The Miracle Hair Oil – A Tried and Tested Recipe

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

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.

Requesting you to read the complete post carefully. I cannot answer the same questions again and again, even after writing such a detailed post. If you wish to add anything to the oil, do so at your own risk. I always use ONLY the ingredients I have mentioned here.

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! “Onions, garlic, curry leaves, are you kidding me? Are we making a chutney, or hair oil?” I laughed. Click To Tweet

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. Her hair 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 has up in her 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 assemble 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 well 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


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 ( ANY BRAND OF Organic Oil works best, but you could use Parachute Coconut Oil too)
1 medium sized Onion, peeled (regular Red Onion/Kanda/Pyaaz)
5 Sambhar Onions, peeled  (available as Red Shallots, if you’re living outside India. Yes you need them and no you cannot substitute them)
5 medium sized cloves of Garlic, peeled
Leaves from 10 Stems of Kadipatta (Curry Leaves) 
1 heaped Tbsp Fenugreek Seeds /Methi Dana
(Soak Methi seeds for 4-5 hours.  Drain the water post soaking, pat dry and use)
Chop the onions and garlic and roughly rip the curry leaves.
Add ALL the ingredients , EXCEPT the Coconut Oil, to a mixie and and grind it to a fine paste WITHOUT adding any water to it.
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.
P:S: After I poured the Oil  through a strainer I let the mixture sit in it for an hour, till  every drop of the oil had left the mixture . Strain the mixture as best as you can, using your hands or the back of a spoon to squeeze out the maximum amount of oil from it. Discard the mixture after you get out the oil. Do not use the mixture.
You need to store the prepared Oil 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.
If you live in a place that is hot and humid it is better to refrigerate the Oil, take out how much you need, thaw it/warm it and use it.
I have no idea about the shelf life of the oil as I use up whatever I make.
Both Men and Women can use this Hair Oil. You could use it on children at your own discretion.
The Oil DOES smell strange, so you could add a few drops of essential oil to a portion of it before applying. Click To TweetApply the Oil to your hair, leave it on overnight and shampoo the next day, twice a week, for best results.

This is the color the blended ingredients, Onion, Shallots, Garlic pods, Curry Leaves and Methi Seeds, should turn to after boiling in Oil. Mine took about 10-15 minutes of boiling to change color from green to brown.
This is what the boiled , left aside overnight , and sieved the next day, Oil looks like. I used a cast iron vessel to ‘cook’ my oil.

  1. Very interesting, Mayuri. Glad to hear that the hair oil is working well for you. Natural really does work better.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu supriya

        How frequently to use this oil?

        1. It would be great if you could use it twice a week, leaving it overnight. If not, once a week is good enough.

          1. Mayuri Nidigallu Riya

            Hey! I have a big forehead, and am very much concern about it. Will this oil help me in growing hairs on my forehead I mean the hairlines where I never ever had hairs. Plz reply

          2. Hi. No. It won’t grow hair where there wasn’t a growth earlier. You can get a good hair cut that covers your forehead.

      2. Mayuri Nidigallu Purnima

        Hey Mayuri,

        I have tried a mixture like this before but instead of using onion I have used castor oil, so was wondering if I can use onions with castor oil this time.

        1. You cannot use Castor Oil, Purnima. Only Coconut Oil to be used.

          1. Mayuri Nidigallu Neha

            Uses 1/2 quantity of coconut oil and 1/2 quantity of mustard oil ….

        2. Mayuri Nidigallu Megha

          Hey! It’s a wonderful recipe and I used sarso oil instead of coconut as it works better for my hair and added 25% non refined castor oil and few drops of rosemary to the ready oil…. it has added gloss to my hair and my hair are now frizz free even without using a conditioner after shampooing!! It’s a great recipe!!!

          Plus because of sarso my hair are now naturally healthy brown as I don’t like really black hair thank you for the recipe Mayuri!!

      3. Mayuri Nidigallu Akhila

        Hii.. which shampoo would u recommend after using this oil?? Does the type of shampoos alter the results??

        1. No, the Shampoo does not alter the results. I personally use Indulekha for the last 6 months. Used Baba Ramdev’s Milk Protien Shampoo before that.

  2. I always like to grow my hair. And your hair oil recipe looks like the perfect solution. I am gonna try it soon.

    1. Do try it, Geethica 🙂

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Riddhi

        Hey i made this oil…n i boiled it on low flame for 20 minutes…but that mixture didnt turn that brown as it shown in ur picture dear…Is it ok??

  3. Thank you, Mayuri! I really need a miracle for my hair…my hair is thinning too and I have a lot of hair fall…I have all ingredients right now at home, except the sambhar onions, so I’m going to do this first thing tmrw.

    1. I was at your stage, Shubhangi. this oil worked wonders, I hope it does the same for you too. Hugs.

  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe with your readers Mayuri, hair problem is something we all fallen prey to and if something as organic as this can save us from loosing lovely tresses why bother to pay heavy bills.

    1. Good things should always be shared , Dipika:) Hope it works for you too:)

      1. Is it mandatory tonuse sambhar onions? Can I increase the proportion of normal onion instead?

        1. Yes, Sambhar Onions are mandatory. However, if you can’t find them, use just one regular Onion, without increasing the quality.

  5. Mayuri, thank you so much for this recipe. I have been suffering from hair fall and greying since some time now and as time passes, I keep fearing baldness!
    I am definitely going to try it out as I too believe in using natural ingredients for skin and hair care . I will let you know the results after a month of using the oil. Till then keeping fingers crossed! 🙂 ♡♡♡

    1. You’re so welcome. Try this, Shilpa. Do share if it bought about a change.

    2. Mayuri Nidigallu Dipali

      hii…. any update about hair oil??

    3. Mayuri Nidigallu Nisha

      Did you try the miracle oil?? Did it work??

  6. Mayuri I have been at my wits end trying to solve hair fall problem both for me and my daughter. This oil recipe is quite simple. I’ll give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hope it works for you and your daughter, Kala. You’re welcome 🙂

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Aakanksha sharma

        For how much time can i store this ?

        1. As long as it stays fresh and doesn’t go rancid / smell stale / bad

          1. Mayuri Nidigallu Fareen

            Hii there….. I’m very much keen on trying all natural remedies to solve any problems related to health skin and hair….. That’s why I go through things with small details with caution… I NEED to ask you that isn’t boiling coconut oil alter the nutrients in it?? Plss answer me….. I have this question hanging in my head before I try this… I need to clear with the doubt!

          2. Hi Fareen. Thanks for dropping by my blog.
            We are using the Coconut Oil externally here, so we don’t need to worry about it retaining it’s nutritive properties. Boiling it with teh other ingrdients is an important step, a doing so leads the oil to absorb the properties of all other ingredients that go in it. Hope this helps.

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

    1. 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.

  8. This sounds weird. But I am sure it works. Most of the fancy-organic products we use are a packed versions of such age old concoctions.

    1. Sounded completely weird to me to, Saru, but the results wowed me!:)

  9. Onion and garlic too… Now that’s a very different solution… I wonder if I should try it… Maybe in small potion… Thanks for this

    1. Let me know if you do ,Raj. You could tried a blogpost on it, Urea format :)))))))))))))) You’re so welcome!:)

  10. 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!

    1. Love you for sharing this detailed feedback with me, Shalini. I am so glad it helped. As for the Sambhar Onions, I am sure you will get them in Delhi, online at least!:)

    2. Mayuri Nidigallu Swetha

      Hi Shalini,
      Have you tried the oil without sambar onions? How was the result?!

    3. Mayuri Nidigallu Rup

      Hi.. so did u make the oil again with or without sambar onions? Coz it’s difficult to get sambar onions where I stay. Thanks

    4. Mayuri Nidigallu Ankita Bhaumik

      You will get it at any South Indian store. I bought it from there.. Happy oiling

  11. Almost everyone has hair problems so this could be so much helpful. Have tried onion but not the combination

    1. Oh, you have no idea how much it has helped me, Manisha!:)

  12. 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

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu Sree

      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 Shivani

        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 Deepa

    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. 🙂

  14. 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 .

    1. Lolol! Yes, the ingredients could make a subzi ! They got me my hair back however!:)))

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Monika Luptakova

        Hello, I was wondering if this oil would work for blond hair as well. Won’t it color my hair dark?

        1. No. It won’t turn your hair dark, Monika. None of the ingredients have any coloring properties.

    2. Mayuri Nidigallu Aditi

      Hey, saw the pic that you have posted. Which coconut oil did you use ? How many times did you apply the oil in a month. Twice or once in a week ? Thanks in advance 🙂

      1. Aditi, I used The coconut oiL that is in the pic Coco Guru
        I apply it once a week, twice a week is ideal though.

  15. 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.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience, Tina. I am so glad it would for you!

    2. Mayuri Nidigallu Ruchika

      Hi Tina and Mayuri ..
      Today I have made this oil however the oil mixture turned dark ..my fault I got busy in something..Do you think it will still work for me..??Worried as lot of hard work went in making it ..

      1. Hi Ruchika,
        As long as the mixture didn’t get burnt the color of the oil doesn’t matter. If it smells burnt I would suggest not using it.

  16. 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.

    1. I hope you’ve tried it , Janani. Let me know if it worked for you, if you have.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu kirti agarwal

        hi Mayuri
        I made the oil..n cooked it untill the froth ( ghaag) stopped forming…so the ingredients turned to almost black in colour…is it usable…

        1. Hi Kirti,
          You need not have waited so long. You only have to wait, and stir as you do, till the mixture starts changing color from bright green to brown.

          If the oil smells burnt, you shouldn’t use it.

  17. Mayuri Nidigallu Reshmi

    I have used oil boiled with kadipatta and methi. It worked well for me and my family. Am sure this recipe will work too… Thanks for the recipe..

  18. Mayuri Nidigallu Pallavi

    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. 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 Karthik

        Does this work for men hair as well ?

        1. Yes, Kartik. My Husband uses it as well and has seen a difference too.

  19. Mayuri Nidigallu Pallavi

    Which essential oil we have to use? Any particular brand? I had a baby four months back.. I am experiencing severe hair fall.. Hope this works like a wonder for me

    1. Whatever brand and fragrance you like. It has helped my friend with her postpartum hair fall issues. I hope it helps you too, Pallavi.

  20. Mayuri Nidigallu Prapti

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

    1. Yes, Prapti. I have specified that you need to grind ALL ingredients together EXCEPT the Oil.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Prapti

        Thanks! Got little confuse so thought to confirm with you 🙂

  21. Mayuri Nidigallu Manu

    Hi mayuri…..am planning to try this oil….have been having hair loss for many years……but can i add dried fresh henna leaves instead of essential oil……

    1. Hi Manu, please use only the ingredients mentioned. Essential oil is optional but you cannot add fresh henna leaves.

  22. Mayuri Nidigallu Valar

    Thank you Mayuri….Just wanted to know what shampoo and conditioner you use ??

    1. Hi Valar, I alternate between using Patanjali Milk Protein Shampoo and Conditioner and Moroccan oil Shampoo and Conditioner (for dry hair)

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Savitha

        Where do you buy these shampoos?
        Which store?
        Because I like try these shampoos too, thanks for sharing.

        1. Hi Savitha, I buy the Patanjali shampoo online. And the Morrocan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner from my Salon, who are certified dealers of the same.

      2. Mayuri Nidigallu Pav

        Hi Mayuri,

        Thanks for posting! I tried the recipe with same measurements and stored the oil in dark at room temperature; however it somehow had fungus in it after 2 weeks.

        1. That is very strange, Pavneet. i made my last batch in February, still using it and it’s fine.

  23. Mayuri Nidigallu Sruj

    Can we use this for 2 year olds too?

    1. I am not too sure, Sruj.

  24. Mayuri Nidigallu Shilpa

    Hi Mayuri,
    Thanks for this wonderful oil recipe….how long does this oil stay,also,it can be left outside or does it go in the refrigerator…..thx a ton

    1. Thank you, Shilpa. I made mine over 2 months ago, it is still good and I am using the same. Store in a cool dark place, it hardens in the refrigerator.

  25. Mayuri Nidigallu Sonal

    Hi. Very nice recipe. Ll definitely try. One question v can prepare the oil once and use it till it finishes?

    1. Thank you, Sonal. Yes, that is what i do. Store it in a cool,dark place.

  26. Mayuri Nidigallu ramya

    can you add castor oil?, will there be any harm in adding it and also instead of coconut oil can i use olive oil?

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

  27. Mayuri Nidigallu janaki

    My Hair is falling incredibly ..I tried something similar before but only coconut oil and curry leaves but didn’t make a difference. Do you think adding onions and garlic would help?

    1. Following the recipe as it is has helped me, which is why i have shared it, Janaki.

  28. Mayuri Nidigallu Ritu

    I’m going to try this. Which essential oil did you use to mix in this ad how much?

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

  29. Mayuri Nidigallu Meena

    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

    1. Hi Meena. It is a red onion.

  30. Mayuri Nidigallu Radhika

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

    1. 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 Sonal

    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. 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 Shubs

    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. 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 Shubs

        Thanks Mayuri 🙂 . Will surely give it a try. Hoping for the same result

  33. Easy to make and quick recipe as all ingredients are available at home. A must try for me as we all suffers from hair problems thanks for sharing

  34. 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. Hope you tried it, Medha 🙂

  35. very nice recipe. Thanks for sharing 🙂 I do love coconut oil and curry leaves 🙂

  36. Mayuri Nidigallu Jaya

    Hi, does this recipe help dandruff related problems. But i have hairfall and split ends too. Can i give a try?

    1. 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 Shelly

    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. 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.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Vandana

        Hi, Is it mandatory to soak the meethi leaves… Can I use it directly instead?

        1. Hi Vandana. Yes, you have to soak them, you won’t be able to grind them otherwise.

  38. Mayuri Nidigallu Divya

    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?

  39. Mayuri Nidigallu Rekha Rajiv

    Hi… how about using frozen Red Shallots ?

    1. Ummmmm, if you can’t find fresh ones, make do with frozen ones I guess, Rekha:)

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Samtha

        Does it helps in hair regrowth

        1. It surely does, if you use it regularly.

  40. 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

    1. Preeti, after how well the oil worked for me, the smell doesn’t bother me at all!:))) Hope it works as well for you too!:)

    2. Mayuri Nidigallu Rebecca

      Thanks Mayuri for sharing this receipe. I m loosing a lot of hair. I gonna a give it a try. Can I use a few drops of almond oil when applying it.

      1. I would say , No. Use the oil as it is. Without any additions.

  41. I’ll surely try this, Mayuri!
    Thanks for sharing:)

    1. You’re welcome, Anita:)

    2. You’re most welcome, Anita:)

  42. Mayuri Nidigallu Anu

    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!

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

  43. 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.

    1. Hahahaha, Kalpanaa. Hope you tried it!:)

  44. 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.

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

  45. Mayuri Nidigallu Deepa Shetty

    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 ?

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu Deepa Shetty

      I meant reheat the oil to get the desired color ?

    2. 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.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Deepa Shetty

        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.

  46. Very interesting… would like to give it a try 🙂 Thanks for sharing <3

    1. Thanks for reading, Ritu.

  47. Mayuri Nidigallu Sushma

    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?

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

  48. Mayuri Nidigallu Archana

    Came across this post recently. Sounds interesting!! Gonna try this. Also in case you come across such miracle recipes for grey hair please do share!..Thanks for sharing,

  49. Does this stinks kya after applying ?
    I have been careful with my hair too anf presntly am using Bhtingraj oil.
    Will give it a try too soon

    1. It does stink, yes:)) Thanks for reading, Dixita:)

  50. Wow Mayuri, I chanced upon your blog for the 1st time today but I feel I have found a sea full of interesting information. I am so gonna make this DIY oil. I am crazy about maintaining my 4 yrs old daughters long hair, I am sure this is like a god sent link I came on.. Thanks a lot. Will come back and check out everything that you have to offer here. Wonderful site.

  51. 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!!

    1. Red Sambhar Onions would be Red Shallots outside of India, Pikakshi. Hope you find them. thanks for reading:)

  52. Oh wow! wonderful recipe Mayuri, true when I say I use onion for my hair people do laugh but the results are really great.

  53. Mayuri Nidigallu Madhavi

    2 weeks into using this oil, the texture of my hair definitely changed…and still a long way to go before seeing any hair growth…..I am sure it will stand up to the expectations….Thanks a ton for sharing the recipe…

    1. 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.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Spoorthi

        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 .

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

  54. Mayuri Nidigallu Grace

    Hello ! I made it and am eager to try it on this week 🙂 Thank you for sharing your tried recipe, i am sure it will work.

    1. Thank you for reading, Grace. I am sure it will work:)

  55. I am definitely trying this. I could use all the help I get in hair care department!!

    1. Do try it, Swathi. It really works!

  56. Mayuri Nidigallu Asha

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

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Asha

        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. 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.

  57. All natural ingredients.. gonna try for sure.. thanks for sharing

    1. You’re welcome, Shivi 🙂

  58. Mayuri Nidigallu Bnms

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

    1. 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.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Bnms

        Thanks Mayuri

        Can I add Kapur to reduce smell of the onions and garlic ?

        Can I tried it on my 2 yrs old ?

        1. I would suggest NOT adding Camphor as we don’t know how it would react with the other ingredients. You could use it on your 2 year old.

          1. Mayuri Nidigallu Bnms

            Thanks Mayuri

  59. How come I never saw this post???
    I have pretty decent hair and hate to oil it. But looking at the benefits you have mentioned, I will definitely be making this this weekend.

  60. Mayuri Nidigallu Vandana

    Thank you for sharing !! Will sure try dis..when should shampoo hairs after applying oil ?

    1. If possible, leave oil in the hair overnight and shampoo the next day.

  61. Mayuri Nidigallu Sahi

    I simmer cooked it for almost 30-40 mins & mixture did not darken to black. I strained it n been using but no effect on my hair loss. N it makes my hair brittle n dry n more prone to knots. Does it matter it should turn black?

    1. The Oil will NOT tun black. The mixture of the ingredients will turn dark brown, lending the colour to the oil.It does not take 30-40 minutes either, maybe you burnt it? I am a little surprised at your feedback, I guess it hasn’t suited you. Please discontinue use.

  62. Mayuri Nidigallu Kirti

    Hi Mayuri,
    I used 500ml of oil but after strain, it turned out to a very small quantity. Does the same happened with you ?

    1. No, Kirti. Even after boiling and straining it, the quantity of my hair oil reduced only marginally.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Kirti

        Did you keep it overnight ? For me it seems like the mixture has socked most of it

        1. Kept it for overnight, yes.Just liked I mentioned in the recipe.

  63. Mayuri Nidigallu Sahi

    Is there a reason that my comment is not posted here? Neither have you answered my Q regarding your hair oil?

  64. Mayuri Nidigallu Sahi

    Sorry I do see the reply now. Ignore my above comment.

  65. My granny suggested me a similar oil with just methi and kadipatta and that too worked well. Will try this version too 🙂

  66. Mayuri Nidigallu Sushmita

    Which Shampoo works best for you ? Any Recommendation

    1. Sushmita, I use Patanjali Milk Protein Shampoo, by Baba Ramdev.

  67. Mayuri Nidigallu Shuchi Gupta

    Hi Mayuri
    I tired to make the paste..but cudn’t make …it got stuck in my mixer…csn we add some water in it…i clicked a pic also…how do i send you the pic…plz help

    1. Hi Shuchi, you cannot add water at all. Grind the onions first, as they sweat out water, and then add the other ingredients. You need a mixie with really sharp blades too.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Shuchi Gupta

        Ok vl try again…onions shud be cut very small or just roughly…..first we have to grind onions then rest of the things….

        1. I added everything together in the mixie, Shuchi. But since you’re having a problem doing so, I suggested that tip. Chop Onions roughly, slightly large and grind.

          1. Mayuri Nidigallu Shuchi Gupta

            Thanks Mayuri….

  68. Mayuri Nidigallu Reddy

    I do not see where you used the soaked methi seeds.

    1. Hi,
      If you’ve read the recipe you must have seen that I mentioned that you must grind ALL the ingredients EXCEPT the Coconut Oil to form a paste. When I mentioned ALL ingredients, that included the soaked Methi Seeds too, AFTER draining out the water.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Reddy

        Great, thank you! I missed tht part somehow…

  69. My mother used to make oil like this for me. But not with these many ingredients. They are all daily stuff you can find in the kitchen. Maybe I’ll try it out soon 😀 Thanks for the tip dear.

  70. Mayuri Nidigallu Jas

    I am making mine right now it’s on the stove!!!! Hope it works for everybody!
    Thanks for the oil recipe.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu Jas

      My concern is after straining the oil do I throw the onion curry leaves mixture or any way to use it…. thanks!

      1. Yes, Jas. you strain the mixture as best as you can , squeezing out the oil of it if required, and throw it away.

  71. Mayuri Nidigallu Poonam

    Hi Mayuri
    How to store the oil during summers??

    1. I am storing mine in the fridge, Poonam. Taking out a little at a time, warming it up and using it.

  72. Mayuri Nidigallu navneeta munot

    hi ..thanks a lot for sharing this ..i just made it yesterday..nd used it today..but applied the oil for about 3 hours only ..but the result is incredible ..my hair is become soft nd silky..hope it helps in regrowth of my hair ..i have very very bad hair fall since 6years

  73. Mayuri Nidigallu Amritha

    Can V add camphor to mask the smell?

    1. I have never added Camphor, Amritha. You could do so at your own discretion.

  74. Mayuri Nidigallu sonali

    Hi, thanks so much for the receipe. I have put red onions. I did nit get sambar onions. Also i have added ginger as well(complete chutney).ginger also has good benefits to the hair. I absolutely love the ginger shampoo from body shop. Its awesome for dandruff treatment.Somehow my mix did nit turn dark even though i boiled it for 30 mins :(.
    I will let you Know how it goes after a few weeks.

    Thanks again

  75. Needless to say that I am going to make this! I’ve always had doubts regarding this kind of hair mix, but your recipe and post make it all absolutely clear.

    1. Please do, you won’t regret it one bit 🙂

  76. Does it work for grey hair too? That’s my major concern and biggest issue. 🙁

    1. It does delay greying, Rashi:)

  77. Mayuri Nidigallu Richa Singh

    I have been reading about this recipe post of yours online since forever. And I kept telling myself I need to try it, try it. I am obsessed with haircare. And extremely particular – all oils are mostly cottage industry recipes packaged (yeah that mad). This one I am DEFINITELY going to cry – for one I trust you and second I used coconut oil as base on hair (or Olive- but this is fine).

    I have one question though – what is sambhar onions? I don’t know.. what should I ask for? P.S I am in India 😛

    1. Thanks for reading, Richa. I hope you will try this Oil and see the wonders of it for yourself. Sambhar Onions are called Shallots/Pearl Onions/Chotte Kande. They are available at most vegetable markets and vendors, and also on Online grocery sites like Amazon/Grofers/Big Basket etc

  78. very much informative post, will prepare it today for sure.

  79. My hair has taken a hit from all the colouring and weather changes after moving to Jakarta. Thanks for sharing this and knowing it works is sure worth a try.

  80. Mayuri Nidigallu Malini

    Hello Mayuri,

    I stumbled upon your blog as I am eargerly looking for some oils/vitamins to tackle my hair loss…I have been having severe hair loss from past few weeks..I am going to try it out for sure..So now its 5/6 months down you have started this oil..Can you give a recent update on your hair with this oil ? Also do you use any kind of shampoo after using this oil or any natural shapoos ?

  81. Mayuri Nidigallu v

    if oil turns dark is it unusable?

    1. No. It is un usuable only when it smells rancid.

  82. Mayuri Nidigallu Navatha

    Hi… thank you for sharing this wonderful oil. M y doubt is :::
    Is it ok to use daily night and next day head bath?
    Is it possible to get back hair on balr area (happened due hair straightening and chemical colors etc)?

  83. Mayuri Nidigallu Kundan

    I see these points they noted on organic coconut oil bottle… unrefined, medium heat, cold pressed. Is it ok to use this oil? Thank you so much for your reply!!

    1. Any easily available organic coconut oil would do.

  84. A visit to this post was long overdue and I’m so glad I finally did it. I’m definitely trying this out. I want healthy and beautifully glossy hair like you!

    1. Hahahahaha, then you must make it soon!:)

  85. Mayuri Nidigallu Versha Chugh

    What essential oils can be used while applying?

    1. Whichever fragrance you prefer.

  86. Mayuri Nidigallu Versha Chugh

    Ok… my question was more on what are they?

  87. Mayuri Nidigallu Monika

    Hello Mayuri,

    Which essential oil to use and also in what proportion ?

    1. Any essential oil that you like, Monika. A drop in the oil you are applying at any given time, NOT in the whole bottle.

  88. Mayuri Nidigallu Kajal Aggarwal

    Hi – A Quick question – what essential oil do you recommend to use to help with the smell and how much.
    Thank you.

    1. I use Jasmine Essential Oil. Just a tiny drop in the portion of oil you are applying to your hair. Not to the entire stock of Oil.

  89. Mayuri Nidigallu Aparna

    Hi Mayuri… thanks alot for sharing this recipe, it really is a miracle oil. 1year after giving birth I started losing hair and it never stopped. My hair would come off every time I brush it and when I’m washing hair bunches of hair would be washing down with water, that’s a horrible sight.
    And then finding hair everywhere in the house is another frustrating thing.
    I tried this oil on Friday night and next morning when I’m brushing my bed hair only few strands came off, I was overwhelmed with joy and surprise. And then no more hair fall while brushing or around the house. ALL THIS JUST AFTER FIRST USE.
    I applied the oil again last night and this morning… not even one strand came off while brushing it’s not just like magic… it’s like black magic… can’t thank you enough.
    *I used parachute coconut oil and I don’t have shallots at home so I made the oil without them.
    * I accidentally chopped some ginger as well (all those curry ingredients made me do it) but luckily I checked the recipe just before grinding the paste and removed it

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know, Aparna. Lol at adding ginger:))) Do try to get Shallots the next time you make it.

  90. Mayuri Nidigallu Aparna

    Hello ladies… I have shared my detailed experience, but to all those wondering about shallots or pearl onions… I prepared without sambar onions and the oil worked wonders for me. Next time I would add shallots if I can get them at Indian stores, but it’s still miracle oil without shallots

    1. Thanks, again. Aparna.

  91. […] I make my own Hair Oil and call it Miracle Hair Oil for a reason, you could take a look at the recipe here. […]

  92. Mayuri Nidigallu Rupa. A

    Hello Mayuri,

    Thanks for the hair oil. I lost so much hair and tried several different remedies. This one did it, with my age my hair has not grown but I see new hair growth and the patches are covered, even my hair dresser said that the patches are covered. Tommorow making another batch.

    1. Mayuri Nidigallu jhilmil tandon

      Hi, are you serious because I have wasted so much money and I am going in depression as I am facing hairfall continuously from past one year. I consulted doctor also and he said everything is fine with me.plz tell if it works for you because I am fed up of trying anything now

  93. Mayuri Nidigallu jhilmil tandon

    Hi, are you serious because I have wasted so much money and I am going in depression as I am facing hairfall continuously from past one year. I consulted doctor also and he said everything is fine with me.plz tell if it works for you because I am fed up of trying anything now

  94. Mayuri Nidigallu Leha Devaraj

    Hello do we need to grind it all?? Why cant we put in the oil n boil it instead of grinding it??

    1. Yes, Leha. You do need to grind it all. That way the oil can imbibe the property of each ingredient thoroughly.

  95. Mayuri Nidigallu Shikha

    Any one tried this? Is this oil really works ?

    1. Shikha, read the comments above 🙂 Also I have shared it only because it works.

  96. Mayuri Nidigallu Ankita Bhaumik

    Thanks for sharing the recipie for the hair tonic..
    I prepared the oil and applied it for the first time… Hoping this really works for my dull, lifeless frequently blow dried hair. Shall share the result after few application..

    1. Sure, Ankita. Fingers crossed

  97. Mayuri Nidigallu kirti agarwal

    but why can’t we use the essential oil to the whole bottle at once..few essential oil like rosemary tea tree help in hair growth too n work as preservative also

    1. You could try. I did that and the oil began to smell really terrible after a few days. The fragrance of the kadipata/onion/garlic + jasmine essential oil wasn’t a good combination.

  98. Mayuri Nidigallu Kurt agarwal

    why can’t we use essential oil to the bottle itself…I heard essential oil also help in good growth of hairs as well as they work as natural preservative…waiting for a reply…n I m going to try the recipe tomorrow

  99. Mayuri Nidigallu Prajakta

    Hi Mayuri, I am so glad to have stumbled upon this anti-hairfall oil recipe. Just wanted to ask one thing – can I make the oil without red shallots? They are not available in my city, even the frozen ones are not available

    1. Hi Prajakta. A lot of people have the same issue as you, unavailability of red shallots, and went ahead and made the oil without them, and got the same results. Do try it, I would say.

  100. Mayuri Nidigallu Ankita Bhaumik

    I have made and applied the same oil, and in just 4 applications, my hair has Improved almost 50%. Itis silly smooth.. am sure regular application we mk hair super good.. thank you for sharing such a oil.. Stay always blessed.

  101. I use hair oil made with curry leaves and coconut oil using the same technique. I wasn’t aware of the inclusion of garlic and onions to it

  102. Mayuri Nidigallu kirti agarwal

    but there was lot of foam on the top..I thought it was moisture so it has to settle down.or else the oil may rancid after sometime…so if the colour changes but the lot of foam remains is it fine…n one more query do I have to store continuously or just in between is enough

    1. The foam has no role to play 🙂 You only need to watch out to see that the mixture is changing color. When it changes from green to brown, that is when you know it is done.
      If you live in a place that is hot and humid, you will need to refrigerate it throughout. If the place is cool and dry, then you don’t need to, and you can store it outside.

  103. Mayuri Nidigallu kirti agarwal

    thanku so much Mayuri for answering all my queries so patiently…now Its very clear to me

    1. You’re welcome, Kirti. Hope the oil helps you as much as it helped me.

  104. Mayuri Nidigallu kirti agarwal

    I m sure it would be beneficial to me as well…you have explained the receipe so clearly …I was thinking could we add fresh brahami leaves too to make it more beneficial to hairs

  105. Mayuri Nidigallu Bhavya

    Hi how many months we can store this oil

    1. If you store it in the fridge, you cold store it till it lasts. Remove a little, warm it up, and use each each time you need to.

  112. Mayuri Nidigallu V

    Did your friend get this recipe from any ayurveda doctor or Ayurvedic magazine? Just asking as I am a firm believer of Ayurveda and would love to try them when I know it’s coming from a specialist.

    1. My friends Yoga teacher gave this recipe to her.

  113. Mayuri Nidigallu Lavanya

    Can we use this oil daily and wash next day?

  114. Mayuri Nidigallu Lavanya

    Can we apply this daily ?

    1. Yes, you can. But I suggest you give it a break between applications.

  115. Mayuri Nidigallu Melicia KULKARNI

    Hi.. I have made my 1st batch of this oil today.. Hope it will work for me too like many of you..

    Thanks Mayuri..

    1. You’re welcome, Melicia. Hope it works wonderfully for you.

  117. Mayuri Nidigallu Soma

    Hello Mayuri…I am experiencing extremely bad hairfall from past few days….it has been such that my crown scalp is being seen…Am trying not to panic but can’t help….And from last one week I have been using onion juice on my scalp every alternate day, as one of my frnd has suggested…I am gonna try ur oil recepie…hope it works for me….keeping my fingers crossed….hope I see a revolution in my hair growth….Thank u 🙂

    1. Hairfall is always very disturbing, Soma, So i know how you must feel. This oil has helped me, and many others and I hope it helps you too. Take care.

  118. Mayuri Nidigallu Soma

    Thank you for ur reply Mayuri…I appreciate it.

  119. Mayuri Nidigallu Soma

    One question is, can I use Dove hairfall rescue shampoo n conditioner?

  120. Mayuri Nidigallu Celebrian

    Hello, my hair falls out more when I shampoo after oiling my hair and scalp with coconut oil. I think it’s because I have oily scalp and the oil made it worse? What was the condition of your scalp when you tried this? Is it oily scalp?

    After leaving this overnight, when you wash it off, do you experience more hair fall? How much more? And how much hair fall do you experience on non-oiled days (for comparison so that I get an idea of what’s normal)?

    Do you apply the oil directly to your scalp using a dropper and then massaging it in or do you just apply the oil to your hair?

    Thank you for sharing the recipe and the clear instructions. I hope it works for me… but I’m worried that it will cause more hair to fall out and I can’t afford to do that >.< So please let me know your thoughts, especially about the condition of your scalp and whether you apply the oil and massage it directly into your scalp! Thank you very much!!

  121. Mayuri Nidigallu Soma

    Hi Mayuri, I made a blunder….I forgot to add garlic in the mixture….I remembered at the last….wat do I do now?

    1. Oh-oh! Nothing can be done now, Sona, as you need to cook the Garlic too. Use it as it is.

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu Soma

        Will it still help? Without garlic. 🙁

        1. Really have no idea, Soma. As i always make it with all ingredients.

  122. Mayuri Nidigallu S

    I would roast just the required amount of crushed garlic in some oil, filter, and mix the oil into the garlic-less oil, Soma.

  123. Mayuri Nidigallu S

    Nice recipe. Hope my kids and husband will let me put it in their hair and won’t run away from me if I have it in mine 🙂 Do you wrap your head in something overnight? Doesn’t your bedroom smell of onions and garlic by morning? Thanks.

    1. No, I don’t wrap my head, Sangeeta. Yes, the bedroom smells like Biryani, all day:)

      1. Mayuri Nidigallu S

        Ahhhh!! Thank you.

  124. Mayuri Nidigallu Janhavi

    I’m going to try this recipe, however I’m
    confused…could you clarify- sambar onions to me are pearl onions and they are different from shallots. Any idea which is the best one to use?

    1. If you get Sambhar Onions,use those. They are the 1st presence. If you don’t get them, use Shallots.

  125. Mayuri Nidigallu Megha

    I’ve made this recipe using sarso oil with regular onions, as I get tangle and rough hair with coconut oil… I added about 100 grams castor oil to it post frying the ingredients… I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now, I think the texture has gone up 100%. My hair is now mostly tangle free and very smooth and shiny, but I don’t see a remarkable change in hair fall… waiting for new hair growth to strengthen my resolve as Nobody in my family even eats onion and garlic so the smell is quite troublesome… will keep you posted in case of a positive result…

  126. Mayuri Nidigallu Rupa

    Hi, do we need to peel the onions and garlic before making the paste?

  129. Mayuri Nidigallu Shubhi

    Hi Mayuri,
    Just wanted to know that if you don’t see any hair fall after you wash your hairs. I see 50-80 strands coming out (minimum) when I wash my hair. I am using this for the last 10 months.

    1. Hi Shubhi. Before using the HairOil my hairfall was massive. Tt has come down drastically, but yes, when i wash my hair, there is still the minimum hairfall, 20-30 + strands. New hair is growing though and I guage that by the thickness of my hair.

    1. Hi Zara. I have never tried adding any substitutes other than the ingredients I mentioned. You can try them at your own risk.

    Hi Mayuri,
    Does it help in regrow of hair where currently looks like bald patches. After how long did you notice regrow of hairs, in case it helped.

    Thanks for the reply in advance

    1. That really depends on the reason for the bald patches, Jinal. If they are due to a skin/scalp disorder or a hereditary issue, then I am not sure it will help.

        Hi, Do we need to hair wash each time you apply? Or we can leave it and apply one more time and do hair wash?

        1. Yes. You do need to wash it after leaving it on for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.

    2 questions-
    1. For how long can we store it ?
    2. How to use it in winters ?

    1. Hi Ilma
      If you live in a place where the climate is hot and humid please store the oil in the fridge , not freezer. in Winters take the amount you need, warm it up and use it.

    Hi, once you apply the oil, do we need to do hair wash next day for sure? or we can leave it on hair and apply oil one more time couple days later and do shampoo wash ? please suggest?

    Hi mayuri,
    On an average how many days we can use this oil?

    1. At least twice a week at the start. once a week later on. I have been using it ever since i first made it.

    Hi, my oil turned to green and thick, it has very pungent smell. Is that normal? Trying to attach picture but i dont see an option .

    1. Hi Shanthi. Yes the oil turns thicker, and also changes color to green / greenish-brown. It also smells like Biryani or a Vegetable Gravy, and that is completely ok:)

    Hi Mayuri

    Is it necessary to leave the oil overnite on hair

    Can I leave for 2 to 3 hour in the morning n use thrice in a week
    Can I also take steam after oiling

    1. Hi Sakshi.
      Leaving it on overnight gets you the best results, but if you can’t a minimum of 3 hours is good too. Yes, you can take steam after oiling.
