Make Your Hair Shine Like a Diamond

Updated on November 18, 2017

Believe it or not, it’s actually natural to lose your hair, most people lose between 50-100 hairs each day. However, thinning of the hair tends to cause a lot of insecurity and can make your self-esteem go down. Especially when it comes to women.

Healthy hair - more self confidence

Almost every woman in the world wants to keep her hair long, healthy and shiny. Even men admit that one of the first things that they notice on a woman is her hair. There have been many scientific studies performed on hair loss and growth, and the natural remedies that are beneficial to both. We can admit that there are tons of ads that promote their products for hair. Moreover, they claim that they show unprecedented results. What they actually do is damage your scalp and the skin beneath the hair and cause allergies.

One of the most effective natural remedies - Onion

If we want to avoid that and solve our problem at the same time all we need is, believe it or not, onion. Juice extracted from the onion is a powerful natural remedy that promotes hair growth and makes our hair look healthy and shiny.

Onions, red ones and shallots, contain great amount of sulfur which boosts the formation of collagen tissues that promotes hair growth. Collagen serves not just for our face to look healthy and beautiful, but hair also. Onion has both antiseptic and antibacterial properties. There are times when the scalp becomes infected through bacteria, for example touching our hair with hands that are nor properly washed. This can lead to hair loss quickly, but can be treated without the use of antibiotics.

Practical advice - How to make an onion tonic

Making an onion tonic is quite simple. You can mix the onion extract with olive or almond oil, or even honey. What is important also is to stick in with one mixture during the next few months. It needs to be done at least three times a week for two months minimum to see the results. If you keep up with this routine you will surely achieve the goal.

But that's not all. Our daily diet has a significant effect on the quality of our hair. So eat onions. Simply eating more onions and adding them to your diet will make you notice a difference in the health of your hair. It doesn’t work quite like the other methods, but in time you will see how much it does help your hair. The onion juice can be also used in preventing grey hair. You can apply it on your scalp to avoid grey hair. Onion juice really does wonders. So don't forget to choose the best and you'll get the best.

Make an onion shampoo

  1. Take 2 or 3 onions and put it in the juice extractor or a blender.
  2. You can use it mixed with aloe vera, olive oil, and honey.
  3. Apply this on your scalp and leave it on for 30 minutes. After finishing this, wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Baby shampoos are the best for this.
  4. One extra tip: If you can stand the smell, leave it even longer. And don't worry, the smell will be washed out afterwards.

      One small study published in the Journal of Dermatology indicated that applying onion juice to the scalp might help hair regrow in some people. The study involved participants who had alopecia, believe it or not:)) Thanks for your comment, hope that my advice will help you.

      P.S. Here is the link of that study, maybe you will find it useful: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1346-...

      My diet does include onions. I had never thought about it as a hair elixir, though. I'll also pass the information to my son-in-law, who has been fighting alopecia.

      Thank you for sharing this tip. I know olive oil makes the hair shine.

      Blessings!
