The signs of hair loss can be different for men, women, and children. However, despite the age or sex of the person, hair collecting (more than usual) in the shower drain or their hairbrush is often a sign of hair loss.

For men, other signs of hair loss can be:

Receding hair line
Thinning hair on the scalp
A horseshoe pattern that may leave the scalp exposed
For women signs of hair loss can be:

Hair thinning (especially at the crown of the head)
For children and young adults:

Sudden loss of patches of hair
Full loss of hair on their body
Patched or incomplete hair loss on scalp or eyebrows
Abnormal shedding of hair following illnesses, anemia, stress, rapid weight loss, or drug treatments

Hair loss, also known as balding or alopecia affects millions of men each year If you’re in that crowd, it should come as no surprise to see a dozen or more products that claim they can help you regain a full head of hair.
The only problem is that these products often come with harsh chemicals that lead to side effects. Those that don’t are either too expensive or don’t work at all.
What if the solution you need isn’t found in expensive spas but on your kitchen counter? Believe it or not, there are numerous hair regrowth home remedies that could work wonders for you.

Some are outlandish and strange. Others seem weird at first but when you dig deep enough you’ll see they have natural chemicals that promote healthier hair.
Which ones should you try? Here are 7 of the weirdest hair regrowth remedies that may – or may not – work for you:

Onion juice

Onions are often talked about when it comes to ‘curing’ baldness because they are rich in sulphur, which promotes hair growth.

It has been said that rubbing onion juice on the scalp twice a week for two months can help bring dormant hair follicles back to life.

Yes, the everyday onion found in your kitchen is among the best hair regrowth home remedies you can find. Onions are cheap, available almost everywhere, and it’s likely you have one in your pantry right now.

But do they work?

Onions contain a high concentration of Methylsulfonylmethane, a source of sulfur compounds. This helps in the formation of keratin, the key component needed for hair growth. This compound also helps deal with hair loss conditions such as Alopecia Aereata.

Still not sold? The Journal of Dermatology published a study showcasing how several participants experienced noticeable hair growth only a few weeks after using onion juice twice a day. It is important to note there is a need for more research given that the study only involved a few participants.


Eggs can seem like a weird treatment for hair loss but keep in mind they contain a high concentration of protein and other nutrients. Human hair comprises of keratin protein and it doesn’t take too long to see the connection.

Protein isn’t the only positive factor from eggs. They are also rich in B-complex vitamins and biotin. Both are essentials to strengthen hair and promote healthier growth.

The best part is that using eggs isn’t as disgusting or strange as other hair regrowth home remedies. People use eggs as facial masks and skin lotion so the thought it helping with hair regrowth isn’t too out of place in the grand scheme of things.

Inversion Method
Sometimes, the best hair regrowth home remedies don’t require anything than shifting your position.

The inversion method involves hanging upside down to increase blood flow to the head. Better blood flow promotes stronger and healthier hair follicles, leading to potential hair growth.

In theory, this sounds like it could work. The unfortunate truth, however, is that there are no scientific studies to prove its worth. It could be nothing more than an old wives’ tale but it can’t hurt to give it a try.

Cayenne Pepper

This is not a remedy for people with sensitive skin. Cayenne pepper is a powerful and spicy stimulus that can cause irritation and rashes. If you’re into weird ideas, like awkward sex positions and strange foreign food, and if you can handle the strong effects then this might be what you’re looking for.

Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, like the inversion method, promotes better blood flow that helps hair follicles grow. Capsaicin also stimulates dead or dying hair follicles, which guarantees bald spots see hair growth after repeated application.

Even if you don’t see significant hair growth, cayenne pepper can promote shiny and thicker hair. The added volume may be the prime proof that this pepper can help remedy hair loss.

Apple Cider Vinegar

You’ll find apple cider vinegar in almost every home remedy list these days. From CBD products to dealing with dandruff, ACV appears as an end-all, be-all solution.

Ancient Romans used apple cider vinegar to treat dandruff and make hair shiny. To this day, it is widely believed that ACV can also treat hair loss or at least slow the process down by providing nutrients and promoting better blood flow to hair follicles.

There aren’t enough studies to prove how effective ACV is, as far as hair regrowth home remedies go, but it is great for removing product build-up on the scalp. These can include leftover gel, hair wax, and other hair products. This is how it works as a dandruff remedy.

If you’re looking for hair regrowth home remedies that can also fight off dandruff and make your hair shiny, this is the solution you’re looking for. Combining it with other remedies, such as eggs, may boost the hair growth effects.

Coconut Milk

Like many of the weird hair regrowth home remedies on this list, coconut milk works by promoting healthier hair follicles. The main difference is that coconut milk does see use in the industry. You’ll find numerous shampoo and conditioner products that advertise their use of coconut milk as a key ingredient.

Coconut milk helps remove sebum build-up in follicles. This build-up can block hair from growing and is a primary reason for slow hair growth and significant hair loss.

The benefits of coconut milk don’t stop with hair regrowth. It also helps untangle hair, combats dandruff, and it protects your hair from the harsh heat of the sun.

Craziest Hair Regrowth Home Remedies: Cow Urine and Bull Semen
Ever thought that a Google search for “my hair is falling out male” would lead to drinking cow urine and applying bull semen? No? Believe it or not but there is an urban legend of these two working to help deal with hair loss.

These hair regrowth home remedies don’t have any scientific studies to back them up, however, and no famous celebrity stepped up to claim it works. This method is popular in Agra, India, where Hindu followers state the urine must come from a virgin cow and you have to ingest the urine before sunrise.

There are many other great home remedies before throwing in the towel and giving this a try.

Stop a medication if necessary.

Some medications may cause hair loss. They are as below:

Blood thinners (anticoagulants)
Heart medications
Gout medications
Drugs to treat depression
Isotretinoin (Accutane), an acne treatment
Chemotherapy and radiation treatments
Medications used to treat high blood pressure

Don’t stop taking any medications straightway if you are suffering hair loss. Consult with your doctor first to see what other options are available. You may have to wait until treatment is complete. Once the treatment is done, your hair is more likely to regrow.

Reduce stress

Stress regularly takes a toll on your body and more specifically on your hair. Hair loss can be a direct result of leading a stressful lifestyle. You can follow these strategies to live stress-free:

Listening to music
Doing yoga
Regular exercise

Getting enough sleep

Be gentle with your hair

Hot oil treatments
Chemicals used in perms and hair straightening treatments
Bleaching your hair
Hot curling iron or straightening irons
Applying bleach or chemicals

Tight hairstyles, such as buns, pigtails braids, and cornrows

Get a checkup

Besides an individual’s genetics, some medical conditions may be responsible for hair loss, too.

Below are some of the conditions that may cause hair loss and should be treated with urgency:

• Syphilis
• Lupus
• Lichen planus
