The most common and stressful problem all of us face is – HAIRFALL. We all are aware that Pollution and Harmful Sun Rays are our hair’s enemy. Every day, even after protecting our hair with scarves or caps, it still gets damaged and loses its natural shine. This problem is not only prevalent in females, but males also go through the same issue.
There are hundreds and thousands of hair care tips which we all have heard of. In my previous article, I have shared one of the hair care tips – Tea Tree Oil for a healthy scalp. And, now I will be sharing with you the benefits of massaging “Onion Oil” onto your hair scalp. It is turning out to be one of the most popular hair care products.
Better when Made at Home:
Onion is something we all have in our kitchen. Apart from making yummy dishes, it is very beneficial for our hair also. Onion oil is easy to make and guess what, inexpensive too. You just need:
- 10-12 gm Onion paste
- 100 gm melted Coconut Oil
Grind the onions to make a paste. Add this to the oil. I also added curry leaves to the mixture to mask the onion smell as well as make the oil more beneficial. Now, heat the mixture of the paste and oil in a saucepan. Let it boil, after getting its first boil, simmer it until oil remains. Let the mixture cool down. After some time, strain the oil and your onion oil is ready to use. Store it in an airtight container and use it on alternate days for better results.
How Onion Oil Benefits Your Hair?
Onions are rich in Sulfur, one of the components of Keratin present in hair. Along with sulphur, onion is also a source for Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 as well as folate (folic acid). It is also loaded with essential nutrients and minerals, iron, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants like flavonoids.
Let me list down the various benefits of using onion oil:
- Fights the dandruff problem
- Helps in longer and thicker hair growth
- Minimizes split ends and thinning of hair
- Nourishes hair follicle making the hair stronger
- Prevents premature greying of hair
- Maintains the regular pH of hair
- Controls frizz and dryness
So, now you know that regular use of this amazing onion hair oil is touted to provide your hair with all the nourishment as well as fights with all the major hair problems. There are many marketed onion oil products, but I will suggest you all to take some time out and make your own homemade hair oil. It’s very convenient and most importantly free of any preservatives or chemicals.
“I hope I am the solution for all your hair problems, and bring happy tears in your eyes…” – Your Onion.
