Default Forget Sulfur 8...Just Rub an Onion on Your Head!

Crazy, but seemingly true. I suffer from an extremely itchy scalp. For those of you in the know about this condition, you're willing to try just about anything once to get relief. I recently read that onions, like garlic, contain large amounts of sulfur, and that some people apply onions and rub them directly onto the scalp to relieve a variety to conditions and to even grow their hair. I tried it last wash day. I can't say yet about the hair growth, but my itchies have reduced dramatically, which allows for me to go a few extra days without washing, which means less manipulation.

Anyone else heard or tried this?

My Arab friend told me the ladies in her family do this and they all have waist length or longer hair. I tried to get more hair secrets from her, but she wasn't havin' it. It's like pullin a mouth full of frickin' teeth!

Nope. I just added it to my prewash treatments. I parted my hair into sections, cut the onion in quarters and kind of squeezed as I ran through the parts. Then I let it sit for about 20 minutes and then washed. No lingering onion smell. Next time, I might try the treatment overnight and wash in the morning, if my husband can stand it!

I think I posted this in the Make up forum, as a kid my Grandad would tell me to slice an onion and rub on a spot, boil, rash when I feel it beginning, You must do it early (when u feel the tenderness) and it stops spots

I dont have any itchies

nice to learn or hear of other things that are said to work though

Default Re: Forget Sulfur 8...Just Rub an Onion on Your Head!

It's funny how these old-time remedies work, huh? I've spent so much money over the years trying to soothe my scalp and all I had to do was rub an onion on it! Those come cheap! I'm interested to find out about the hair growth prospect of it too. It sort of makes sense...if onions have such a high content of sulfur, and sulfur is shown to help hair growth...1 + 1 = APL BABY!!!

It seems like it would be hard to rub onion all over your scalp - especially for people like me with very dense hair.

Do you think we could make an oil out of onion or blend some onion in a pre-poo mix. Oooh! I am giving myself some ideas!

if you put the onion in a food processor or blender and puree it, you could probably work with it.

I was in a health food store and noticed a hair pomade that had onions as the first ingredient. It was for alopecia I think. it was $10.

You're giving me ideas too. Tomorrow is wash day and I'm trying to find a better way to distribute.
