Mama Earth Onion Shampoo for Hair Growth and Hair Fall Control Review

Hello Everyone,

As I had mentioned in my previous post that I am suffering from severe hair loss from the past 3-4 months. I had neglected my hair care for a long time and these are just the repercussions of that neglection that my hair has gone through over the years. The first thing that I wanted to switch up in  my hair care routine was my shampoo because for me shampoo is the most important part of a hair care routine. As we all know that onion is extremely beneficial for our hair so I decided to try out the Mama Earth Onion Shampoo as onion was one of the main ingredients. I ordered a lot of stuff from Mama Earth around two months back and this shampoo was a part of that haul. I have posted reviews of a lot of their products on my blog and I somehow didn’t like their products that much. The products are just above average, nothing great about them as such. But I had high expectations from their onion range as everyone around in the blogging world keeps raving about them. I have been using it for over a month now so I thought I have used it enough to share an in-depth review.

My Experience with the Mama Earth Onion Shampoo:

The Mama Earth Onion Shampoo comes in a tall white and green cylindrical plastic bottle with a pump dispenser and with all the details about the product mentioned on the bottle itself. The shampoo is milky white in colour and has a very thick gel like consistency. I usually like to mix around 1 Tbsp of the shampoo with a little water so that it can spread easily on my scalp. After adding the water to the shampoo I massage the shampoo on my scalp for a good 2 minutes to remove all the dirt, impurities and the product build up on my scalp. When the shampoo lathers up I run my fingers down my hair length to spread it all over my hair. I leave the shampoo on my hair for 2 minutes and then I wash it off with lukewarm water. On days when I oil my hair, I need to use it twice to remove the traces of oil from my hair.

The shampoo cleans my hair like any other normal shampoo would do. It is just an average shampoo, nothing too great about it. It is definitely not helping me with my hair fall and does not strengthen the hair roots at all. The sad part is that it does not fulfill even one of its claims. With onion as the main ingredient I was looking for miraculous results but I am highly disappointed with this one. To be true, the pink Sunsilk shampoo works way better on my hair than this one.

Pros of the Mama Earth Onion Shampoo:
  • Nice Packaging.
  • Sulfate and paraben free.
  • Very mild formulation
  • Does not dry out the hair.
  • Suitable for all hair types.
Cons of the Mama Earth Onion Shampoo:
  • Does not reduce hair fall.
  • Does not give it shine or any volume.
  • Does not make my hair soft.
  • Does not live upto its claims.
  • Does not control frizziness.
  • Does not control oil production on my scalp, my hair becomes oily the next day after hair wash.
Rating of the Mama Earth Onion Shampoo:

I would give it a 2.5/5.
