1. Onion juice: Take 2 fresh onions (preferably red onion). Grate and squeeze to extract juice out of them. Now massage your hair with this onion juice.

Also do keep the following tips in mind to stimulate hair growth.

  • Go for a trim every 10-12 weeks to get rid of split ends before they make their way up your strands, causing hair fall.
  • Eating healthy food also contributes towards boosting hair growth. Opt for a protein rich diet for long, healthy hair.
  • Brushing your hair promotes blood circulation, hence works towards hair growth. But be weary of excessive brushing. And brushing your wet hair too hard is an absolute no-no.
  • Refrain from excessive chemical treatments like coloring, bleaching, perming etc.
