One of the many industries affected were hair salons

Don’t let the pandemic stop you from being beautiful.

For those who worry about the procedure, stop, because it is so easy to prepare.

It’s as easy as one – two – three!

First, of course, just peel the onion and the potato. Slice and dice them, then use a blender (make sure to add water) to bring them into a juice-like mixture.

Once you are done, put the mixture into a kitchen strainer and press it to get all of the juice and filter out the pulp.

You can also add egg to it for a stickier mixture.

It just depends on how you want the final mixture to be. It’s best to put the mixture in a spray bottle to distribute an even application on your hair.

Also, make sure that it reaches your scalp because it’s where all the beauty starts – at the roots.

But isn’t onion too smelly?

Thankfully, plenty of people have posted their own remedies in getting rid of the onion’s smell. More than its strong scent, onion holds a lot of benefits for hair.

“When added to the hair and scalp, onion juice can provide extra sulfur to support strong and thick hair, thus preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth.

The sulfur from onions may also help promote collagen production. Collagen in turn helps the production of healthy skin cells and hair growth.”

The results might differ and it depends on many factors.

Onions and potatoes are organic and raw materials so do not compare the results with what you get from a high-rating hair salon. Nevertheless, this method is way cheaper and it’s almost safe to say that it’s safer.

As it turns out, potatoes offer many benefits as well.

Potatoes are a root crop and, as we all know, root crops are packed with vitamins and minerals. Potatoes are also a good source of carbohydrates and an alternative for those who are used to eating rice.

But aside from the nutritional benefits of potatoes, they pack many other benefits too:

“Potato juice also helps in making the growth of hair follicles better. It prevents hair thinning and the starch present in the vegetable ensures nourishment of follicles. The compounds present in potatoes bind with oxygen to strengthen the hair strands, thus preventing hair fall.”

A powerful duo.

Combing potatoes with onions is a hair treatment that’s worth your while at home.

It can bring unimaginable results without you spending much.

You may also add honey to your mixture or use aloe vera extracts as an alternative if you can’t get rid of the onion’s smell.
