Onion Juice and Hair Fall Treatment

99% of hair loss treatment don't work at all. Hair loss treatment is a complete industry working side-by-side with medical industry. This industry is worth 4 billion dollar. It is a large amount and growing continuously. Stress level is increasing day by day and  nutrition level is decreasing which is causing more hair fall and thus more demand for treatment. Different people have different reasons for hair fall ranging from heredity to some particular skin disease. But fun fact is that commercial advertisements offer the same remedy for all of them without diagnosing the problem. It is the reason that 99% of the treatment don't work at all and people spend more and more money on different products with the hope of getting their hair back.

There is a myth popular among the bald that hair once lost can't get back, however the remaining hairs can be saved with correct treatment. This myth made millions of people around the world go for hair transplant which has its own risks. Such myth can only give profit to hair transplant industry. The truth is that if the hair loss is due to lack of some particular nutrient then availability of that nutrient can make those hair grow again. If it is due to some skin disease the treatment of that disease can help you in getting your hair back.

What causes hair loss ?
The factors listed below are the major reason behind hair loss.

  • Heredity
  • Hormones
  • Stress
  • Poor diet/missing nutrients
  • Chemical hair styling services
  • Certain medications
  • Surgery or high temperature

Most of the people suffer hair loss due to a combination of these factors. Most common of them is stress. When stress combines with lack of nutrients then hair fall occurs at a high pace.

While doing research for the hair fall treatment we found an interesting fact that some people use onion juice to treat it. The usage is onion juice is still under research but we found some interesting facts worth sharing.

Onion Juice and Hair Fall Treatment

  • Sulphur is a main nutrient in Onion, which plays a major role in production of keratin, a protein found in hair.
  • Onion Juice can check the scalp infections (if any) and also promotes hair growth.
  • Methylsulfonylmethane is a form of sulphur which is highly absorbable and found abundantly in Onion.
  • Onion juice can be used with allopathic medication.
  • Onion juice on scalp can also fight with lice and dandruff as onion is a natural antiseptic and antibiotic.

How to apply Onion Juice on Scalp

Extract the juice of onion by using a juicer, mixer or grinder. Apply it thrice a week for 20-40 minutes on the scalp before taking a bath. If you find the smell of onion a little irritating then you may mix honey and powdered fenugreek seed and keep it overnight before applying on scalp. Olive oil can also be mixed in it before application.
Note: Aspirin,  NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and beta blockers can increase sensitivity to onions. So if you are using such medication then consult your physician.

Those who oppose the usage of Onion Juice to treat hair fall have got following points.

  • Onions can be quite caustic to the skin.
  • Side effects may include redness and itching of skin.

Final thought: Using onion juice to treat hair fall is usually safe if you are not allergic to onion. But the actual result is under research. There is no harm in treating yourself by using this low cost treatment. After all it is safe and affordable. Even if there is a little chance to get your hair back using a few kilograms of onions then it is better to wait before spending a fortune on hair transplant.

Hair Loss Advertisement, Truth of stopping the hair fall

Hair Fall  is the oldest and most common problem than men and women face after entering 30s. A lot of researches have been done about this thing. Primary motive of all of these hall fall researches is to stop hair fall. Every research want to advertise a product as a solution to hair fall. That product may be a medicine, an oil, a shampoo or a diet supplement. Sometimes when i think about it, i find that the actual motive of these researches is not to stop hair fall, its main objective is to promote a product.

Hair Loss Advertisement

Whenever you watch a hair loss advertisement of a hair oil, shampoo or conditioner, you will definitely hear a statement regarding a research that shows this... a research that shows that...... Isn't it rubbish. These researches are funded by the company which is launching a product. They ask the researchers to take the research to a result that shows that their product works or its better than others. You already have a conclusion in your hand and you have to just prove it. Here you can't prove anything else because either the research lab is owned by product itself or its funded by product making company.

Truth of Hair Fall Treatment

Hence the truth is that we are living in an era of advertisement where advertisers know how to play with the mind of viewers. Viewers hear whats on TV, viewer watches whats on TV, and then viewer buy whats on TV. The better the advertisement the better the sale. Hair fall treatment is one of the most desired treatment now a days. A Research statement makes the product more promising. The viewer or the end-user thinks that the research must be true and these doctors must be telling truth. They don't know that in most of these ads the doctor is just a model with good hairs who is getting paid by the advertiser.

Does these Hair Fall Treatment Products Work ?

I am not against these hair fall treatment products. But most of them don't work. Some times they work but thats too due to the psychological effect. Real problem that leads to hair fall is stress, and sometimes the falling hair itself becomes stress. If the hair is falling due to dandruff then the shampoo or oil might help but if the stress is the main reason behind hair fall then it may not. No hair oil or shampoo can remove stress.
