Onion peel for shine and healthy hair

Women’s slogan: a beautiful woman is a well-groomed woman. And beauty starts from the head. When a woman has beautiful, well-groomed hair and shines with brilliance, it’s just a feast for the eyes. But today, many women suffer from hair problems that can occur at an early age. Almost every woman is faced with split ends, hair loss, brittle hair and a dull look.

It contains mineral salts, biotin, sulfur, potassium, carotene, zinc, iron, copper, vitamins B, D, E, A. Therefore, it is used in folk medicine.

Onion peel is also used as a medicine for skin diseases of the head:
