Onion Juice Help With Hair

Are you suffering from hair loss? Have you tried numerous products but still got no result? Then you probably forgot looking inside your kitchen; because inside your kitchen is where the ultimate hair fall remedy resides!

It is nothing but onion juice, which can efficiently treat acute hair loss! In fact, onion juice is efficient in promoting hair growth and at the same time, prevents hair loss. The best part of using onion juice as a part of your hair care routine is that it is completely safe. Onions are not only easily available, but they are also inexpensive. They are a cost-effective way of ensuring that your hair gets the nourishment it needs.

You might be thinking how to use the onion treatment for hair growth especially when it smells awful? But think of it this way: wouldn’t you like to get rid of hair fall problems? Moreover, if you already see your hair line receding or some bald patches showing up, isn’t it better to opt for using something you would find in your own home instead of spending more money at the salon where they promise you great results with regular hair spas but which usually don’t work out ?

Want to know more about onion juice and how you can use it to curb your hair fall? Then wait no more and continue reading! So how does onions help fight hair fall and induce hair growth?

Why Is Onion Juice Effective For Hair?

Onions are high in sulfur content. When massaged on the scalp, onion juice helps in improving the blood circulation. In fact, the sulfur content in onions is known to improve collagen production that in turn is beneficial for your hair health. Onion juice has anti-bacterial properties that help in preventing infections on the scalp.

Regular application of onion juice helps to thicken your hair and do away with a variety of scalp problems that are the cause of hair loss and hair thinning. Yeast infections, fungal infections, scalp acne and dandruff can be treated in the long run. Moreover, onion juice suits both dry scalp and oily scalp alike. Application of onion juice promotes healthy hair in a natural manner.

How To Use Onion Juice For Hair?

It is extremely easy to use onion juice for hair.

1. Peel three or four onions and clean them thoroughly in water. It is better if you could consider a smaller variety of onions. Cut the onions into even smaller pieces. Put them in your juicer or blender and then extract the juice.

2. Now apply the juice directly on your scalp and massage gently. Concentrate more on the hair roots and the scalp.

3. Wait for at least one hour and then rinse off using plain water and a mild shampoo. Do it on alternate days to reap the best benefits.

Of course, you should have patience because you won’t get results overnight. Doing on a regular basis for at least a month would start showing results. This method of applying onion juice would take care of problems like hair fall, bald patches (1) and itchy scalp.

4 Simple Onion Juice Recipes For Promoting Hair Growth:

1. Raw Onion Juice:

This is the easiest way to derive the benefits of the sulfur content of onion. Just blend some onions in your food processor and extract the juice; apply this on your scalp and leave for at least 30 minutes or more if you wish; rinse off using a mild shampoo. If this is done for a minimum of thrice a week, you can expect to see results within one or two months. Please be patient as this is a natural remedy (2).

2. Honey-Onion Juice Treatment:

This treatment needs two-fold action – consumption and application. Mix a tablespoon of honey with a quarter-cup onion juice. Take it orally every day. At the same time, use the same recipe for application on your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for about ten minutes and leave it on for 30 minutes.

3. Onion Juice-Oil Blend:

Mix three tablespoons of onion juice with a tablespoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of olive oil. Use this blend for your hair and scalp at least three times a week. It is good for treating hair loss, particularly if your scalp feels dry and itchy.

4. Onion Juice – Rum Concoction:

If you really cannot stand the smell of onions on your hair, you can try this method instead. Put the finely chopped onion in a glass of rum and keep it undisturbed overnight. Do not put this in your refrigerator. Strain the mixture and use the liquid as a hair rinse or to massage the scalp. It works to improve the hair growth.

Onion juice is a time-tested remedy for hair loss and ensures hair growth in bald patches. However, there is one problem associated with onion juice remedy for hair problems. It is a pungent remedy. If you detest the strong onion smell, you might find it difficult to put up with it every alternate day! However, if you get into the habit of tolerating the pungent smell, you can easily ensure that your hair enjoys good health.

    plz rply

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/oindrila/ Oindrila

      If you have colored hair then it may cause it to change color partially.Onion juice is used to make blonde hair color warmer. . But as we have black hair it will not do any such change . .can be applied on oiled hair, apply as directed above

    I think i am more than willing to put up with the putrid smell for a while if it means that i might get my hair back! I am losing so much hair at the moment that i might be bald in almost no time! Thanks Oindrila!

    • Oindrila

      Do share your experience Nimrata. A lot of us Bengalis here use the onion therapy for hair fall here.

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/simrin/ Simrin

    I never knew that it was even possible to grow hair back naturally once you begin to loose it! Oindrila this a great article! Can also give me a few pointers on how i can mask the horrible smell of the onions? I am not sure if just the shampoo will work….any other solutions?

    • Oindrila

      add few drops of essential oil like lavender or any other you like :)

  • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/gurleen/ Gurleen

My hair fall is so bad now that very very soon i am gonna be bald and there isn’t a damn thing i would be able do about it. But tmy only question is how do you keep your hair from smelling yuckie the next day? Smelling like onions wont sit well with my colleagues for sure!

    • Oindrila

      Can add few drops of essential oil like lavender or any other you like :)

  • Yagna

    This is interesting, but Onions? seriously? This is kind of different to apply on the hair, but with the results it shows i think i wont mind giving it a try soon:)

    • Oindrila

      Ya do try :)

  • Takia Pollard

    Onions do work, I just chopped it up & smashed them alittle and applied it to my natural shampoo I made, and it works for me… the next step is to add Garlic

    • Oindrila

      Glad to know that they work for you :)

  • virendra

    • Oindrila

      • micheal

  • mishu

    Onion do works.. I am trying this from last 1 month initially my hair fall was controllled to great extent, however am feeling again hair fall is increased. I am applying onion juice after oil message . Is it ok to apply onion juice on oily hair and then shampoo? or is it less effective since am applying on oily hair? Your suggestion would be great help…

    • Oindrila

      Hi, use it without oiling your hair. Make partings and apply the juice. I hope this helps. :) Cut down on junk food and consume minimum 3 liters water everyday.

  • sanjana

    how many days can we store it?

  • Pranay parmar

    Hi Oindrila,
    Thanks for ur suggestions.
    Please tell me how long it will take to show the results? after reading d posts, I also started applying the onion juice from past one week and massage my scalp after applying. But during the massage, I loose almost 15-20 hairs. I leave for entire night and morning when I shampoo my hairs that time also I loose some.
    Is it ok to extract d juice and store in refrigerator for 2-3 days? will it reduce d power of juice?

    • Oindrila

      Hi, Which shampoo are you using? It is important to use an SLS free and paraben free shampoo.Yes you can extract and store the juice.

      • Pranay parmar


        Thanks for ur reply. I use BIOTIQUE Bio Walnut Bark Shampoo.

        Which shampoo do u suggest?


        • Oindrila

          Soul Tree, Organic Surge, Rustic Art, The Body Shop – you can pick a shampoo from any of these brands

          • pranay parmar

            Okie.. thanks. but do u suggest to consult a doctor for this? its like I have tried all measures to address this issue… right from using soft water.. then eating almonds, carrot, egg.. thn applying onion juice… thn applying Arnica Plus Hair Vitalizer+Trofer…. almost everything :-P but there is no respite from this…
            plz suggest…

          • Oindrila

            Hi, yes, if its an internal problem like a hormonal problem, you need to consult with your doc. Drinking 4 liters of water a day is recommended. If you are based in Kolkata, there’s one brand Arish that is patented for hair fall control. Else try the oil mentioned here http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/hair-growth-therapy-diy/ Has helped me greatly.

  • Michael Oremaj Mosende

    please help me i’m losing my hair day by day,almost bald. is it really effective to use onions.thank you very much ms.oindrila



    • Oindrila

      Hi, yes you can add honey or use it just onion juice. Also, use a good paraben and sls free shampoo. There are several brands in the market which claim to stop hair fall but indirectly lead to greater hair fall. Stay away from those. Also drink 3 liters of water a day and cut down on junk food intake. Hope this helps :)

      • khushi

        hi oindrila m happy dat u r so concernd thanks fr ur help. I will surly try it . but can u plz guide me bywat does paraben and sls free shampoo means???

        • Oindrila

          Hi, Your shampoo needs to be free of harsh chemicals that damage hair in the long run. Google for paraben and sls free shampoos in India. :) You can try from brands like Organic Surge, Rustic Art, Soul Tree, The Body Shop. All of them have such shampoos. I am currently using Organic Surge Shine Boost shampoo and it works great for me.

          • KHUSHBU THAPAR

            hi, :)
            ok I wl go n get d shampoo frm the body shop . n d 1 u r using will it b fine if I use it for protecting ma hairfall n increasing the growth????

          • Oindrila


            Yes you can try the Body shop Rainforest Shine Shampoo or any other of these shampoos. Even Soul Tree is good. But these shampoos won’t lather much.

          • KHUSHBU THAPAR


          • KHUSHBU THAPAR


          • oindy


            I really have no experience with Batra’s. I think you can try Soul Tree Triphala Hair Revitalizing Shampoo. You can once check with your doctor if any internal problems are causing excessive hair fall. Sometimes hormonal disorders, stress etc can lead to hair fall.

          • KHUSHBU THAPAR

            ok thanks for evything :) god bless

  • prakash


    Can i use the small onion?

    • Natural Kinky Curly Marie

      You have to see your Healthcare provider; Physician regarding this severe long term hair loss issue. An Online forum can only offer you advice. Get a second opinion if you have to and tests for proper diagnosis of whatever is causing your hair loss to help come to a solution. Also Natural treatments Take time to work. Sometimes they provide little to No Results at all if there’s an undelying medical issue involved.

  • boomi raju

    dear, how to make the onion juice pls tell me any body.

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Boomi, to make onion juice peel three or four onions and clean them thoroughly in water. It is better if you could consider a smaller variety of onions. Cut the onions into even smaller pieces. Put them in your juicer or blender and then extract the juice.

  • anu

    i have been using onion juice for more than a month.. but my hair fall hasnt reduced yet.. my hair is still getting thinner day by day..

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Anu, hairfall can be caused due various reasons like lack of nutrition, dandruff, stress, pollution, hormonal imbalance etc. Despite the regular application of onion juice, if your hairfall hasn’t reduced then i would suggest you to consult a dermatologist to find out the actual cause of hairfall and take necesssary steps to combat hairfall.

    Hi Guys,
    I know wat it feels if we loose hairs, I have gone thru various treatments like homeopathy, allopathy,ayurveda in last 6 yrs, Then i come to know about onion juice thru this website. Initially i thot its a joke but then i thot will give a sincere try for 3 months atleast. It’s more than 3 weeks i m using this treatment ,I use this treatment 3 times a week. I cant say that my hairs are grown back as it will take some time. But my hairs are dense as compared to 3 weeks earlier.

    • Akanksha

  • Manish Arora

    This works. I am using this for over a month now and have notice small hair popping out from that almost dead areas. Going to use this method forever. Also using Livon hair tonic as directed by them, I have abused my hair a lot earlier and now patience is the key. But….. I am loving the results.

    • Micky Sky

      Manish where did you get this oil please help me out

    • Maximus

      manish… using daily fresh onion or refrigerated juice?… what about the smell?

      • Rupali

        one day old refrigerated juice will work, but not more. As far as possible, use fresh onion juice. The smell would be there, but you can blend the onion juice with other herbal powders like Amla, Ritha, Shikekai etc to reduce the smell. And this really works. I’ve tried many things in my life as well and had lost a lot of hair. My hairline had receded a lot as well. However, after starting this remedy, I could see small hair growing within the first one or two weeks. The bald patches vanished completely within the first month.

        • Digvijay Singh

          hii rupali…cud u plz tell…is it really working???

    • chaitu

      sir, is it really true. Please tell seriously.. I tried so many methods to reduce hair fall but nothing workout… :(

  • Manish Arora

    Some suggestions, take this therapy before going to bed and do not use any shampoo or use baby shampoo since that is mild, after you use this therapy. To avoid, use Badaam Rogan oil (bit scented) and sleep. This will also nourish your hair and will take that onion smell away so that you will be able to sleep easily. Also head massage before sleep leads to a good sleep. Rinse your hair with shampoo in the morning and apply your regular hair oil, where I use Livon as I stated earlier. Eat food that is very rich in iron, zinc and protein. Do some form of exercise with routine since a good blood pressure pumps the process and try to live happy life with no depression since this is a key factor of hair loss. Of course a quality sleep is must for all this. Try it and keep faith and give it some time since this is not a fast hair grow formula and this needs its own area of development like a plant, the more you support and nurture, the more better it gets. Best of luck.

      Hi Rakesh, you can use any mild shampoo to wash your hair after the application of onion juice. There are many ways to get rid of the onion smell from the scalp. An apple cider vinegar rinse or a few drops of lemon juice mixed in water rinse will help you to remove the onion smell from your hair. And for the onion juice to be effective it is advisable to freshly prepare it, followed by immediate application, instead of storing it in a refrigerator.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Stored onion is harmful as onion has the ability to accumulate bacteria once it’s cut. It’s advise advised to apply for 1 to 2 hrs. Its has the property to increase heat in the body, so longer exposure can be uncomfortable

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    It makes you dull and makes ur breath Intolerable. Some ppl get this sensation to puke. Honey hides the discomfort of the taste and smell and helps in blending with the digestive process

  • Prajna

    I have been using onion juice…smaller or bigger variety..whatever I get. I use it once a week as I don’t get much time for increasing the frequency. I am glad to say that it reduces, sometimes completely stops hair fall. I has also promoted hair growth. Moreover, my dandruff problem has reduced. I must recommend this for those who want to get rid of dandruff, hair fall and want to increase volume of hair.
    I would also suggest use of warm castor oil on ur scalp and massage gently in circular more for 10 mins. It really works to improve hair growth.

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

    Hi Luvit, to combat the smell of onion juice you can apply olive oil in liberal quantities after the onion juice treatment and sleep with a hair cap on your head.

Rinse your hair with water and massage the scalp well. Allow your hair to dry well after a wash so as to remove any onion smell from it.

    Reading all of this is very confusing, just need a simple way to try. I color my hair and worry about losing the color, I only wash my hair twice a week, and have thin hair where my hair parts and the crown, so what is your suggestion.

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Illya, colouring your frequently may lead to thinning of hair. Onion juice is beneficial for hair health. It helps in thickening of hair…and eliminates hairfall and thinning of hair. It is advisable that you try applying onion juice to your hair twice in a week regularly for a month and see the difference and once your hair growth increases then you may try coloring your hair once in a while. Remember to use good hair color products to avoid losing the texture and health of your hair.

  • Diyanshu

    i am applying the onion juice for about two months..can see new baby hairs coming, but still usually see few baby hairs falling out while applying juice . So, is it ok . Also, is shampoo necessary after every application. I am using it daily, sometimes i do shampoo while sometimes i just wash my hair thouroughly with plain water . is this metohd ok ?? or i need to shampoo daily. Kindly reply

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Dear Diyanshu, a little hairfall during the application of onion juice or shampoo or oil is absolutely normal. Also, it is not necessary to apply shampoo to your hair after every application..as long as you are alright with the smell of onion. Washing your hair thoroughly with plain water is just fine.
