According to Ayurveda, any disturbances in agni, dhatus or doshas can affect the health of hair. Nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, thyroid imbalances, sudden weight loss, inflammation, scalp infections, certain drugs, stress and parasites may contribute to excessive hair fall. 

Hair loss has been also linked to the absence of sulfur in the scalp. Sulfur is found in keratin which is one of the components of hair. It strengthens your hair, stimulates hair growth and regenerates hair follicles. 
Onion contains high levels of sulfur and biotin. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and prevents hair infections and dandruff. 

This has been a proven remedy to promote the growth of hair. In 2002 researchers found that 87 percent of participants experienced hair growth after applying onion juice on scalp for 6 weeks.

How To Make Onion Juice:

- Peel 1 or 2 onions. Extract the juice out of them using juicer.

- If you are using blender chop the onions into small pieces, blend into a paste, place the paste in cheesecloth and squeeze the juice out.

- If you don't own juicer, blender or food processor you can also grate the onions and then squeeze the juice out with you hands.

- You can mix few drops of essential oil (e.g. lavender, sandalwood, rosemary) with castor oil and add it to onion juice to remove the strong smell of onion. Just make sure your essential oils are pure, GMO free and with USDA certified organic label. 

- Apply the juice on the scalp with cotton ball and gently massage it for 15 minutes.
- Wait at least one hour to wash your hair with mild shampoo.

- After drying, apply small amount of amla oil to the ends of your hair. 

Do this treatment 2 times per week for 3 months. Avoid it if you are allergic to onions.
