No one wants to lose precious hair from the scalp. No one wants to go bald. But receding hair line is becoming a common problem these days mainly due to modern lifestyle, poor diet, environmental pollution, genetic factors etc. We then resort to artificial products and chemical treatments to save our hair or to generate new hair.

One such remedy is the use of onion juice for hair growth. This remedy may sound smelly and not very pleasant but it surely gives good results without any side effects. Onion juice has antimicrobial properties and hence prevents infections of the scalp and also helps fight dandruff and prevents hair loss due to infections. It has antioxidants like catalase which do not allow the hair to grow prematurely and onion juice is rich with sulfur which contributes in hair growth. Onion juice is also known to improve blood circulation to the scalp and help in hair growth. It is also believed that it prevents autoimmune diseases like alopecia areata which involves loss of hair in patches.
