Have you ever thought of onion juice as anything other than a cooking ingredient? Well, I never did myself until I found an amazing use of it: i.e. hair growth. Yes!! That’s right!
Surprised? Here is how it works:
Onions have rich sulfur content in them. Onion juices when applied on the scalp alone or in combination with other hair loss remedy ingredients can improve the blood circulation to the scalp.
Sulfur also improves the production of collagen tissues which are necessary for the growth of hair. Hair grows from the hair follicles in the scalp and increased blood supply to the scalp brings better nutrients and nourishment to the follicles and promotes hair growth.
The sulfur content in the juice also has anti-bacterial properties which prevents the growth of fungi and bacteria on the scalp and reduces the chances of losing hair due to these infections. Onion juice thus increases the strength of the hair and prevents thinning and breakage.
We can achieve improved hair volume by regularly applying the onion juice on the scalp for twice a week.
Onion rinse for Hair Growth:
- Take an onion, peel it off.
- Use food processor, blender or grater to chop off the onion.
- Extract the juice by using a sieve. (You may use a juicer, if you have one.)
- Apply this juice on the scalp, focusing on the bald patches, and leave for 20 – 25 minutes.
- Wash off with mild shampoo and use conditioner.
The pungent smell of onion might be unbearable. But it lasts for a small period of time and will be gone in an hour or so. (Tip: don’t use it before heading out).
Use this recipe twice a week for a very noticeable change in hair growth.
Honey and Onion Juice Mixture for Hair Growth:
Take ¼ cup of onion juice and 1 tablespoon of honey. You can either drink it daily or apply it on your hair twice a week to see amazing change in the hair growth.
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
ACV is a very useful organic hair thickening ingredient. Take 2 cups of water and add 2 tablespoons of ACV in it. For ease of use, spray the concoction on the hair to dampen it and then wear a shower cap. Wash it off after half an hour with a mild shampoo.
The often asked question: how long will it take for the perfect results?
Giving a time frame is not possible for hair growth, as natural remedies take time. Moreover, hair and skin types may react differently from person to person. But this is a sure and easy method with absolutely no side effects.
