Coconut Oil is rich in lauric acid. Organic Coconut oil stimulates hair growth by getting deep into its follicles, therefore promotes scalp health. Hair is hollow on the inside. Coconut oil completely penetrates this space and gives hair more body. Coconut oil prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length by preventing “hygral fatigue”. To know if you have “hygral fatigue”, you simply stretch your wet hair strand and release it. If your hair doesn’t bounce back to its natural shape or if it breaks while stretching, you hair suffers from this condition. Good news. Coconut Oil can combat this. Already sound very promising right?



Onion juice can provide extra sulfur to support strong and thick hair, thus preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth. Just one of the many benefits of onions. Sulfur from onions may also promote collagen production, which helps the production of healthy skin cells and hair growth. We will also examine this way of collagen production in homemade skin care products. 



Lemon juice is a great natural ingredient to promote hair health and growth, besides fighting against dandruff.  Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which boosts the production of collagen which in turn helps your hair grow. Lemon juice stimulates re-growth from dormant hair follicles, is anti-fungal and helps control the production of oil in your scalp.
