Chop the onion and add it to a blender jar along with your favorite hair oil, I used black castor oil, you can use any other hair oil of your choice. If you don’t like to use oils on your hair then you can use aloe vera gel. Blend into a smooth paste. Pour the paste into a jar and refrigerate it for a week. If you don’t like the onion smell then add in few drops of essential oil to it or lemon juice to cut down the smell of onions.
To use – Section off your hair and apply the mask on the scalp. Apply it all over your scalp and let it sit for 30 mins. If you have extremely thick hair or your paste is not very smooth then the onion bits can be stuck in your hair but don’t worry once your hair dries just brush your hair and it will fall off easily. Wash it off with a mild shampoo ( that is free of SLS and parabens or make your own shampoo at home using natural ingredients if you want healthy hair ) and rinse your hair off with vinegar hair rinse to get rid of the onion smell – GREEN TEA APPLE CIDER VINEGAR HAIR RINSE
