After recovering from COVID-19, some people have been experiencing hair fall. Recently, actor Malaika Arora also shared her struggle with hair loss post-recovering from COVID-19. “Besides my immense weakness, I also experienced quite a bit of hair loss. While I have consulted doctors and my vitamins are on, I am going back to a hair care remedy that I have been doing for years. It just needs one ingredient,” she shared.
Take a look.
Malaika’s go-to remedy is the humble onion juice which is considered effective for controlling hair loss and accelerate re-growth. Even actor Bipasha Basu swears by it. She commented on her post, “Onion juice zindabad!”
Here’s how you can use onion juice.
*Grate an onion and squeeze the juice.
How to apply?
*Divide your hair into sections. With the help of a cotton ball, apply the juice on the scalp. Leave it for 30-45 minutes. Wash with a paraben-free, mild shampoo.
“You will see results in about two weeks,” mentioned Arora.
