Home remedies for Hair Growth

You are using the onion in the food and it makes it tasty, but have you tried it for the hair? Onion juice can help the production of collagen tissues thanks to the sulfur in the onion. These specific collagen tissues assist in the hair growth. The only things you need are red onions.
- 2-4 onions

There is an alternative method for using the onion for hair growth.
You can use the onions in the other way if you are not keen on tears caused from grating the onions while taking its juice. Here is how to use them:

2. Potato Juice – another vegetable that helps the hair
We use potato as a vegetable in the food but we need to use it in the help of hair growth. Together with onions we can use the potatoes to grow our hair. If having problem like alopecia the potato juice can help cure the thinning of the hair. Potatoes have vitamins like vitamin A, B and C. When the body starts missing some of these vitamins then that starts to reflect on the hair getting it dry and brittle. So, if you use the potato juice directly on the hair your hair will be grateful. Grate 3-4 potatoes and squeeze the juice out from it. Massage your scalp with this juice for 15 minutes. Rinse it off with water. You can even use potato hair mask instead of the potato juice.
