So let’s get straight into it, what is up with Onions and why should we be using it on your hair?


Onions are extremely rich in a mineral called Sulphur 

Sulphur is an essential mineral for healthy skin, nails, hair and joints.

And human hair is made up of a rough protein called keratin, which is really high in sulphur 


The sulphur in your hair helps to keep the hair strong and elastic; but when you don’t have enough sulphur in your diet or on the hair, it can lose its moisture and break easily.


Hair goes through three phases: So if you’re experiencing hair loss or thinning hair, it’s important that you’re thinking about how to extend the growing and resting phases or your hair. 


Let’s look at the phases - Anagen-



  • This stage typically lasts about 3 to 5 years.
  • During this phase, parts of the hair follicles start to collapse.
  • Your follicles are preparing themselves for the resting phase.
  • This lasts around 1-2 weeks.
  • Your hair rests
  • It usually lasts 3 to 4 months.
  • At the end of this period, older hairs that have finished their life will fall out and newer hairs will begin to grow.

Sulphur is great as it helps to extend the growth phase, ensuring that hair is longer and healthier throughout the cycle.

As sulphur is soo good for your hair - good idea to load up your daily diet with foods rich in sulphur - I’ll mention all the foods at the end -

Before getting started with our recipes, 

Warning 1

Don’t use any of these onion juice recipes if you’re allergic to onions!

Do a patch test first! Rub some of the raw onion directly onto your skin 

I  did it behind my ear, leave it for 24 hours - if you’ve not reacted then you’re good to go!

Also! I recommend doing this once per week - I wouldn’t advise doing this every single day as your scalp might become quite sensitive, especially as the other ingredients we’re adding to onion juice are really powerful.


So let’s get straight in with our first onion juice recipe.

For all of these recipes we’re going to be using the yellow onions, as these have the highest sulphur content.

Yellow onion juice recipes for hair growth

Onions also help to ensure healthy circulation at the scalp - so when blood is flowing to the scalp it brings amino acids, proteins vitamins, minerals and oxygen to your scalp. Onions also have anti-inflammatory properties that help to fight dandruff. 

In the kitchen!


If you’re using a huge yellow onion, you can store it in the freezer in an ice tray, but to be honest it’s  better to make it up freshly each time and the onion loses it’s potency.


 Onion Juice for Hair Growth

I’m chopping up my medium yellow onion.  Dont’ peel off the skin, just under the outbit - because this is really rich with lots of nutrients and antioxidants


Then I’m going to blend it.


Then strain it with a cheese cloth or muslin, or strainer.


Squeeze, Squeeze,Squeeze




Warning Number 2:


Voiceover: Straining out the juice is really, really important, do not skip this step and apply the pulp straight to your hair, do not do this! 


If you’ve got curly hair or afro hair, it will get stuck in your curls and will look like massive flakes of dandruff. Don’t skip the squeezing step! 

Next I add a couple of tea spoons of coconut oil.


I’m adding in a few drops of lavender oil: 


This 2016 study found that  lavender oil applied to mice made them grow more hair. Their hair also grew thicker and faster than normal.

Lavender oil, also smells absolutely beautiful - so it helps to mask the strong onion smell


If you’ve got an itchy scalp or dandruff, lavender oil helps to clear this thanks to its antifungal properties. 

I’m adding lemon oil - it cleanses and balances the PH of the scalp.

Lemon also helps stimulate circulation in the scalp for increased hair growth.


I’m also adding in a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil. 


The vitamins and fatty acids in coconut oil help to nourish your scalp and penetrates the cuticle of the hair.


I’m massaging my hair all over the scalp.


You can leave it in for about 30minutes to an hour and shampoo out as normal.  


Feel free to use a shower cap too.


Remember to use a sulphate and paraben free shampoo. I use Palmers coconut oil shampoo. I feel like I mention them in every single video - I’m not sponsored by them by the way- I just love it - and I hope they see this and give me a free bottle of  shampoo!

To boost circulation at the scalp, I know a lot people also do a home work out, while they’re waiting!


You can also leave the onion juice in overnight if you don’t think you’ll be too uncomfortable or smelly.


Now I wanna mention that even though I love adding my essential oils to my onion juice, they don’t completely mask or get rid of the smell, you can tell that the essential oils are really trying to work hard, but the onion juice smell is working harder, so just so if you’re okay with the smell, or you’re just not going to be seeing anyone important that day, then its okay,


But cos I’m often in meetings, to make sure my hair doesn’t smell of onions, I’ll use a leave in conditioner after washing my hair - 



You could completely cover your hair in coconut oil overnight - shampoo and rinse out.



And then I rinse it out the next day and don’t forget to use a heat protective spray - 

Blow dry


And im done!

Okay receipe number two!




For this recipe again you need one yellow onion,


Three or four garlic cloves,

Cayenne pepper  -

Just like onions, garlic is extremely high in sulphur, zinc and copper 

Zinc helps to stop excess testosterone from converting to DHT which is a hormone that attaches itself to hair follicies and minituarises them.


Copper peptides are known to increase the size of the hair follicles and so help stop hair thinning. 


Garlic is also well known for its beneficial impact on circulation and heart health. 

 garlic for hair growth

Studies suggest that garlic can increase tissue blood flow and lower blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels - and healthy circulation means all those good nutrients and minerals are getting to your scalp!


Garlic is also packed with antioxidants - which also make it great for heart health.


There’s  also a chemical in cayenne pepper called capsaicin irritates (and thus, stimulates) your hair follicles. 

This time I’m adding Peppermint oil.

That cold, tingling feeling that you get when apply Peppermint oil is actually the feeling of your circulation immediately increasing.

An increase in circulation can help promote hair growth during the anagen (or growing) phase.

This study found that peppermint oil, when used on mice, increased the number of follicles, follicle depth, and overall hair growth.

So you’ve got to mix 2 drops of peppermint essential oil with the carrier oil of your choice. 

I’m using Caster oil right now.

castor oil for hair growth

This study : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4387693/ found that Applying castor oil to the hair on a regular basis helps moisturise the hair shaft, increase elasticity whilst decreasing the chance of breakage.

So now you’ve got your chopped onions, garlic and cayenne pepper you can either blend or boil them - The blending technique takes less time to prep - but boiling means you can store your mixture - so I’ll show you both ways 

The Blending Technique

So we’ve chopped the onion and garlic up 

Next I’m blending and straining out the juice from the pulp

Then add the cayenne pepper mix, 

And you’re done - also don’t bother saving this mixture in the fridge - as the mixture looses it’s strength when it’s not fresh.

So if you’d like to save your mixture - it’s best to follow the boiling technique.

The Boiling Technique

So for the boil technique I usually have 4 or 5 onions and 3 or 4 garlic cloves.

Chop them up into small pieces and boil in a liter of water.

Once it’s done, put the mixture in a jug and cover it, allow it to cool for one or two hours and then mix in 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper.

Then put it into an application bottle, and it can be kept in the fridge for up to five days!



Be really careful - Do not Get this in your eyes - would absolutely burn your eyes - so please do be extremely careful -  it would just be beyond embarrassing going in to work the next day with sore red pepper eyes 

 This can be really messy - it goes on your face, on your clothes and I don’t wanna get it into my eyes, so what I advise is, get cotton wool pads out and just soak up the juice with the pad and put it directly to your scalp. 


So neat and fresh and umessy woo!
