Take onion juice and mix it with coconut oil to mask its strong smell. Apply evenly on the hair strands and wash off after one hour. This will not only help in hair growth but will also prevent premature greying!
Castor oil treatment
Castor oil is a carrier oil, that means that when it is mixed with another oil, it helps in enhancing the effect of the other oils. Since it is quite thick and rich, using it alone is not advisable. Mix equal parts castor oil and olive oil with one capsule of vitamin e oil, and apply it for an hour or two. After which rinse it thoroughly with shampoo. Even though it is an oil treatment, do not use it overnight. Its richness often results in breakouts on the forehead if left for long.

After shampooing your hair, apply this mixture to wet hair focusing only at the ends and avoiding the roots. Let it set for 15-20 min and then rinse thoroughly without any shampoo. Use this conditioner once a week to avoid dry and brittle hair.
Aloe vera and vitamin e mask
Mixture of aloe vera and vitamin e works wonders as an overnight face treatment. But it is beneficial for hair nourishment as well. Mix 3-4 tbsp aloe vera gel with one full vitamin e capsule and apply this mixture focusing only at the roots. This mixture can be left overnight as well since it dries up completely and gets absorbed thoroughly. It can be rinsed with just water without any shampoo as well. Therefore works as a great alternative when you are wanting to avoid using chemicals on certain days.
