With that being said, there are a number of home remedies that works very well to mitigate against hair loss while providing an environment that promotes hair growth.

I should preface this section by saying that no amount of remedies or potions can help you if you do not 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 that you are getting adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals such as biotin, zinc, and vitamin B’s.
Now let’s take about 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 that swears by this remedy. If you search on YouTube for “onion juice for hair“, you’ll find quite a number of videos showing before and after results of massive hair growth.
But why does onion juice help with hair growth?
There are a few reasons why onion juice can provide you with amazing hair growth results. Firstly, it is rich in dietary sulfur which is a key ingredient in the optimal production of proteins and enzymes.
This means that onion juice plays an important role in the development of new hair strands since the protein keratin is made from sulfur which onion juice provides.
Secondly, onion juice is a rich source of antioxidants. So by adding it to your scalp, it helps to protect your hair from free radical damage which could otherwise cause hair loss.
