One thing that I have majorly learnt from my Nani ke Nuskhe is that Onion juice does wonders for hair growth. She used to crush onions in a Sil-batta, extract the juice out of the pulp and massage her and my scalp. I used to wonder how can something edible be good like an oil too. After all, Google wasn’t as accessible back in those days like today to cure this curiosity.
Many researchers have termed onion juice a boon for regrowth of hair with regular application. So as I was doing my research regarding onion juice based Ayurvedic products for my scalp, I came across some brilliant options from an all-natural products based brand- “ Upkarma” .
