Many things, including change in weather, increased stress levels or an unnoticed lifestyle change, can have an effect on your hair growth. These may even cause other issues like abnormal hair fall and dandruff. While some amount of hair fall is OK, excessive loss can become a cause for concern. So, if you have been experiencing persistent hair fall, it is time you put a stop to it and apply a homemade hair mask. While onion juice has been considered to be an effective remedy by itself, when combined with aloe vera and coconut oil, it becomes an even more effective combination, explained Reema Gupta, acupressure therapist from Divine Care fame.
