Adjust your diet

The road to thicker hair starts inside your body with the food you eat. Taking in healthy foods full of nutrients and minerals will help enhance not only your health, but also your hair's. Eating healthy fats, such as those found in avocados, can help your hair grow thicker and healthier. Other great sources of protein and healthy fats are salmon, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Building a balanced diet will not only help you in the long term. It will also give you thick luscious locks.


Menstrual cramp is an uncomfortable part of life for many women on a monthly basis. Drinking more water can help reduce bloating. Get in the habit of drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, especially during your period. Add a little mint or a lemon wedge piece to make it more palatable. While at it, avoid salt, which promotes fluid retention and bloating. Avoid dehydration-inducing alcohol.

Swiss meringue buttercream

Swiss meringue buttercream is a great alternative to American buttercream, as it holds its shape beautifully for decorating and isn't as cloyingly sweet as its Western counterpart. It takes a bit more time, but the result is well worth the effort.

Start by beating together 6 egg whites and 2 cups of sugar in a large metal bowl over a pan of water set on medium heat. Beat the egg whites and sugar together just until the sugar granules dissolve, making sure that the egg whites aren't cooking at all. Remove the bowl from heat and beat with an electric mixer until they get light and fluffy and hold a peak. Place bowl in fridge until cool.

Once the meringue has cooled, beat 3 sticks of softened butter, a tablespoon at a time, until thoroughly combined. Add in a teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of salt, mix, and you're done! Use for frosting cakes, cupcakes, or whatever you'd like.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Got some hydrogen peroxide just sitting in your medicine cabinet? It’s finally time to put it to some good use. Hydrogen peroxide can add brightness to your paled whites because it’s an oxidizer. Much the same way as store-bought whitening agents, hydrogen peroxide dissolves the residue and brightens your whites. 

Imagine or Remember a Good Day

Have you ever found yourself smiling while thinking about a good day? Yes, that is what you need to do. We often find ourselves in situations when we have to force a smile when we don’t want to. Be positive and remember a good old day that might spread a smile across your face.

Improper Make-up Removal

Improper removal of makeup and leaving on makeup all night can also cause acne. For healthy and glowing skin, it is recommended to remove makeup before going to bed properly. Adopt a night-time skincare routine. If you wear foundation and other make-up products during the day, remove your makeup, wash and cleanse your face at night. Then apply toner, and moisturize.
