Onions for hair growth?!? You BET! Onions aren't just fragrant little vegetables that you throw into your stirfry, but rather, a long held hair growth secret that needs to be shared with the world! Although onions for hair growth have actually been used for thousands of years, it's only recently made a comeback, but today we'll show you a DIFFERENT variation than in our previous article…a DIY onion hair oil!
So why is onion oil better than just onion juice for your hair? Well for starters, we're basically extracting ALL the goodies form the onion and making it into an oil, therefore making it much more concentrated. And more concentrated means better working, so you'll see faster, more effective results!
