Winter has a huge influence on our hair, making it incredibly dry, brittle, and very hard to grow your hair. We have you covered with our all-vegan winter haircare tips to ensure your New Year kicks off with a bang, with glossy, long hair in no time!


Tip 1: We Are What We Eat:

If you want to have long and healthy hair, review your diet. Thick, beautiful hair requires foods rich in healthy fats; including avocados, pumpkins, seeds, beans, coconut oil and any other kind of nuts. All these foods contain Vitamins A and C that stimulate the scalp and hair growth. Equally food in high dose of protein protect your hair from breakage and split ends so are also important additions. Alongside these vital healthy vegan foods some companies also provide vegan supplements with particular focus on your hair, nails and skin which can support during the winter months.


Tip 2: Avoid Heated Styling Tools:

You’ve heard it a million times before, but its so true…avoid those curling tongs/hair straighteners when trying to grow your hair! Their temperature can reach over 400 degrees and harms your hair like nothing else. Still want to tame those locks while growing out your hair? Use nourishing mousses, balms and gels in order to make your hair shine. There are such an array of products out there, each meant for a specific hair type and need so choose the one right for your particular hair query, whilst focusing on growth.

If you really cannot live without those straighteners, ensure you minimise the damage with heat-protectant. Although not a miracle worker these sprays can reduce the damage the high temperatures work on your hair.


Tip 3: Help Your Hair:

Regularly apply special masks to your hair in order to moisturize, nourish and hydrate it. You can even create a nourishing, natural hair mask from the things in your fridge! Choose avocado, coconut oil or cucumber to stimulate your scalp and hair follicles. These products will strengthen your roots and ends and can be left for as little as five to ten minutes to have an effect.

It’s official! Long, beautiful hair can be achieved…even in the cold winter months!

The Wonders Of Technology: Making The Impossible Possible

Train ferry 2

Despite many people fear to travel by air, thousands still enjoy the comfort of travelling by airplane. As a matter of fact, according to aviation experts, travelling by air is the safest, since we don’t often hear of air disasters like road accidents.

How great has technology made things impossible to be possible, as we travel to various destinations around the globe, to carry out our professionals and business duties? Again there is assurance and possibility that technology will change the entire universe within few decades for mankind to witness its impact and benefit.

Take, for example, travelling from Copenhagen- Denmark, to Hamburg-Germany by train. A route I’ve used twice and it’s amazing to share this experience. Do you know that while enjoying the Summer holidays or taking a trip to visit the family in Winter, along the line from Copenhagen, the train goes in a ferry to cross the Baltic sea?

In the train for a couple of hours, it suddenly stopped, followed by sounds of clanging metals. That’s where the work of the train finding its way into the ferry starts. I realized the coaches were entering a gigantic ferry one by one until the coach I was inside also got the chance to enter into the belly of the ferry. What a wonderful world? I asked myself.

In the ferry, we descended to the floors of the ferry, while the ferry rides us through the 45 minutes journey across the Baltic Sea. On my way to London, I have joined the ferry many times from Calais to Dover, which carries vehicles of all sizes as well, but ferries for loading train coaches are special.

It’s amazing to see rail lines weaving its way through the ferry for the train to enter across the Baltic Sea, and at the end of the ‘water’ -journey, the train transports passengers once again on land. It’s incredibly wonderful, beautiful and splendid thing I’ve ever seen.

Since the world is constantly changing through the periscope of technology, technology will continue to change our environments, electrical gadgets, medicine, transportation and our infrastructure, despite that many aren’t happy, because we are losing our jobs to machines.
