Despite the numerous amount of hairstyles, long and thick hair is still considered to be one of the main attributes of femininity and beauty. But due to stress, emotional pressure, and a polluted environment, almost every girl’s hair becomes thinner, more dull, and starts to fall out. You will need: 4–5 onions and water In order to get back to thick, gorgeous hair, you can prepare a special rinse made of onion and water. You don’t need any special skills or equipment for this and 2 procedures per week will give you great results.
6. Removing Extra Hair
Excessive hair growth in women is associated with an increased level of testosterone. Laser epilation is one option you can use to get rid of this, but it’s an expensive procedure. There are more budget-friendly methods that are also as effective. For example, Indian women remove unwanted hair with the help of a spice.
You will need: 2 tablespoon of turmeric and latex gloves. Mix turmeric and water and apply the paste to the areas where you want to remove the hair. After several sessions, hair starts to become thinner and then disappear completely.

Gelatin should be mixed with 4 tablespoon of lukewarm water and heated in a water bath until dissolved. After that the hair balm and oil should be added to it.
