Onions, yes onions.
If you were like me who never knew onions had some nutritional values, then you must be as shocked as I was to find out what I did about these vegetables. I have included some of the recipes I tried on my hair below and proved effective but have not had the chance to try them all yet.
Onion has a high concentration of sulfur that helps with numerous hair conditions that cause hair to fall out. But it is necessary to understand the structure of your hair and the causes your hair fall in order to understand why onion is an effective remedy.
Hair is made up of proteins, out of which keratin gives hair its strength. This is because of the abundance of sulfur present in it. It is the chemical bonds that sulfur forms that determine the texture of your hair, as well as its health. In fact, hair loss has been linked to the absence of high sulfur proteins. Methylsulfonylmethane is a highly absorbable source of sulfur, which is found in onions. It helps with the formation of keratin in hair, which results in hair growth.
Recent research has shown that the topical application of onion juice can help with alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease where the body attacks the hair follicles and these result in spot baldness. Onion juice helps with the re-growth of hair in the spots where the hair has fallen out.
