Let me share with you my hair loss story. When I was 19 years old, I started losing hair. At that time, it was very small patch at my crown area. Almost invisible. Someone had to look deeper in order to see it . Over the period, it started growing, I also started thinning my hair. After not providing attention to it for 9 long years, here is how it looked like (I know it looks horrible)
I have used Onion/Garlic juice for 7-8 weeks with varying degree of success. First of all, it helped me to get rid of Fungal infection on my scalp permanently. That’s what I believed at least initially. But now I believe that scalp itching has more to do with internal imbalances than something external.
For first few weeks, it actually increased my hair loss and few of my close friends even commented that I was losing density in the crown area. I was very much worried.
However, when I saw the density of crown reducing day by day, I started getting panic attacks. Whenever I used to look at mirror, I used to get those panic attacks. Whenever someone used to comment on my hair, I used to get panic attacks.
Interestingly, this gentleman decided to stop using the juice for 4 months to see if it has any impact on his newly grown hair and guess what ?
He lost all the hair he had regrown in those 9 months. Then he again started using it to regrow lost hair.
Anything you apply topically whether it’s Minoxidil, Onion juice or magic hair growth serum, the effects will not last long. Of course, it’s better to use Onion juice over Minoxidil if given the choice but it’s just treating the symptoms. I am not advocating that you shouldn’t be using it.
If you want a long lasting solution, it will come from diet changes, addressing nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle interventions.

How I started reversing Male Pattern Baldness naturally ?
Here is transformation
However, it’s not just because of onion. It’s a combination of everything I tried.
If your hair fall has different root cause/s like
1. Thyroid Imbalance
2. Lack of Vitamins/Minerals
3. Chronic Illness
4. Immune System Malfunction
7. Hair Products/Dyes
8. Hard/Contaminated water
Again, this is not exhaustive list by any chance.
(You have to identify what are the contributing factors for your hair loss and eliminate/reduce it in order to stop your hair loss) A lot many times, the metabolic stress comes from diet and lifestyle (and medications).
A lot many people think that whatever they are consuming is Healthy Diet. In my definition, healthy diet is the diet which reduces your metabolic stress and promotes optimum metabolism.
So Why Onion Juice works in the first place ?
Onion is rich in sulfur which promotes hair growth. Do you know something interesting Onion + Garlic works much better. Not just because of Sulphur but because of Vitamin B6.
So my suggestion to you is to get more Sulphur and Vitamin B6 from diet rather than applying it topically.
How to prepare Onion Juice ?
You can put it on your scalp for 30 minutes to 2 hours. If it’s irritating your scalp, you can wash your hair within 30 minutes with organic shampoo (SLS, SLES free shampoo)
To avoid onion flakes getting in your hair, use cloth to filter the juice and store it in a bottle. For best results combine Onion, Garlic and Apple Cider Vinegar. (Make sure Apple Cider Vinegar is Raw) Always use this brand. It’s expensive but it’s worth it.
Using it for a month, it completely stopped my dandruff and inflammation on scalp (but when I stopped it for a longer period, itching and dandruff returned) there was also reduction in my hair loss over 7-8 weeks.
Along with onion/garlic/ACV juice, I also successfully combined other methods to increase density of my frontal hair along with regrowing hair in my crown area. Have a look at some of my photos
