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.

6. Indian Gooseberry (Amla)

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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
