I hope you all are healthy and safe.
Today, we are going to look into few easy ways to use Onions at your home as a remedy for controlling hair fall and pre-mature hair graying problems in teenagers and adults.
Several studies are available which tells you about the benefits of using onions for your hair growth and treating other hair related issues but none of them are scientifically proven yet. However, everyone knows, onions are a very good source of sulfur, zinc, folic acid, carotene, potassium, Vitamin B, C, and E which are extremely beneficial for good health of our hairs.
I personally started using raw onions for my hairs from past 1 month and I use it every time before having my hair wash. For now, I am not sure about new hair growth benefits of onions as it has been a month only, but yeah, onion hair mask has tremendously stopped my issue of heavy hair fall, which is a big-big relief for me... I also do feel the difference in texture of my hairs, like, I used to have dark brown shade of my hairs but now, they have become more in black color. So, I am quiet happy with the results of onion for my hairs so far.
Let's, now jump directly into the preparation of an onion hair mask for treating hair fall problems -
Onion Hair Mask
Take 1 large onion and dice it into pieces
Put the diced onion into blender
Add Aloe Vera gel into it (I am using Aloe Vera leaf here but you can also use market based Aloe Vera gel)
Add 2-3 tbsp of Curd
Blend well to make a smooth paste
Apply this onion hair mask to the roots of your hairs and leave it for an hour. Wash your hairs afterwards with mild shampoo. Make sure, that you use a conditioner after using it as onion hair mask will make your hairs a little dry.
Onion Juice for Hairs
Take 1 large onion and finely chop it into tiny pieces
Put it on a muslin cloth or use a sieve to extract juice from onion pulp
Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil into it
Apply it over your scalp and do a gentle head massage. Leave it for 1-2 hours and wash your hair afterwards. You can skip using a conditioner after it as coconut oil will nourish your hairs and protect them from being dry and frizzy due to onion juice.
