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.

    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

    • 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:)

  • 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?
    Pranay

    • 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

        Hi,

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

        Which shampoo do u suggest?

        Pranay

        • Oindrila

          Hi,
          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…
            Pranay

          • 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

  • KHUSHBU THAPAR

    APPLYING ONLY ONION JUICE WILL IT BE FINE ??? OR I NEED TO ADD HONEY IN IT ???? PLZ SUUGEST AS I M TRIED OF HAIR FALL

    • 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

            Hi,

            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

            I HVNT USED ANY OF THESE PRODUTS ONCE ALSO SO WOLUD B THANKFULL TO U :) IF U JUS SUGGEST ME 1 SHAMPOO FOR CNTROLLING HAIR

          • oindy

            Hi,

            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

            hi,
            ok thanks for evything :) god bless

    • 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.

    • 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.

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.

  • 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
      mckrck6@gmail.com

    • 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.

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

  • 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

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.

    Hi Roger, you can choose any size of the onion of your choice. However it is better if you could consider a smaller variety of onions. Both white onions and pink onions contains sulfur in them which is beneficial for hair growth, thus you can apply which ever is available at home or your local grocery store.

This will reduce the pungent smell of onion as well as it will take care of dandruff too. At the end of hair wash…rinsing your hair with vinegar and water or green tea decoction will help you to add a shine to your hair.

    Hi Sonu, Onions contain a number of important minerals and vitamins. It also has a high sulfur content.

High amounts of sulfur in onions make them particularly effective in regenerating hair follicles and stimulating hair regrowth.

    Dear Pradeep, hairfall can be caused due to various reasons like stress, hormone imbalance, lack of proper nutrition or hereditary. It is important to find out the cause of your hairfall..to treat your condition. However the application of onion juice on regular basis will aid in the growth of new hair follicles. You can also try using a mild shampoo after the application of onion juice. If your hairfall still persists after a few weeks then it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.

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

    Thank you Vikash for sharing your wonderful tips ann remedies with us ! Proper nutrition and including nuts like almonds and cashewnut in the diet will provide vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids to the body which in turn will promote the growth of hair. Oiling and massaging the scalp will improve the blood circulation. Aloe vera juice is extensively used for hair loss treatment. Aloe vera contains proteolitic enzymes that promote hair growth. Aloe vera’s alkalizing properties balances the pH level of the scalp and hair which results in further hair growth and retains moisture in the scalp. However all these steps require patience, if followed regularly leads to good results !

      Dear Siva, the number of onions taken to make juice depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Onion juice when combined with coconut oil can be left overnight on hair. Onion juice with coconut oil is good for treating hair loss, particularly if your scalp feels dry and itchy. Applying raw onion juice is an easy and less time consuming way to get its benefits. Thus you can follow any method as per your convenience.

    Hi Siva, if you have an oily scalp then you can just apply raw onion juice and it is safe to apply onion juice and leave it on scalp for overnight treatment.

    Hello,
    I’m from India moved to USA Florida 4 months back, and i’m 26 yrs old. I don’t remember having hairloss before in my life and i started experiencing after coming to US and it’s killing me..I used to work in India and i’m not working now so i have been utilizing this time and lost around 10 pounds by working out in gym and eating healthy food but hair fall is becoming worse..I used baking soda twice for dandruff, i don’t know if this made my hair to fall..i tried to count and i lost around 30 when i comb my hair once and a lot during head bath, I heard people say 100 strands per day is common but it’s scary for me because i never had that before. So, I wanted to try something which doesn’t have any side effects and came across this post..I started using onion today..i grinded 1 red onion with water and applied to scalp and took bath after 2 hours with Pura d’or Hair Loss Prevention Premium Organic Shampoo and i’m planning to do this twice a week..I hope this will work..also please suggest me about shampoo..is Pura d’or Hair Loss Prevention Premium Organic Shampoo good? I heard about The Body Shop shampoo also..please let me know which is mild shampoo to use?

      Dear Sravani, as you know losing 80-100 strands of hair per day is normal, so do not panic and stress out. This sudden change in the pattern of hair loss in your case may happen due to various reasons like new geographic location, change in weather conditions, the water you use, changes in the diet and also because of your recent weight loss and fitness regime. Hair loss is very common when you start working out and lose weight. But you need not worry for long as once you start maintaining a healthy weight and diet then you will also see a new hair growth. It is also advisable to not to change your shampoo brand frequently. Select one particular brand of shampoo which best suits your hair type and continue using that without trying any other product for atleast six months. Applying or massaging raw onion juice on the scalp on a regular basis will also improve the blood circulation and help in controlling hair loss. Hope you found this info to be useful.

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

        Hi Gitesh, it is absolutely normal to lose few strands of hair while applying onion juice or any kind of hair oil. It is widely believed that it is normal to shed 80 – 100 hairs each day. So by applying onion juice just once or twice will not give you instant results. This treatment will require patience and also it is important to not stress yourself out, as growth of healthy hair requires healthy mind and body.
