Thyme for hair growth

If you have dull hair, and split ends, apple cider vinegar will bring your hair back to life. But you need to be careful using it, because there is a risk, with apple cider vinegar, of hair breakage. So, when you first start using apple cider vinegar, try it once a week, but then switch to once a month at the most.

After you have shampooed and conditioned your hair, mix one part apple cider vinegar with three parts water, and use that as a rinse.

I bet that one caught you by surprise! But really, onions have incredible antifungal and antibacterial properties that are great for your scalp. But that’s not all! Onions contain sulfur which is extremely good for your hair. You don’t have to worry too much about smelling oniony, because you are going to use this hair growth home remedy before you shampoo.

Put a cut up onion in your blender with some water. Blend it until smooth and strain out the juice. That onion juice is what you will use for this hair growth home remedy. Transfer the juice into a spray bottle and spray it onto your hair and your scalp. Then cover your hair with a shower cap and sit under a hooded dryer just to get the heat to penetrate your hair. Then shampoo your hair as you normally would.

    Also check out "A Baldness Cure", I can't post it to a medical journal, but science will back it when science improves itself as science seems to do so well after being proven wrong!

    Do you leave the thyme and oil in or do you need to rinse it out as well.
