Alternative method for using onion for hair growth
If you are scared of irritation and tears in eyes due to grating of onions while taking out its juice, you can use onions in another way. Here’s what you need to do:
- Chop 4-5 onions.

2. Potato Juice- yet another vegetable that helps your hair grow
No, we are not in a vegetable juice shop nor are we cooking food in your kitchen but these vegetables can really do miracles when it comes to hair growth. Same as with onions, you can also use potatoes to grow your hair. In fact, potato juice can even cure thinning of hair due to ‘alopecia.’ Potatoes are rich in certain vitamins like vitamins C, B and A. Your hair gets brittle and dry,when your body lacks these vitamins. So, you must have those foods that are rich in these vitamins. Using potato juice on hair directly is beneficial also. Take 3-4 potatoes, grate them and squeeze out the juice from it. Massage your scalp with this juice for at least 15 minutes. Rinse it off with water. You can use this potato hair mask, instead of using just the potato juice, if your hair is very dry.
