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.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
