My googling skills are failing me and I can't seem to figure out exactly what the item does. Could someone quickly tell me please? Thank you!

It reduces the length of weakness by 50%. Weakness lasts 3 minutes, so Onion Helm will knock that down to 1 minute 30 seconds.

Plus you start off with stats on your head which you don't originally.

I was playing with this and it seems that you have to die with it equipped in order to work, if you die with another helmet (or helmet-less) and put it on upon returning to the camp the original weakness timer of 3 minutes remains.

I believe this is the countermeasure to avoid it becoming an overpowered item, or at least one that we must carry forever.
