Natural hair-dyeing agent

Most hair-dyeing agents are made of synthetic ingredients and bring negative impacts to human health. When onion is used as a hair-dyeing agent, it is biologically safe, as onions do not carry any carcinogens. The only possible drawback is that the user has to bear the pungent smell.

Method:

  1. Peel off the purple onion skins and soak them in water.
  2. Wait until the water changes color before using it to dye your hair.

Such a natural dyeing agent is safe, and the color can last one to two months.
