Mix ? cup of onion juice and one tsp of honey and directly apply on the scalp and leave it for about 30 mins and rinse off with mild shampoo, else you can take this mixture orally as well, but it is more effective when applied directly to the scalp. Regular usage will give you quick results.
- Coconut Oil and Small Onions:
You can also make oil and apply. Firstly cut the small onions into small chops. Take a kadai or deep pan, pour in the virgin coconut oil and heat it, once it is heated put in the small onions and curry leaves (optional). Allow it to boil nicely and switch the gas off. Allow the mixture to cool down and strain and bottle the oil. Apply the oil on your scalp and leave for an hour or two and rinse with mild shampoo. This helps to improve the graying of hair too.
