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.

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

1. Eat Before Heading Out

First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

2. Select The Treats

Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

3. Avoid Skipping Meals

Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

4. Drink With Moderation

It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

5. Be Active

You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

6. Get Out Of The House

Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

8. Set Realistic Goals

You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

9. Enjoy Yourself

Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

10. Drink A Lot Of Water

This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

11. Eat Less And More Often

Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

12. Prioritize Your Workouts

Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

Happy Holidays everyone!
