Onions are not just a vegetable, they are a lot more. They are high in sulfur content and have been used since ages for increasing hair growth and reversing the occurrence of grey hair. Onion juice is very nourishing and increases circulation to the hair follicles. The fact that they are rich in sulfur helps in improving collagen production.

When onion juice is regularly massaged or applied on the scalp, it can thicken your hair strand and reduces problems that lead to hair loss and thinking.
In fact you can do away with yeast and fungal infections, scalp acne, and dandruff related problems. You must be wondering whether it’s good for all kinds of scalp. Here’s the best news, onion juice suits both dry and oily scalp. Isn’t that amazing?
How to make onion juice?
There are several ways of making onion juice. Although you can buy onion juices from supermarkets, it’s best to opt for freshly prepared onion juice at home. This is because the ones you get at stores can be as old as a few months. Ideally you should prepare the onion juice in small amounts so that you don’t have to store it for longer periods.
Take an onion, peel it and put half of it in the juicer. Using a juicer is definitely the easiest and the fastest way of extracting juice out of your onions.
Food processor or blender
Peel an onion and cut it into four equal sections. Put those pieces into your food processor or blender and start blending. Once the pieces are properly blended, strain the mixture and extract the juice out of it.
Take a medium sized onion and cut it into two equal halves after peeling it. Grate both the pieces using the grater and strain the mixture out of it to get the juice.
How to use it?
Take the juice that you prepared, apply it on your scalp and gently massage it all over. Make sure your concentration is more on the hair roots. Keep it at least for an hour and then rinse it off with water. Use a mild shampoo later as well. For best results and benefits, do this every alternate day.
