Onion Juice, The Miracle You Never Knew You Needed For Your Hair!

Onions are not only good for your health, but they work wonders for your hair health as well. Onions are rich in sulfur, and hence, are one of the best home remedies for hair thinning, hair loss, and dandruff. The sulfur content in onions improves blood circulation, stimulates hair follicles, and promotes hair re-growth. It also contains the enzyme catalase, which is an antioxidant that can prevent premature greying.
