Benefits of onion juice for hair

If you’re a fan of Huda Kattan, you’d now her Insta handle is a treasure trove of whacky beauty trends like the video she posted of beauty blogger Farah Dhukai rubbing raw onions all over her eyebrows to make them grow faster and thicker. Why you wonder. This is what Huda writes, “Onion juice has sulphur which speeds up the growth of hair and makes it thicker.” So, the question, does the sulphur in onions really help with hair growth and thickness? Hair transplant specialist Dr Dhimant Goleria says the sulphur in onions can boost hair growth, but not on brows specifically. He says sulphur is an important component for healthy hair because it’s an anti-inflammatory. In fact, a 2002 Journal of Dermatology article tested the efficacy of onion juice on alopecia areata (bald patches on the scalp) in a group of women.

Add to that the fact that onions are also a rich source of vitamins A, C and E and B-Complex, and boost blood circulation to rejuvenate skin and prevent oxidative damage. Onions also contain Quercetin, a powerful antioxidant that has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. But before you get out your gloves and goggles out and start peeling, check out these onion juice infused hair potions that will have you in raptures.
