      I've been wanting to try a hot oil treatment but with argan oil! I'm using one called Pro Naturals moroccan argan oil that I got online a while ago from Beyas and it's been wonderful on my once very dry and damaged hair :) I love argan oil, it's certainly the best for hair!

      Thank you for your comment. Onion really works. I have tried it with good results. Only drawback is the onion smell which goes away later. Come back after using and let me know.

      I don't know what is in the onion, but I've got to give that one a try. If I see any hair growth, I'll try to stop back and let you know.

      Tonu1973, Thank you for your comment. Vitamins are very important to prevent hair loss and herbs can actually regrow hair. Only you have to have some patience for two to six months to see the results.
