Onion Oil for Hair Growth

Onions may make you cry while chopping them in the kitchen, but onion oil extracted from these pungent bulbs can bring tears of joy for your hair. Onion oil is quickly becoming the new “it” ingredient for hair care due to its proven properties to boost hair growth, add shine, and prevent thinning.

 Organic onion oil, like the one offered by Bulk Superfoods, provides a natural and safe way to improve hair health. Keep reading to learn all about the impressive benefits of onion oil for your locks and how to use Bulk Superfoods’ Organic Onion Oil for optimal hair growth and thickness.

 What is Onion Oil?

Onion oil is extracted from the common onion (Allium cepa) plant, which originates in central Asia but is now grown globally. It’s made by pressing and steam-distilling the fleshy onion bulbs. 

 Onion oil has a long history of use for medicinal purposes and cosmetics. The oil contains a high concentration of sulphur compounds as well as quercetin, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron among other hair benefiting nutrients. When applied topically, these natural phytochemicals in onion oil provide nourishment to hair follicles and the scalp. The sulphur acts as an antibacterial and antioxidant to promote a healthy scalp, while the other nutrients stimulate circulation and strengthen the hair.

 Benefits of Onion Oil for Hair Growth & Health 

There are so many ways that onion oil can improve the look and feel of your hair. Here are some of the top benefits of using onion oil for your hair care regimen:

 Stimulates Hair Growth

One of the biggest benefits of onion oil is that it has been shown to significantly increase hair growth. Topically applying onion juice to the scalp can help treat baldness. The sulphur compounds have anti-microbial properties that eliminate infections and boost immunity. This helps create an optimal environment for hair regeneration.

 The antioxidants such as quercetin fight inflammation and free radical damage that can inhibit follicle growth. This combination of factors makes onion oil highly effective for growing thicker, fuller hair.

 Prevents Hair Loss

Hair loss can occur due to many factors, from genetics to stress or poor nutrition. Research has found that the phytochemicals and antioxidants in onion oil help prevent hair loss.

 Onion oil reduces breakage and shedding by providing nourishment to the hair follicles. It also improves blood circulation on the scalp, which allows hair to grow faster and thicker. The anti-bacterial properties keep the scalp healthy by fighting microbes and unclogging pores that can block follicle growth. So onion oil both reduces hair loss while stimulating regrowth.

 Adds Shine & Softness

Dull, brittle hair? Onion oil can help! The nourishing vitamins and fatty acids in onion oil smooth down the hair cuticle for serious shine.

 It also helps reverse dryness and damage by restoring moisture. Just a few drops of onion oil mixed with coconut or olive oil as a hair mask before shampooing can leave you with soft, silky hair.

 Prevents Premature Greying

Premature greying of hair is on the rise, affecting younger people even in their 20s. Some research indicates that onion oil may help prevent and potentially reverse this condition.

 The antioxidants are thought to minimize oxidative stress on hair follicles that leads to the lack of colour. Onion oil may be able to stop or slow the greying process so you can enjoy your natural colour for longer.

 Treats Dandruff & Itchy Scalp

Dandruff, flakiness, and itchiness can make your scalp feel irritated and hair look unclean. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory abilities of onion oil have been shown to reduce these annoying symptoms.

 Sulphur kills the fungus Malassezia that causes dandruff. And compounds like quercetin calm the scalp irritation and inflammation that makes you want to scratch. Just a few regular scalp massages with onion oil can get rid of dandruff and itchiness for good.

 Natural Protection from Environmental Damage

Heat styling, UV rays, chlorine, and pollution all take a toll on your hair’s health and beauty over time. Using onion oil can form a protective layer that shields hair strands from this environmental damage.

 The antioxidants neutralize free radicals from air pollution that can degrade hair proteins. And the fatty acids coat the cuticle to protect against heat and chemicals. Regular use of onion oil boosts hair resilience for less breakage and split ends.

 How to Use Bulk Superfoods Organic Onion Oil for Hair?

Bulk Superfoods provides 100% pure, organic onion oil that makes it simple to reap all these benefits for your hair. Here are some tips for using it:

 As a Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment

For an intensive onion oil hair mask:

  • Combine 6-8 drops of onion oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil, olive oil, or jojoba oil. Adjust amount as needed for your hair length.
  • Massage mixture into your scalp and thoroughly coat hair strands.
  • Cover hair and let sit for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  • Shampoo as normal.

Use weekly or bi-weekly for healthy, fast growing hair.

 With Other Herbal Oils

You can blend onion oil with other hair-stimulating herbal oils like rosemary, lavender, thyme, or ginger for an even more powerful growth formula. Infuse into your scalp before washing as a treatment.

 Daily Scalp Massages

Massaging onion oil directly into your scalp boosts circulation for faster growth. Focus on areas of thinning hair or alopecia spots. Do this daily or a few times a week.

 As a Hair Serum

After shampooing, rub a couple drops of onion oil between your palms and smooth over damp hair. Comb through evenly from roots to tips to hydrate, detangle, and boost shine.

 In a Homemade Shampoo

Add 10-15 drops of onion oil to unscented castile soap or DIY shampoo recipe. Lather up hair as normal while allowing the nutrients to soak in.
