Did you know your hair (assuming you had enough of it) is strong enough to support the weight of two elephants? Or that you lose 40-150 strands of hair a day on average? (Don’t worry, we have an average of 100,000 strands, so that shedding is pretty minimal.) No matter how much (or how little) hair you have on your head, you probably don’t know that much about it. Fortunately, this infographic can fill you in with over 50 folicle-friendly facts.
The facts are quite fascinating too. For example, while only 1% of the world’s population has red hair, 13% of Scottish people are natural redheads and the US has the largest total population of gingers. Of course, it’s hard to tell if someone really is a redhead or not these days when 75% of all women dye their hair.
Ah, camping. The great outdoors, the campfires, the food you’d never eat in civilised society: it’s a wonderful experience.
That said, things can get a little bit tricky when we are left to the mercy of Mother Nature. Here are 30 fantastic camping hacks you can use to make your camping experience as wonderful as possible!
1. Use sage to repel mosquitoes.
Place some sage in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos.
2. Liquid soap + cotton balls = no ticks.
If you or one of your fellow campers is having trouble with a tick, place the soap-soaked cotton on the tick for 20 seconds. The tick will eventually stop chewing and will come away with the cotton ball. If the tick was attached for a lengthy amount of time you may want to consider keeping it in a container so that you can test it for Lyme disease later.
3. Use an acorn cap as a whistle if you get lost.
It’s remarkably easy to get lost whilst camping. Here’s a full tutorial on how you can transform an acorn into a whistle!
4. Corn chips for kindling!
Doritos are a great way to start a fire, just be careful!
5. Use the rest of the chips for nachos.
Nachos are easy to pack, light and simple to make. Plus they’re incredibly tasty.
6. Use compact, microfibre towels!
These towels are incredibly easy to store and dry within an hour of use. Buy them here.
7. Wrap duct-tape around your water bottle for emergencies.
