Six Natural Remedies To Get Rid Of Dandruff

You may want to consider skipping the dandruff shampoo and try to me natural remedies to get rid of those annoying white flakes from your hair. Dandruff may be the result of a dry scalp, or a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis.

Furthermore, it could also be caused by eczema, psoriasis, or, an overgrowth of a yeastlike fungus called malassezia. Modern remedies may include shampoos with zinc pyrithione, which targets fungus and bacteria; ketoconazole; coal tar and selenium sulfide. Natural home remedies include the following.

 

Apple cider vinegar

The acidity of apple cider vinegar has the ability to change the pH of your scalp, making it harder for yeast to grow. Mix a quarter cup apple cider vinegar with a quarter cup water in a spray bottle and spritz on your scalp.

Wrap your head in a towel and allow it sit for 15 minutes to an hour, then wash your hair as usual. Do this twice a week.

 

Mouthwash

To treat a bad case of dandruff, wash your hair with your regular shampoo, then rinse with an alcohol-based mouthwash. You can follow up with your regular conditioner.

The anti-fungal properties of mouthwash helps prevent dandruff-causing yeast from growing.

 

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a “tried and true” dandruff treatment, and it smells nice too. Before showering, massage 3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil into your scalp and allow it sit for about an hour. Shampoo normally. You can also look for a shampoo that already contains coconut oil.

 

Lemon

Massage 2 tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir 1 teaspoon lemon juice into 1 cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat this daily until your dandruff disappears. Lemon’s acidity helps balance the pH of your scalp, which helps keeps dandruff at bay.

 

Aspirin

Aspirin contains the same active ingredient (salicylic acid) as many medicated dandruff shampoos. You can control those pesky white flakes by crushing two aspirins to a fine powder and adding it to the normal amount of shampoo you use each time you wash your hair.

Leave the mixture on your hair for 1-2 minutes, then rinse well and wash again with plain shampoo.

 

Baking soda

Some everyday ingredients you use in your kitchen such as the baking soda may hold the key to an itch-free, flake-free scalp. Wet your hair and then rub a handful of baking soda vigorously into your scalp and rinse after a few minutes.

Baking soda reduces overactive fungi. You may discover that your hair gets dried up at first, but after a few weeks your scalp will start producing natural oils, leaving your hair softer and free of flakes.

Seven Simple Ways You Can Get Rid Of Sweat Stains

Everyone has faced the problem of sweat stains on their favourite dress shirts or clothes and here are a number of do-it-yourself sweat stain solutions sitting in your home right now.

 

Meat Tenderizer

A meat tenderizer is not the first thing you’d think of when figuring out how to remove sweat stains. But you can tenderize away hard-to-remove stains. Before you wash that damaged sweatshirt, dampen the armpit stain and sprinkle some meat tenderizer on it. Then just wash as usual.

 

Aspirin

Before you give up all hope of ever getting that yellow sweat stain out of your good white dress shirt, crush two aspirins and mix the powder in 1/2 cup warm water. Soak the stained part of the garment in the solution for two to three hours.

 

Vinegar

Want to see those sweat marks disappear from shirts and other garments? Just pour a bit of vinegar directly onto the stain, and rub it into the fabric before placing the item in the wash. You can also remove deodorant stains from your washable shirts and blouses by gently rubbing the spot with undiluted vinegar before laundering.

 

Baking soda

Pretreating clothes with a paste made from 4 tablespoons baking soda and 1/4 cup warm water can help vanquish a variety of stains. For instance, rub it into shirts to remove perspiration stains; for really bad stains, let the paste dry for about two hours before washing. Rub out tar stains by applying the paste and washing in plain baking soda. For collar stains, rub in the paste and add a bit of vinegar as you’re putting the shirt in the wash.

 

Dish Soap

You can mix one part dish soap with two parts hydrogen peroxide, then scrub the stain and let it sit for an hour.

 

Salt

Salt is one secret you can use to get rid of those stubborn yellow stains where your shirt meets your armpits. Dissolve 4 tablespoons salt in 1 quart (1 liter) hot water. Sponge the garment with the solution until the stain disappears.

 

Lemons

Using lemons can help you avoid expensive dry-cleaning bills! Remove unsightly underarm stains from shirts and blouses simply by scrubbing them with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water.

My ugly and masculine wife used juju on me – Husband cries for help after 7 years of marriage

An anonymous man who has been married for seven years with kids is accusing his wife of casting a spell on him to influence him in marrying her.

However, after ‘coming back to his senses, he has stated that he would never have chosen her as a spouse if he was to be in his right frame of mind.

According to him, the spell broke away three days ago and is scared to sleep beside his wife because he claimed the woman is ‘ugly’ and has got a masculine stature.

In a chat with David Bondzie on Facebook, the anonymous guy said ‘I think she put a spell on me because, it doesn’t make sense. I came back to my senses three days ago and I have been scared to sleep next to her. I would never have chosen her if I were in my right senses”

Seeking help from David Papa Bondzie Mbir on Facebook, he sent photos of his wife to confirm how horrifying she is, be sure he didn’t marry a man and know why his friends were laughing in their wedding photos.

Confronting his ‘ugly’ wife for a divorce, he was shocked at the reply he got from his wife making him shiver badly in his emancipated bones.

‘My wife claims if I don’t want to be married, I can go. She says she’s already gotten what she wanted from me’, he said.

Harmattan: How to keep snakes away from your home

The harmattan is approaching in Nigeria and other countries in West Africa. The season occurs in the subcontinent from the end of November to the middle of March. It is characterised by the dry and dusty northeasterly trade wind of the same name, which blows from the Sahara Desert over West Africa into the Gulf of Guinea.

Apart from sundry discomfort that the wind causes us, it drives one creature most people cringe about into our path or even our homes: snakes.

Especially when frightened, snakes bite, in the dark or at daytime, and inject venom that may be lethal if the victim does not receive prompt medical attention.

Snakebite poison is a major public health problem in rural communities of Nigeria as indeed in many parts of the tropics. It has been confirmed to be a major cause of mortality and morbidity.

In Nigeria, it is estimated that more than 10,000 people are bitten by snakes each year, though the exact death toll is unknown.

According to official data, only 8.5 per cent of snakebite victims attend hospitals in Nigeria. Bites occur more often while victims were farming, herding or walking although the spitting cobra may bite victims who step on it in its sleep.

The WHO estimates that about 100 000 people die each year as a result of snake bites, and around three times as many amputations and other permanent disabilities are caused by snakebites annually.

The significant features of snake bite are spontaneous haemorrhage, shock, local swelling, bleeding and, occasionally, necrosis. Bites may be complicated by amputation in the affected body parts, blindness, disability, amongst others. If not treated within 26 hours, deep necrosis may set in, requiring amputation of the affected body part

Antivenom remains the hallmark and mainstay of envenoming management while studies in Nigeria confirm its protection of over 80 per cent against mortality from carpet-viper bites.

However, the availability, distribution, and utilisation of antivenom remain challenging.

Last year, PREMIUM TIMES published a report by the News Agency of Nigeria about the havoc snake bites wreaked in Gombe and Plateau states, driven by an acute scarcity of snake anti-venom drugs in the country.

In a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Fatai Oyediran of the department of public health in the health ministry, however, controverted the report. He said they had 3600 cases of snake bites generally in the country and the total mortality for last year was around 103 for the whole country, not just Gombe and Plateau, even though Gombe had the highest number.

Asked how prepared relevant health agencies are for snake bite cases during this year’s harmattan season, he said “anti-venom is the first item” on their list for the budget.

“Usually, we maker provisions for about 5500 anti-venom and we have provisions for this year (2018) up to 2021,” Mr Oyediran said.

“The only problem is the funding released by the government, to procure to the quantity we want. The drastic cut in the budget in recent times is affecting the money being released, even when we budget for the 6000 anti-venom, we may end up not getting up to that.”

How to keep snakes away from your home

Snakes do not like the hot temperature of harmattan any more than most of us do. In fact, on particularly hot days, snakes have to scramble for refuge in cooler places or they will overheat and die.

Therefore, you might run into snakes as they move back and forth from sunny places to shade.

Snakes come to your home for the cover, moisture, darkness, and food it provides. To drive them away, you have to take all these things away from them. Take as many steps to deprive snakes of cover in your home as possible.

1. Cut the grass short, clear bushes around your house. Snakes hate feeling exposed and avoid open, highly-visible areas.

2. Inspect your home, paying special attention to the gaps under the door. Seal cracks in the foundation of your house or wall and patch the holes.

3. Move your wood piles, these are great spots for snakes as they hate being exposed.

4. Avoid opening your front doors, leaving your windows open for too long (some of these snakes can reach high heights and they are very quiet, you would not see or hear them enter your house.

5. Before sitting under that tree that has that cooling shades, check if there are no snakes lurking around the branches, they love the cool shades too.

6. Check your bed, under your sheets and surrounding before going to bed.

7. Avoid chilling outside the house with mattresses, mats, and wrappers in the evening.

8. Get a snake repellent.

1. Give analgesic for local pain which may be severe, and might be helpful for calming effects.

2. The site of the bite should be wiped but not incised, because incisions can aggravate bleeding.

3. Remove anything tight from around the bitten part of the body.

4. Avoid traditional first aid methods, herbal medicines and other unproven or unsafe forms of first aid.

5. Transport the person bitten to a health facility as soon as possible.

6. Vomiting may occur, so place the person on their left side in the recovery position.

7. Closely monitor airway and breathing and be ready to resuscitate if necessary.

8. If the snake has been killed, it should be taken along to the hospital, in order to identify if it is poisonous or not and what kind of anti-poison is most appropriate.

9. During transit, the body generally and the bitten limb, in particular, should be moved as little as possible, to minimise the spread of venom

Prisoners Were Surrendering Their Lives To Jesus – Ex-Convict Iranian Pastor Says

An Iranian pastor, Mojtaba Hosseini who was arrested as a “threat against national security,” and released in 2015 has confirmed that while he was in prison a lot of prison inmates gave their lives to Jesus.

Mojtaba Hosseini was one of the leaders of a secret growing house church movement in Iran.

Hosseini who is 30, told Open Doors USA recently that he is determined to continue working to ensure that the church grows in Iran, in spite of the persecution from the Islamic government.

When asked about why he has not given up during an interview, Mojtaba said with a smile:

Why didn’t I stop my work for the church after I was first arrested? I don’t really know. There was no logical explanation, but we felt that the Lord wanted us to continue. We knew this would mean we could get arrested at any moment.

Mojtaba Hosseini also noted that while he was in the Iranian prison, he was not alone as God was always with him. He turned to God in prayer for help.

I prayed; that was all I could do,” he said. “At first, they were prayers of repentance. I thought God was punishing me for my mistakes by putting me in prison.” That was the moment, he says, he realized he was “nothing.

Then the Lord spoke to me. He said: ‘Stop being selfish Mojtaba, it’s not about you; it’s about Me. Look around you.

It was after that encounter that he began to look at fellow inmates around him tried to see them the way that God sees them.

God spoke again to me, saying, ‘It is time that you share Me with them. They need Me,” Hosseini explained.

He told Open Doors that in hindsight he realized what God had done.

It’s funny how God works sometimes. It would have been absolutely impossible for us to pass the big gates of prison to bring the gospel to those who needed him so badly inside,” Hosseini noted. “But God just placed me and other Christians inside the prison, among them to shine His light.

He began to share the gospel of Jesus Christ among his fellow prisoners.  Some responded to the gospel’s call.  Some didn’t but were comforted in prayer.  He also prayed for a Bible and repeatedly asked the guards for one.

And to answer his prayers God used the prison Imam, who prayed with the Muslim inmates, offered to help him.

He was impressed by our commitment to our God,” Hosseini recalled. “I think it was God who filled his heart with kindness for us.

The Imam realized smuggling a Bible into the prison would be impossible.  But he had an idea.  He would bring in printouts of the Bible disguised as an English lesson.  One of Hosseini’s friends in the same prison ward would translate the scriptures into Farsi.

Hosseini then copied the pages and gave them out to prisoners who had asked for them.  It wasn’t long until all of the prisoners knew that Bible verses were circulating.

We even got requests from other wards,” he remembers. “People were asking us for more. And the best thing was that prisoners were giving their lives to the Jesus of the Bible.

Looking back to his days in the prison, Hosseini said: “I never prayed for God to release me from prison. I can serve God anywhere, inside or outside of prison. It doesn’t matter what situation I’m in. I can work in God’s Kingdom wherever He places me.”

And at that time God placed me among the prisoners,” he added.

Dangote’s encounter with Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa

Benson Idahosa (Arch Bishop) is Africa’s patriarch of modern day Pentecostalism. The story is told about the encounter between Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa and Aliko Dangote

Aliko Dangote was born into a wealthy home in Kano. He got his first degree in Cairo, Egypt. He had always loved trading , and reports say he hawked sweets even as a primary school child , even though his family was wealthy. Dangote is really a very humble person even by the confessions of people who have interacted with him.

But Dangote is not the only hardworking Nigerian. He is not the only humble person around . He is probably not the most business savvy in Africa. But he is certainly the richest Blackman in the world . His companies employ over 11 , 000 people directly – not to mention , distributors, contractors and other vendors who depend on his businesses to thrive . Dangote is a blessing to humanity.

There is no family in Nigeria today that does not have a Dangote product in their home. If it is not sugar, then it is salt or the house you are living in was built with a Dangote Cement . Everyone has something to do with his business , so like Job he earns a little off everyone and that is the way to get wealthy.

Dangote is the 23rd richest person in the world and is said to be the second most powerful African alive . The question is how did Dangote attain such a height ? Yes, you can’ t take away his hard work and business acumen, but that is only the starting point. The answer will not be found in the Forbes Magazine or on Wikipedia. The answer is in the verse of scripture quoted above : If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land .

The Encounter with Idahosa

Sometime in the early 90s Dangote had an encounter that set his foot on the path of destiny. Archbishop BensonIdahosa had some guests TL Osborn, an American pentecostal Evangelist, and his wife, Daisy in Benin who needed to travel back urgently from Benin to Lagos to catch up their flight to the US . Unfortunately by the time the Archbishop took his guests to the airport they were told that the last flight for the day was overbooked and not a single seat was available. As a matter of fact , the passengers have boarded and were about to take off. Idahosa asked for the plane to be delayed a few minutes and walked to the tarmac where he was allowed to address the passengers. He pleaded with them about the desperate situation of his guests and asked that two persons should donate their seats for his guests to get to Lagos .

Everyone in that plane was a Christian . Not one of them batted an eyelid. Some pretended to be asleep, some pretended to be praying and the man of God stood waiting . From the back of the plane , a young man asked the person sitting next to him to get up and together they vacated their seat for the American visitors. Idahosa stopped him in the aisle of the plane and asked , “ Youngman , what is your name and what do you do ?” “ My name is Dangote , Aliko Dangote and this is my assistant . I am a trader, a businessman .”

It was there and then, that Papa Idahosa prophesied to him that “ the World will get up for you”. He prayed that God should take his business beyond Africa and bless him beyond measure . Today we see that prophesy manifesting . God destined that blessing for someone seated in that plane that evening. But there was a condition attached to it – Isa 1 :19 If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey , then I will make you rich! Dangote ’ s wealth today was not meant for a Christian businessman who was too proud, too fixated in his mind to offer the “ flamboyant man of God” , the “ prosperity preacher” his seat .

My question is, if you were there on that plane , would you have taken the blessing? Read another version of this story on Rev Sunday Adelaja blogs
