    Why Should You Use Onion on Your Hair?

    As research grows, onions continue to be admired for their many health and even medicinal benefits. Onions are praised for having anti-inflammatory properties and being rich in antioxidants.

    When used in your hair, onions have been highlighted for their ability to stimulate hair growth. This is great news for those who have thinning hair and are looking for better volume and thickness.

    Why Should You Use Onion on Your Hair

    Not only does onion promote new hair growth, but it also helps to nourish and treat the hair that is already in place. A regular onion treatment can also:

    • Moisturize dry hair
    • Hydrate the scalp
    • Reduce dandruff
    • Bring nutrients and antioxidants to hair follicles
    • Soothe itching

    How to Do the Onion Hair Treatment

    The home onion treatment is a great way to incorporate the powerful effects of onion juice straight into your hair. To complete the onion treatment, you should take the following steps.

    • Extract the Onion Juice

    Unfortunately, rubbing a whole onion on your hair will not do much good for your hair, so the first step to the treatment is to create a good extract. To do so, cut an onion into small pieces. Then place the pieces into a food processor to make them even smaller and liquefy the chopped onion. Lastly, pour the result into a cheesecloth to separate the juices from the remaining pieces.

    • Add in Supplemental Ingredients

    Other natural ingredients can make great supplements to your onion extract. Ingredients like honey, coconut, and lemon juice can help improve the scent of the extract while also introducing additional nutrients and antioxidants. Some options include

    • Combining 3 parts onion juice with 2 parts lemon juice
    • Adding 1 part honey to 4 parts onion juice
    • Including 1 part olive oil for every 3 parts of onion juice
    • Mixing 3 parts onion juice with 2 parts coconut oil with a splash of lime juice
    honey hair benefits, lemon treatment for hair

    Different combinations work better for different people, so it may take some experimentation to find what works best for you. Once you have made your decision, mix everything together well.

    • Apply It to Your Strands

    Once you have your perfect formula, apply it to your wet or dry hair. Pull the mixture through your hair like a shampoo or conditioner, applying to your strands from the roots down to the ends. If your goal is to soothe and hydrate your scalp, then you should focus extra on massaging the mixture gently into your scalp when you apply.

    After you have saturated your hair and scalp with your onion mixture, allow it to sit for about 20-30 minutes. This will allow your hair and scalp to absorb the nutrients.

    • Rinse Out the Formula

    After allowing the mixture to absorb into your hair, rinse it with warm water. Some people choose to rinse after 30 minutes, while others prefer to let the mixture remain overnight.

    Keep in mind that some individuals with sensitive scalps may experience some irritation in response to regular onion treatments. If you are cautious about how long you leave the treatment in your hair and especially avoid leaving the treatment overnight, you should be able to avoid any irritation.
