Losing hair is never fun, especially when you’re still young! Everyone dreams about a thick head of healthy, shiny hair, but unfortunately, we don’t all have it. The good news is that hair loss can be treated, and there is no need for expensive pills or strange treatments. You can make your own healthy hair loss treatment in your own home, using only household ingredients.
Onion doesn’t conjure the most pleasant olfactory memories, but its juice is incredibly beneficial, when it comes to your hair. Onion is rich in sulfur (that is the component that irritates your eyes and makes you cry), which can stimulate hair regrowth through increased blood circulation and hair follicle stimulation. This makes onion one of the very best treatments to combat hair loss or consistent hair thinning.
In addition, sulfur is also contained by numerous other components that are absolutely vital for the health and vitality of your hair, such as keratin, amino acids and collagen. If you add in the fact that it can also help you get rid of dandruff and stop gray hairs from coming in, you might wonder why you haven’t started using onions on your hair sooner.
The recipe detailed here also contains honey, which will condition your hair, treat its split ends and provide it with a healthy shine.
What you need:
- In addition, you may also use an essential oil to mask the smell
What to do:
Start the process by peeling, chopping and blending an onion. After that, take the blended onion pulp and put it through a strainer. What you want from it is the juice, so you’re going to want to press it with the back of a spoon, to make the juice come out. You can now add your honey; 1 to 2 teaspoons should be enough. According to preference, opt for an essential oil that will successfully mask the unpleasant smell of onion. The treatment is now ready to be used.
How you can use it:
Begin by applying the mixture all over your head and massage it well into your scalp and potential or existent bald patches. Leave it for a minimum of half an hour, in order to give it time to work properly. It is recommended to use this treatment on a day when you have time to let it sit. Alternatively, you can massage it in and then cover your hair and leave it overnight. Just make sure that your head is properly covered (you can use a shower cap, for example), so it won’t leak all over your pillow or your face. In the morning, simply wash the mix out of your hair. For best results, make sure to use the treatment on a daily basis for at least a couple of months.
Hair loss doesn’t have to be a life sentence. You can slow down, stop or even reverse the process by using certain treatments. The best part is that you can prepare this treatment at home and you will obtain the same (or even better) results as those expensive treatments advertised on TV.
