How To Make Onion Juice For Hair Growth & Strong Hair

How To Make Onion Juice At Home

Making fresh onion juice in the confines of our home is no rocket science! All you require are a few onions, a juicer, lots of patience, and the ability to handle the strong odor of onion that might burn your eyes!

Ready for the challenge? Go ahead and have a look:

You Will Need
  • 2-3 medium size onions
  • A sharp knife
  • A juicer
  • A medium-size glass jar
What You Need To Do
  1. Start the process by peeling an onion.
  2. Place the peeled onion in the sink under running water to rinse it. This step will help you clean the vegetable properly by getting rid of all types of dirt and flecks of skin.
  3. Take a fresh paper towel and pat the onion dry.
  4. Cut the dried onion into end-to-end quarters using a sharp knife.
  5. Now, put an onion quarter inside the chute of the juicer and turn the device on. It will smash the vegetable by putting force on it and extract the juice completely. Juice up the other quarters one by one in the same manner.
  6. Once you are done with juicing the entire onion, clean and wash your juicer properly. You may also have to dip the device in hot lathered water as well as scrub it for quite a few minutes to get rid of the strong, long-lasting aroma of the vegetable.
  7. Collect the fresh juice and transfer it to a glass jar for further use.

Note: Apart from a juicer, a blender (hand-operated or machine) or even a grater can be used for making onion juice. In the case of a blender, you have to follow the aforementioned procedure exactly for preparing the onion for juicing. And if you are juicing an onion using a grater, there is no need to cut off the opposite ends of the vegetable.


Onion Juice for Hair Growth Frequently Asked Questions

How much time does it take to see results?

It takes a while before noticing results – as much as four to six weeks. According to the research about onion juice for hair growth, at four weeks, hair re-growth was seen in 74% of the participants and, at six weeks, the hair re-growth was observed in 87% of the participants.

Does the onion juice treatment really work?

According to the research, 87% of the participants had hair regrowth by using the onion juice twice daily on their scalp. Some of the readers of this article also left comments that it worked for them.

Does it matter what type of onion is used for the hair loss treatment?

There are various types of onions, and they are all vary slightly in flavor, texture, and color, but can usually be substituted for one another. I couldn’t find any reference that mentioned specifically a certain type of onion that is better for hair growth than any other type of onion.

After applying the onion juice I am feeling more hair loss – should I stop applying the juice?

I believe you’ve lost hair during massaging the scalp. I don’t believe you’ve lost the hair because of applying the onion juice. Too much massaging, unlike gentle massage, may cause hair loss. Massaging the scalp should boost up the blood circulation and aid hair growth. I can only believe that the hair you lost was about to fall out anyway soon. We also lose normally about 100 strands everyday, sometimes less, sometimes more. Follow the onion juice application with a gentle massage for a few weeks to see if you notice any improvement. If you don’t see any improvement, discontinue with the treatment.


What are the side effects of onion juice on hair?

The most common side effects of applying the onion juice to your scalp are redness and itching. If you suffer from these side effects try to leave the onion juice for a shorter period of time. You can also try to make the onion juice less concentrated by mixing it with some castor oil which can also help to regrow hair.

Does onion juice work for dandruff?

I don’t know if onion juice works for dandruff. For dandruff have a look at my article: 6 Effective Ways to Treat Dandruff Naturally.

Can I store the onion juice in a refrigerator and apply it to the hair after some days?

I recommend to use fresh onion juice to encourage hair growth. Some of the nutrients in the onion juice that help with the hair regrowth can get damaged after a few hours so it’s best to use fresh juice.

How to Make Onion Juice (Taste Better)

  • Make sure you choose onions that have a firm feel when you give them a gentle squeeze. Remember to check for soft spots as well. Keep clear from onions that smell a bit off and have a squishy texture. Those are rotten.
  • The smaller the onion is, the stronger its flavor will be.  Moreover, onions with darker colors also tend to taste sharper than their lighter counterparts. The best tasting onions are the large, Spanish onions since they’re sweeter and won’t influence your juices (as much).
  • So…onion juice can come on a bit strong for most people. Unless you’re really, really into hardcore flavors (or a bit of a tastebud masochist), I highly recommend starting off in small doses and mixing the raw onion with plenty of flavor-diluting water-y fruits and veggies like celery, cucumber, and watermelon as well as sweeter notes like apple, carrot and orange.
  • Last tip: Sweet peppers add a lot of sweet, watery juice and go well with onions. Oh, and pineapple is great for masking harsher flavors, including that of onions.

How to Use Onion Juice for Hair Growth?

Although most people consume vegetable juice for its many health benefits, you should topically apply onion juice for hair growth, as this is a more direct way of delivering the nutrients to the areas of your body that need it most.

  • Step 1 – Massage the onion juice into the scalp and any bald patches that may be appearing.
  • Step 2 – Leave the onion juice in your hair for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 3 – Wash out the onion juice with warm water and a mild shampoo.
  • Step 4 – Repeat this process daily for best results.

Note: You may add honey to the onion juice to increase its efficacy and further enrich your hair follicles.
