Does rice water work magic on your hair? I decided to test the viral method and the results were unbelievably amazing.

I was routinely scrolling through TikTok, when I discovered a video, that would change my hair care routine forever.

In the video, an influencer was attributing the silky texture of her hair to the rice water rinse.

So, I decided to test it out myself and see if the hack is actually true or not. The results exceeded all my expectations.

I didn’t research throughly enough the first time and used the wrong application method, but even then…


The publication is getting a makeover and here’s what the reader will get.

I started this publication to raise awareness of climate change and connect the science and the general public.

There are a lot of climate news and science articles out there. They provide detailed narratives, scientific background, and expertise.

However, unless they are breaking news, these stories are usually hidden in designated sections (for example, to find the most recent CNN Climate Change story, I have to go to the expanded list of their sections at the very bottom of the home page and select Weather: Climate)

Climate change has disrupted the seasonal weather, saturating it with hurricanes, floods, and disasters that forced more than 10 million people out of their homes in the last year.

Since ecocide has been the most recent buzzword in the climate news, I decided to write an article defining the term and discussing it in detail.

Powerful support


Today is Earth Day, so let’s honor the holiday by making some easy swaps and change our life for the better.

I have started my low-waste journey 2 years ago. I was a clueless undergrad studying in New York and definitely had a tight budget.

I explored a lot and realized that there are a lot of ways to be sustainable that doesn’t involve splurging on every single eco-swap in an overpriced zero waste shops, although I definitely wanted to do it, that can be spotted around the city.

So, on 51st Earth Day, when everyone tries to save electricity…
