Thinning hair & hair loss can be a bit unnerving, especially for those with baldness in the family.
While there are many OTC treatments and some even try medical procedures, usually as a last resort though.
There is, however, a home remedy that although is not very appealing, has been known to help reverse the effects of hair loss and promote hair growth.
We’re talking about onions! Onion is rich in sulfur which is a mineral that is one of the building blocks of hair.
Onions improve blood circulation that nourishes the hair follicles. Not only that, but onions also contain anti-bacterial properties that help with scalp infections that may contribute to hair loss.
We are going to discuss a few ways you can use onions to stop hair loss and get your hair back it’s thickness.
How To Make an Onion Hair Rinse
Peel and chop an onion into small pieces, then extract the juice using a food processor or strainer.
Add 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar and a few drops fresh lemon juice to help with the smell.
Massage onto your scalp, making sure to cover any bald spots. Let the mixture sit for at least 15 minutes before washing out with shampoo.
Onion Paste for Hair Growth
This is great for if you are trying to get your hair to grow faster or thicken your thinning locks.
Mix 1/3 cup of onion juice with 1 1/2 tablespoon honey. Apply paste to your scalp and leave it for 30 minutes before rinsing your hair out.
You can also use a shower cap to cover your hair and leave the mixture in overnight for best results.
