Whatever object you use, you may want to coat it a time or two with a water-proof epoxy, and/or put a tarp in it.

You may also want to buy a pump/filter from Walmart, Academy Sports, etc.

These options may not be more practical or less expensive than traditional pools from the store…but if you or someone you know already has one of these items and some free time on your hands, you could be swimming in no time! 🙂

Remedy for gray hair & baldness

IMG_2337

Onion juice

Research has found that grey hair is primarily caused by a buildup of hydrogen peroxide at the root of hair follicles and that this is due in great part to a reduction in the natural antioxidant compound catalase. In addition to helping cleanse the scalp and follicles, onion juice also promotes the production of catalase. Catalase prevents grey hair as well as promotes thicker hair follicles. It is also shown to work for the skin condition vitiligo.

How-to: Divide your hair into four sections, then apply the onion juice on your scalp not on your hair. Massage gently and leave it on for 15 minutes till 1 hour, then rinse you hair well. Apply it daily and after 2 weeks ( at least) you may see great results. Shampoo afterwards to help remove the onion odor.
