Does applying onion juice help in getting rid of baldness ?

Applying Onion juice on female pattern baldness?? Can I do so? Hello! My age is 21 and I have less hairs on central part of my head . hair everywhere else is fine. It seems to be female pattern baldness (but its my guess only). I started losing hairs when I was 15. I have no hairfall now, since years, but hair doesn t get thick on the central scalp though I have many small hairs which doesn t grow. I want to try onion juice to get thick hairs. IF I APPLY ONION JUICE WILL/CAN IT CAUSE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?? FAMILY HISTORY- ---My dad,his brothers and his father have male baldness. All of them have lost hairs on central part excluding the hairline in their mid 30s-40s. --- I have 2 brothers and one of them started losing hairs when he was 20 (the same pattern as my dad had). But my 2nd brother has thick hairs ---My mother had exceptionally thick hairs. ---My maternal grandfather s sister had become TOTALLY BALD when she got old! ---My maternal and paternal grandmother s have thick hairs too. ---My father s sisters have good hairs too.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You are probably suffering from Familial androgenic alopaecia. You need to apply proper medication on your hair under medical supervision like Minoxidil 2% which works best in bringing about thick hairgrowth. Kindly consult your Dermatologist about this and other options like hair transplant if necessary.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

Your History suggests you have Alopecia Areata. There is nothing called Female Pattern Baldness. Kindly get yourself examined by a Dermatologist first so that he/she can examine you and Prescribe proper medications. Applying Crude Onion Juice is known to the affected areas of the scalp is known to show very good results. You should be applying it twice daily for two months.

Eat protein rich foods like Eggs, chicken, fish, milk, Green leafy vegetables and avoid stress. Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
