It's been so looooooong since my last post, but i'm back with a great article on using natural remedies for hair growth.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Coconut Milk
- Green Vegetables
To achieve hair growth with the help of onion juice you need to extract the juice of the onions and apply it on the scalp thoroughly. Though, the juice has a pungent smell, the remedy is highly effective in achieving the results you need. You need to keep the juice on the scalp for at least 30 minutes. You can keep it for longer if you will be able to bear the smell of the juice. Rinse off the juice using water and mild shampoo. You will have to repeat this remedy at least twice a week for at least two months to see the results. This is a natural remedy and it will take some time to give the expected result.
Simple Methods Of Using Onion for Hair Growth
1. Onion Juice-Honey Mixture
You can use this remedy in two different ways. You can mix ¼ cup of onion juice with one honey tablespoon of honey and you can consume it orally every day or you can apply the mix on the scalp and massage it for 15 minutes daily to see the difference.
2. Concoction Of Onion Juice And Rum
If you find the smell of onions unbearable you can use this method to prevent the loss of hair and to improve the growth of hair. Finely chop one medium sized onion and soak this in a glass of rum overnight. Next day, strain the mixture to remove the onion pieces. Use the concoction to massage the scalp or use it as a hair rinse after washing the hair.
3. Add Onion In Your Recipes
You can include onions in regular recipes and in salads to get the benefits of using onion. This will not act as fast as applying the juice to the hair.
4. Onion Juice Hair Rinse
This is another method of using onions for hair growth without getting tears and irritation to eyes. Add 4-5 chopped onion to one litre of water and boil it for about 10 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool and strain the mixture. Use the onion boiled water to rinse your hair after shampooing. If you are not bothered with the smell you need not wash the hair with water that day. You can clean your hair using water and mild shampoo next day.
Hair is part of the personality of a person. If you are worried about your excessive hair loss, you can try the above remedy. Select a method convenient to you and stick to it for at least two months. Your hair will first achieve a good sheen and slowly you will see your hair becoming stronger and thicker. To boost your hair growth, you can also massage your hair and scalp with a mixture of olive oil, coconut oil and almond oil once in a week. You can achieve better results, if you leave the oil overnight on your hair. Always eat a healthy diet to prevent hair loss and to promote the re-growth of the hair.
