Many of you must have heard of using onion juice for treating hair loss. It is an age old remedy that is backed by research now, I always feel very happy when I come across researches that prove our traditional remedies. Onion is rich in sulfur and it also the ingredient that gives onion it’s strong pungent smell. The type of sulfur found in onions is easily absorbed in the scalp and sulfur helps in the formation of keratin which in turn helps in hair regrowth. Here are some of the hair benefits of onion juice: 1. Onion Juice For Spot Baldness | Alopecia Areata: Using onion juice on scalp is a remedy that is very very popular in our village for treating alopecia areata or bald spots, we call it “Pulu Vettu | Poochi Vettu” in Tamil. Usually we use only small red onion juice for treating alopecia areata, the remedy gives amazing results very quickly, you can read the research that proves this traditional use here. I would suggest using the onion juice continuously for at least 6 to 8 weeks to see results. 2. Onion Juice For Grey Hair: Onion juice can be used for reversing premature greying of the hair very effectively. Oxidative stress is said to be one of the main reasons for causing premature greying. Onion juice when applied on the hair topically helps in the formation of catalase which in turn prevents oxidative stress very effectively. 3. Onion Juice For Scalp Infections: Onion juice has anti bacterial properties which helps treat all the scalp infections very very effectively 4. Onion Juice For Hair Growth: Applying onion juice on the scalp also improves the circulation in the scalp which in turn will help in hair growth. Though onion juice has these wonderful benefits when applied on the scalp, onion juice really stinks and like with every remedy some tolerate it well and some might find it very hard to apply on the scalp. For them I have given different ways to apply onion juice on the scalp below in the order of effectiveness, choose the method that you prefer…..
