Benefits of Onion Oil

As a mother of two, I was in my happy bubble with my bubbles, but one thing that I was most concerned about my self was losing my hair. Post-delivery I had a tremendous amount of hair fall. I tried out different oils, shampoos, and other home remedies. But nothing seemed to work!! One of my friends suggested and told the Benefits of Onion oil for hair.

The first brand of Onion oil that I used was The Luxuzra Sciences Organic Onion oil. This was sent to me as a Bloggers Mail. Since it was my first, I was all excited to use it. Here is my honest review as on my Instagram @Momlifeandlifestyle.
So I review this Onion oil on my @Momlifeandlifestyle after a month’s use and I did find a tremendous change in my hair structure. Before my hair was very dry and damaged with a lot of hair fall issues post-pregnancy. Guys, I tell you these post-pregnancy hair falls are serious…
I thank @stylecrazebeauty for sending me such an amazing box specially curated for me and sending me products to target my problematic issues. This particular oil, I was very excited to use. I took my time to review this as I was curious.
And here I am to give you my honest opinion about The Luxuzra Organic Onion Oil. Usually, the onion oil promotes hair growth and stops hair fall. But after using this I also found my dandruff problem to reduce. This amazing oil has a blend of 14 natural essential oils which is even more exciting.
Onion oil, Argan oil, Hibiscus oil, Bhringraj oil, Sesame oil, Jojoba oil, Olive oil, Sweet Almond oil, Coconut oil, Castor oil, Amla, Neem oil, Tea Tree oil ana Cedarwood oil.
I am in love with this amazing product. Highly recommend this for dry and damaged hair.

Usage of Onion oil for Hair growth:

  • Peel and cut Onion and make it a paste, strain it with a cloth to make it just juice (which would be easy to remove from hair) apply that juice to hair from scalp till roots. Wash it off after 1 hour.
  • Peel and cut Onions add them to water and bring it to boil, a strain that water and let it cool down, then wash hair with that Onion infused water.
  • Take the Onion oil and dilute it with Olive oil and apply it to your hair and wash it off after half an hour or an hour.
  • Peel and cut Onion and make it a paste, strain it with a cloth to make it just juice (which would be easy to remove from hair) and add fresh Aloe Vera gel and mix, apply that juice to hair from scalp till roots. Wash it off after 1 hour.

Hope you find this helpful. The above tips were really helpful for me to regain lost hair due to post-pregnancy issues.
