Garlic and Hair Growth

Hair loss is a problem that many people suffer from. For men, it is often associated with simply growing older and having a genetic predisposition toward male pattern baldness. For women, it can be another matter altogether, and as the hair is the woman’s crown, it is important to get to the root of the hair loss.  Garlic oil has so many benefits for your health, skin and hair.  Topical application of 5% garlic gel to areas where hair loss had taken place led to hair regrowth, reduction in size of bald patches, and higher hair count. The sulfur and selenium contained within garlic can help fortify the structure of the hair shaft, meaning it can not only help to replenish lost hair, but can strengthen the existing one. The vitamins and minerals that each clove of garlic is imbued with can also naturally condition your hair while adding strength to it. However, as many people don’t know, garlic oil also has a ton of beauty benefits and can really impact the health and look of your hair significantly.

1.      Mince a few garlic cloves in either olive oil or coconut oil, depending on which one you prefer.
2.      Strain the minced garlic from the oil.
3.      Put it in a jar or container and store it in a cool, dry place preferably refrigerator in order to extend it life span.
4.      Once you are done, you can use it in your hair and watch how the garlic oil benefits it in no time!
Use one tablespoon of olive oil per clove of garlic, and allow the mixture to steep for one to two weeks in the refrigerator before using.
