Use garlic for hair growth

By Glowpink Staff   

I know when you hear it for the first time, it sounds weird but it is true. Garlic contains essential elements including sulfur, copper, vitamin C, selenium, and minerals that are highly beneficial for hair growth. The copper in garlic promotes hair growth, thickens your hair, and intensifies hair color. To treat a deficiency of any of the above-mentioned elements you can rely absolutely on wonderful, versatile garlic. Read this article till the end to know more about it.

  • Add it to your shampoo/conditioner

The easiest thing that we usually change for hair growth is shampoo. Add garlic to your shampoo then use it on your hair. Honey is a great conditioner, you can add garlic juice to honey. The honey will nourish your hair and the garlic promotes hair growth. To reduce the odor you can add ginger, which also possesses some great minerals to nourish your hair.
PS: Don’t use garlic shampoo more than twice a month, overuse will dry your hair and scalp.

  •  Add garlic with honey

In a tablespoon of garlic juice, add 1 tbsp, honey. Mix it well. Apply this mixture all over your scalp. Leave it for 20 minutes and then wash it off using mild shampoo.

  •  With coconut oil

The next time you massage your hair with coconut oil, add some garlic juice to it. Simply crush a few garlic cloves and mix with one teaspoon coconut oil, heat the mixture for a few minutes and stir well. Let it cool then apply to your scalp and massage. Repeat 2-3 times a week for best results.

  •  Rub it in

About an hour before bed tear a garlic clove and rub it on the areas of hair loss. Wait an hour then massage your scalp using olive oil. Cover your hair using a cap or hood and sleep, wash your hair upon waking up. The repeated process is likely to regrow your hair.

  •  With olive oil

Keep garlic pods in a bottle of olive oil for a week or so to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. Apply the oil to your hair and scalp at night before you go to sleep. Wash your hair the next morning.

  • Direct application

You can crush garlic and apply the juices directly to your scalp and hair. Leave it on for a few minutes before washing with shampoo and conditioner.

  •  Garlic oil

You can purchase a garlic infusion oil in the market. Natural oil of garlic is better if you can find it. If not, here is how to make it yourself. Chop the garlic finely and soak in olive oil for at least two weeks. You can use almond oil instead if you prefer. Refrigerate between uses to prevent spoilage.
