Published March 24, 2013 by teacher dahl


Chickpeas and oranges, water and soya, almonds and hair packs; all combine to save the day for your hair and treat hair loss! So, complain no more and get set to fight hair loss with this easy action plan. Here are some natural remedies recommended by experts to prevent hair loss.

A hair specialist, suggest some natural remedies for hair loss. However, natural remedies cannot prevent hair loss. They can only control it.

Eat right:

A healthy, balanced diet is the first step, says  a  doctor . “If your body does not get enough nutrients, your hair will become weak, leading to hair loss,” she says.

Her first recommendation is soy, which gives you iron and vitamin E. “Iron is important for haemoglobin, which brings oxygen to the scalp. You hair cannot grow without this. Vitamin E increases blood circulation in the scalp,” she says.

Almonds enrich the scalp with vegetable protein. Fish gives it omega-3 fatty acids. Oranges supplies your body with vitamin C, which helps in the absorption of collagen. Then there are chickpeas, which have zinc and vitamin B6. “Zinc is necessary for the absorption of the many vitamins. Lack of zinc can lead to dandruff, which causes the hair to fall.”

Pamper your hair:

“Massaging the scalp for a few minutes everyday will lead to stimulation of blood flow to the scalp.”  Massaging can also lead to minor hair growth because your scalp is getting more blood.

Unrefined coconut oil controls hair fall to some extent. Other oils you could use are almond oil, lavender oil and jojoba oil. These oils stimulate the scalp. “Jojoba oil is especially good because it replaces the sebum in the scalp. It also controls dandruff.”

Here’s how you can massage your hair with warm coconut oil to promote hair growth.

Help your hair:

Using an Aloe Vera hair-pack is another way of controlling hair fall. “Aloe Vera heals the scalp by balancing the pH levels in the scalp. It has cleansing properties which clear up your pores.”

Henna is one more natural conditioner. It will make your hair look healthier. Applying natural conditioners such as curd and egg on your hair will make it stronger.

Cleanse and detoxify:

An unhealthy diet or lifestyle will add to the toxins in your body. This can lead to hair loss. Cleanse your system for a better body, skin and hair.

Drink lots of water and get your vitamins and minerals. The hair is the first part of your body which will show signs of what is wrong with your body.
If your hair loss does not stop or if you are losing large amounts of hair, consult a doctor. if you are losing more that 100-150 strands of hair every day, it could be because of a disease.

Sex facts you never knew

Published March 12, 2013 by teacher dahl

The average amount of time spent kissing for a person in a lifetime is 20,160 minutes.

That’s 336 hours or 2 weeks. Ladies, time to stock up on those lip balms.

A quarter of penises are slightly bent when erected.

You’ll be surprised that most men are as self conscious about their body parts as the ladies. Nearly half of them think their penis is too small – however most women are satisfied with their man’s size.

For the average healthy male, just a teaspoon of semen contains an astonishing 300 million sperm count.

Don’t like hitting the gym? 30 minutes of active sex can actually burn you about 200 calories!

Sperm actually contains proteins that have the same anti-wrinkle effect as your moisturiser – which firms skin!!

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

When a woman orgasms, she releases an endorphin that kills pain. The next time you have a headache, ditch the painkiller and have sex instead.

And you wonder why most men are obsessed with big bums – because it indicates fertility!

It’s been said that women have affairs because they are unhappy with their relationship.

One in four men switches the light off during sex.

The world’s greatest lover is of course Casanova, the Venetian adventurer and writer. In the 18th century, accounts of his seduction prowess were very much written by other great novelists’ stories. Now you know why “players” are often referred to as Casanovas.

The black widow spider kills and eats her mate during or after sex. She can even consume up to 20 lovers in a single day!

Men have an average 11 erections per day.

It is said on average, adult men think about sex every seven seconds.


Whales are the proud owners of the world’s largest penises. The biggest recorded whale penis was the 8-footer of a killer whale.

Facial Milia: How to Prevent Them

Published February 23, 2013 by teacher dahl


According to Dermadoctor, Milia are “deep seeded” white bumps that occur due to clogs pores. You can often find milia on your face, particularly in the eye ring area and on top of your cheek bones, even though they can occur anywhere on your face.

Facial milia exist as a common occurrence, and a common re-occurrence, with many people. Lots of remedies for facial milia exist for the already-present facial milia. However, how does one go about preventing facial milia? Here are some tips for helping you prevent facial milia:

Avoid fatty foods. Fatty foods such as cheese, milk, and fried foods contribute to the forming of facial milia because these types of food help clog your pores. So, next time you take a bite of something, think about what that food product consists of before you actually take a bite. If the food product you are about to eat contains a lot of oil or fat, don’t eat it. Choose another food product with less oil and fat. Your skin will thank you for it.

Exfoliate your skin. It really fails to be enough to just wash your skin everyday. You really need to exfoliate it well at least once per day. You can buy a good exfoliating cleanser, or you can go the cheaper route and use a good over-the-counter cleanser and a sturdy wash cloth. Any Aveeno cleanser works well because Aveeno nourishes your skin and does not clog pores. Use this cleanser and a good wash cloth to scrub your face well on a daily basis to remove dead skin and trapped dirt.

Condition your pores. Make sure that you take at least one steamy bath or shower per day, with the bathroom door closed. The steam helps to open up your facial pores, and you can scrub out the trapped dirt easily when your facial pores open up. Too, if you need to perform any facial extractions, this serves as a good time to do it because facial impurities tend to surface when your facial pores open up. Just be sure to scrub behind your facial extractions to remove any trapped dirt that you missed.

Moisturize properly. Lots of moisturizers exist on the market today, and lots of companies claim to offer the best moisturizer. You can choose a pricey moisturizer as long as it does not clog your skin pores. Why not save your wallet, though, and choose Aveeno moisturizing products because Aveeno does not clog up your skin pores, and you can get Aveeno products at many grocery stores, as well as at Wal-Mart and Target. Regular cleaning and moisturizing can go a long way in preventing facial Milia.

*Don’t forget to monitor your fatty food intake, as well.
