Onion juice is a well-known remedy for hair health, specifically for hair loss. And from ancient times onion has many medicinal benefits because of the nutrients like vitamins, minerals, sulfuric compounds and many other.
In a small study published in the Journal of Dermatology, researchers indicated that applying onion juice to the scalp might help to regrow hair in some people.
But it doesn’t show the benefits to all people and also not provide any strong evidence to support the benefits of onion juice.
As it also not a cure for hair loss conditions like alopecia or patterned baldness.
Study support that it stimulate and protect the current hair and there is no proven result that it will surely help to reserve the hair loss.
As hair loss is very common and may involve bald patches, complete baldness or gradual thinning.
