4 Natural Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Thick

One of the most fun things about our body is our hair. We can experiment with it however we want to.
I, personally, mark the end of a phase, be it a bad phase or a good one, by changing my look, in which my hair plays a huge part, obviously. So, how can we be alright with our hair not being the way we want it to be which is smooth, silky, and thick? We don’t want our prized tassels to be scraggly and dull, but then, with all the playing and experimenting, these things are bound to happen.

What causes hair thinning?

 4 Natural Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Thick
1. Excessive physical or mental stress: Physical stress due to a surgery or engaging in tiring activities, or even flu can cause temporary hair loss. This can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium. Stressful events can disturb the hair cycle pushing more hair than usual into the shedding phase.

2. Lack of protein: When our mothers ask us to eat a lot of green vegetables and eggs, they have a reason behind it. In addition to a lot of other things, protein deficiency also causes hair loss. This is because our body tries to make up for the deficiency by rationing protein by stopping hair growth.

3. Heredity: If you have a family history of hair thinning or baldness, you may be prone to it.

4. Hormonal changes in females: 

Just as pregnancy causes hair loss due to excessive stress and hormonal changes, so can switching between or going off birth control pills. This is because these things cause a lot of hormonal imbalance in the body.

5. Anaemia: Iron deficiency, which is something majority of women suffer from, can also lead to a lot of hair loss which is one of the most common symptoms of anaemia,

6. Over-styling:

Styling your hair too much can also cause hair loss because its is being put through too much stress. Exposing your hair to too much heat and chemicals can also make it weaker, as it affects the roots.

The good news is that just a little bit of nourishment and a little bit of care can make them all glossy and thick like you’ve always wanted them to be. There are so many natural remedies to stimulate hair growth and increase the volume of your hair. Here’s how to make your hair thick by using simple home remedies.

1. Eggs

Since protein deficiency is one of the main reasons for hair thinning, it shouldn’t be a surprise that eggs, a great source of protein, will help you undo the damage. Protein is the best nutrient to give your hair the strength to grow in volume and in length. To use egg on your hair, beat two eggs so that they are properly whisked together. Apply this mixture on dry hair and let it stay for about half an hour. Not only will this help in the long run, but it will also make your hair soft and silky instantly.

2. Coconut Oil

Our grandmothers and mothers have been pestering us to apply coconut oil on our hair at least once weekly, and that can’t be because of no reason, right? Coconut oil is the best product to maintain the texture and shine of your hair. Coconut oil also has the necessary proteins to keep the hair strong. To use coconut oil for getting thicker hair naturally, massage a bit of warm coconut oil into the scalp and hair and cover it with a hot towel for 10 to 15 minutes. This will ensure that the oil stays heated while penetrating the hair shaft.

3. Olive Oil

Olive oil has everything that our hair needs to stay healthy and thick. This is because of the omega-3 fatty acids

it contains which make it easier for the hair to become thicker and more voluminous. To use olive oil, simply apply the oil to your hair and massage it over your scalp. Leave it on for thirty minutes and then rinse with a light shampoo.

4. Castor oil

Castor oil has high amounts of Vitamin E and fatty acids which promote hair growth, and due to its high viscosity, it coats the hair thoroughly. Apply castor oil on your hair just as you would apply coconut oil for best results.

In addition to these natural remedies, there are various ways in which you can protect your hair from losing its health. For instance, don’t over-wash. Washing them too often can dry out your hair. The less you wash, the more hydrated your hair will be, and more hydration means better health. And, if it is necessary for you to wash your hair often, then consider using sulfate-free products as they have lesser harsh chemicals which affect the roots of the hair.

4 Ways I Learned How to Adopt a Healthier Diet From a Woman Who Completely Transformed Her Body

Much attention is focused on the external signs of aging on our skin as we grow older. Although I’m just a couple years north of 30, my beauty regimen can rival that of someone a few decades older, thanks to work perks and the millennial obsession with “preventive anti-aging.” But as much cream as I slathered onto my face, certain pesky signs of aging kept rearing their ugly head—not exactly in the form of lines and wrinkles, but what felt like a subtle yet noticeable decline in wellness—a cough that never seems to go away, headaches that come out of nowhere and a sluggishness that sometimes finds me still in bed well into a weekend afternoon.

Fixing those signs of aging, the ones caused by the general pressures and stress of adult life, wasn’t quite as simple, and I knew that it required a 360-degree approach that started with eliminating poor eating habits and ended with stress management. Last year, during a routine work meeting, I was introduced to a woman named Diana Stobo, a chef and wellness coach who had completely transformed her body with a 100-pound weight loss and fixed a number of ailments through a very disciplined nutrition program that was heavy on raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. Although her results were astounding, the thought of not drinking alcohol when champagne is more readily available than water at most work functions, or avoiding processed foods when dinner is often takeout, seemed impossible. So instead of attempting (and surely failing at) her program alone, I booked a ticket to Costa Rica and decided to have Stobo and her team coach me through a three-day detox at her personal resort, The Retreat.

 

Usually the words “you’re on vacation” are synonymous with “treat yourself to a piña colada and some fried apps,” but The Retreat is not about that kind of indulgence. Instead, the experience is heavily centered around the concept of relieving your body of stress by removing everything that causes it in the first place. Aside from a reliable Wi-Fi connection (because, let’s be honest, the absence of that would be the ultimate stress trigger), technological devices are largely absent as is pollution, noise, traffic, too many people and yes, access to bad food. The kitchen is the heart of the property, where food takes on an almost medicinal quality, made mostly raw and mostly vegan and straight from the property’s backyard garden. All trained under Stobo, the kitchen staff members are equal part teachers and chefs. Here’s what they taught me about how to adopt a healthier diet for good.

 

Eat foods that make you feel good and ditch the ones that don’t.
How often have I looked at foods that I knew would make me feel gross after and proceeded to eat it anyway. The solution? When you have that nagging feeling that you’re about to make a bad choice, stop. “Recognize the foods that cause harm and substitute with delicious foods that nourish,” advises Stobo.

Not having the tools is what’s preventing you from eating healthier.
Sometimes sticking to a healthy routine can be as simple as changing your go-to kitchen tool from a microwave to a blender. When it comes to clean eating, “a high-powered blender is the best investment possible,” says Stobo. “For soups, smoothies, salad dressings, hummus, and desserts, this tool will do it all.”

 

Focus on the food, not the calorie count.
Counting calories and making healthy choices can sometimes be at odds. Case in point: When focused on restricting calories, we might be incentivized to reach for “low-fat” or “diet” options that are heavily processed and lack nutrition. “We don’t count calories,” says Stobo. “With mostly vegetables and fruits the calorie count isn’t significant. Some meals are heavier with nuts than others, but it all balances out.”

Start with moderation, not complete elimination.
Although Stobo lives by a list of “nos”—no dairy, wheat, sugar, meat, alcohol, or caffeine—she doesn’t advise everyone to go cold turkey with eliminating them all. At The Retreat, alcohol and coffee were available and locally grown chicken and fish were often served for dinner. As someone who was just easing into a healthier routine, having access to these items made all the difference between looking forward to my next meal and wanting to run away. Eating a healthy diet should feel good, not like you’re depriving yourself, and living by that rule is perhaps the most important step to eating well.

4 Tips to Keep In Mind If You're Ordering Sushi for the First Time

If you have never eaten or experienced this 2000-year old Japanese delicacy before, it’s perfectly normal to be overwhelmed by the exquisite ingredients used for its preparation and presentation.The holistic experience of eating sushi is influenced not only by how it’s prepared, but also by how one eats it. Here are some basic things that you can keep in mind to thoroughly enjoy your first sushi escapade.

4 Tips to Keep In Mind If You're Ordering Sushi for the First Time

1. Learning the basics of Sushi

Since fish is the core ingredient of this dish, a first-time sushi eater should ensure that it is not poorly prepared as this can lead to ruining the entire experience and discourage you from eating it again, especially if you are not fond of seafood to begin with. The very basic types of sushi rolls include Sashimi, Nigiri, Maki, and Temaki. Maki is also referred to as a ‘sushi roll’ which typically includes fish and vegetables rolled with rice in a sheet of roasted seaweed (nori) and cut into bite-sized portions. You can consider this as the best starting point if you are queasy about eating raw fish. Traditionally, the Japanese sushi roll has 6 pieces wrapped in seaweed.

2. Know your condiments

A plate of sushi includes wasabi also known as Japanese horseradish, a green ball of paste which has an extremely strong pungency. They serve powdered wasabi mixed with water. Wasabi powder is dried horseradish, mustard seed, corn filler, and cabbage. This spicy condiment is sometimes included in maki and nigiri, but is available if you desire more. Pickled ginger comes in thin, pink or white tan slices on the side of the plate and is used for cleansing the palate between bites. You’ll also have a shallow dish to dip your sushi in soy sauce.

3. Ordering Sushi

You should go for recommendations from the chef directly if possible and opt for fresh items since sushi includes raw fish which tastes the best when your sushi is freshly prepared. Aim for a variety of sushi rolls both in vegetarian and non-vegetarian categories. The menus are no more limited to raw fish rolls but also include a plethora of options ranging from prawn rolls, chicken rolls, and vegetable sushi rolls. Ordering a mix of nigari, maki and the recommended rolls at the sushi bar will not only help you get familiarized with the available variety, but will also boost your entire experience.

4. Eating Sushi

  • Clean your hands before eating sushi. Many sushi bars will provide a hot and moist towel for this reason before serving your food. While you can choose to eat with chopsticks, it is acceptable to eat sushi with your hands, therefore wash your hands thoroughly before you begin.
  • Pour a tiny amount of soy sauce into the dipping bowl which can be mixed with a small amount of wasabi. You need to be careful when dipping the sushi roll into the soy sauce as the fish needs to be dipped first and not the rice, so that the piece can stay together and won’t become soaked with the salty soy sauce. If the sushi already has sauce on it, do not dip it in the soy sauce. Try enjoying it as the chef has seasoned it. You can layer it with a thin slice of ginger if you like.
  • Alternatively, you can use chopsticks to dip the ginger in the soy sauce, and then use it to brush the sauce onto the fish rather than dip the fish directly. This also gives the flavor of ginger without eating it.
  • Ideally, sushi is supposed to be eaten in one bite. If the piece is too big, eat it in two bites. If you pay attention to both the flavors and the textures, then you will be surprised with how mild and tender the fish is.
  • Keep refreshing your mouth with a slice of ginger in between bites. Refrain from eating it in the same bite as sushi, and don’t eat big blobs of ginger all at once as it may overpower the taste of the sushi.

Keeping these tips handy, you can now easily order for yourself a plateful of sushi and start warming up to this mouth-watering Japanese delicacy.
