Everyone is talking about applying Onion juice on scalp for combating hair loss. Lets check if this kitchen staple actually add strength to hairs or not.
Onions are rich in the strong sulphur containing compounds, which are the primary source of their strong smell. They also contain high levels of flavonoids, particularly Quercetin which is also an antioxidant. Onions are a good source of vitamins B6, C, biotin, K, folic acid, chromium, calcium, and fibre.
Onion juice has been extensively researched and most of the studies indicate that if onion juice is applied to the scalp, it helps in regrowth of hair. Yes ..very true, Onion juice is one possible treatment in curing hair problems.
One research was carried where onion juice was applied to scalp twice daily for 2 weeks time and growth was observed on the scalp. Almost 74% of participants had some hair growth after 4 weeks and at 6 weeks about 87% experienced hair growth.
Onion juice have anti bacterial properties which help fight scalp infection. Infected scalp is the main contributor for hair loss as it makes hair follicles weak.
The second biggest reason for onions to work in regrowth of hairs is the dietary sulphur present in onions. Sulphur is required in production of enzymes and proteins. Moreover sulphur increases the blood circulation to the scalp and stimulates hair growth.
Onions are rich in antioxidants which keeps free radicals away. Free radicals are harmful as they damage hair follicles and are one of the main reason of hair thinning and falling.
