Bad hair reflects bad hair care. From hectic schedules to stress, there are a host of reasons that may be why your hair went from healthy to damaged. Dull-looking dry hair with split ends and tangles is a look no one wants to wear. However, all these conditions weaken the hair in terrible ways. Chemical processing, excessive heat exposure and genetic factors are also reasons your hair is not looking its best. However, there is a solution to every problem no matter how bad your hair issues may be. Here are a few natural treatments you can try to strengthen weak hair.

You'll need one onion, blender/juicer/grater and a strainer. Start by peeling the outer layers of the onion and then throw in it the blender or juicer. Once pulped, strain the juice from the mixture. Apply this juice to your hair and let it sit for a good 30-40 minutes. Rinse the juice off with shampoo.
