Hi Gorgeous,

Excessive hair fall is one the major hair problems that we all face at some point in our life. We have all been there. Sometimes its just because we are sick, our lack of sleep or just our laziness to maintain our hair care routine. If its been more than a month and you are still losing too much hair may be its time to step up and do something about your hair fall.

It is perfectly normal that you lose some hair due to weather change. But that only lasts for 1 or 2 weeks. It is also normal that you lose about 100 hair strands per day ( trust me everyone does ) If you are doing some hot oil treatment or hair spa then losing some more is also quiet natural.

My Story

Even I lose at least 20 to 30 hair strands each time I brush my hair. But you know, in the month of February, I was really emotionally unstable. I lost my pet dog ‘Switu‘ and it really hit me hard emotionally and mentally and along with my baby dog, my hair started leaving me too. My hair suffered a lot. I was losing almost 200 to 300 hair strands per day. Sometimes I just felt like while brushing my hair, I will go bald. Then one morning I woke up and saw that my pillow had about 400 hair strands on it. I was completely freaked out. I immediately thought I need to do something for my hair loss right now and

Then I actually did the following steps

  1. Hot oil massage with DIY hair fall control oil on Saturday
  2. On Sunday morning I washed my hair and rinsed it with Fenugreek hair rinse and after rinsing it I applied Fenugreek and Aloevera mask.
  3. Then on Thursday I worked on regrowth of my lost hair and for that I made a DIY Hair Regrowth Oil.
  4. Repeated this Hair Fall Control Routine for entire month and Tadaaa… Hair Fall Problem solved!!!

Lets check in bit detail about my Hair Fall Control Routine?

How the heck I exactly controlled my Hair Fall?

The first thing I did was a Hot oil treatment using a DIY Hair Oil for Hair Loss.

For making this Hair Oil I used

diy hair fall control hair oil


  • Extra Virgin Coconut oil – 1 cup (as base oil)
  • Curry Leaves – Fresh leaves about 30 to 40 leaves
  • Neem Leaves – Fresh leaves about 30 to 40 leaves
  • Onion Seeds – 2 TSP
  • Tea Tree oil – 1 TSP
  • Argon Oil – 1 TSP


  1. Firstly I heated the Coconut oil until smoke started coming from it.
  2. Then I added Curry leaves and Neem Leaves. Be careful it sizzles a bit.
  3. Now as soon as the leaves started changing its color, I added onion seeds to it. Kept stirring, until it all turned black.
  4. Now turned off the heat and strained the oil after it cooled down.
  5. Then I added 5-6 drops of Tea tree oil (I used Soulflower Tea Tree Aroma Massaged Oil) and 5-6 drops of Argan oil ( I used Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil – Hibiscus and Argan Oil) to it.
  6. The Hair oil for Hair Loss is ready to use. It can be stored for a month. (Video Tutorial Coming soon, Stay Tuned !!!)

I applied this hair oil on my hair at night and gave my hair a hot oil massage. Actually my mom massaged it and it felt much more warmer.


  • You can store this oil for a month or even 15 days more, if you keep it in cool and dry place and away from sunlight.
  • Heat this oil using double boiler method for much more enhanced results. Never heat the oil directly, it loses its nutrients.
  • For much better results, you can use steam, so that the oil penetrates much better into your hair shafts.

The next morning I washed my hair with Pantene Prov Hair Fall Shampoo. I added Rosemary oil to it. You can check out here about why and how to add Rosemary to your shampoo.

Then I rinsed my hair with hair rinser for hair loss for that I soaked fenugreek seeds overnight. (basically its the water in which I soaked the fenugreek seeds.) You can check out the complete recipe here.

Then I let the rinser on for 20 minutes and rinse it with water.

After the Hair Rinser came the time for hair fall control hair mask. For that I just made past of soaked Fenugreek seeds and mixed equal quantity of Aloe Vera Gel to it. Just Applied it on my hair and scalp and kept it for an hour. Then rinsed it with warm water followed by Conditioner by Oriflame. It just works great on my hair.

I repeated this process every week on Sunday and on Thursday I make another Diy Hair Oil for Controlling Hair Fall and Regrowth of Hair that worked really amazing on my hair. Basically this second oil actually helps in regrowth of the hair. This actually works amazingly well on men’s hair loss too.

The Diy Hair Oil for Fall Control and Regrowth of Hair

diy hair loss and hair regrowth oil

This is the hair regrowth oil recipe which was actually real effective on my uncle who started losing its hair after certain age. He shared this recipe with me and I gave it a try and it worked like a charm.


  • Onion Juice – 2 TSP
  • Castor Oil – 1 TSP
  • Bhringraj oil – 2 TSP


  1. Firstly, I grate and extracted fresh onion juice of about 2 tsp.
  2. Then added equal quantity of Bhringraj Oil ( I used Mahabhringraj Oil but Bhringraj Oil by Khadi works really great too.)
  3. Then added Castor oil of 1 TSP and mixed well.
  4. After that, I heated it using double boiler method to keep its nutrients intact.


  • Massage this slowly to hair and scalp and wear your shower cap to prevent your eyes from tearing up.
  • Leave on for maximum 2 hours, otherwise the smell won’t leave your hair.
  • Then wash it with your regular shampoo and conditioner.
  • You can use Rose Hair Perfume to make your hair smell absolutely divine.
  • The bhringraj oil covers the smell of the onion and your eyes would not tear that much. Just a bit of irritation.

Why Should you use Onions for Controlling Hair Fall and Regrowing Your Hair

You might have noticed that I used Onion in my hair oils while recovering from hair fall, the reason is

‘In a 2002 study published in the Journal of Dermatology, almost 74 percent of the study participants who applied onion juice on the scalp experienced significant hair regrowth.’

Along with these

  1. I incorporated lot of Spinach, Carrot and Broccoli in my diet.
  2. I took good night sleep.
  3. Tied my hair in pineapple bun.
  4. Did Inversion method for daily 5 mins. Click here to know more.
  5. Did Yoga exercises for hair growth.(mentioned in the free printable)
  6. I didn’t color my hair for 1 month despite of having Greys. ( Yes peeps I have grey hair)
  7. I didn’t use heat for a month.
  8. I drank almost 25 glasses of water. (crazy right???)
  9. And I made a checklist of these 50 tips.

    can we apply onion mask twice a week…How to use Kalonji for hair growth

  8. Yes you can. I completely understand. Even I prefer occasionally coloring my hair to hide my greys. Try this tip, it works really well for me.

    and as for your query, just use hair fall control oil once a month and use hair oil for covering grey hair for rest of the time while you oil. And since you are losing so hair make sure you patch test your hair color to see if that is the culprit behind your hair fall.

  9. Dhruvi says:

    Can I use your Cover Grey hair oil and hair control oil together? What should be my regime? I have all grey hairs and I am losing my hairs drastically. I have been coloring my hairs all these years. I am working and can’t afford to go with white hairs..

  10. No dear. You should always heat it using double boiler method. And coconut oil doesn’t lead to grey hair. Have been using it since my childhood.

  11. Dhruvi says:

    Did direct heating of coconut oil is good? I learnt it from my mother that it leads to grey hair.

  25. Deepthi says:

    Thanks for sharing this!. Your hair fall routine sounds promising and i will definitely give it a try.
    Can you help me with a link or info to procure the onion seeds?. Is it available online?. I’m located in Bengaluru.

  26. Nimisha Popat says:

    Hi Selene, thanks for sharing. But I guess, natural diys are always the best. And As per a survey I came across recently, onion juice helps in restoring hair in 70 out of 100 people. Its always better to give it a try. Isn’t it??? Thank you so much for sharing about hair restoration surgery. Have a lovely day dear!!!

  27. Selene says:

    These are some great natural solutions to hair loss! Another solution that works really well would be hair restoration surgery. A lot of people have had great results from it. Thanks for sharing!

  28. Elle Mystique says:

    Woaahhhh!!! This is exactly what i need right now! I’ve been experiencing hair fall for quite some time now that it makes me think i’m probably undergoing an invisible chemo session. Thank you so much for this post! I’ll start finding those secret ingredients so I could start creating that diy oil. I’m gonna bookmark this post then after 2months of doing this routine, i’ll get back to this post to let you know if this has been effective to me. weeehhh!!!

  29. Nimi Popat says:

    Thanks for understanding Xavier. Means a lot to me !!!

  30. Xavier B says:

    Damn, I’m so sorry for Switu. I know the feeling, it was so hard when I lost my first one, was my childhood companion.
    But yeah, stress, emotional feelings, sleep etc are all topics affecting hair. I didn’t know all those ingredients, even though many people around me talk to me about stuff like that for my hair since I’m starting to lose on the top. Unfortunately, this is genetics, every men in my family lost them. And I can either keep the crown or shave it all. I know I can make the process slow, but honestly I don’t feel to do so. Fighting some years to in end, have this result anyway because it will happen. It’s just hair and I already accepted it for a long time already. For a compensation I’ll grow a long beard haha

  31. Nimi Popat says:

    Ican definitely relate to it Carola. Try the Masks mentioned. download the hair fall control routine and you will see improved results within a week. 🙂

  32. Carola says:

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll take the time to try this out. I always lose quite some hair (more than others as far as I can compare). But I also do have a lot of hair. But really, at work I can find ‘my’ chair just by looking at the hairs that stuck to it. Same for my car etc.
    So maybe this will help a bit. Though I don’t feel like there’s not enough hair left, it’s annoying to ‘leave’ some hair everyhere!

  33. Nimi Popat says:

    Hey Rachel,
    That’s so sweet of you girl. I didn’t have such beautiful hair. It took a lot of attention and care to make them pretty and thick. And yes Argan oil and coconut oil are awesome if they suit your hair.

  34. Nimi Popat says:

    Hey Jerny,
    I can absolutely relate to them. If I see 4 to 5 hair on my comb and I feel the same way. Lols..

  35. Jerny says:

    Recommending this to my mom and girlfriend. I’m sure they’ll love it. They both have long hairs and hair fall is really annoying for a girl. They feel like going bald day by day xD Funny, but it’s true according to them.

  36. Wow, it looks like a lot of work! I have had problems with hair fall and have heard that coconut oil and argan oil does wonders. I’m envious, youre blessed with such beautiful and thick hair!

  37. Nimi Popat says:

    Hey Sonnie,

    its so good to see you back!!! I can see your concern but you know I already mentioned in the post that mixing onion juice with Bhringraj oil covers up the smell. SO, you can use this oil tension free !!!

  38. Sonnie says:

    I never thought that onion juice can stimulate hair growth. But the smell can be a challenge..

  39. Nimi Popat says:

    Surely give it a try !!!

  40. I feel that my hair is falling too much. I should try your tips although I don’t know where to find the other ingredients. I’d follow your tips on drinking more water and eating more veggies.

  41. Nimi Popat says:

    I love coconut oil. Its just fabulous. you know just a small tip for lashes, olive oil works much better!!!

  42. Nimi Popat says:

    Onion seeds works like a charm on your hair Dawn !!! Thanks for visiting 🙂

  43. Dawn says:

    Stress can wreak havoc on your body. This is very interesting. I’m intrigued by the ingredients. Onion seeds? Wow. Who knew?

  44. koko says:

    I didn’tknow aabout the onion seeds Ikeep my hair healthy with ccoconut oil and so it helps for my lashes to grow

  45. Nimi Popat says:

    Hi Rebecca,
    Fenugreek works great and its safe to take it internally. You will love the results.

  46. rebecca says:

    The fenugreek rinse especially intrigues me. I know I have almost a full bottle of fenugreek left over from nursing. I wonder if taking it internally helps as well.

  47. Nimi Popat says:

    Honestly, these remedies work really well. And according to a study, using onion actually showed regrowth and its regular use actually solves your problem of hair fall. IT not only slows but in most cases it actually makes the problem go away permanently. Like I mentioned my uncle, he gained his hair back and is quiet satisfied with it.

  48. Nimi Popat says:

    Thank you so much for understanding.. Means a lot. Do visit soon .. 🙂

  49. Danielle says:

    First, I am so sorry you lost Switu! I would be absolutely devastated if I lost my dog. With that said, I can understand how the loss took a toll on your body and ultimately your hair =[ But in spite of all that, I love that you found a remedy for your hair loss. It looks like some easy techniques that I wanna try out for myself. So thanks a bunch for the tips!!

  50. Sidney Aldaine says:

    I think everybody has to find what suits their skin and hair, since there are more reasons why hair fall- dry scalp, not enough vitamins, sun damage..

    And if you are a man, nothing can help you, but some remedies can really slow down the process
