Many people are aware of garlic as an incredible immune and health booster, but this powerful bulbous plant is also potent when it comes to fixing problem scalps and hair and stimulating new growth. It aids quick hair growth and slows down hair loss or ‘malting’.
The magic is in the compound allicin, which is found in high amounts in garlic. Another compound, selenium, adds to garlic’s power, especially when combined with vitamin E. Because garlic is also an antioxidant, it is also able to rid the scalp of any bacteria which could harm hair follicles. In total, garlic cleans the scalp, improves scalp circulation and promotes hair growth faster than most other remedies.
To harness the incredible hair benefits of garlic, immerse between 7 and 10 cloves in oil, then bring this oil to the boil. Apply it liberally to the scalp and massage it into the hair follicles. Three applications in one week should make a marked difference to the condition of your strands.
