Onion (Allium cepa) retains healing qualities that include their antibacterial, cleansing, stimulating, and nourishing powers. Onions contain a number of important minerals and vitamins, such as vitamins C and B6, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and germanium.
As black women, we all should get into the habit of using natural home remedies not just for regrowing hair, but also for keeping in good health. A lot of you may think there is no way to regrow your hair if you have Alopecia, but that is not necessarily so. On Real Long Hair, on our previous article about using garlic for hair regrowth, we informed you about a man who had been to three doctors and there was nothing they could do. When he decided to give garlic a try, he began regrowing his hair back within five days. Now, we do not guarantee it, but this is how powerful the garlic/onion family is, it works in a lot of cases where it looked like there was no hope. Also, as we informed you on Real Long Hair blog, one of our journalists had suffered Alopecia at the temples of her hair, but when she started using garlic about a month ago, she began to see results. Get this, she lost her hair at the temples for almost 15 years. Again, we do not guarantee it, but it worked for her and others.
When using the onion treatment, apply freshly-squeezed, raw onion juice directly onto the scalp, massage deep into the scalp and hair roots. Left on the scalp for about half-an-hour to two hours before doing your co-wash (just using conditioner). Remember to cover your hair with a plastic cap as we told you in our previous article using garlic. Remember, if you shampoo your hair too often, you can strip the natural oils out, so we suggest just washing your hair about once or twice a month and using conditioner the rest of the time. You can do these treatments between 1 to 3 times a week, whatever you are comfortable with. In the majority of cases, regular onion treatments will result in dramatic improvement of hair thickness within so many months, it all depends on an individual experience. Since onion juice restores hair follicles and improves scalp circulation, it will make your hair very strong, eventually.
