How does Onions and Garlic Grow Hair?

Many of us adore the flavor of garlic and onions in our foods, but did you also know that these two natural ingredients are a powerful mixture for hair growth?

The oils from onion and garlic contain important nutrients that may be beneficial to hair growth that include sulfur which is said to aid in collagen production, vitamins B-6 and C which are essential for healthy hair. Since each of the two ingredients can give a variety of benefits, here are few positive benefits to ponder on.

Benefits of Onion

  • Onions contain dietary sulfur. Sulfur is one of the most common minerals in the body. It is needed for adequate production of enzymes and proteins. Sulfur is also found in keratin, which is one of the components of hair. The sulfur in onion juice may provide the hair with the nourishment it needs to grow.
  • Onions have anti-bacterial properties, which may help fight scalp infections. In some cases, a scalp infection can contribute to thinning or loss of the hair.
  • Onions contain antioxidants, such as flavonoids. Antioxidants are believed to protect the body from free radicals. Free radicals are thought to contribute to the aging process. For instance, free radicals may destroy the hair follicles and lead to thinning and loss of the hair. Canceling out or decreasing free radicals may reduce damage to the hair follicles.

Benefits of Garlic

  • Garlic has anti-microbial properties that help kill germs and bacteria, which are responsible for causing damage to the scalp, further preventing hair growth.
  • Raw garlic is enriched with vitamin C which is great for promoting hair-health. It also enhances collagen production that helps stimulate hair growth.
  • The presence of selenium content in garlic helps improve blood circulation for maximum nourishment.
  • It also helps cleanse hair follicles, reinforces them, and prevents clogging, further restrict the loss of hair.
  • Garlic helps calm an intensified scalp and treats issues like dandruff.

 How does it work?

  1. Blend and strain 2 onions and 4-5 garlic cloves and extract the juice.
  2. Apply on hair and massage the scalp.
  3. Leave the mixture on for 10 minutes and wash hair with shampoo as usual.

Note: Feel free to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to tone down the smell of an onion and garlic like Lavender, Peppermint, or Rosemary.
