DIY turnip hair lotion: for dandruff, growth and hair loss

Hey guys! Today I have another DIY for you: black turnip juice as a lotion for hair loss, dandruff and fast hair growth. It is a popular method of cheap hair growth promoted by hair bloggers from many years ago. I have tested it several times in my life because it is incredibly cheap, quite effective and easily available. 

Unfortunately, it is very unpleasant to use – the scalp burns terribly from it. So I don’t recommend testing for sensitive scalps, there’s no point in getting tired! However, I can assure you that apart from the baking and the strange smell of the vegetable, I had no problems with this lotion. No irritation, itching or an increase in hair loss. On the contrary, the turnip has proved to be great for me! Like nothing else, it helped in the fight for beautiful and long hair.

For centuries, black turnip has been used in natural cosmetics as a remedy to strengthen the bulbs, accelerate hair growth, thicken them by the overflow of baby hair, it also helped to eliminate dandruff and reduce hair loss. Due to its valuable properties and action, the black turnip extract is the basis of shampoos and conditioners to this day, and you can also find it in ready-made scalp lotions. Their action, however, will not be as fast and effective as fresh juice. In addition, this home treatment with black turnips is very cheap, natural and easy to do – turnips at the market cost pennies and we need even a week of daily use. That’s why I invite you to my post and a recipe for DIY turnip home-made soap.

Black turnip juice lotion- notes:

You can get used to the scent of turnips, but the scalp is a bit sticky, so use this treatment once a day, at night – or rub it in only before washing your hair.

The stinging and feeling hot after rubbing it in is intense, but it disappears after a few minutes and should not irritate the scalp. Just in case, I recommend using something soothing as a replacement, such as aloe vera juice, or witch hazel.

The remaining juice can be stored in the refrigerator for next use. However, it is better to prepare fresh portions each time, because the smell of turnips becomes stronger and the liquid spoils quickly.
