Hair problems are a common problem everyone faces. Whether it is losing excessive amount of hair, having hair that is very thin or fine, having curly hair, or having naturally oily hair, there is always something that can cause issues.
Hair can be a source of stress for many people. Getting your hair done at the salon can be very expensive, and doing it yourself can be time consuming. Luckily, there are several ways to treat the issues you have with your hair at home!
Using honey to tighten your curls is a natural way to treat the curl pattern in your hair. Curls can feel loose and look disorganized, especially when wet. By applying honey to your dry hair, you will add some weight and organize the curl pattern so it looks more defined when dry.
Put the top on your pipe
Make sure that the top of your pipe is on tight. If the top of your pipe comes off while you are smoking, you will lose hold of some control.
Wind can pull smoke out of the hole in the top of the pipe, making it harder to keep your smoke in until you have VAwed.
Furthermore, if the top comes off completely, honey may be added to the bowl instead of tobacco. This ruins the whole point of vaping with honey, so make sure it is on tight!
Make sure that you take short, focused draws when vaping with honey. If you take long pulls, then more smoke will come out, giving less time for VAWing.
Shake vigorously for 5 minutes
This is the first step in preparing your honey for use. You will need a jar or bottle with an opening large enough to pour out the liquid. You will also need a lid for this container.
To start, gather your honey and a jar or bottle with an opening large enough to pour out the liquid. You will also need a lid for this container.
Next, you must decide how thick you want your Virginia honey. The more times you shake the honey, the thicker it will be. A typical thickness is called “cut”, which means half water and half honey. This makes it easier to use on foods that do not need much glazing or coating.
To achieve a thicker cut of Virginia honey, you must shake the container for at least five minutes. This will eventually form tiny crystals within the liquid that connect to each other, making the texture thicker.
Sit and smoke your pipe gently
Once you have your pipe lit, you must know how to use it. The first thing you should do is sit down and relax. You do not want to rush this process!
Once you are comfortable, take a few puffs on your pipe and then place it down. The key here is to smoke gently so that you do not burn the tobacco out too quickly.
As the smoke rises up the pipe, you should slowly rotate the pipe so that the smoke distributes across the top of the bowl. The more even the color of the smoke is, the better.
This is because then you have smoked all of the tobacco out and did not waste any! Once you no longer see any color of smoke coming out, then it is time to take another pull on your pipe.
Try taking gentle pulls so that you do not push down on the top of the bowl with your finger or foot, which could cause some of the tobacco to burn early.
Brush the tobacco out of your pipe occasionally
A pipe needs to be cleaned out from time to time. When you do this, you will need a bowl brush, tobacco ash or tobacco powder, and some tap water.
First, rinse out your pipe with tap water to remove any leftover smoke. Then, add some tobacco ash or powder to the bottom of the pipe and shake it back and forth until the interior is clean.
Next, fill the pipe with warm water and let it sit for a few minutes. Finally, pour out the water and brush out the remaining bits of tobacco using the bowl brush. Your pipe is now ready for your next smoke!
If your pipe has a fitted tamper, make sure to clean that as well using cigar ashes.
Replace the honey over time with sugar
Once you are comfortable with your new, improved you, you can start to replace the honey with sugar. As time goes on, you will need more and more sugar to satisfy your craving.
This is not a race and no one is judging you on how much sugar you consume. Take your time and enjoy the journey!
By the time you are completely satisfied with sugar, you will be able to eat it in moderation and not feel any cravings for honey. You will also have a healthier relationship with food because you understand what foods affect your body.
You may even find that once you’re at this point, you don’t really like sugary foods all that much anymore.
Use less sugar over time
While most people appreciate the health benefits of honey, it can also be used to reduce sugar cravings. Many people struggle with eating a healthy amount of carbohydrates, particularly those in foods like bread and pasta.
Using honey as a sweetener in recipes can also help you reduce your sugar intake as well. By baking with honey instead of sugar, you are reducing the carbohydrate content of your recipe.
Baking also requires some skill, so taking this extra step may help prevent excessive consumption of baked goods. Baking is also cost effective so you are not spending too much money on ingredients.
If you find yourself craving sweets, try using less honey over time and see if you notice a difference. You may find that you get used to the taste and don’t feel the need to keep adding more sweetness.
Use a dry wine instead of honey
If you do not have any honey, you can also use another sweetener in place of it. Many people use sugar, but this can cause thearea to become infected.
Sugar does not promote the growth of good bacteria like honey does. Using sugar instead may cause additional skin problems like a yeast infection.
Other alternatives include using agave nectar, maple syrup, or brown sugar.
Use a tart fruit instead of sugar or honey
If you do not have honey or sugar, you can still cure a Virginia with a tart fruit like lemon or orange. Simply slice the fruit and place it in the bowl with the peels.
Like we said before, vinegar breaks down the glucose in honey, so using lemon or orange instead of sugar or honey will still cure your cracker. The difference is that the flavor of the fruit will come through as well.
It may seem strange, but try it and see! You will still have a delicious crisp cracker that is baked crisp enough to break into pieces.
This recipe is great because you can use what you have on hand. If you do not have any honey, that is fine! Skip it and use a tart fruit instead. Or if you do not have any sugar, use a different sweetener like brown sugar or coconut sugar.
