Benefits of Garlic for Hair
Garlic is what I would call a super-food as it has so many health and beauty benefits that it should not be overlooked. Garlic can save your beautiful locks as it promotes healthy hair growth and stops hair breakage. It is one of the best remedies for hair loss, including alopecia, as it contains essential vitamins and minerals such as copper, zinc, sulphur, Vitamin B, Vitamin C and Iron. It also reduces symptoms of irritation and provides nourishment to the hair follicles which can be blocked by DHT (Dihydrotestosterone, the main cause of hair loss in both women and men) or a bad diet. It can also kill germs and microbes on the scalp that may be affecting the scalp and stopping healthy hair growth. Garlic increases hair thickness and can therefore hide apparent balding and hair loss. It also boosts circulation and detoxifies the body thus boosting the function of the immune system and promoting the growth of healthy cells and hair.
How To Use Garlic To Treat Hair Loss
There are many ways to add this perfect remedy for hair loss to your beauty regimen. To solve the problem of hair loss, gently crush a garlic clove on the balding spot on the scalp an hour before going to bed. The juice from the garlic should be spread firmly and evenly on the area. It should be left on the scalp for 60 minutes and then olive oil should be added to the area. You can leave the treatment on overnight but please wear a shower cap. As soon as you wake up, it would be best to shampoo you hair right away. You can also add garlic to your shampoo and conditioner. If you can’t stand the smell of garlic in your hair, you can try garlic supplements. However, you should consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet.
