For Healthy & Glowing Hair!!

Washing the hair properly is a Technique to get Healthy, glowing hair. Here are some simple guidelines to wash hair and keep them healthy naturally.
  • Always massage your hair with coconut or vitamin E enriched oil before washing them.
  • Massage will increase the Blood circulation in Head, which helps in growing the hairs in length & will become healthy.
  • Carefully rinse your hair with warm water to get it ready for shampooing.
  • Depending on the length and the thickness of your hair take the right amount of shampoo in your palm to create sufficient foam. A tablespoon shampoo should be sufficient for long hair and a proportionate amount for short hair.
  • Let water run through your hair while rinsing and continue stroking your hair in the downward direction. Rinse hair completely and check the hair lines for remnant shampoo lather.
  • Do not to stroke the wet hair roughly as it is prone to damage at this stage.
Applying conditioner
  • Make sure all the shampoo from your hair has been completely washed out.
  • Dispense some conditioner into your palms.
  • Apply the conditioner evenly into your hair. Let it stand for about 5 minutes.
  • Taking care not to stroke the hair strongly, rinse it with water while you stroke the hair downwards.
Drying hair
  • The best way is to let the hair dry naturally - the air dry method.
  • If time is a constraint and you have to use a dryer then use it on damp hair and never blow dry dripping wet hair.
  • Use the lowest speed and heat functions to dry your hair.
Remove all the knots gently using a wide tooth comb or brush. Start combing from the tip and slowly go up to the roots of your hair, this helps in avoiding split ends and prevents hair from breaking.

Choosing right shampoo Healthy hair: Shampoo with protein is a good bet. Regular shampoos should do well for this type of hair.

Fine hair: Shampoos labeled with substantive proteins will help this type of hair. Shampoo has to be a little more acidic. Alternatively rinse hair with vinegar and water or lime and water. This will help the cuticles become smoother and impart shine to your hair.

Oily hair: Lemon-based shampoos are the best remedy to offer. Jojoba-based shampoos help break up sebum buildup. They leave the hair dirt free and revitalize the scalp.

Hair washing How often can you wash your hair? The fact is that you can wash your hair as many times and as many days as you want to, provided you use the right type of shampoo that suits your hair. It is purely a personal decision on the number of times you want to wash your hair. It is believed that our ancestors seldom washed their hair, but with today's pollution and grime we can hardly think of following that dictum.
  • It is recommended to wash your hair only when really required lest you strip off the nutrients from the hair.
  • Don't wash your hair two times in progression as this might leave your hair dryer stripping away the natural oils.
  • Choose the right type of shampoo that will suit your hair type and the conditioners in the shampoo will help the hair look a lot healthier and protect the cuticle from wear and tear too.
  • If you have scheduled to wash your hair everyday then ensure that your shampoo has the right pH balance.
Hair washing tips
  • Be gentle while you massage the shampoo into your hair lest you disturb the regular cycle of your hair.
  • Too much use of shampoo will result in dry and unruly hair.
  • Egg shampoos are the best when it comes to retaining the natural oil in the hair and are very gentle on the hair.
  • If you plan to wash your hair daily, use a de-tangler at the end of every wash.
  • If your hair remains oily after the shampoo wash everyday, replace it with a conditioner straight away, it helps giving great looks to your hair.
  • Start shampooing from the nape of your neck and then into your scalp.
  • Using a comb to distribute the conditioner is a great idea.
  • Blot the water from your hair into a towel and do not rub as it is very weak when wet.
  • Do not wrap your hair in a towel over a head for a long time; this will cause damage to the root of the hair.
  • Try and avoid blow drying your hair as much as possible.

Quick Tips for Loosing Weight

Hi everybody! Today I'm going to share my weight loss Tips & Tricks with you. Gaining weight is the main problem of today's generation. Our living style, long sitting jobs, eating junk food, drinking habits, no physical work..etc,.. are some of the reasons behind this.

Here are some some good ideas for loosing the weight naturally:

A glass of warm water with a full-lime juice in it is an excellent weight reducer as well as a brilliant refresher and anti oxidant drink. The citric acid present in lime is an excellent fat burner. Just have two glasses a day and see the remarkable result within a week.

Lime juice and its oil are very beneficial for skin when consumed orally or applied externally. It rejuvenates the skin, keeps it shining, protects it from infections and reduces body odor due to presence of a large amount of vitamin-C and Flavonoids, both of which are class-1 anti oxidants, anti biotic and disinfectants. When applied externally on skin, its acids scrub out the dead cells, cures dandruff, rashes, bruises etc. and gives you a refreshing bath if its juice or oil is mixed into your bathing water.

Horse bean is the best remedy for obesity. Soak 50 grams of horse gram overnight and boil them till tender. You can add salt for taste but not necessary for best result. Drink the water empty stomach. You can use the boiled gram as salad with other fresh vegetables like tomato and cabbage.

Along with this a brisk walk is an added advantage. Walk at least for 45 minutes to 1 hour daily. You can see a good result in 30 days.

One or two ripe tomatoes taken early morning as a substitute for breakfast, for a couple of months, are considered a safe method of weight reduction. They also supply the food elements essential to preserve health.

Cabbage is considered to be an excellent home remedy for loosing weight. Recent research has revealed that a valuable chemical called tartaric acid is present in this vegetable which inhibits the conversion of sugar and other carbohydrates into fat. Hence, it is of great value in weight reduction.

Substituting a meal with cabbage salad would be the simplest way to stay slim.

Fasting on lime juice-honey water is highly beneficial in the treatment of obesity. In this mode of treatment, one teaspoon of fresh honey should be mixed with the juice of half a lime in a glass of lukewarm water and taken at regular intervals.

Hope you will enjoy & get rid of those extra calories from your body. :)
