There is another solution for onion as well. Cut in half one red onion and add to it four cloves of garlic along with two cinnamon sticks. Put all of the ingredients in a pot and boil them for 15 minutes.
Then rinse your hair with this home remedy for hair growth four days in a row.
Grapessed oil is known to be an old hair growth home remedy and all you would have to do is to massage your scalp with this oil every day before bedtime.
