Shedding of 100 or 150 strands everyday might be left unnoticed. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, hair type, length or texture. Yet, you can’t sit and see your strands wither away when the head starts balding slowly. It happened to me 2-3 months ago. I was losing almost double the amount of hair everyday, especially after showers. And in this COVID situation, I couldn’t afford visiting a doctor for the fear of getting infected. At this point, Mamaearth, one of my favorite brands sent me this serum for reviewing. It literally came to me as a blessing. Soon, I started using it and after two months of consistent use I have come here to share my thoughts.

Onion Scalp Serum with Onion and Niacinamide:

What the brand says about the product:
Our Onion Scalp Serum will put life and bounce back into your locks and stop premature hair fall. Say goodbye to weak hair with Mamaearth Onion Scalp Serum. Onions are an excellent source of natural sulfur that is known to prevent breakage, split-ends, and thinning. This nourishing and hydrating formulation of Red Onion, Vitamin B, Pea Sprout, and Aloe Vera will give you healthier, shinier and thicker hair. It works by nourishing the scalp, stimulating blood circulation, and accelerating healthy hair growth. Pea Sprout being an antioxidant, promotes hair growth while strengthening the hair follicles. The Onion Scalp Serum is water-soluble and deeply absorbs into the scalp without making it feel oily or greasy. It is free of harmful chemicals and toxins such as Silicones, Parabens, Mineral Oil and Dyes.”

The transparent liquid is housed in a white bottle with a dropper dispenser. The product is watery and this dropper makes it simple to quickly apply.


This is a Pre-poo treatment that’s better to apply at night at initial stages. I apply a dropper full and distribute around my scalp, massage into the dry scalp with fingertips. [Check the application here]. Leave it overnight and let it do its magic. The non-greasy, light liquid doesn’t get my hair weighed down. I don’t feel any stickiness on my hair.

The first two weeks, I have used the serum thrice a week. From third week onwards, I have scheduled it twice, left overnight and washed my head next morning with a sulfate free shampoo. Till date this is my hair care ritual. 


Before saying a single word about the effects of Onion Scalp Serum, let me show you some pictures focusing on the parts. I took before and after pictures to show you the results. Why parts? Because this is the most visible area to notice the changes.

Here, you can see how my parts have started to fill in. Doesn’t it look less scattered than before? The hair texture has improved a lot. It looks much healthier, softer and shinier. 
I’m not saying they’ve all returned to my scalp, yet slowly the serum is doing its job. While shampooing in the shower, I am noticing that less strands have been falling out. This is a lightweight, colourless and odourless formula. So, I use it without any fear of side effects like reaction or rashes. 
Though I am not seeing much regrowth, I’m happy that my hair seems to be falling less than before. For regrowth, I have to use this consistently for longer periods.

    Hair fall is always a cause for alarm, and one is always on the lookout for a good and effective treatment. Onion scalp serum seems to be a good and effective product, and best part is that it is not having harmful chemicals.

    Hair fall is a big problem, especially when pollution levels are touching the heights. I hope this product is effective. Though I prefer chemical free products but I haven’t tried mama earth yet. I ll try it after reading this review.

    Mamaearth has some good products. I am also facing a hairfall issue. I think I will try this serum but like you said, it needs patience and a strict routine to make the hair healthy.
