The weather is moderately unpredictable these days. And If in this weather, you consider of going to bed with wet hair, you must think twice.
No worries, we’re here to support you and let you know that whether going to bed with wet hair will always end up with giving you cold and a sore throat or you can actually try it.
Scroll down to read more.
The chance of catching cold when sleeping with wet hair depends on the temperature of the bedroom. The loss of heat energy is more if the temperature of the room is much less than the normal.
Common cold is caught by a virus and not by wet hair…
But some studies reveal that spending more time in a colder room with wet hair makes the body more susceptible to the virus. Thus, going to bed with wet hair must be avoided unless the room is warm and airy.
And if you are planning to go to bed with wet hair, we have some easy tricks to wake up with gorgeous hair in the morning!
1) Making waves
Flip your head upside down and create four loose and messy buns of twisted (but not tightly) hair and tie the buns individually. You’ll wake up with wonderful curls in the morning!
You can blow dry your hair for a while before tying them in a messy bun to create more curls.
Braid your damp hair before going to bed to wake up with luscious locks in the morning. Don’t keep the braids too tight. Remove the braids in the morning, shake your head and let the braids open naturally.
3) The Scrunchie/Sock technique
If you are troubled by hair creasing in your sleep, loosely tie your hair above your head using a scrunchie and secure it in a bun. If you don’t find a scrunchie at that moment, use a sock by cutting its top and use it as a hair tie instead.
This is a pretty easy technique for hair styling. Flip your wet hair and pile it on a thin cotton towel (cotton t-shirts give the best result) and wrap it tightly above your head. Fluff your hair in the morning after removing the towel and win the world!
5) Change your bedding
If you want to wake up with straight hair, use a silk bedding. The smooth fabric of the silk provides less friction to your hair and keeps it smooth and straight.
It’s time to flaunt your beautiful hair after a sound sleep!
According to a new research, kissing can lead to various condition as well. Some of these conditions are quite serious. A 10-second kiss can carry up to 80 million gems. The exchanging of saliva usually causes these diseases.
Read on to get to remember more about them.
This disease is also known as the “kissing disease.” It can be spread through saliva and is caused by Epstein-Barr virus or EBV. There is no treatment available for Mononucleosis. Symptoms are very similar to those of the flu and include a fever, sore throat, fatigue, muscle weakness and swollen lymph glands.
There is a very high chance that Cold sores can be transferred through kissing as they are open and even have a fluid present in them. These cold sores generally are present on the upper lip or around it. Cold sores are caused due to the Herpes virus.
Hand, foot and mouth disease
The hand, foot and mouth disease is mainly caused because of open sores in the mouth. As the name suggests, it is caused on hands, mouth or even feet. This disease can be transferred through kissing. It is also common among children in daycare and preschools.
Strep throat is caused by the “strep” bacteria. This bacteria travels through air and can be transferred through kissing or even when a person sneezes.
Periodontitis can be transferred through saliva. Hence, this disease can not only be transferred through kissing, it can also be transferred by sharing toothbrushes or even sharing of food.
This disease can be spread from one person to another via respiratory secretions. Kissing can lead to Viral Meningitis. Viral Meningitis is less severe than the bacterial one, but it too is harmful.
Mumps is a viral infection which is harmful as they affect the salivary glands and cause them to swell. It usually spreads via airborne droplets from the nose or throat of an infected person. Mumps can easily be prevented using vaccines.
Influenza is generally transmitted through the air. It can easily be transmitted from person to person with saliva exchange or even sneezing.
Baba Vanga (Vangelia) Pandeva was born on January 31, 1911 and she died on August 11, 1996 . She lived in the city of Petrich, Bulgaria .
Information about Vanga Pandeva and some of her predictions:
– She was born on the territory of modern Macedonia – the land which was an apple of discord for years between Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia.
– Vanga lost her sight when she was 12. She was swept away by a mighty tornado. Later she was found alive, covered with dirt and stones, with sand in her eyes. She became blind as a result.
– Vanga started making predictions when she was 16. She helped her father find a sheep stolen from the flock. She provided a detailed description of a yard where the animal was being hidden by the thieves. Her powers of foreseeing took shape after she turned 30.
– Many a statesman visited Vanga. Adolf Hitler called on her one day. He left her house looking rather upset.
– She was buried in a churchyard of the Saint Petca Bulgarian Church in the Rupite region. Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova’s interest in politics was not incidental.
– Vanga died in 1996 and predicted many of the major global shocks such as the tsunami of 2004 or the attack on the Twin Towers. And now, one last omen seems to begin to be fulfilled: according Baba Yanga, 2016 would be the year that “Muslims will invade Europe”.
– Yanga Baba prophesied that in 2018 China will be the first “super power” in the world, taking the lead from the already worn U.S, plus, she added, in the same year a space probe will discover “a new form of energy” in planet Venus.
Note: That is not the end of the story, the great seer even said that things will start deteriorate for the U.S, and that the “African American” president would be “the last” acting president of the northern country.
– Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova also predicted the attacks on the Twin Towers, when in 1989 she said:
– As predicted and happened, The World Trade Center Towers in New York collapsed following terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 . The WTC Towers were dubbed “Twins” or “Brothers.” The terrorists drove passenger planes –“the steel birds”- into the towers. “The bush” obviously relates to the surname of the current U.S. president.
– She also anticipated the devastating tsunami in 2004 that hit the Thai coast,“a big wave will cover a large coast with people and villages where everything disappears under water.”
– She also said that in 2023 the Earth’s orbit would change, which would “melt the poles” and set fire in the “Middle East” The old woman said: “great Islamic war” would begin in Syria culminating in complete control of Rome, in 2043.
– It also stated that there would be established a definitive Caliphate and that Europe “would cease to exist”, to become a continent “almost empty “and” wastelands devoid of any form of life. ”
One of the most shocking prediction was made in 1980. The blind old woman said: “At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it.”
The prediction did not make any sense back then. Twenty years on, it made a horrifying sense. A Russian nuclear submarine perished in an accident in August of 2000. The sub was named after the city of Kursk , which by no means could have been covered with water.
Among the many predictions, there are some quite exotic, such as ensuring that aliens will help man to live underwater in 2130, or a possible war on Mars in 3005. Finally, perhaps the most fantastic yet the most apocalyptic Vanga assured that there will be no survivors on Earth, circa 3797.
Listed below are some of the predictions for the coming years:
Year 2017 – Muslims will invade Europe.
Year 2023 – There will be major changes in the Earth’s orbit.
Year 2025 – The population of Europe will disappear as a result of wars.
Year 2028 – There comes an attempt to go to other planets like Venus, hopin to other sources of energy to Earth.
Year 2033 – Water levels rise due to the melting of the poles.
Year 2076 – Communism contagious return to Europe and the rest of the world.
Year 2084 – The rebirth of nature.
Year 2100 – A new sun illuminates the dark side of the planet. This could refer to a scientific project that began in 2008 and will create an artificial sun using nuclear energy.
Year 2130 – extraterrestrial civilizations might reach our planet.
Year 2170 – Global Drought.
Year 2187 – Two large volcanoes erupt.
Year 2262 – Mars is threatened by a comet.
Year 2480 – Two artificial Suns collide and leave the Earth in total darkness.
Year 3005 – A war on Mars will change the trajectory of the planet.
Year 3010 – A comet reaches the Moon, so the Earth is covered by a ring of rocks and ashes.
Year 3797 – The Earth dies but mankind has advanced enough to move to a new solar system.
year 5079 – The universe will end.

My name is Kingsley, a 35-year-old man. I have been married to Niki for three years now but I think I made a big mistake settling down with her because of her flirtatious tendencies.
We have a daughter which I adore – in fact, it was the pregnancy that made me marry her as I did not want to have a child outside wedlock – but I am now sure I made a big mistake.
I met Niki when she came to market her bank in our company and while we were dating, many friends tried to dissuade me from taking the relationship serious with stories of what female bank marketers do to get and retain their rich customers but I felt Niki was different.
Apart from being very beautiful with a very good carriage, Niki always has a way when she wants to get something and she made me believe she only used her persuasive abilities to get her clients.
Along the line, she got pregnant and my mother insisted I must get married to her. But since we got married, I have come to the sad realization that my wife is not only sleeping around with the so-called clients but doing so brazenly.
There was a time she called that her boss told her to wait behind for some account reconciliation and would be home late but when I later called one of her colleagues who is a family friend, she innocently told me that she and Niki left the office at the same time and wondered who told her to stay behind as the boss she mentioned was not even in town.
At times, my wife would get a call during weekends and tell me her attention was needed in the office and I often wondered why a bank would want a marketer to always come in and help sort out issues.
I knew she was lying to me but since I had no prove, I could not accuse her until I made this strange discovery of a pack of condoms in her handbag.
She was in the bathroom and I needed the car keys and asked her where she kept it because she was the person that used it the night before.
She called back that I should look in her bag for the keys and when I opened her bag, I was shocked when I saw the packet of condom hidden in the bag.
I brought it out and noticed that two condoms had been used. I was deflated and sat down like a defeated man. When she came out of the bathroom and saw me with the condoms, she just stood there and stared at me.
I knew she was cooking up a nice tale to give me but I did not give her the chance. I stood up and left the house and drove to a friend’s place where I stayed till very late before going back home.
She tried to bring up the issue but I told her I was not in a mood to discuss it and in the morning, I took our daughter to my mom though I did not tell her or anyone what my wife did.
Since then, she has been begging me to forgive but how could I ever forgive such a woman? I think I am done with this marriage.
Dear readers, after going through Kingsley’s pathetic story, what would you advise him to do?
