How To Use Onion Juice For Hair Growth

Onion, one of the most commonly used vegetables in India besides potato. It is used in almost every dish and has now become like a necessity for Indian cuisine but did you know that onions can be used for something other than cooking food, something that bothers a lot of people worldwide. Yes, we are talking about hair fall. Premature balding, patchy hair growth, hair fall, and weak hair are a problem that stresses a lot of people irrespective of their age. There are a lot of hair fall prevention products and shampoos out there on the market but none would be as effective as Onion. Onion has several different minerals and vitamins which aids in preventing hair fall and also helps in promoting hair regeneration. Take a look at these remedies if you are suffering from hair fall as well.

Onion Puree

You Will Need:

  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon of Turmeric Powder
  • Water

How To:

  • Peel and cut an onion into medium-sized pieces. You can cut more onion depending on your hair length.
  • Put a cup of water to boil and place the onion slices in it. Add a tablespoon of turmeric powder in it and give it a little swirl.
  • Keep the mixture over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes till the onion pieces become soft and tender and yellow in color.
  • Strain the liquid and put the boiled onion in a blender. Grind the onion to make a thick puree.
  • Gently spread the onion paste over your damp hair and cover the scalp completely.
  • Put a shower cap or dirty towel on your head for about half an hour so before washing the onion paste off with a mild shampoo.
  • Use this onion puree twice a week to promote new hair growth.

Onion works wonders for people suffering from hair fall and patchy hair growth. It strengthens the scalp from within revitalizing the hair strands and promoting hair growth. Although the smell of onion makes this remedy a little less popular.

Honey and Onion Juice

You Will Need:

  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey

How To:

  • Peel and cut the onion just like the previous remedy but grind it straight away this time instead of boiling it first.
  • Put the puree in a cheesecloth and then squeeze it tightly to extract a translucent liquid. This is called onion juice.
  • Add a tablespoon of honey to the onion juice and mix them together to make a dense mixture.
  • Apply this paste all over your hair and scalp and massage them for a few minutes. Massaging opens up the hair follicles and allow them to absorb the solution more efficiently.
  • Let the paste settle in your hair and dry out for an hour or thereabouts. You can cover your head with something to avoid any drippings.
  • Use a mild shampoo and conditioner to wash off the dried onion and honey paste from your hair.
  • Repeat this remedy on alternate days to curb hair fall.

Honey has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties which prevent any fungal buildup or dandruff to appear on your hair. This paste constantly provides nutrition to the hair, stopping hair fall in a short amount of time and also giving rise to new hair strands.

Onion and Rum

You Will Need:

  • 2-3 Onions
  • 1 Cup of Rum

How To:

  • Cut the onions into small size pieces and put them in a cup of rum to soak overnight.
  • Strain the onions in the morning and put the onion-infused rum aside in a bowl.
  • Wash your hair with this rum two to three times in a go. Keep a big bowl under your hair to catch the dripping rum and then use it again to wash your hair.
  • Repeat this step for 10-15 minutes and then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Follow up with a conditioner if you have dry hair.
  • This remedy can be used two to three times a week to strengthen your hair and stop them from falling. You can store the rum and use it for a week as well.

You might think that rum is an odd addition to this list but it has been known to cure hair fall since a long time ago. Rum absorbs all the protein from the onions making it even more beneficial for the hair, especially for people with dry hair.

Yogurt and Onion Juice

You Will Need:

  • 2 Tablespoons of Onion Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Yogurt

How To:

  • Extract a couple tablespoons of onion juice just like you did in the second remedy.
  • Add a tablespoon of yogurt in this and mix the ingredients together to make a smooth paste. You can add more yogurt if you have dry hair or onion juice if you have oily hair.
  • Dampen your hair with some water and then apply the yogurt-onion paste over it. Spread it on your scalp and massage it for a few minutes to distribute the paste evenly.
  • Cover it up with a shower cap for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Use lukewarm water along with a mild herbal shampoo to rinse off the paste from your hair and remove the smell as well.
  • Repeat the whole process twice or thrice a week to get the best results.

Yogurt is a natural astringent with a huge source of protein and vitamin C which are essential for the proper health of our scalp. This paste helps the scalp in breathing and treating the factors causing hair fall on their own.

Onion Juice and Garlic

You Will Need:

  • 1 Tablespoon of Onion Juice
  • 2-3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon of Olive Oil

How To:

Crush some garlic cloves to extract the juice from them.
Add a tablespoon of onion juice and a teaspoon of olive oil in the garlic juice and mix them together thoroughly.
Apply this mixture on your hairs and scalp and spread it evenly all around.
Leave your hairs as it is for an hour or so to allow the mixture to dry out completely.
Wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo to rinse off the dried paste from your hair.
Use this recipe in an interval of a day to cure hair fall and promote the growth of new hair.
Garlic contains sulfur, zinc, and calcium which contribute towards the growth of hair and prevent them from falling. This paste makes the hair healthier and stronger enabling them to withstand any environmental damage that may weaken the core.
