There might be a million products out there that promise to restore your locks to their former glory, but do they really live up to their claims?

If you are seeking a surefire way to achieve hair growth, there is one ingredient that has been unconsidered and overlooked – the humble onion.

Inexpensive and readily available, onions can be the end to all of your hair woes. To know the why and how, read on!

Why Is Onion Effective In Facilitating Hair Growth?

Onion has a high concentration of sulfur (not sulfate which is the acid of sulfur) that helps with numerous hair conditions that cause hair to fall out.

Hair is made up of proteins, out of which keratin gives hair its strength. This is because of the abundance of sulfur present in it. It is the chemical bonds that sulfur forms that determine the texture of your hair, as well as its health. In fact, hair loss has been linked to the absence of high sulfur proteins. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a highly absorbable source of sulfur, which is found in onions. It helps with the formation of keratin in hair, which results in hair growth.

Recent research has shown that the topical application of onion juice can help with alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease where the body attacks the hair follicles and these result in spot baldness.

Onion juice helps with the re-growth of hair in the spots where the hair has fallen out.
