  1. No need to add garlic juice..
    Raw onion juice is enough. You have to follow this remedy thrice a week for 2 months. Then only you can see effective results.

  2. I had severe hairloss, almost to the point that my parents and I were worried I might go completely bald (I’m 19). I decided to give this one remedy a try and it works! Like I was so surprised, but I’m happy. You’ll have to apply it twice a week for the best results, I usually add Garlic+Onion+Lemon juice+Honey to make it extra effective. Not only my hairloss got reduced, but also they became shiny and thick. I highly recommend this remedy, use it for 2 months if you don’t notice any significant change then go to a dermatologist.
    Edit (3rd Nov, 2019): it works, but it’s not a permanent and sole solution. You need to take care of your hair and keep using onion/Garlic juice. I’ve stopped using it because I’m very busy these days and hair fall is back. THIS IS NOT A PERMANENT SOLUTION, IF YOU ARE LOSING HAIR RAPIDLY THEN VISIT A DERMATOLOGIST.
    Edit 2 (14th DEC, 2019): So I decided to check a trustworthy Ayurvedic Doctor, because at this point I’m losing 50–100 hair daily. When I told the doctor about the remedy he said that is only for short-term relief, if doctors go around telling the remedies how are they gonna make profit? He gave me medications and told me to get my Serum VitD, Serum Calcium, Serum Iron, Cholesterol and Serum B12 tests done. He was right, my VitD was 8.3 (normal range should be 30–100). This sorted out my other problems as well. So one thing is for sure, the onion remedy isn’t that reliable.
    Edit 3 (22nd February): The treatment is working, haven’t seen results like this in years. My hairline came back and hair got thicker. The doctor assures better results once the treatment is over.
    Edit 4 (4th June 2020): Had to stop the treatment midway because of covid19, hadn’t seen any significant change yet. I would like to add DON’T DM ME, I’m not a doctor nor a dermatologist. I’ve had almost hundres of DMs on this answer asking me to suggest medicines and stuff:
    1) I cannot prescribe you anything, I’m not a doctor.
    2) the treatment which worked for me might not work for you
    3) read the answer again, I’m just sharing my experience. I don’t have any specific advise for you guys.
    Edit 5: (December 10th, 2020): My hairfall got worse than ever before, maybe it was because of covid. Even my parents faced extreme hairfall after getting diagnosed with covid 19, I recently started using Mama Earth products and it are surprisingly working, I never thought they would though. I would just suggest using products like that before going to any doctor.
    Edit 5: (March 6, 2021: So they only lowered the hairfall, not reversed it. One thing I would like yo mention is the dandruff that comes with those products.
    Edit 6: (Nov 19, 2021): probably the last edit cause there is nothing left to it, I stopped caring about the hair. Yeah there is still hair fall, but it’s moderate. I still believe applying onion + Garlic juice is a good remedy, it’s an irritant which will obviously stimulate your scalp. My hair is just kinda weird now, they used to stand upright and were really wavy and aesthetic but now they don’t. I would also like to mention take care of your hair while wearing helmets cause they damage them alot, get a good fit helmet. Try home made remedies or easily available products first before seeking professional help, cause hair fall is natural.

  3. Yes definately it can. I have been using onion juice from last 2 weeks, and new hairs start growing. I am using it on daily can see in the pic that new hairs started growing.

    Can onion and garlic juice be mixed together to regrow hair on bald patches?

  4. Hi!
    I’ve not tried this natural method yet. I will consider testing it to see what it does. Give me a little time to dig deeper. I can see slight validity to the method (tingling on scalp sending signals to increase blood flow) but have no experience. I would be concerned with where you are in the hair’s life cycle, are pores blocked because of overactive oil glands (leaving layers of waxy dandruff on the scalp), are hormones balanced, are we experiencing a pattern baldness based on genetics….
    There are many things to consider. The good new is it’s natural. The smell is of concern, my opinion though.
    Your Image Styling Advocate,

  5. I don’t think that onion and garlic will help you regrow your hair. If it works then why all are finding solution for growing hair. Maintaining proper diet, drinking plenty of water, applying coconut oil to your hair will make your hair grow healthier. Also avoid shampooing your hair everyday. This is not best for you.

  6. Yes. But I’d personally mix ready-made ginger oil with onion oil, apply them on my hair, leave for 2–3 hours then wash and condition as usual.
    If you do this 2–3 times per week, you shall have healthier hair and you shall also see baby hair on your bald patches. However, if you stop using these oils, or any essential oils in general, all the newly grown hair will fall. So, unfortunately, you should use these oils forever.
    But hey, at least you’ll grow new hair!!!

  7. Yes you can
    Onion is rich in sulfur and its one of the main building blocks of hair. It improves blood circulation and provides the hair follicles with sufficient nourishment. Onion also has anti-bacterial properties, so it helps with scalp infections that might contribute to hair loss.
    Instead of coconut oil I will suggest you to use castor oil.

  8. You can.
    It does stimulate hair growth. But idk how effective it is for MPB (male pattern baldness). If your MPB is hereditary, it won’t work.
    If you do try it, you’re gonna have one hello’va time trying to get rid of the stench!

  9. If you are facing heavy hair fall,then the mixture of ginger and onion juice may help. baldness is a hereditary problem. It comes from your parents’ side. there may be many reasons for bald patches in head. That may be for high blood sugar level,may be for liver problem etc.If you are suffering from these problem ,treat them first. Then the hair of bald patches will regrow automatically after successful treatment of these problem.

  10. The Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology published a study which shows that garlic can help fight hair loss, promote hair growth, and help prevent gray hair.
    Garlic contains essential elements including sulfur, copper, vitamin C, selenium, and minerals that are highly beneficial for hair growth. The copper in garlic promotes hair growth, thickens your hair, and intensifies hair color. To treat a deficiency of any of the above mentioned elements you can rely absolutely on wonderful, versatile garlic. source: How To Use Garlic For Hair Growth

  13. Although this has been described in home remedies, there is complete lack of clinical evidence of this being effective. The only sure way of treating bald patches is surgery (transplantation). If the patches are not too severe, you could try combing over it. Regular use of egg oil (eyova) massage will help arrest further loss of hair.

  14. Onion , garlic and ginger juice is a potent remedy for hair loss and for growing out hair on bald patches aswell as they’re rich in sulphur.
    But ill advise you to use them alone and not mix them together .
    Like onion juice for week days and garlic juice on weekends. Sole reason being it could cause allergy to sensitive scalps , because they’re too potent .
    Don’t rub too hard on scalp and you could mix juice in carrier oil and apply .
    Hope this helps

  15. Hello.. yes onion I’d good for regrowth of hair.. it should be apply in proper way.. also market have lots of products for hair regrowth. . Some of them are really good nd effective.. try mamaearth anti hair fall kit it’s good

  16. Can onion and garlic juice be mixed together to regrow hair on bald patches?

    My answer is not No at the beginning. It is quite true that onion juice nourishes the follicles, helps the growth of hair. It also improves blood circulation as a result prevents unnatural hair loss. As we know that there are 50/60 hair losses everyday which is quite natural. So there is no doubt about the usefulness of onion juice.
    On the other hand, Garlic also regrows hair if you have problems with fungus and yeast. It is used for treatment purpose. So if you don’t have fungus, garlic can cause you irritation of scalp. So you can use both on the circumstances.
    Side by side you have to remember that you don’t have digestion problem. You comb your head for at least 5/10 minutes before you sleep or 2 times a day. It will also increase the circulation of blood to help improve hair loss.

  17. Garlic is not just good for our body, but also for our hair. Garlic extract can remove and destroy harmful toxins and stimulate blood circulation, important in the scalp for proper hair care and growth and prevent hair loss. Addition of garlic extract in shampoo helps to keep hair strong, preventing breakage and hair loss, while adding significant body and shine. For those with dry hair or itchy scalps, the garlic extract shampoos also provide relief from the irritating symptoms.

  18. That’s a good question, Sanny! Now, you may be thinking of combining two potent oils to make it more effective. Well, thank your lucky stars because, yes, onion and garlic juice can be mixed together to regrow hair on bald patches. Onion juice has been shown to promote hair growth in several studies, and garlic juice has also been shown to have Hair growth-promoting properties. Onion juice and garlic juice have also long been used as home remedies for hair loss.
    Recent studies have shown that onion juice can promote hair growth by stimulating blood circulation to the scalp. It is thought that the sulfur-containing compounds in onions help improve collagen production, which strengthens the hair follicles. Garlic juice is also rich in sulfur and other nutrients like zinc and selenium, which are essential for healthy hair growth.
    When combined, these two juices can create a powerhouse solution for regrowing hair on bald patches. To make the mixture, simply combine equal parts of onion and garlic juice. Apply the mixture to the bald patch and leave it on for 30 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and shampoo as usual. Repeat this process three times a week for the best results.
    If you’re looking for a natural way to regrow hair on bald patches, try mixing onion and garlic juice together. This simple home remedy is effective in promoting hair growth.

  19. One way in which the garlic and onion hair loss remedies may work, is by providing nourishment topically to the hair follicles, especially if the nourishment of the hair follicles is being blocked by DHT or by bad diet.
    Another way in which the onion and garlic topical remedies may act to cure hair loss and baldness, is by killing some germs that may be infecting the scalp area.
    Yet another mode of action of garlic and onion on hair loss and baldness, is by killing parasites that may be infecting the scalp.
    Also, some fungi infections may respond to garlic and onions being applied directly to them, and that may help remedy some types of hair loss and baldness.

  20. No…that’s ridiculous. Hair grows from the follicles UNDER the scalp. Hair containes none of these items. You’re better off ingesting these,and a good diet.

  21. Yes definitely you can. My sister is using the same beauty tip and she said that her hair loss problem has been resolved to some extent. Don’t overdo it though. Use it after 15 or 10 days gap.

  22. I say that once an area is bald, there are no hair folicals to grow hair. Some oils moisturize your hair preventing “split” ends allowing hair to continue growing. Not sure I would want my head/hair smelling of onion garlic.

  23. Onion & garlic both are the excellent natural ingredients that helps to regrow hair, you can use them together but it will only give results when you avoid using hair styling tools and chemical contains hair products.

  24. Yes it actually stimulates hair follicles.
    You can make a paste of onion and apply it on your scalp.
    One more tip is you can use turmeric honey and little water and apply on your head to remove the bacteria which are result for hair loss .
    Apply baking powder and lemon to remove dandruff.
    And then apply minioxidal 5% on your head for hair growth
    And you can use shampoo named as ketanozol for more better results .

  25. You can. Amla oil has been known to help keep the scalp in good condition. Just know that nothing will actually make your hair grow faster than your genes have already programmed it to grow. All you can do is provide your body with the essentials for hair growth. This includes a healthy scalp. Oils are very good for hair and scalp, but make sure your hair will absorb the oil before you put it on. It won’t hurt to try, but if the oil is too heavy for your hair it’ll just sit there and provide little benefits. The most benefits you’ll get from this process is from the onions. The oil will moisturize and provide some shine as well.


  26. Reply
  27. I doubt it.
    If it were true, onions would cost $25 a pound.
    Also the television would be swarming with adds from attorneys urging you to sue if you rubbed onion juice on your head and felt a stinging sensation.

  28. I was unable to find any evidence to support whether Onion Juice, Garlic Juice (or the two mixed together) will regrow hair on bald patches.
    If these bald patches happened gradually over many months or years and are due to ‘normal’ hair loss that many of us experience, I’d be inclined to stick to using products that are proven to work – products such as Minoxidil, Finasteride, etc.
    If the bald patches are something you were born with or are the result of scarring from an accident or from a burn, this is probably something that can really only be fixed by a medical procedure such as a hair transplant.
    In saying all of this, if you do end up applying an acidic and/or fermented solution like Onion…

  29. Garlic and onion have been an age-old remedy for hair loss. The two ingredients strengthen hair follicles and prevent hair loss. Blend and strain 2 onions and 4-5 garlic cloves and extract the juice. Apply on hair and massage the scalp. It is possible to revive dead hair follicles in certain cases. … If the hair follicles are at an initial stage of damage, the growth phase of hair can come back. However, if it has been a long time since the hair follicles have been dormant or have died, there stands a rare chance of reviving them.

  30. Yes it does help, but you have to use it for a prolonged period of time to see significant results. As per your convenience apply onion paste two or three times a week, keep it for half an hour then wash it away with a mild shampoo.
    But please don’t just rely on this if you have severe hair fall or hair thinning, Follow these along with applying onion paste :
    Do headstand or shirshasana in the morning.
    Do balayam yoga morning and night.
    Make sure you are having a healthy diet.
    Quit smoking or alcohol if you do it.
    Make sure you oil your scalp regularly ideally with coconut or olive oil.
    6. Try to avoid stress as much as you can.
    And if the hair fall does not stop or reduce then please make sure you consult a good doctor as soon as you can.
    It is better to prevent and prepare than to repent and repair. 🙂

  31. Don’t worry about your hair you should apply mama earth onion hair care products it’s natural and organic it’s results are really good it’s control your hair fall and regrowth your hair must try it

  32. I had a condition called alopecia areata. This is a small round bald spot due to reasons other than male pattern baldness. I applied onion and garlic juice mornings and night for about 3 months and my hair completely grew back and I have no issues since. It has been 3 years. Don’t think it will work for male pattern baldness though.

  33. Onion juice is a age old remedy for hair that has recently being discussed a lot. The reason why onion juice is excellent for hair is due to high levels of sulphur that is needed in the hair protein structure. Garlic also has a high amount of antioxidants that make it ideal for heart disease prevention. It is a detoxifying agent.
    Mixing onion and garlic juice for hair is best when you are looking for a quick home remedy for damaged hair. The only problem with this hair pack is that both the ingredients have a strong smell that stays for long.
    How to use onion and garlic juice for hair growth?
    You need an onion and 3–4 cloves of garlic. Make a find paste without using any diluting fluid. Apply this paste gently on your hair and scalp. Don’t apply beyond half length of hair.
    Hair dandruff and other infections will no longer trouble you.
    You will feel that all your head ache and stress is gone.
    There is a natural shine and bounce in hair after this treatment.
    Your hair will heal and the damaged regions will not have any split ends.
    Hair volume will improve rapidly.
    After using the hair pack, wash with lukewarm water and apply lavender oil. This will counter the smell of onions if it stays at all.

  34. Sure!
    Both onion juice and Cocnit oil have been scientifically prove to increase hair growth.And combining them together is a great idea !

  35. Garlic is considered to be a miracle spice for hair loss, i have suffered a lot form hair loss and i had some empty patched in my scalp i was taking medical treatment but when i made some researches i figured out that i have to use something to emphasize the scalp for hair regrow and i found that the garlic is the best thing for that as it contains a sulfur compound that treats hair loss ,For me using the garlic straight forward to my hair wasn’t a good idea because it irritated my scalp and it keeps a bad smell that doesn’t fade away after washing so i used instead product that highly has garlic in it’s components and it worked amazingly
    This is the one that i used


  36. The thing you have to understand is that garlic is only going to be able to regrow your hair when it is damaged by funguse and yeast infections, however, if your hair loss problems are due to hormonal imbalance, then you will need other heavy treatments to make your hair grow again. Garlic is really amazing and will help re grow your hair dramatically only and only if the problems are related to funguses.

  37. Yeah you can add these two juices of Onion and Garlic, which is a good remedy for hair-grow. In addition you can mix neem juice, so that you will feel cool.
    So this could be a good combination,
    2 teaspoon Garlic Juice + 2 teaspoon Onion Juice + 1 teaspoon neem Juice + 500 ml of water

  38. To be honest you cannot grow your hair after 30 years of age but you can go for non surgical hair replacement to get your hair back for more details on non surgical hair replacement do watch this video

  39. No, speaking as a onetime hair care chemist. With one freakish and unlikely exception.
    If you are missing key nutrients needed to make keratin, such as sulfur, you will have similar issues in making many other proteins as well. In which case you have much, much more to worry about than a lousy head of hair.
    If you are eating a decent diet, your immune system is not sleeping on the job, and you maintain good health and hygiene(especially scalpwise) you are actually better off using those smelly juices , or even better, whole onion and garlic, in your food.
    It’s a common trope with “natural” remedies (a few of which DO work or at least help) that if they smell or taste strong/ bad a substance must be doing its job. Ain’t necessarily so.
    I’ll go with the evidence- based findings whether via natural means or from the mind of a mad scientist.

  40. In ancient Aayurveda book “ Ashtaanga Hrudayam” , it explains properties of garlic. That SLOKA says GARLIC IS GOOD FOR HAIR GROWTH.
    In sloka about ONION says , it have some similar health qualities like GARLIC but less than garlic.

  41. Why don’t you folks, especially men, accept hair loss and embrace it? Some men just shave their entire heads and look very sexy.
    And please don’t try to comb those few wisps of hair over the bald spot. You end up with a part halfway down the side of your head and it looks ridiculous.
    Another way to help turn attention away from a receding hairline is to simply get a pair of slightly tinted glasses (the golden or brown tones) and this will break up the expanse between your eyes and hairline.
    If this doesn’t work go get a hairpiece and spare us the horrific smell of garlic and onions on your head.

  42. Hi,
    The results differ from each individual. For some it might take several months for some the results can be seen soon. It all depends on each individual. Don’t lose hope and continue following the treatment and very soon you can see the change.


  43. “A natural hair loss remedy can be done with herbs, massage or natural diet methods. People doing these remedies with hopes that no side effect would appear. Garlic and onion can be used as alternatives of herbal hair loss remedy.

  44. I was reading about this online & amazed to read that yes, studies have shown that the sulfur in it promotes hair growth in 2-4 weeks. I would think though that younger men would get better results than older very bald men.

  45. Gosh, people and their stinky remedies. I don’t think any of that nonsense is helpful. Biotin supplements, eating good sources of protein, and avocados and bananas are helpful for the growth of healthy hair.
    My aunt recommends to brush one’s hair before sleep with head upside down. It’s to stimulate the scalp. I’ve noticed my hair grow quicker. The biotin also makes nails get stronger and grow as well.

  46. Yes with that do balayam yoga

  48. I had severe hair fall. After trying out lots of stuff, I decided to give “garlic juice” a try. I use it weekly once. I apply the juice & honey mixture, directly on scalp. Here is my honest feedback:
    1- Hair fall got reduced drastically.
    2- Hair diameter seems to have increased.
    3- However, my hair became very dry.

  49. No need to add garlic juice..
