When we think about hair care, the first thing that comes to our mind is hair oil. Hair oil is basically an oil-based cosmetic product that is applied to the hair and gently massaged to improve the quality of our hair. Some hair oils are made for regular use and maintain the overall quality of your hair while some specialize in fighting dandruff and preventing hair loss.
Hair oil generally provides nourishment to your scalp while strengthening your hair roots and preventing frizziness. Hair oils are available in the Indian markets for both men and women.

So the ingredients used in this hair oil have all the proven properties and thereby the hair oil justifies its claims.
Free from harmful chemicals?
The problem with any cosmetics or hair grooming products is the presence of chemicals that harms your skin or hair in the long run. Mensome Red Onion Hair Oil is entirely free from any harmful chemicals such as sulfates, SLS and phthalates. The onion hair oil is made from natural ingredients and hence does not necessarily have any side effects.
For men only?
Although Mensome is a brand that mainly focuses on men’s grooming products, its onion hair oil can be used by both men and women. This is because the ingredients used in the product are suitable for both men and women. Normally, when it comes to skincare, men’s skin is way more rough compared to women’s. As a result, the skincare cosmetics for both men and women are different. But when it comes to hair especially, hair oil, the choice of ingredients remains to be similar and works efficiently for both.
Mensome Red Onion Hair Oil Personal Review
Our reviewers tried the onion hair oil for 4 weeks and came to a conclusion. The smell of the onion hair oil is on the stronger side and after even completely removing the oil, the smell remains to be intact for at least 4-5 hours. The onion hair oil is reddish in color because of the presence of red onion. Initially, when applied, the hair oil straightaway blends well with your hair.
If your hair is extremely dry, you will definitely love it. After keeping it for at least 30 minutes and then shampooing, you will instantly feel that your hair has become typically soft. After using it for straight four weeks, it actually worked efficiently. It prevented hair breakage and strengthened the hair follicles to make your hair look dense. But personally, our team cannot comment on the anti-dandruff properties of the hair oil as no changes were seen even after using it for 4 weeks.
Mensome Red Onion Hair Oil works efficiently in stopping hair fall, regrowing hair and making your hair smooth and shinier but they lack in the anti-dandruff portion. Maybe you need to use it for a few more weeks to witness its actual anti-dandruff properties.
So overall, compared to other hair oils in the market, Mensome Red Onion Hair Oil can be concluded as one of the best ones if you are someone who’s looking for a hair oil that boosts hair growth and takes care of your hair at the same time.
How to use Mensome Red Onion Hair Oil?

Leave the oil on your hair for at least 1 hour and then thoroughly wash your hair with a proper shampoo. Apply regularly for the best results.
