6 Best Natural Tips & Tricks To Grow Your Hair Faster

6 Best Natural Tips & Tricks To Grow Your Hair Faster

As we all know that the monsoon season is around the corner, it’s time to pay some attention to your hair. Just forget about the expensive chemical hair products and use natural remedies. It’s a fact that there’s nothing more beneficial than natural products for hair growth.

When it comes to the hair composition, it is made up of Keratin (a protein produced in the hair follicles). Follicles produce new hair cells, and the old ones are pushed out at the rate of about 6-inches a year through the surface of the skin.

The interesting fact is that the hair you see is a skin of dead keratin cells and an average adult has approximately 120,000 to 160,000 hair strands. Also, an average person loses up to 90 hairs a day. Thus, if you see a few broken hairs on your hairbrush; that’s not an alarming sign, though! Here, in this article, I am going to enlist some tips and tricks for encouraging natural hair growth.

1. Onion Juice

Using the onion juice for hair growth is one of the oldest and effective remedies so far. The juice contains the sulphur, which initiates the production of collagen in the tissues and helps to re-grow your hair. I know, it has a strong, pungent smell, but you don’t need to worry at all. It goes off after rinsing once.

Let’s get started by slicing an onion in half and squeezing out its juice. You can also smash it or grate it. Now apply it on the scalp and let it absorb for 10 to 15 minutes. Afterwards, you can rinse it off with a mild shampoo. Certainly, it works like magic on your hair. You can also use the potato juice instead of onion juice. It works the same way.

2. Coconut Milk

“Coconut milk is quite an effective remedy used for the natural hair growth as it’s rich in potassium, iron and essential fats,” said by Chairperson, Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies, Dr Blossom Kochhar.

To use it on your hair, just take out the coconut milk from a fresh coconut, add some drops of lemon juice and lavender essential oil (about four drops). Mix all ingredients thoroughly and put the paste on your scalp. Now let it absorb for 4 to 5 hours and then rinse off.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely helpful in the scalp cleansing and also helps to maintain the pH balance of your hair, thus accelerating hair growth.

Take one-litre water and add the 75ml of Apple Cider vinegar and apply this solution on your scalp after washing your hair with shampoo. It will boost the hair growth and also adds shine to it.

4. Make your Egg Mask

As a matter of fact, the egg mask recipe is being used all over the globe to accelerate the hair growth.

Eggs constitute a vast quantity of proteins that are extremely beneficial for the hair formation. It also contains zinc, sulphur, iron, phosphorous, iodine and selenium.

5. Green Tea

Green Tea is another excellent natural remedy for hair growth as its super-rich in antioxidants. It also prevents hair loss. Now you don’t need to throw away any used tea bags. Just take the warm green tea from the used tea bag and apply it on your scalp. Leave it for almost 1 hour and then rinse it off with cold water.

Amla or Indian Gooseberry is known as a magical fruit which contains a lot of nutrients. It contains high-level of Vitamin C, which helps to boost the hair growth.

Just take two teaspoons of amla juice or powder and add an equal amount of lime juice in it. Now apply it on your scalp and leave it for half an hour and then wash off with warm water.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
