The “I Like It” singer, 29, posted a video of her current long, flawless hairstyle on Instagram on Friday, along with a caption explaining how she grows her hair using water that has been cooked with onions.
She wrote in the post’s caption, “My last two washes I’ve been cooking onions and using the water to wash my hair.” “Six years ago, when I first began my quest toward healthy hair development, I used to do this. Due to extreme laziness, I quit.”
“I find that it’s been adding a sheen to my hair,” she continued, “and it’s odorless.” Responses on the haircare advice were generally negative.
JL Bunny, an online creator, wrote: “A media figure named Jerome Trammel said, “Yassss hair! My hair inspo for real,” and added, “My hair! Aaliyah is getting her distinctive look from it!”
After attempting a comparable hack herself, one user expressed doubt about the onions being odorless. “I have to try cooking the onions,” actress and screenwriter Juju Castaneda retorted. For a full year, whenever I had my hair straightened or blow-dried, it would smell like Sofrito since I had been juicing them for too much.
Owing to the vegetable’s “anti-inflammatory and antibacterial characteristics,” which might assist you in growing your hair or enhance its healthy look,” incorporating onion into a haircare regimen may be advantageous.
Tiffany Young, a trained trichologist and the CEO of ThinHairThick, said to Martha Stewart in March that onion juice “has the ability to activate hair follicles and consequently induce hair growth.”
“It has inherent antibacterial properties. There may be a benefit for hair loss brought on by inflammatory diseases, poor blood flow, and bad diet.” The Grammy-winning artist de-glammed previously this week to post pictures of her naked face and “mustache” on social media.
