Who doesn’t want to have long, soft, healthy, and dandruff-free hair? We all have our struggles. In the tropical weather that we have, it is sometimes quite tricky to maintain a healthy scalp and hair, especially when it gets so humid and worse, hot. Our hair gets dry, freezy, brittle, and don’t forget the extra split-ends + dandruff — hair-attack!
Good thing we’re not going to give up on this journey to a healthy hair. (We’re in this together sis!) I’m sharing with you a hair mask which could be the answer to your prayers. It’s effortless too. All you need is to get some ALOE VERA and ONION. It’s not entirely new but well; it’s truly better late than never!
This combo is a perfect mixture for longer and thicker hair. Guess what? Not just that! It gives us a healthier scalp which means we get to have stronger strands and dandruff-free hair! So what’s with aloe vera and onion?
The use of this plant is endless. The list goes on and on and on. One thing is for sure: it’s good for our hair! Its gel is very cooling and soothing when applied to the skin. The benefits extend to our strands.
Studies show that sulfur from onions promotes collagen production. Thus, its juice will help provide stronger and thicker hair. This hack minimizes hair breakage and thinning and helps restore lost nutrients to your scalp.

DIY ALOE VERA AND ONION JUICE
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 2 pieces of diced onions
- 5 tablespoons of aloe vera gel
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil (optional)
- Use a juicer, blender, or food processor to extract the onion juice.
- Filter the onion juice with a strainer or sieve then take the juice out.
- Mix aloe vera gel/juice, onion juice, and olive oil. You can put it in an empty and clean spray bottle for more comfortable use.
HOW TO APPLY
- Apply the mixture to all of your hair – from the roots to the tips.
- Leave it in for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it out with warm water.
- You can repeat this remedy/mask for 2-3 times a week for better results.
Also, note that the onion can give off a strong smell. If you’re bothered by that, you can use some of your essential oils to fight the odor. Additionally, do some patch tests to be sure if you have allergic reactions to the ingredients (your safety is the most important to us). Nonetheless, this is a straightforward DIY hair mask for girls who want to go all natural!
