Kelly from Coolamon in New South Wales An Australian woman who has experienced hair loss on three separate occasions since 2010 has grown back her locks with the help of one vitamin - and shared incredible images of the results. Kelly, who is from Coolamon in New South Wales, started taking nutritionist Jessica Sepel's $44.99 Hair + Energy tablets in April after noticing some hair loss at the top of her scalp. 'The first time this happened was in 2010 and the second was in 2016. Both these times my hair fell out over a 12 month period,' the 46-year-old told FEMAIL. 'It started in a small patch but continued to fall out all over and became very thin and sparse.' In August 2019 Kelly saw a small bald spot forming again, which continued to spread across the scalp until March 2020. Doctors have put her hair loss down to an autoimmune response called Alopecia Areata but Kelly is concerned 'fad dieting' might be setting it off. 'I think of my lifestyle during

'Her crocodile tears are too late': Australians hit out at Annastacia Palaszczuk's emotional press conference - accusing her of 'faking' her pain after refusing to let a nurse go to her dad's funeral

Image
Australians have reacted with scepticism to Annastacia Palaszczuk becoming emotional on television in her first public appearance since refusing to let a  26-year-old nurse attend her father's funeral on Thursday. The Queensland premier welled up as she refuted allegations she was 'cold-hearted and nasty' for keeping families apart with draconian border closures while letting Hollywood stars and AFL players into the state.  Many Queenslanders were unconvinced by the premier's tears. Facebook user Charlie Sass called her a 'paid actress' and another named Nicole Smith said her 'crocodile tears' were too late.  Chris Johnson added: 'I bet she didn't cry before there was a public backlash,' and George Bacic said: 'Right now I'm ashamed to be a Queenslander.'

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: Why Olivia Cooke is cut out to be the leading lady

Olivia Cooke had no concerns about taking the leading role in a film populated almost entirely by men Olivia Cooke had no concerns about taking the leading role in a film populated almost entirely by men. She plays the title character in director Barnaby Thompson's belly-laugh-inducing black comedy Pixie, which opens on October 23. 'Ever since I started work, it's been a bit of a boys' club,' said the 26-year-old from Royton, who attended the Oldham Theatre Workshop from the age of eight. There are three other, much smaller, female roles, but that's it. Cooke was not fazed. 'I've inherently just been able to combat that quite easily,' she told me, 'to the point where the director, Barnaby, said to me: 'You're a bit scary, Olivia.' And I was like: 'OK.' ' She snorted. 'Boys are easy to get onside a lot of the time.' Olivia plays Pixie, a young woman on the lam in Ireland pursued by a host of characters who wish her

Police officers fear Britain will resemble the 'last days of Rome' this weekend amid a storm of decadent pre-lockdown parties.      Britons have promised to run riot and enjoy one last knees-up with friends before Boris Johnson's stringent new coronavirus restrictions come into force on Monday.  The new rules mean groups of more than six people can be broken up by police, who will have the power to hand out £100 fines. Many are having to cancel parties after warnings of a rapid increase in infections among people in their teens, 20s and 30s - but fears are now rising that some young people will take this weekend as an opportunity to run wild and indulge in decadence not seen since the collapse of Europe's first great empire.     One officer, based in the north east of England, told the Telegraph: 'We are worried this weekend is going to be like the last days of Rome.  'If people think they are not going to be allowed to go out and enjoy themselves for the next f
