Why onion and not potato?

Well, nothing comes easy. Onions are rich in an essential nutrient required for hair growth: sulphur. A high amount of sulphur in the onions can make them especially effective in stimulating hair regrowth and regenerating hair follicles. Some other essential minerals as well as vitamins include vitamin C and B6, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

Besides being a useful treatment for your hair, onion can help in treating skin conditions because they have the ability to promote blood circulation and decrease inflammation.
