Stop Hair Loss Naturally

Tags : 

Using Onion Juice on your scalp can help prevent hair loss and regrow hair.

Did you know that using onions can be a natural way to stop hair loss? Onion juice, properly used on your scalp can reinvigorate your hair follicles. It will boost collagen production, which is a naturally occurring protein in the body that is essential to healthy skin, hair and nails. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin protein. Using onion juice on your scalp will increase blood circulation to the scalp, which promotes scalp and hair health. In addition, onion juice contains anti-bacterial properties that help with scalp infections. Additionally, it contains catalase, an anti-oxidant that can inhibit graying in some people by reducing naturally producing hydrogen peroxide in your hair, preventing your cells from oxidation and dehydration.

Peel and chop two onions into small pieces. Put the onion pieces and 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a blender. You may add some water if you need it. Blend and then squeeze outout the juice. Adding coconut oil or honey has advantages too. Massage the juice into your scalp or cover your bald patches. Leave the onion juice on your scalp for at least 30 minutes (Longer if you can tolerate the smell) and then wash it out using a mild organic shampoo.

That’s it! Do this three to four times each week, and you will begin to see results in just a few weeks. Keep it up and you can reinvigorate your scalp follicles and they will begin to re-grow hair.

Finding Balance; YOGA

Tags : 

       These days we are all familiar with yoga: from magazines to television, to friends and family, yoga has become a mainstream part of our culture. And yet, many of us still think of it as “stretching” when in fact, yoga is much more than that.
The practice of yoga was first developed in India and has evolved over thousands of years. Yoga disciples use poses, or “asanas” to prepare their bodies for meditation practice — much as an athlete would prepare for a sports competition. The poses can also serve as a means to alter one’s consciousness and mental focus in the spiritual quest for “enlightenment.” This spiritually trans- formative process is, in fact, the overriding purpose of the practice of hatha yoga. In essence, yoga is designed to bring body, mind and spirit into balance.
You may ask yourself, “Why do you need to worry about balance?” Through the practice of yoga, elite athletes like bicyclists, NFL players and triathlon runners, and even us weekend warriors alike, can benefit from this type of balance. This is especially true when athletes have pushed their bodies to the max, resulting in weakness or injury. Yoga can restore a weakened body and build it back up. Yoga postures, breath work and inner focus can help re-balance, strengthen and restore overtaxed muscles, joints and ligaments. Through this restoration process, athletes can increase their career longevity and develop an inner balance that will last a lifetime and many have found it to be an invaluable addition to their personal training regimen.
Balancing the mind, body and spirit is a primary philosophical principle of yoga. It is considered the “true way to honor the body.” In fact, properly practiced yoga can improve every part of your performance, from endurance to power to speed, while also promoting your overall health, well-being and mental clarity.
Yoga, much like the martial arts, is part of an ancient and deep tradition. In their quest for greater self-knowledge, the yogis realized our physical state deeply influences both our mood and mental capacity. They found that by practicing the physical postures of yoga, they could become more peaceful, and in turn, achieve greater focus.
     They also found by returning the body to its natural state that they could dramatically improve physical capacity. This is part of why many of today’s top athletes consider it a vital addition to their training.
Just a few years ago, fitness enthusiasts had few options if they wanted to try out a yoga class. Today, yoga is a mainstay on the program schedules of most health clubs and personal training studios. Unlike many other methods of training, the practice of yoga unfolds over time to reveal many layers of physical benefits and personal revelations.
Now, more people are discovering the many ways that yoga can be used to improve their overall well-being.

COOL Manscaping Tips for Summer

Tags : 

Do not wax your chest hair; not now, not ever. A hairy chest is the pure definition of what a man is. Do you think the Marlboro Man ever shaved his chest? No!

With that being said, it’s hot out this summer and you should trim your body hair at least twice a year if you plan to keep it managed. There isn’t a better time to manscape than a few days before going to the beach & pool parties. We’ve got a few simple hair ground-rules for you that will help keep you cool this summer.


As the thermometer rises, keep your scruff in check. During the winter, your beard may act as a woolen scarf, keeping you warm, but not during the summer months; your beard can cause irritation when your skin is hot and damp. So it’s even more important to keep it clean. Avoid dehydration, which can cause your hair to grow brittle and even more prone to breakage.

If heat irritation occurs, it might be time to compromise and give your whiskers a trim down to a #1 or #2 guard or the final length of 1 to 2 inches should be plenty, This will give your skin more airflow and make it easier for you to clean, while allowing you to quickly regrow once the season starts to change.

Shaving your back hair for the summer is a necessity. Let’s face it… There are very few men who look good with a hairy back. And if you’re a really hairy ‘ape’, then you should invest in a decent back razor. Also, if you can put your arms down to your sides and you have armpit hair popping out of your under arms, it’s time trim that off too!

Prevent irritation and skin damage with a post-shaving routine for after a fresh shave; use an aftershave without alcohol that focuses on hydrating your skin. During the summer, apply an oil- free moisturizer with an SPF to help protect your skin from the sun.
