Hair loss isn’t the most pleasant experience a person can go through. Lifeless hair that lack volume - and so many of them sacrificed to your hair brush… Ugh.

Losing up to 100 strands of hair per day is normal, but what to do when there’s more? Excessive hair loss is most likely a pointer to some larger health problems like too much stress, diet problems, or hormone imbalance. So seeing a doctor might be the right thing to do.

In this article, however, we will talk about helping your hair get their life back using… onions.

When combined with other ingredients, the sulphuric compounds and vitamons onions are rich in are perfect for prompting growth of healthy hair.

Here’s our Top-5 recipes of 100% natural onion hair treatment.

#1. Onion plus garlic

Onion and garlic juices make your hair roots stronger, and boost regeneration of the skin on your head.

What you need is four onions (raw, obviously), six garlic cloves, and half a glass of water.

What you do is blend the onions and garlic (peel them first) with the water. Sieve the liquid so you don’t have lumps. Part your hair in several sections and rub in the juice into your scalp. Leave it for half and hour, then rinse with shampoo. Do this minimum three times per week.

#2. Onion plus oil

This is a recipe for those with a dry, flaky scalp (plus hair loss).

What you need is two onions, two tablespoons of coconut oil, and a tablespoon of olive oil. Oh, and a shower cap to cover your hair.

What you do is blend peeled onions with the oils until you have a thick paste. Part your hair in several sections and rub the paste into the roots of your hair. Leave the mixture to do its magic under the shower cap for about 30-40 minutes. Rinse. Repeat two times per week.

#3. Onion plus honey

Especially effective for people whose hair tend to get greasy, since the two components help regulate oil production in hair. The end results is hair that looks clean and shiny!

What you need is two onions and three tablespoons of bee honey. And another shower cap.

What you do is mixed finely chopped onions with honey. When you see you have the consistency of a paste, rub the paste into your scalp and let sit under the shower cap for about 40 minutes. Rinse. Repeat twice or thrice per week.

#4. Onion plus your shampoo

It wouldn’t hurt to add some onions to your shampoo, too! Try this combo and tell us if you’ve noticed a difference.

What you need is one onion and your bottle of shampoo.

What you do is finely chop the onion, put the pieces into the bottle and leave for a week. Then, use the shampoo to wash your hair as per usual, but don’t rinse straight away, let sit for 20 minutes.

Repeat two times per week.

#5. Onion plus rum

If you have an onion and some run at home, you can turn them into a rather disgusting drink-snack combo. But better use them to strengthen the roots of your head and get rid of dead skin cells.

What you need is two onions and a glass of rum (200ml).

What you do is put your chopped onions into your rum and leave the glass for a night in a dry and dark place. Sieve the mixture the next day and massage it into the scalp. Leave it for 20 minutes, rinse. Repeat a couple of times per week.
