Research at UK Bradford University shows that thinning and graying are caused by a hydrogen peroxide accumulation. When hydrogen peroxide accumulates in the hair follicles oxidative stress occurs, which leads to hair damage and hair discoloration.

Clinical studies have shown that onion juice has a similar reaction to catalase when applied on the scalp. Onion juice increases catalaise on the skin surface, reducing hydrogen peroxide accumulation.
