Benefits: 

Onion:

As odd as putting onions in your hair sounds, it works wonders. Onion juice is rich in its sulfur content and ends up making hair think and stronger. This prevents hair loss and in turn promote hair growth. Its antibacterial nature also deals with dandruff and helps get rid of all the bacterial overgrowth on the scalp. In some cases, it also reverses premature greying of hair. 

Coconut oil:

Coconut oil soothes and moisturises the scalp to get rid of any dry and flakey spots that could create dandruff. It also promotes hair growth by getting deep into the hair follicles. It moisturises the hair and gives it a shiny lustre. 

Pro tip: In some cases of dandruff, oils of any types can worsen the condition if not washed properly. It is important that you get rid of all the excess oily fat stuck to your hair in the shower. 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that promotes hair growth. Along with the coconut oil, it seeps deep into the hair follicles and nourishes it from within. It also regulates the moisture and oil production on the scalp thus preventing dandruff. 

DISCLAIMER: Please do a patch test before applying any ingredients to your scalp.
