Be it summer or winter, 2017 or 1987. Long, luscious hair is never out of demand. Especially when you are trying to grow out the uneven bangs you got two months ago. Whether you're on a budget or are just the kind of person that likes to go all-natural whenever they can, the kitchen is a gift that keeps on giving - even beauty-wise! One such secret formula for long and healthy hair is in your kitchen itself.
Onions. Yes, you read that right - onions. Believe it or not those delicious but stinky little monsters have some magical enzymes that not only make your hair grow much faster, but also make them stronger and more voluminous. You only need a few basics from your kitchen slab to help them work their magic. So here are the five magical steps that should be your hair mantra for life, if you're a fan of long hair.
Step 1: Peel off the outer layer of an onion and chop it into small pieces.
Step 2: Place it in a blender and blend until you get a smooth pulp.
Step 3: Pour this pulp through a strainer and squeeze it to extract its juice.
Step 4: Mix the juice with your favorite hair oil, be it almond, olive or coconut.
Step 5: Apply this mix to your scalp and roots and thoroughly massage it.
Step 6: Rinse off with shampoo after 30-45 minutes. Repeat this process once or twice a week. You're bound to see results in a few weeks.
Apart from being great for speeding up hair growth, onion juice has many other benefits. A rich source of potassium and Vitamins A, C and E, onions nourish the hair and restore lost nutrients due to chemical treatments. They also minimise breakage and thinning because of their high sulfur content. It's a natural antioxidant, which is why they help reverse the effects of premature greying and make hair shiny. Onions also makes your hair uninhabitable for lice.
So what are you waiting for? Go chop some onions to change your hair game for the better.
