Diamonds are a girl’s best friend but her favourite accessory is her hair. Healthy and shiny locks are what everyone wishes for. They undeniably bring out the best in every woman, making her feel confident and radiant. There are some of us who have let go of our tresses and damage them, thanks to the countless blow-drys and use of curling irons and straighteners. Oiling one’s hair is recommended at least once or twice a week in order to promote and nourish growth. While oil comes in a variety of types ranging from coconut to castor and almond, the one that is extremely underrated is onion oil. And yes, while it does smell a tad bit, it produces extraordinary results that make it worth trying! Here are the benefits of onion oil:
1.Optimizes hair growth and reduce baldness
Onion juice helps in improving the growth cycle due to the presence of many antioxidants in it, which particularly work towards boosting the functioning of certain enzymes that preventing hair fall. Our name for it is magic oil! Use it on a regular basis for two months and you will notice the results yourself. Not only will hair fall decrease drastically but you will also soon begin to spot tiny new hair follicles. Here’s to thicker and longer hair!
2.Prevents breakage and split ends
Onion oil is rich in sulfur and multiple vitamins including A, C and E. These help to protect the hair from breakage, split ends and thinning. The sulfur also maintains the regular pH of the hair, preventing premature greying.
3. Nourishes the scalp
Onion oil acts like a conditioner for the hair. If you are using it for solely this purpose, the best thing to do is to apply it on the scalp as well as the ends, an hour before stepping into the shower. The oil nourishes the scalp and improves the blood circulation, leading to thicker and stronger hair growth.
4. Prevents dandruff and fights frizz
Regular use of onion oil will not only foster hair regrowth but it will also prevent any bacterial infections or dandruff. It also helps to combat excessive dryness in winter season and controls frizz in hot summer weather.
