The latest researches found that onions are very beneficial for our hair. They promote hair growth, strengthen the hair, recover the natural color and improve our scalp health.
Onion is rich in sulfur content which stimulates our circulation, reduces the inflammation and regenerates hair follicles. It also has antibacterial properties and helps us treat scalp infections.
Onion juice prevents thinning and breakage and also increase the strength of the hair.
The benefits of onions for our hair:
Onion is able to retrieve the color of your hair thanks to its high concentration of catalase. It is an enzyme that can treat graying and thinning hair.
A resent study at the University of Bradford, in the UK found that the gray hairs are caused by the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicles. This substance causes oxidative stress that causes gray hair.
Catalase can catalyze the decomposition reaction of hydrogen peroxide and convert it into water and oxygen. So, onion juice can reverse gray hair and restore the natural color of our hair and stop the hair loss.
