Hi Everyone! Welcome back to the channel!
Iin today’s video I’m going to show you how Onion Juice and Rice Water can help to nourish your scalp and speed up your hair growth. This video is for everyone, but the tips I’m going to share could be particularly useful for men who’ve started experiencing thinning hair due to male pattern baldness, And anyone with Alopecia!
How Onion Juice may fight Male Pattern Baldness!
Male pattern baldness is down to a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone, which in genetically predisposed guys, attaches itself to hair follicles and shrinks them in a process of called Miniaturisation.
Onion juice won’t reduce the levels of DHT found in the body, it can help to reduce the amount of DHT found on the scalp, reduce inflammation of the hair follicles, and reverse the effects of miniaturization of the hair follicles.
Card: How Onion Juice may treat Alopecia!
And if you, or anyone you know has Alopecia, then this is for you -
More research is needed in humans, but animal studies show that topically applied Onion Juice can be effective in encouraging hair growth and topical lotions of onion juice are recommended.
In this 2002 study ( Journal of Dermatology ) 38 people were split into two groups.
The first group applied onion juice to their scalp twice per day for two months.
And Group two applied tap water to their scalp.
By week 6, 87% of the group who’d been applying onion juice to their scalps, noticed observable hair re-growth, compared with only two people in the group applying tap water to their scalp.
So Onion Juice, can be really useful in the fight against hair loss
I go into a lot of detail about the various nutrients in Onions that help to encourage hair growth so do feel free to check it - the link’s in the description,
But one of the most important ingredients in Onion Juice that helps to fight hair loss is Sulphur.
Human hair is made of a protein called Keratin which is high in Sulphur.
Sulphur gives healthy hair its strength and elasticity; but if you don’t have enough sulphur in your hair, it leads to brittle hair that can break easily.
Hair goes through three phases,
Sulphur helps to extend the growth phase, ensuring that hair is longer and healthier throughout the cycle, reducing the appearance of thinning hair.
I love using Onion Juice, in the previous video, I like to add essential oils to it, and I also use a leave in conditioner afterwards.

There is a village in China called Huangluo. The Yao women of this village are famous for having hair that reaches 6 feet long, as well as the length - look at the colour - their hair doesn’t go grey - and it won’t even start to go gray until they reach their 80’s : https://www.alamy.com/long-haired-yao-minority-women-in-the-rice-terrace-fields-ping-an-image9772178.html
Now, the rice water trend is spreading.
What is so good about rice water?
Rice grains contain 75–80 percent starch.
Rice water is the starchy water that remains after soaking or cooking rice.
Rice water is thought to contain many of the vitamins and minerals contained in rice. These include:
- amino acids
- B vitamins
- vitamin E
So this is how I prepare the rice water -
You can use plain white or brown rice, organic or regular,
The most important thing is to wash the rice water thoroughly, get rid of all the impurities.
Then I add one tablespoon rice to one cup of water. Add more if you’ve got long hair,
Now I put in my beloved lemon oil, lavender oil
Put it in a jar with a lid,
Leave for 24 hours overnight
So I take my onion juice and pour that into a bowl,
Then I take my fermented ricewater and pour that in a bowl.
So the process is, I’m going to wash my hair as normal, massage the onion juice and rice water to my hair,
Leave it in for 60 minutes
Wash it out with a sulphate free shampoo
Rinse, apply conditioner, style as desired
So there you have it, those are my three favourite onion juice recipes!
