The Most Unexpected Hair Growth Solutions You Can Try

The Most Unexpected Hair Growth Solutions You Can Try

When I entered college I decided to get a bob, partially to mourn my abruptly ended first relationship, partially to celebrate the fact I was entering a new chapter of my life. Two years later I was still struggling to tie my hair in a pony tail – my tresses were only shoulder length at the time. I remember how I tried all sort of products for natural hair regrowth and I also remember the lack or effect they had.

Fast forward some years later and I am looking for a way to stimulate my hair growth after having a haircut from a stylist with bad karma: since she cut my hair, 6 months ago, my tresses are the exact same length! Anyway, forget the bad karma lady, let’s focus on hair growth. I conducted an extensive research on hair growing boosters and “miracle-cures” over the internet and found interesting solutions or, at least, ideas. I am now able to present you the most unexpected hair growth solutions that exist online.

1. The Peanut Butter Trick

One of the ways to enhance your natural hair regrowth is using peanut butter as conditioner. This is not a crazy idea, as peanut butter contains vitamin E, which stimulates the hair follicle health and makes them stronger. You can make a mask or conditioner out of melted peanut butter and massage it into your scalp, or you can turn to hair regrowth smoothies, which are normal smoothies plus a healthy dose of peanut butter.

2. Massage Your Scalp For Hair Growth

A simple scalp massage can accelerate the hair growth, especially if you know how to do it. Massage is a great way to stimulate muscles and one muscle is linked to hair growth: the occipitalis. To massage your scalp the right way, place your fingers between the hairline and the eyebrows, then start massaging to the back of the head. Your ears should move as you do the massage.

This technique is promoted by many sites dedicated to men’s baldness. If we look at the science behind it, the massage stimulates the blood circulation, which, in turn stimulates the cell growth and hair follicles, so it should be legit, and even if the massage won’t turn you into a Rapunzel, you will feel amazing!

3. The Upside Down Trick

One of the most “interesting” tips in this list, the upside down is actually backed up by science when it comes to natural hair regrowth. The trick is to flip your hair upside down and brush it, keeping the position for four minutes. This method may seem crazy, but it’s actually legit: standing with your head upside down, your blood will rush to the head, including the scalp. With more blood comes more oxygen and nutrients, which stimulate the hair follicles, boosting hair growth. Match this tip with a scalp massage for better results.

4. The Cream Treatment For Hair Growth

This tip might not be attractive, but those who tried it swear by it. Looking on Makeup Alley, Monistat cream – yes, the yeast infection cream for “down there”! – has an amazing rating for hair growth. The reality is rubbing the cream on the scalp balances the natural flora and restores the normal hair growth pace.

5. The Smelly Remedy

There were times when people wanted to see blood, sweat, and tears to believe in the effectiveness of a remedy and the next tip for hair regrowth seems to fit the bill to the letter. Here is the onion juice for hair growth. You take four white onions, chop them, and boil them in a litre of water for couple of minutes. Strain the liquid and let it cool, then use it to rinse your hair after shampooing. Onions contain sulfur, which enhances the blood circulation and stimulates the production of collagen, thus promoting hair growth. Because onions have anti-bacterial and anti-fungi properties, they act like the yeast cream and balance the scalp flora.

These remedies are not appealing at all, but out there, in the online medium, there are many real women who attest their effectiveness in hair growth.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
