Use of Onion to thicken hair works more or less in the same way as using garlic for the same reason. Onion juice rejuvinates hair follicles and boosts the scalp circulation, so it should likely help the re-growth of strong hair. Onions contain a quantity of important nutrients, like vitamins C and vitamin B6. Onions also contain calcium and magnesium, along with potassium and germanium. The onion is also high in sulphur, which is a mineral contained in every single cell in the human body.
Sulphur has its highest levels in the hair, the skin and in the nails, which is why it is known as the "beauty mineral".

Here is a recipe to try out.

Apply the onion juice to the top of the scalp and massage deep into the hair roots - but again, do gently, so as not to cause traction alopecia.
You will need to leave it onto the top of the scalp for around 30 minutes and then shampoo.


  1. This sounds a lot simpler. I think I can tolerate the onion rather than the garlic. :)

  2. Yeah, the onion remedy sounds easier and less complicated.

  3. Cool. Does is matter whether I use red or white onions? Vidalia onions. And, they always make me cry, so I'd best be prepared; or better yet, tie my hair down properly.

  4. Mama, I don't think the type of onion matters; red, white or even spring onions will work just as well.

  5. haiya onions. Interesting the things we have in the kitchens and how they have many uses. Can I use onions on non-dread hair? How do I get rid of the aftersmell?

  6. Shiko you can use it on unlocked hair and any other type of hair.
    As for the smell you could try Maua's recipe using thyme you can find it here on the garlic article (
