Along with onions, these remedies contain other ingredients like honey, castor oil, and turmeric. Both are safe to use and have amazing benefits for your skin, hair, and overall health. Here is a little breakdown:

Turmeric – contains antioxidant that helps strengthen your hair and protect it from damage caused by harmful molecules. It contains both anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, which can prove to be a useful tool if you have oily hair or scalp.

Honey – contains anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that stop the growth of fungal or dandruff buildup on your scalp. It also helps provide your hair with important nutrients and minerals naturally.

Organic raw honey contains emollient and humectant properties that add moisture to the hair follicles. This naturally smooths the hair shaft and restores shine and luster to frizzy, dry, curly, or dull hair.

Castor Oil – increases blood flow to the scalp, which promotes healthier hair. Applying castor oil just once a month can boost hair growth up to five times the usual rate.

It also helps moisturize dry and irritated scalp. If you suffer from dandruff, Castor oil will help reduce your symptoms as well.
