Why go through all the hassles of multiple hair growth treatments when you can get all the benefits you seek from an all-natural onion shampoo?
Onions have long been a regular feature in our kitchens. But now, they have taken the hair care world by storm due to their high nutritional profile, which has been proven to stimulate hair growth.
Of course, our hair grows on its schedule, which can be pretty inconvenient at times. You might crave long, lustrous, and smooth hair, but slow growth and various hair problems, like split ends, hair fall, and breakage, might prevent your dream from becoming a reality. This is where onions come to the rescue, with their high Sulfur content, which stimulates hair growth.
Besides Sulfur, onions also contain antioxidants like quercetin, Vitamin C, folates-B9, potassium, and fibers called fructans that have anti-inflammatory properties. This makes onions a potent ingredient for dandruff, psoriasis, and other scalp conditions that hinder hair growth.
Mamaearth hair growth shampoo, enriched with onion, ensures thorough cleaning, detangling, and moisturizing for stronger, cleaner hair. You can also get bouncy hair like never before with Khadi Essentials’ red onion cleanser.
Here’s how using an onion shampoo can help you gain voluminous locks that are flaunt-worthy.
Encourage Collagen Synthesis
Our hair is made of a protein known as Keratin, which provides its luster. Keratin mainly consists of Sulfur, which gives our hair its strength and flexibility. However, when the sulfur content decreases in our hair, it becomes dry and brittle.
An onion shampoo’s high sulfur content is excellent for giving your hair roots the right nutrition for healthy growth. Collagen is a protein that promotes the development of healthy skin cells and hair. The sulfur in onions encourages collagen synthesis, which also improves hair growth.
What’s more, onions boost the levels of Catalase, an antioxidant enzyme that aids in cell development and repair. Catalase can also break down hydrogen peroxide, resulting in a more efficient hair development cycle and fuller hair growth.
Creates an Optimal Growth Environment
Dr. Engelman, a board-certified dermatology surgeon in New York, suggests using a product that promotes general scalp health and the health of hair cuticles and follicles while choosing growth-boosting shampoos. “The scalp plays a vital part in the growth and maintenance of strong, healthy hair,” she explains.
The antioxidant qualities of onions make them great for easing scalp irritation which decreases hair follicle performance. As a result, you can reduce dandruff and lower the risk of infection by reducing oxidative stress. Onions also can create better conditions for your hair to grow faster, longer and stronger by balancing your scalp’s pH levels.
This magical root vegetable also contains quercetin, an anti-inflammatory flavonoid. As a result, it can shield your hair against the damaging effects of pollution and other potentially harmful substances. Onion’s antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory qualities work together to cleanse your scalp and protect it. This is why it is an excellent natural treatment for dry scalp, dandruff, and even alopecia.
Replenish Nutrients and Moisture
In a 2018 study published in the Journal of Drug Delivery and Therapeutics, a shampoo was formulated using onion and other natural ingredients. The study revealed that this shampoo promotes hair growth by nourishing the hair follicles and moisturizing the tresses. In addition, the sulfur content in onions provides the necessary nutrients to revive the dormant hair follicles and stop hair fall.
Frizzy hair can also be tamed using an onion shampoo due to its natural conditioning abilities. Pro-tip: Make sure your hair care routine includes a conditioner made with the same ingredients as your shampoo. This can lead to shinier and smoother hair.
Nature’s Goodness for Strong Hair
Besides nourishing your hair with products that come with the goodness of onions, it is also essential to follow a nutritious diet, get enough sleep, and avoid stress to enjoy beautiful, long, thick hair.
