Cardi B‘s unorthodox haircare secret will fill your eyes with tears.

The 29-year-old rapper took to Instagram Friday to reveal that she lathers her hair with boiled onion water.

“My last 2 washes I been boiling onions and using the water to wash my hair,” she captioned a picture of her natural hair from behind.

“I used to do this 6 years ago when I started my healthy hair growth journey,” the “I Like It” artist said.

“I stopped cause I got really lazy. Its odorless and I notice that it’s been giving a shine to my hair.”

The comment section was full of supportive messages from fans who wanted to try the pungent practice for themselves.

“Let me put a pot of onions on rn,” one user wrote.

“I make all my hair products from real food and spices ..it really works,” another said.

Experts agreed that the longtime Bronx resident, born Belcalis Almanzar, is onto something.

Onions contain “compounds that may help to enhance dry, damaged hair,” according to a Healthline article about the grooming technique.

The vegetable can also encourage hair growth, treat alopecia and reverse graying, advocates claim.
