By the sun, hair loses brilliance and begins to break. Especially if they are thin and rather dry. How to take care of summer hair? First of all use UV hair cosmetics. It is also important to moisturize them after coming back from the beach.

The natural shield that protects the hair from the sun is melanin. The more melanin, the better the protection. Therefore, dark hair is more resistant to UV radiation, and blond, dyed  and gray hair are more susceptible.

How to protect your hair from the sun?

In sunny days you have to protect your hair just as carefully as your skin. So you need hair cosmetics with filters. In the drugstore you will find a whole range of preparations specifically for use in the sun. Such products in addition to filters contain moisturizing, nourishing and regenerating ingredients, such as ceramides, vitamins A, B, E, F, H, jojoba oil, marine collagen or macadamia oil.

Do you know that...?

The properties of parsley have been known for over 2000 years. Leaves, fruits and roots of parsley have been used in folk medicine for centuries. Fresh leaves of parsley are very useful and can be used as a component of a healthy diet. The root of parsley is used to treat cystitis and rheumatic complaints. Fresh vegetables, including parsley,  are a valued herbal remedy for menstrual pain. Common parsley is rich in provitamin A, vitamin C, mineral salts and iron.

Vitamins and minerals in the parsley (calcium, magnesium and potassium) have a positive effect on blood circulation and iron helps fight anemia. Parsley also helps to remove toxins from the body.

Vitamin A works well for vision, especially at dusk. One tablespoon of parsley supplies daily requirement for vitamin C. Therefore, it is worth adding it to dishes, especially during periods of weakening of the body (spring solstice). In addition, the parsley refreshes the breath.

Learning foreign languages becomes much easier when you know how the brain works!

If you want to learn a language in harmony with the brain:
1.       Synchronize both hemispheres of the brain while learning
In order to increase the flow of information between the hemispheres, it would be ideal to make some exercises such as juggling, alternating movements, and writing with both hands at the same time.

2.       Speak words, phrases and sentences aloud
There are 2 main centers for speech. One of them (Broka’s area) deals with speech production and the other (Wernicke’s area) is responsible for speech understanding

3.       Listen, listen, listen to understand better
Wernicke’s area is connected to the auditory cortex of the brain. So, when you want to learn to understand well, you have to listen in a foreign language. This will allow you not only to listen to the melody of the language, but also to absorb phrases and words unconsciously.

4.       Create rich language environment
Stick the words on the objects around you. Listen to songs in a foreign language. Watch foreign language movies. Speak in a particular language, read as much as possible, and even try to think in that language!

5.       Start learning the language as soon as possible
It is known that children are the fastest learners of language, but nothing is lost J
The best time to learn foreign languages is NOW! No matter how old you are. 13, 18, 27, 38 or 66. The brain is so plastic that it can handle a new language.

6.       Constantly turn up your motivation to learn because:

Two is a Family / Demain tout commence

The man who runs a carefree life must take care of his daughter unexpectedly. Previously, he didn't know about her existence.
This new film is highly appreciated by the audience. I have to go to the cinema soon, I can't wait =)

Supposedly, this movie  has the power to release emotions and  goes very smoothly from comedy to drama. Moreover, the main role is played by Omar Sy known for the production such as: "The Intouchables" and "Samba". I think it could be interesting. :)
And you, have you watched the new box office hit?

Because the name of my blog is "pineapple", I prepared the recipe for:

Succulent chicken breast fried with sweet pineapple and seasoned with curry, honey and a hint of ginger.
500 g chicken breast
6 slices of fresh pineapple
1 average onion
150 ml pineapple juice
100 ml of cream 18%
4 teaspoons of curry powder
2 teaspoons of grated ginger (or 2/3 teaspoon of ginger powder)
2 tablespoons of honey
Salt, freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Wash and drain the chicken breast.  Cut it to thin strips, roughly equal in size. Put the meat in a bowl, Sprinkle 3 teaspoons of curry spice so that it covers every piece of meat. Leave it  in a cool place for at least 30 minutes.
In a frying pan, heat the oil and fry diced onion. When it begins to glaze, add the meat and fry until it blushes. Then add ginger, honey, garlic and sliced pineapple and pineapple juice. Fry it together until the juice partially evaporates.
When the sauce is partially reduced, add cream, season with salt, pepper and curry. If the sauce is too sparse, leave the pan for a while on the fire to make the sauce evaporate. It can also be  thickened with a teaspoon of potato flour (previously distributed in a small amount of cold water).

Serve with rice

Cocktails - a dose of energy, health and beauty!
Cocktails are a healthy variation of your daily diet and a great way to look good.

Cocktails - milky, green, protein
Although the most popular are milkshakes, based on milk, buttermilk, yogurt or kefir, cocktails can also be made with water. Fruit and vegetable cocktails are also enriched with spices, herbs, cereals and bran or white cheese - not only to give them a special taste, but also to make them a source of important substances.

Cocktails - for health and beauty
Cocktails successfully replace dietary supplements, usually eaten in the form of tablets. Compared to supplements, drinking cocktails is a cheaper solution, more pleasant and certainly more beneficial for the body. Cocktails are good for both health and beauty, which is mostly in the form of beautiful complexion.

Here are some examples:

Milk cocktail with berries
Ingredients: buttermilk, berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or cranberries), sugar or honey and eventually cereal bran.

Refreshing cocktail
Kephir, tangerine, lemon juice, sugar or honey

Green cocktail
Ingredients: yoghurt, frozen spinach, banana, kiwi, bran, honey and a bit of cardamom

bon appétit :)
