How To Use It
The easiest, most potent, way to incorporate onion juice into your regimen is to use it in its purest form.
Obtain the juice by taking an onion and using a juicer, blender, or food processor to extract the juice. Make sure it’s free of any chunks or bits of onion. You can remove them by using a strainer or cheesecloth.
Next, you will want to massage the juice into your scalp and leave in for about 15 minutes before shampooing.
Because the smell of onion is not so pleasant, another way to use this juice is to mix a little into your shampoo on wash day. I wouldn’t recommend adding it directly to your shampoo bottle as it could spoil quickly.
Others have shared great benefits of mixing it with a tablespoon of honey for an added bonus of moisture and shine-boosting properties.
