Cardi B’s unorthodox hair care secret will fill your eyes with tears.
The 29-year-old rapper announced on Instagram on Friday that she soaps her hair with boiled onion water.
“My last 2 washes I’ve cooked onions and used the water to wash my hair,” she captioned a photo of her natural hair from behind.
“I did this 6 years ago as I started my journey to healthy hair growth,” the artist said, “I Like It.”
“I stopped because I was getting really lazy. It is odorless and I find it gives my hair shine.”
The comment section was full of supportive messages from fans wanting to try the tantalizing exercise for themselves.
“Let me put a jar of onions on rn,” one user wrote.
“I make all my hair products from real foods and herbs…it really works,” said another.
Experts agreed that the longtime Bronx native, born Belcalis Almanzar, is on to something.
Onions contain “compounds that can help improve dry, damaged hair,” according to a Healthline article on the grooming technique.
The vegetable may also stimulate hair growth, treat alopecia and counteract graying skin, proponents claim.
