How this brave cancer survivor grew back her hair

How this brave cancer survivor grew back her hair


You may not have heard of Yasmine Ryback, but you’ve most likely seen her. She’s appeared in numerous commercials for big brands such as Starbucks and PetSmart, as well as print advertisements for Audi and Target. Yasmine is beautiful and elegant with a genuinely heart-warming smile.

But over a year ago, Yasmine’s smile momentarily went a little dimmer when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and embarked on a battle for her life.

“I discovered a lump in my breast initially during a yoga class lying down on a mat. I would get painful jabs in my cleavage area when applying pressure. I touched the sensitive area and discovered a large mass,” Yasmine told Our Skin Cares.

Her hair was her signature look

We first came across Yasmine’s story on YouTube. Yasmine was bravely documenting her battle with breast cancer, but one particular video really broke our hearts.

Yasmine had just completed her first round of chemotherapy, and her hair had begun falling out in clumps. As the chemotherapy cocktail was making its way through Yasmine’s body to fight cancer, it took her gorgeous hair as collateral.

And after nearly a week of just constant hair shedding, she decided that enough was enough — it was time to shave her head. Yasmine's hair was part of her signature look — it was long, dark, flowing, and thick. But even with a shaved head, Yasmine’s beauty shined through. 

Regrowth and the road ahead

We were so moved by her bravery to not only face this terrible disease head-on but to also share her struggle with the world.

Once Yasmine completed her chemotherapy treatments, we knew she’d have a long road ahead to start feeling like herself again — including regrowing her stunning hair. We sent Yasmine a Hair La Vie care package filled with some of our all-natural products and the Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins.

Equipped with the right tools, we were confident that Yasmine could regrow her signature luscious hair and keep it healthy. And when we saw Yasmine’s video talking about her Hair La Vie products, we were thrilled to hear that we were able to help her with her hair regrowth phase.

Formulated with nutrition in-mind


Our Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins were designed to infuse hair follicles with important nutrients to boost hair growth and strengthen strands. The secret is in our formula, which is made with 20 potent, natural ingredients, including saw palmetto, organic kelp, horsetail herb, and 5,000 mcg of biotin. There are also no harmful synthetic fillers, such as magnesium stearate or titanium dioxide.

Combined with our products, supplements, and just general good hair care, in just a few months since finishing chemotherapy Yasmine didn’t have any bald spots and was able to grow several inches of hair. Although it was not her long, gorgeous mane, she was rocking a very cute pixie cut.
