Proceed to apply the freshly squeezed onion juices on your scalp in a thorough and vigorous manner. You should let the juices marinate on your scalp for at least 15 minutes, although most experts recommend a full hour for optimal results. Finally, wash your hair with a sulphate and parabens free shampoo and warm water.

Mix the ingredients vigorously to form the potato hair mask and apply it to your scalp, leaving it in for an hour. Finish off by washing your hair with water and a mild shampoo product.

To create the egg mask you will need to mix 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and the egg whites of 2 eggs together. Next, apply the mask to your scalp and make sure that your hair is also covered. Allow the mask to sit for 20 minutes before washing your hair with a mild shampoo and warm water.
Apple cider vinegar is also a popular natural hair growth remedy, as it helps accelerate hair growth by stimulating hair follicles. However, apple cider vinegar should be used as an afterwash treatment. Simply add water to the apple cider solution and apply it after you are done shampooing your hair as a final rinse treatment. If you are worried about smelling like vinegar you can add a few drops of a pleasant smelling essential oil-such as lavender oil-to help mask the smell.
Fenugreek has also been used for eons as a natural hair growth remedy. Simply fill a large pan with water and add two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds to the pan, allowing the seeds to soak for 24 hours. Next, strain the pan and use the fenugreek spice infused water to rinse your hair. It is important to allow the water to remain on your hair for at least 3 hours before you wash your hair with lukewarm water. Never use hot water after applying a fenugreek treatment. Applying the treatment to your hair everyday for a month will help your hair gain both strength and volume.
Finally, you can use an ayurvedic herbal remedy to help with hair growth. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C that will not only help boost collagen formation but also ward off free radicals that damage hair. This remedy will also help improve hair pigmentation. To make the shampoo you will need 100 grams of alma (Indian gooseberry), 100 grams of soapnut or reetha, and 100 grams of shikakai. Begin by soaking all 3 herbs in a 2 liter pot of water and allow them to sit overnight.
Next, boil the water until it is reduced to half its original volume and allow the water to cool. Next, mash the cooled herbs to a pulp using your hands in the pot of water. Then, strain and collect the concoction and place it in another container. Once complete you can wash your hair with the homemade shampoo. However, unlike regular shampoos, you should not rub it into your scalp. Instead you should gently apply it over your wet hair and allow your hair to soak in the organic shampoo for 5 to 10 minutes. This treatment should be used for 2 months in order to notice results, and should not get in contact with your eyes.
