Why you desperately NEED onion seed oil & onion extract in your hair care regime if you suffer from hair fall:
We all know onions as an indispensable vegetable that brings tears to eyes when chopped raw. But do you know that onions are a great hair care solution too? Ayurveda, the traditional Indian healthcare system advocates onion juice application for multiple hair woes – hair fall, dandruff, flakes, frizz, dryness, pre-mature greying, and thinning.
Onions have trace amounts of dietary sulfur, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folate, and key minerals like iron, magnesium, and potassium, all of which provide nourishment to your hair and scalp. Onions are also rich in phytochemicals like allium, allyl disulfide, and quercetin that help shield from the free radical onslaught, boost blood flow and improve hair health. Onions also have fibers called fructans that support scalp health. Additionally, they are also rich in antibacterial and antiseptic properties that help shield them from scalp infections.
Sulfur is a key beneficial element for hair as it is found in amino acids that are used in making keratin, the protein that makes almost 96% of a hair strand. Similarly, sulfur also helps promote collagen synthesis, another key protein essential for scalp and hair health.
