Onion Juice – New Topical Treatment For Hair Loss

Hair loss can affect your scalp or your entire body. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss.

Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what’s causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually.

Some types of hair loss are temporary, and others are permanent.



Onions are rich in sulfur. This mineral is one of the main building blocks of hair. It improves blood circulation and provides the hair follicles with sufficient nourishment.

Onions also have anti-bacterial properties, so it helps with scalp infections that might contribute to hair loss and can help control issues like dandruff and scalp infections as well as reverse premature graying.

A small study published in the Journal of Dermatology in 2002 found that participants who applied onion juice twice daily for two months experienced much better hair re-growth rates compared to those who only used tap water. Men had better success with the treatment than did women.


– Wash 1 large onion thoroughly and peel off the outer layers.
– Chop the onion into smaller pieces and toss into a blender.
– Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of honey to the onion juice.
– Optionally, add a few drops of an essential oil, such as lavender oil.

Directions: Massage the juice into your hair, concentrating on the roots and the scalp.

Keep it on for 30-45 minutes and wash with shampoo.

This is a natural treatment, so you’ll have to be a bit patient to see the results.

Use it daily (or minimum three times a week) and allow at least two months for your hair to start becoming stronger and shinier.

Warning: Some people have reported suffering from a red, itchy scalp after applying onion juice – it is, after all, very strong.

You might like to test it on a very small area before applying it all over your scalp and you should definitely avoid any sore areas, particularly those with broken skin.

Note: See your doctor if you notice sudden or patchy hair loss or more than usual hair loss when combing or washing your or your child’s hair.

Sudden hair loss can signal an underlying medical condition that requires treatment.
