Hair loss or thinning hair is one of the main concerns of those who are already aging, although there are people who are born with relatively thin hair. For some, even during their young age, they are already observing that their hair is just getting thinner and grayer, and it results in lower self-confidence and self-esteem.
Like what many people say, our hair is our “crowning glory” and that is why we must do everything to make it look healthy and beautiful. Some people are even spending a great deal of money just to get a successful hair treatment for whatever hair issues they have.
For those who are suffering from hair loss, you don’t actually have to spend a lot because there are very simple, yet effective home remedies that you can try. And one of the most popular of them is homemade onion juice and honey.
Onion juice and honey is one of the most excellent ways to promote hair growth, and that is because of the sulfur content in the onion juice. Sulfur is known to be a chemical that does not only improve blood circulation, but also improve and promote the growth of your hair. It even has the ability to stop any infection on your scalp that possibly hampers hair growth because of its anti-bacterial property.
On the other hand, honey is the one that makes your hair looking shiny and healthy because it is rich with antioxidants and it moisturizes your hair so it does not look dull and dry. When these two elements are combined, you are on your way to achieving a great and healthy hair you desire.
Here are the steps for the preparation and application.
- If your hair is short, all you need is ¼ cup of onion juice mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey. If you have a longer hair and you think you need more, just double the amount for both ingredients. You can get an onion juice by extracting the juice of chopped onions with the use of a blender or food processor.
- Apply the mixture on your scalp and leave it there for 30 minutes or you also have the option to leave it overnight. Some people prefer to leave it on their scalp for a couple of hours for better results.
- Rinse your hair thoroughly.
