- 1-2 medium-sized onions
- Prepare the Onion Juice:
- Peel and chop the onions into small pieces.
- Use a blender or a food processor to blend the onions into a fine paste.
- You can also extract the juice by grating the onions and then squeezing out the juice through a muslin cloth or strainer.
- Apply the Onion Juice:
- Part your hair to expose the scalp.
- Using a cotton ball or your fingertips, apply the onion juice directly to your scalp.
- Gently massage the scalp with the juice for a few minutes to ensure even distribution.
- Leave It On:
- Allow the onion juice to sit on your scalp for about 15-30 minutes. You may experience a mild tingling sensation, which is normal.
- Rinse and Cleanse:
- After the suggested time, rinse your hair and scalp thoroughly with a mild shampoo.
- You can follow up with a conditioner to help reduce the onion smell.
- It’s important to thoroughly rinse to ensure there’s no onion juice residue left on your scalp.
- You can repeat this process 1-2 times a week.
- Consistency is key, but be cautious not to overuse onion juice as it may cause scalp irritation for some individuals.
- Onion juice has a strong smell that may linger on your hair even after rinsing. If the smell bothers you, you can try adding a few drops of essential oil to the onion juice or using a scented conditioner after rinsing.
Remember, individual results may vary, and it’s important to use onion juice as part of a comprehensive hair care routine. If you experience any adverse reactions or persistent issues, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional or dermatologist. Additionally, if your hair loss is severe or persistent, it’s advisable to seek professional guidance for appropriate treatment options.
