The Miracle Hair Oil – A Tried and Tested Recipe

Disclaimer: All views and methods expressed here are my own. Please follow them at your own discretion. I shall not be held responsible for the results they may show on you, whatever they may be.

When my friend, Ensiya Kothari, shared the ingredients of this Hair Oil , which I have named the Miracle Hair Oil , with me I thought she was joking!

Then I saw she was serious and had shared her tried and tested  recipe after I remarked on the change I noticed in her hair. It was fuller, looked glossy and the length had increased considerably as well. Ensiya loves taking care of herself using natural products, and is always reading up and using things she rustles up in the kitchen, so it was safe to say that her recipe had got me curious, and how!

So the first thing I did as soon as I got home was assembled the ingredients for the Oil. Luckily I had everything on hand, even a brand new ½ litre Coconut Oil bottle.

The paste took me 5 minutes to make and boiling that with the oil took another 15 minutes. So in 20 minutes I had the oil in my kadhai. I left it overnight and strained it the next day, and it was ready to use.

I have been using the Hair Oil since February, I have used it once a week, though ideally twice a week works better, and I am beginning to see these results;

Hair fall has reduced by a LOT more than half

Hair has become darker and glossier

Hair has become smoother

I see new hair growth sprouting in places where my scalp used to be visible

The Oil, when applied, relaxes me and I sleep better

A noticeable reduction in the frizziness of hair as well

Dr Amrita Basu, an ENT Surgeon made and used this hair oil and shares more tips about Hair Care here


So after reading all of the above you surely want to know how to make this Miracle Hair Oil yourself, right?

Here is the recipe, with pictures.

Ingredients :
1/2 Litre pure Coconut Oil ( Organic Oil works best but you could use Parachute Coconut Oil too)
1 medium sized Onion (regular Red Onion/Kanda/Pyaaz)
5 Sambhar Onions (available as Red Shallots is you’re living outside India)
5 medium sized cloves of Garlic
Leaves from 10 Stems of Kadipatta (Curry Leaves)
1 heaped Tbsp Methi Dana
(Soak methi seeds for 4-5 hours.  Drain the water post soaking)
Chop the onions and garlic and roughly rip the curry leaves.
Mix everything , EXCEPT Oil, and grind it to a fine paste.
In a Kadhai ( I used a cast iron Kadhai but you could use a regular one ) first add the Oil and then add the paste to it and mix well.
Switch on the flame and stir as you let the oil come to a boil with the paste in it.
Lower the flame to a simmer and let it cook till the onion/garlic/kadipatta mixture darkens, as shown in the picture below (it took me 10-15 minutes)
P:S: Concentrate on the mix which should darken. The Oil DOES NOT turn black.
Switch off the flame, cover and keep aside overnight.
Strain and use.
You need to store it in a cool, dark place away from sunlight. Mix well before each application.
You could store it in a glass container or a plastic one, it does not matter. I store mine in a plastic bottle.

I used Pure & Sure organic Coconut Oil to make my 2nd batch of this Miracle Oil. Get it here;

    Good one Mayuri. Is sambar onion mandatory? Can we replace them with normal onions?

      March 24, 2017 at 4:58 pm

      Ramya, neither my friend nor me have tried replacing the Sambhar Onions with regular Onions, so I really can’t say. Apologies, wish i could help you out.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe with me. My first thoughts were the same – chutney mix! Once it was made, I was smelling food thoughts the whole day as it smelt divine then. Once applied to the head; the smell gets nauseating – so yes essential oil is a must (Thank you for helping me search the EO that day)
    I have used it 3-4 times and my hairfall had a remarkable change since first application only. Now hair only comes out the day I massage my hair.
    Earlier I was waking up with hair on my pillow, drains clogged after a bath/hairwash and hair on my clothes too!
    My hairdresser commented on my hair looking really fuller when I went for a haircut recently!
    Thank you so much for this oilt recipe.
    I will make more in a few weeks; probably minus the sambhar onions as we dont get them in delhi – havent seen them here!

    My mom advised our milkman back in 1996 to apply sambar onion paste…he was going to get married and worried about his receding hairline. It worked wonders for him and in three months the difference was remarkable. I’m thinking of giving this a go. Hugs Mayuri…Your hair always looks fab to me

      I had have experienced the pearl onions ( Sambar onion) miracle myself. I had lost a Small portion hair (more like a lemon size portion) when I was in my 9th grade and rubbing these small onions everyday for a month or so re-grew my hair in that area.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu


        April 19, 2017 at 3:17 pm

        Hey Sree, How long you use to apply the sambhar onion , also do we need to do head wash after applying the same ?

  13. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 25, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    I have t try this for myself and both my girls. Not going to tell them the ingredients as I am sure they r going to run away if they come to know about onion in it. Thanks Mayuri for sharing this wonderful oil recipe. 🙂

    March 26, 2017 at 11:38 am

    I loved the recipe .Though the onion garlic thingy is more for my mutton recipes than hair .That’s what hubby said. But even he noticed the hair looking glossier and fuller.Plus the maid stopped complaining about hair being everywhere .

    Mayuri, I have been using this oil for past one month on your insistence and I am so happy I listened to you. It has worked wonders for the postpartum hair fall mess. My hair holds straight and silky even without a conditioner. I can’t thank you enough for this. I have not brushed my hair in an entire day but still my hair is straight and tangle free. I love it.

    Thanks for this recipe Mayuri. Hair fall is always my number one concern. And I am too scared to try anything which is not natural with the fear I may lose the rest. Should try ur natural recipe and I hope to see some good results.

    March 27, 2017 at 7:49 pm

    Hi Mayuri,
    Thank you for sharing the recpie. Couple of questions:
    1. Are sambhar onions the small onions we get in grocery stores? I am in US. Please let me now.
    2. What do you mean by pure coconut oil? Do you mean organic or any other will do?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 27, 2017 at 8:13 pm

      Hi Pallavi,
      1) Sambhar Onions are the small red Onions, yes. Called Shallots in the US.
      2) Organic Coconut Oil works best.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu


        March 27, 2017 at 9:40 pm

        Does this work for men hair as well ?

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 27, 2017 at 8:31 pm

    March 27, 2017 at 9:31 pm

    Did you also add soaked methi seeds with onion, garlic, curry leaves in the grinder?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 27, 2017 at 9:44 pm

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 28, 2017 at 7:34 am

      Please follow the recipe as it is. I have no idea about Olive and Castor Oils, Ramya.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 28, 2017 at 8:23 am

      I did not use any Essential Oil. My friend used Rosemary, 1-2 drops in each application.

  29. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 28, 2017 at 11:07 am

    I am planning to make this. The big onion, is it a red onion or a yellow onion? I live in the US and it is not obvious from the picture. Thank you

    March 28, 2017 at 1:05 pm

    Hello – my biggest concern is my 10 year having a few grey strands. Will this oil help with that as well?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 28, 2017 at 1:16 pm

      Radhika, the only way to find out is by trying. To be honest, I did not keep a check for the grey hair. My only concern was the dry texture and severe hair fall and i have seen a huge difference in both.

  31. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 28, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Mayo this Sounds great but for that oniony -garlic smell.. but what the heck.. I am going to definitely try it if it helps me reduce the tremendous hair fall.. !
    can I reduce the quantity to half for a one time trial ?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 28, 2017 at 2:44 pm

      When you see the results you won’t mind the smell, Sonal!Really! Sure, make a small batch reducing the quantity by half and give it a go.

  32. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 28, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    Hi Mayuri,
    Does it help in regrow of hair to reduce the hairline apart from reducing the hair fall, or that is a irreversible process. Does it helped you completely stop the hair fall.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 28, 2017 at 2:42 pm

      Hi Shubs,
      Yes, my hair is regrowing, where scanty patches used to be.Noticed the difference around the hairline first. I have been using it once a week, since Feb, and I have seen a huge difference in the hairfall. Ideally, using it twice a week would help even better.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu

    Haha chutney you said and I too imagined the same after going through the ingredients. But methi seeds, coconut oil and curry leaves can really do wonders although i had never heard of onion or garlic for hair. Will give it try for sure. My hair fall is too bad since it’s seventh month post delivery. Hope this oil can fix it. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 29, 2017 at 4:37 pm

      I don’t have dandruff, so wouldn’t know, Jaya. However this oil has helped me immensely with hair fall and split ends. Do try it:)

  37. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 30, 2017 at 12:00 am

    As the weather is going to be too hot in coming days, will this stay if we keep outside as there would be many dark places in the house but cool would be a challange.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      March 30, 2017 at 9:15 am

      Hi Shelly, I made my Oil in winters too, so I have no idea about how it would react to the hot weather. I would suggest refrigerating it, and heating a little of the amount you plan to use each time.

  38. Mayuri Nidigallu


    March 31, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    I have a slightly silly question: The shallots I purchased from a local grocery store look slightly different from the ones that I see at Indian stores..Is that okay?

    So I finally made the oil. The ‘ masala’ after it turns brown is basically really well.fried onion and garlic if you must. The smell of the oil makes me dream of food !!!!
    I added a few drops of lavender oil, but the onion smell is too strong and overpowers all the other smell.
    Does it take a little to get used to it?
    I hope it works.
    Thanks! Will keep you posted

    Hi! I just made the concoction! Excited to try it. I’ll probably add some EO. My question is how long do you leave it on before washing it off? Thanks! And fingers crossed!

      Hi Anu, it’s mentioned in the post. Keep overnight for best results. Using it twice a week would be perfect 🙂

    Im already into coconut oil and have recently taken a decision against hair colour. I love anything weird and different so will definitely concoct this and apply it to my scalp.

    So this is the miracle recipe you told me about! A little concerned about the smell – but I have plenty of lemongrass oil at home that should take care of it.
    My grandma used to boil curry leaves and hibiscus in coconut oil. While I never tried it, she barely had any greys even in her 60s.

      Thanks for reading, Sreesha:) Lemongrass would be a great addition to disguise the smell.

    I did simmer the oil for about an hour but still the ingredients didn’t turn dark as i see in the picture you posted ? I thought it would turn dark after switching off the gas in the hot oil..Is it okay to repeat the oil to get the desired color ?

      An hour is too long , Deepa. My Oil turned this color in about 15 minutes.
      Check the masala, if it is dark brown it means you’re done. Sieve and use the hair oil.

        I did reheat the oil after 5 hours of keeping it covered.It was dark brown then and i added some jasmine drops to cover the smell. I applied it last night and the smell still lingers in my hair. I will let you know my results with the hair oil.

    Hi, had come across this post in a group. Made this oil, but it got burnt as I was reading the blog to store it. 🙁
    Will the slightly burnt oil be okay to be used or should made a new batch?

      I think you need to make a new batch. Also, keep stirring the mix , and keep your flame at the lowest.

    This sounds very nice Mayuri.! I’m definitely going to try it. i have been really troubled about my hair, trying different oils and shampoos and medicines and lotions! What not!
    From so many comments, I can see it has helped so many people. The only problem would be finding the red Sambhar onions.
    Thanks so much for sharing!!

      Thank you so much for updating me with the feedback, Madhavi. I started seeing new hair growth after 4 weeks of application. Hope you do too.

        Hey, I am using it from last 4 weeks, applied twice in a week. I can see hair fall has reduced, hoping to see hair growth as yours. Instead of keeping it overnight , I am keeping it for one hour and then wash it off. Do you think keeping it overnight would have been resulted better .

          One hour is way too little, Spoorthi. Overnight application is better.Try it.

    Hi Mayuri, Do you experience hair fall when you massage the scalp?

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu


        May 15, 2017 at 10:55 am

        Hey, I do see much more hair fall when I put oil and then wash compared to without oiling . Is it normal for you as well. How much hair fall in general you have when you apply oil and wash.

        1. Mayuri Nidigallu

          Mayuri Nidigallu

          May 15, 2017 at 9:11 pm

          Yes, I see hairfall when applying and then post wash as well. I would say 50 to 80 strands each time. But i see, and feel double the hair growth. I have been applying the Oil once a week , leaving it overnight, since February.

    Can I use dry curry leaves ? How much coconut oil should I use if I’m using cold pressed organic coconut oil?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu

      Mayuri Nidigallu

      May 25, 2017 at 9:43 pm

      If fresh curry leaves aren’t available then I guess dried ones will have to do. 500 ml of Coconut Oil, whichever one you use.
