Onions are the new staple for hair care. Onions as a hair care ingredient has been used since ancient times in the world of beauty. Onion and its products like onion shampoo and onion oil are considered as some of the best products for hair growth. But does onion only aid in hair growth? The answer is no. It does much more, and you are just about to discover what onion shampoo can do for your hair.
1 . Strengthens your hair roots
Onions are a rich source of vitamin A, biotin, sulphur, zinc, iron, protein, and the list can go on. Healthy hair demands nutrition to stay lustrous, soft, and voluminous, and an onion shampoo will provide that to your hair. It will treat your hair from the roots, nourish it from within, and strengthen your follicles.
2 . Faster hair growth
Hair growth is measured by the length of your hair, its quality, and the ability of your follicles to produce hair. Just like plants require nutrients to grow, so does your hair. If your roots are weak, you will experience more hair fall, and slowly this will turn into hair fall, resulting in baldness. Using an onion shampoo is just like killing two birds with the same stone. It will renew your hair follicles and help to prevent hair fall.
3 . Prevents grey hair
Most people associate healthy hair with shiny, glossy hair and a lack of grey hair. But what causes grey hair? Your hair gets its colour from melanin, and vitamins A, C, and B12 are vital for producing melanin in your hair. Melanin can also be viewed as the pigment cell, and so when you grow older, these pigment cells in the hair follicle decrease. See a connection now?
Onions also contain catalase, a pigment that helps in preventing grey hair and sometimes even reverse it. The deficiency of catalase leads to a build of hydrogen peroxide, which blocks pigment production, eventually leading to greying of hair.
