We’re just going to say it - onions are haircare saviours. And we’re almost sure you have your reservations about the vegetable - particularly because you might not love the idea of massaging it into your scalp. But we’re making a case for onions, and trust us when we say we were bombarded by a bewildering number of hair care benefits almost immediately.
Oh, do you know where you can redeem each of these benefits? In a recyclable bottle loaded with the richness of steam-distilled onion-bulb oil, organic coconut oil, and pure blackseed oil, and infused with the scent of hand-picked patchouli sourced from Indonesia. Yes, we’re talking about the Love Beauty & Planet Onion Blackseed & Patchouli Hair Fall Control Sulfate Free Shampoo. Here are 5 reasons why you must invest in the shampoo ASAP - especially if you’re looking to reduce breakage, and boost the growth of your hair!
01. Reduces breakage
Onion contains sulfur, and sulfur plays an important role in the regeneration of our follicles. It reduces breakage, and prevents our hair from thinning. Since it supports thick and strong hair, it boosts growth, and minimises loss of hair. Sulfur promotes the production of collagen as well. This enables the growth of healthy hair. Onions enhance the circulation of blood in our scalp too, and this boosts growth.
02. Repels infections
Since onion has anti-bacterial as well as antifungal properties, it prevents infections from damaging the scalp. Studies have shown that the vegetable has the ability to treat conditions like dandruff and lice too. Remember that an infected scalp can lead to hair loss.
03. Soothes itchiness
Onions are packed with anti-inflammatory properties. This characteristic enables it to calm an itchy, inflamed, and dry scalp, and strengthen the follicles.
04. Prevents premature greying
Onions are loaded with antioxidants too. These antioxidants fight free radicals - that destroy follicles, and lead to thinning of hair - and protect the hair from environmental damage. They might slow down greying, and prevent premature greying as well.
05. Adds shine to tresses
Over a period of time, onions can add a natural shine to your hair, and breathe life into your limp, lifeless tresses. Why invest in chemical treatments when something as natural as a vegetable can restore your hair’s luster?
