DIY: Garlic as Nail Hardener

I love to wear not too short and no too long nails that's why I always keep my nails trimmed but sometimes, when we forget to take care of it especially if we are too busy, we notice our nails breaking. Cutting it is not the last resort. Let me tell you why.

Garlic has sulphur minerals that keep nails strengthened and hard. I use garlic when I see that my nails are beginning to weaken because I've never liked wearing very short nails. The bonus point is, it can be found right inside your home and you need not to spend.

Things needed:
Clean water
Mild Soap
1 glove of garlic, minced
Clean hand towel

Things to do:
1. Clean your hands with clean water and mild soap. Do not use detergent bars as it contain hard chemicals that may cause dryness of skin
2. Dry off hands with a hand towel
3. Rub gently the minced garlic on fingernails
4. Wipe off any excess

Do this at home preferably during your free time. You can apply this and do some chores but I'm sure you wouldn't want the smell of the garlic to be everywhere.

You may be skeptical about it, so do I before I tried it. But give it a try and I hope it will help.

Is it Bad to Sleep with Wet Hair?

I should be worried because I do sleep with wet hair. Researching online, no medical study was shown that sleeping with wet hair causes blindness or pneumonia. However, sleeping with wet hair can be damaging to the hair itself.

Hair is weak when it's wet that's why we're encouraged to use wide-tooth comb when we manage wet hair. Hair brush should only be used when hair is already dry. Moreover, sleeping with the usual cotton pillow case can also be damaging. Hair experts suggest silky or satin pillowcases to those who have sensitive hair.

To prevent hair from breaking, experts recommend putting your hair up (in ponytail) when sleeping. Although these are all suggestions and recommendations, many have proven to this hair care to be effective.

I hope you find this tip to be helpful.

Have a naural, healthy, bouncy hair!

Back to Blogspot!

After being loyal to WordPress for 3 long years, they deactivated my account. First, they deactivated my online shop blog and weeks after that, my personal blog. What can I say? WOW. Thank you. I'm back to blogspot. For a year, I used blogspot and moved to Wordpress in 2009. But it seems that I have to use this again :p

Sometimes, I really get nostalgic when I think about how I worked hard to keep that Wordpress blog. I can't use the import tool, have to find out why.
