Onion For Hair Scalp Potion: Get Stunning Locks With Onions
Read time – 2 mins
Prep time – 1 min
“Onion for hair?,” Chiku, my cousin looked at me astonished. Mouth agape, eyes wide open and eyebrows raised, she looked at me stunned as I sliced onions to prep my scalp potion.
I knew explanations wouldn’t work. She goes by results. Always.
Yet, I proceeded to explain the nitty-gritty of why onion for hair care is nothing less of a Eureka recipe.
Laden with anti-bacterial properties that nip scalp infection in the bud, anti-oxidants which prevent premature hair graying and sulphur which arrests hair loss, onion for hair may be the next best thing since sliced bread!
The explanation lasted 5 mins. Her judgemental look lasted longer.
I realized that if anything could convince her, it’d be just results.
Then and there, I set on a mission – to prove to her that onion for hair care is what even she’d swear by.
On that note, let’s concoct your DIY onion for hair scalp potion and get you stunning locks!
Ingredients: Onion For Hair
- Onion (only 1)
- Water (3 tbsp.)
Procedure: Onion For Hair, Scalp Potion
Step 1 – De-skin and slice an onion. Toss into a mixer.
Step 2 – Add 3 tbsp. of water. Blend it for 30 seconds.
Step 3 – Strain the juice using a strainer. The juice you have extracted is what you need for your hair.
My 2 Cents
(A) How To Use Onion For Hair Scalp Potion
- Before indulging in a hot oil therapy which I always recommend as the first step in hair care, if you have excess hair fall, lustre-less hair (meaning no shine) or scalp itch, use this ‘Onion For Hair Scalp Potion’.
- Dunk a cotton ball in the juice.
- Apply it all over your scalp.
- It’s best if you keep it overnight (cover your pillow with a piece of cloth to avoid staining).
- If it is not possible to keep it overnight, 2 hours is fine.
- Go for a hot oil therapy the next morning. Use 2 tbsp. of VCO (Virgin Coconut Oil) (Buy HERE)
- After 1 hour, apply either of the following DIY Hair Packs (THIS suits excessively dry hair; THIS gels well with dandruff-prone oil while THIS triggers hair growth)
- Keep the Hair Pack for 3 hours.
- After 3 hours, shampoo using either Aroma Essentials Hair Cleanser or BON Organics (95% organic) shampoo. These 2 are the only brand of shampoos I use and recommend actively.
- Consult a trichologist if you are pregnant, have serious scalp disorders or are skeptical of onion before using this scalp potion.
- Do not let even a drop of this onion juice drip into your eyes. Your eyes may burn. If they do, wash off with cold water.
Do you think Chiku would now be convinced of the effectiveness of onion for hair care?
