Ways to Prepare Onion Juice for Hair Treatment
All you have to do is peel the onions, cut them in two halves, and put them in the juicer.
Start off by getting a blender and peeling the onions. Cut the two halves in half, and put them into the blender. Mix until you end up with the desired consistency. If necessary, add a little bit of water.
The procedure remains the same for the grated onions also. Just peel them off, grate them and they are good to go.
If you notice that your hairline is receding, that your hair is becoming grey, then take the previously-prepared onion and apply the juice on the impacted area. Massage the area gently for a few minutes. This will help stimulate the hair follicles so they can absorb the minerals and all the beneficial properties of the onion. Once done with the massage, let the onion juice sit on your scalp for 5-10 minutes, before washing it off with lots of warm water.
Note: If this treatment leads to an allergic reaction, immediately stop using it.
