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.

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

Every mature relationship has had a less-than-memorable anniversary. Maybe one of you forgot, or both of you got busy with work, kids, family issues, or something else. Whatever happened, the day came and went without fanfare. And neither of you seemed to notice or much care.

But for the health of any relationship, it’s important to make important days feel special. Anniversaries offer the wonderful opportunity to relive beautiful memories, practice gratefulness for your partner, and to show your love and strengthen your bond. Make this year’s anniversary with your significant other something special  — one that will bring you closer together.

The best way to create a memorable anniversary is to do something new and different together as a couple. Stretch yourselves a bit.

While boredom can silently kill a relationship, new experiences reinforce the shared bond you already have and create strong new memories. Just think back to the most significant memories you have right now with your spouse and imagine what new ones you can create!

While you enjoy your chosen anniversary activity, be sure to keep a positive attitude and make your partner happy too on that day. Leave all arguments and day to day detail behind. Just celebrate your relationship. Whether you’re going to spend the day together at home, getting away, or having a wild and crazy new experience together, you can have your best anniversary yet!

If You’re Staying In

  1. Spend an evening with no technology, just the two of you and maybe a board game. It’s hard to keep ourselves away from our computers and smartphones long enough to have a meaningful conversation. Make a rule not to use your tech and you’ll rekindle your relationship!
  2. Make wine or beer together. If you enjoy drinking together, this is a fun activity to try together. Just remember to buy the necessary equipment ahead of time.
  3. Learn something new about each other. With an open mind, try asking some of the New York Times’ 36 questions that lead to love. They’ll help spark intimacy and will lead to some really honest moments.
  4. Have a lazy day. Breakfasts in bed, spend all day in bed talking and napping. Follow breakfast with champagne and dessert! If you feel like getting more active, cook together or play some games. Here’re some simple breakfast ideas for you.
    • Learn to dance at home. This is best for those active couples who work out together and also enjoy learning something new together. Just go on Youtube to find any music with dance tutorials and learn together.
    • Visit model homes or open houses and plan your dream home.
    • Have a special dessert – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Having an unusual treat makes a day feel extra special. If you want to make the dessert really special, try these tasty dessert recipes.
    • Create a playlist of your favorite songs as a couple. Choose songs that tell your story, and songs that you bonded over throughout your relationships. Here’re some love songs ideas for your inspirations.
      • Write your love story. Write it together or ave each of you write your own and then bring them together in an interesting, both sides of the story format.
      • Get a fondue pot. Fondue is a fun way to enjoy melted cheeses (for savory items) and melted chocolate (for sweeter treats).
      • Decorate! Turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply with flowers. The different ambience will immediately change the feel of your home and make it feel like a staycation.
        • Talk about the future together. It might sound simple and everyday, but imagining how you want to spend your retirement together, or planning future trips can be exciting and romantic.

        If You Want to Get Away

        1. Take a day trip together to your favorite spot. If you live in a city, it can be incredibly refreshing to get away for an afternoon and drink in the outdoors.
        2. Go on a scenic drive and stop at a wine and cheese bar. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have lots of options where you live, try a brewpub. There are tons of small craft breweries with fantastic food options too.
        3. Go camping. Relatively affordable and, if the weather’s right, beautiful and romantic.
          • Take an overnight backpacking trip. For the more adventurous couples, backpacking is an even more intense way to challenge yourself physically while becoming one with nature.
          • Take a wine tasting tour. If you live on the West Coast or in the Northeast, take a drive to the nearest winery. Many offer relatively inexpensive tastings and deals if you purchase a certain amount.
          • Take a scenic train trip. Taking the train means less stress traveling: nobody has to drive, you don’t have to stop for breaks every few hours, and you can sleep if you need to!
          • Save up for a destination vacation. What better time than your anniversary to enjoy the beach at a beautiful resort?
          • Explore a new city. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot saved up, you can have a great time just exploring an unfamiliar town.
          • Rent a cabin for a weekend away, in the woods or next to a lake or ocean. If you like the outdoors but can only take so much nature, try glamping.
            • Go on a retreat. Yoga retreats, meditation retreats, beautiful natural surroundings … they’re all the rage. Search for centeredness and calm with your partner.
            • Spend a day at a food festival. Many cities have fun and affordable food festivals, occasionally based on a theme. Check out your town’s (or a nearby city) calendar for inspiration!

            New & Exciting Experiences

            1. Go spelunking. Dark, damp, and utterly exciting!
            2. Go on a hot air balloon ride. Because the basket is relatively small, this can be a romantic and deeply personal – and yet thrilling –
              experience.
              • Try sky diving. If you and you S.O. are real thrill-seekers, sky diving can really push you to the edge!
              • Explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. This may take you far away from where you normally live and work, which is an added bonus.
              • Experience white water rafting.
              • Drive or hike to the highest spot nearby for a new view of the world. America has tons of beautiful mountains where challenging hikes (or drives) can deliver breathtaking views.
              • Take a craft or cooking class. Up your craft skills or food  making skills, and enjoy something new!
                • Take a wine and painting class today. These classes are easily found these days and even a beginning painter can create a nice painting. Challenging but relaxing, fun, and you get to go home with some artwork!
                • Learn to salsa dance. Dancing is a fantastic way to actively get closer and coordinate physically with one another.
                  • Visit a nearby festival you’ve always wanted to go to. Have fun and let go with fellow audience-members!
                  • Spend the day at an amusement park together. Laugh and carry on like teenagers.
                  • Meet new people! At a restaurant, concert, or class, make it a point to meet new friends. Striking up conversation with someone you don’t know – but with whom you have shared interests – can be an adventurous and rewarding experience.

                  Whether your budget is big or small, and whether you have a little or a ton of time together, focus on each other. There are tons of options, in terms of location, level of physical activity, and cost. You can make the day special in a way that’s right for you!
