, two heads are always better than one.

Omg! It is really difficult! But I would say; know when to pause, celebrate every win and most importantly, turn up the volume on your self care, because attending to self care and taking time for you is a must.

The reason WHY I started Vtessia keeps me grounded, and keeps the wheels turning; knowing that my business is there to support and help others.

Yes several, but I am not a quitter! So I keep knocking on those doors, and improving to ensure that I hit the jackpot.

I've never been asked this question before, but I would tell myself: never procrastinate, pursue my dreams and don't underestimate the power of a solid network.

I cannot do without exercising and meditating on the things I want the universe to bring my way - I'm a real believer in manifesting and being grateful.

I don't want to say much, as there are many obstacles, but I will be introducing a new haircare shampoo and conditioner to the Vtessia range by the end of this year, so watch this space, and follow me on Instagram for regular updates! @vtessia.cosmetics
