The #GrowYourEdges hair challenge is getting more interesting by the day! It began with massaging the front part of my hair with Jamaican Black Castor, to finding that onion juice can also be used to restore the front part of my hair. As promised, I surfed the web over the weekend to find out how extracting onion juice is done.
For the past 3 weeks, I have been applying Jamaican Black Castor oil on my edges.Results below. I decided to give onion juice a try.
Extracting onion juice was actually easier than I thought. I was able to buy 4 medium size bulbs of onions for fifty naira. I noticed that in the market, you have some onions with purple skins and some others with brown skin. I bought both types. But I used the one with the purple skins not for any particular reason though.
What you will Need
- Blender or grater
- Bottle to store the juice
- Sieve cloth of cotton fabric
Steps to Extracting Onion Juice
- Rinsed the onions under running water.
- Diced the onions into smaller pieces
- Used a manual hand grinder to grind the chopped onions
- I had no sieve cloth, so I used a cotton handkerchief to separate the juice from the grated onions
- I then poured the onion juice into a small plastic bowl with lid.
- Stored the juice in my fridge
When I was done extracting, the juice, I was smelling like a pot of either fried rice or some native soup. I would recommend you do this extraction before you take your bath. Or you take a bath when done.
How to Apply
Because of the strong smell of onions, I would apply the onion juice to the scalp of my front hair every night. Then cover my hair with a satin cap. The next morning I would wash it off while taking my bath.Share with friends
