Hair loss is caused by a host of factors and as such there is no one-size-fits-all solution. With that said, there are a number of home remedies that work very well to mitigate hair loss while providing an environment that promotes hair growth. This article will provide you with one of the best home remedies for hair growth and thickness.
I must start this section by saying that no amount of remedies or potions can help you if you don’t take the necessary steps to protect your hair from damage. This means that you should only use natural and chemical-free products, refrain from using hair dryers, curling irons, etc. and make sure you’re getting adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals like biotin, zinc, and vitamin B.
Now, let’s take a look at the natural home remedy that you can use to stop hair loss naturally and promote hair growth.
# 1 – onion juice
There are hundreds of Youtubers who swear by this remedy. If you search on YouTube “onion juice for hair“You will find a lot of videos showing the results of before and after massive hair growth.
But why does onion juice help hair growth?
There are a few reasons why onion juice can give you amazing hair growth results. First, it is rich in dietary sulfur, a key ingredient in optimal protein and enzyme production.
This means that onion juice plays an important role in the development of new hair strands, since the protein keratin is made from the sulfur that onion juice provides.
Second, onion juice is a rich source of antioxidants. So by adding it to your scalp, you help protect your hair from free radical damage that could otherwise cause hair loss.
Here’s how to use onion juice hair growth remedy:
You will need to:
- 1. A blender or grater
- 2. A gauze
- 3. Organic coconut oil
- 4. A glass jar or container with a lid.
Preparing the juice:
Step # 1 – Using a blender – Chop about 3 large onions and place the pieces in the blender. (If you have a nutribullet, this would work better.)
Add 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil to the onion chops in the blender then blend until you get a thick liquid.

Step 2 – Pour the mixture of onion juice and coconut oil into the cheesecloth over a bowl to strain and remove large debris.
Step 3 – You should now have a clean liquid that you need to put in a container with a lid (glass jar) that is good for up to two weeks.
