Grow your beard in just one week with Onions

How onion works for beard growth

Most people would be skeptical about how onion can affect beard growth, and whether it is effective or not at all. According to scientific studies, consuming onions on a regular basis and applying onion juice on the beard area can be helpful in promoting hair growth in the area. It also helps you to fight yeast and fungal infections in the area, and ward off dandruff as well. Onion juice is also proven to be helpful in preventing premature graying of your beard hair. Onions are rich in sulfur, which can improve blood circulation when applied. It stimulates hair growth from the follicles, strengthens hair and prevents breakage and thinning of the hair. Applying onion juice on the beard on a regular basis can actually give it improved volume and texture.

How to use onions for beard growth

Here are a few simple methods that you can try:

  • Make a mixture of honey and onion juice. Mix 1 tbsp honey and ¼ cup onion juice, and consume it orally everyday. You may also apply this mixture on your beard and massage for 15 minutes everyday
  • Make a mixture of rum and onion juice. If you don’t like the smell of onion juice, you can add some rum to it to make it a better smelling and more effective concoction. Take one medium sized, finely chopped onion and soak it in a glass full of rum for around 12 hours. Then strain the mixture and remove any onion pieces from it. Massage your beard area with this mixture and then rinse. You can also use it as a rinse after washing your beard.
  • Make a hair rinse with onions. Add 5 chopped onions in a single liter of water, and let it boil for around 15 minutes. Let the mixture cool down and then strain it to remove the onion pieces. Wash your face and your beard and use this boiled water with onion to rinse it. If you can tolerate the smell, don’t wash your beard with water after that. You can wash your beard the next day, so that the mixture can work on your beard for an entire period of 24 hours.
