Who doesn’t want to have longer and thicker hair? There are some ways to do it without causing any harm on your hair. So let’s get lucky and pick 10 tips of the many that can be used for growing hair faster.
On average, everyone grows about a half an inch of hair every month. Although genetic factors can contribute to individual differences, it is not as significant as we think.
There is no proven scientific formula to accelerate or stimulate hair growth. What you see on Youtube telling anyone that they can make their hair longer by 3-4 inches in only a few weeks is misleading.
Anyone who seems to have their hair grown faster is just because their hair has thicker texture and grows in higher density. When your hair becomes thicker and denser, it will look longer too.
Here I have 10 suggestions to treat your hair in the proper way and get the essential nutrients for healthy hair growth.
1. Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp can improve the blood circulation in your head and stimulate the activity of your hair follicles. When more of your follicles become active, you can grow more hair and thus your hair looks longer.
Here are two ways you can do it: rubbing your scalp with essential oil, or the inversion method that is recommended by many beauty bloggers.
You’re not alone if you’re experiencing breakage, increased hair shedding or significant hair loss. For women who are very vain, hair loss is one thing that will totally freak them out.
Lauren Engle was just 28 when she noticed her hair falling out. As her strands got thinner, her part line widened and her ponytail shrunk to the thickness of a pencil. When she saw more scalp showing, she knew she had a problem.
Engle, who lives in Dallas, Texas, is far from alone. Millions of women in the U.S. suffer from hair loss, caused by genes, age or alopecia areata. In Engle’s case, the culprit was unexplained female pattern baldness.
“There’s tons of us out there, but it’s not spoken about,” Engle, 35, who writes about her experience in the Corner of Hope & Mane blog, told TODAY.
“It’s really sad for women. Their hair is oftentimes their crowning glory. That’s what we do to make ourselves look different, feel beautiful … Everything in the media is always women with long, flowing hair and we don’t have that, so there’s a lot of shame.”
August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month — an effort to bring attention to a condition that can cause “dramatic and devastating” emotions in patients, dealing a blow to their self-esteem, body image and self-confidence, the American Academy of Dermatology notes.

Over 85% of people, especially teenagers struggle with stubborn acne. They develop due to various factors like hormonal changes, stress, weak immune system and unhealthy food style. These factors lead to excess secretion of oil which clogs the skin pores. Impurities get trapped in the clogged pores which leads to bacterial growth causing acne.
The best method to treat acne in long term is to follow proper hygiene and food routine. But if you want to deal with the present acne, then you can resort on home remedies instead of commercial treatments. Apple cider vinegar, honey, clay mask and lemon are some of the effective ones to try. Today, let’s discuss regarding apple cider vinegar for acne in detail.
Quick Tip: If you want to prevent acne breakouts, then you have to heal from inside. Wondering how to do that then click here to know.
Is Apple Cider Vinegar Good for Acne?
Apple cider vinegar contains anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties which kills the bacteria causing acne.
As a natural detoxifier, it deals with free radicals and other harmful toxins that contribute to acne.
Alpha-hydroxy acid present in it cleans the skin pores by exfoliating the dead skin cells and impurities.
It restores the pH level of the skin by balancing the acid – alkaline levels which helps to regulate the oil production.
Due to anti-inflammatory properties, it reduces redness, swelling, and pain.

The wonderful thing about hairstyles to suit women in their thirties, is that there’s so much to choose from.

Aside from perfecting our make up techniques, we should not also forget the proper hygiene with our make up brushes. It’s very important to clean them to prevent break outs and also to prolong the life of our make up brushes. This blog I would share has a detailed step-by-step cleaning techniques in makeup brushes that we can really apply.
I’ve posted how-to’s on beauty and makeup but I’ve realized that I haven’t posted about proper makeup hygiene. This is crucial because bacteria can harbor in makeup and brushes/sponges if not used or cared for properly. This can lead to eye infections, breakouts, and spreading germs. Eeek. So I’m going to go over some basics with you about your makeup’s shelf life (yes, just like food, makeup should be tossed when it’s reached its expiration) and how to clean and disinfect tools as well. Along the way I’ll answer some questions you might have already been asking yourself about your makeup. Ready to learn? Here we go!
How do I know if this is expired?
How does it smell? Stale? Has the color changed? Does it feel or go on different? Usually oil based products like lipsticks, and those that you touch with your fingers (such as concealer and foundation) are the first to go bad. These are exposed to germs and bacteria and should be checked regularly to avoid clogging pores and ruining your complexion. Ouch. Also anything that has a wand (that pumps air in) like lipgloss and mascara will last less than the rest.
I just want to share this amazing beauty regimen that I’ve found lately. It’s called DIY face mask where the ingredients can only be found inside our kitchen. This is the article where I got the ingredients. It’s easy and simple!
While our summer days are numbered, the blotchiness and dryness you’ve picked up from the sun along the way may, unfortunately, stick around. Although we love treating ourselves to a fancy salon facial, there are plenty of quick DIY versions that are much easier on our busy schedules—and wallets!
So we scoured Pinterest for the best face mask recipes to restore your skin. They all include good-for-you ingredients like avocado, honey, oatmeal and even chocolate—all stuff that’s likely already sitting in your kitchen cabinets. Read on to find a treatment for your skincare needs, and pin along with SELF on Pinterest for other brilliant ideas.
The Hydrating Avocado Mask
1/2 ripe avocado
1 teaspoon plain organic yogurt
1 teaspoon of honey
This moisturizing mask is great for stressed-out skin from a day outdoors. Mash the avocado until it’s soft and then mix in the yogurt and honey until it forms a paste. Apply to your face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. For a more intense dose of hydration, incorporate one or two teaspoons of virgin olive oil into the formula, which instantly softens and smoothes skin.
Living a healthy lifestyle means we also need to consider the ingredients of beauty products we put on our body especially on our face. This is one of the reasons why organic make-ups are really popular nowadays. I know you are confused which brands to buy right now. Anyway check this article I’ve found. I’m sure this will help you a lot.
Chances are you’re no stranger to Instagram and YouTube makeup transformations. They can be almost addictive to watch: a plain Jane chirps into the camera about some new product she’s discovered, swipes some foundation here, dabs some concealer there, blends it all over, and bam — a face is completely transformed.
Sure some of the transformations are awe-inspiring, but most of the vloggers and bloggers aren’t aware of all the toxins they’ve just smeared all over their faces. From phthalates and parabens to perfumes and BPA and much, much more, cosmetics are normally choc-a-block with harmful ingredients, many of which are now being linked to cancer, hormonal disruption, skin rashes and more. Despite these discoveries, most old, established cosmetics companies are far too slow to change their ways, and continue to pump out their toxic sludge into packages they sell to us as ‘makeup.’
As a consequence, a crop of new, innovative brands are springing up, but unlike their larger (and more chemically laden) competitors, they don’t have easy access to large markets, and many consumers don’t know where to find them.
