DIY Homemade Onion Juice and Honey Hair Loss Treatment

Onion juice is one of the best home remedies for thinning hair and hair loss. Its sulfur content improves blood circulation, stimulates hair follicles and promotes hair regrowth.

Sulfur is considered one of the primary building blocks of hair. It is required for healthy collagen and keratin. Many amino acids, the building blocks of protein, have a sulfur component, and keratin proteins have large amounts of sulfur-containing amino acids.

Studies have also found onions to be useful for treating hair loss. Plus, onions 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 suffering from alopecia areata who applied onion juice to their scalp twice daily for 2 months had a significantly higher rate of hair regrowth than those in the control group who used tap water. The results were better among males than females.

The following recipe will also promote smooth and shiny hair due to the addition of honey. Honey is loaded with antioxidants and attracts moisture.

  1. One can also add onion juice to a small bowl of pure coconut oil (about 2 to 3 tablespoons), steep for a week or more, then use to apply on scalp. One can also add more onion juice and steep in a bottle of coconut oil and use as necessary. Keep overnight (you can either place a shower cap on your hair or put an old shirt or dress over your pillow case to avoid oil stains). Wash off gently, using warm water and mild shampoo (preferably herbal – like shikakai). Soak up excess water from hair and scalp with a towel and leave hair loose to dry naturally while at home or dry by sitting or walking in sunshine. Frequent use of hair dryer to dry hair can also contribute to hair dryness, frizziness, and hair loss. Onion juice is a life saver! (or should I say, hair saver?!)
