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 it is important to tackle the root of the problem.
I’ve discussed a number of natural treatments to promote hair growth such as onion for hair growth, castor oil and rosemary. In this article I want to show you how to use garlic to fight hair loss.
Garlic and Hair Growth.
Garlic, that wonder-food with so many benefits, can add another item to its long list of home remedy uses: treatment of hair loss.
A 2007 study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology and performed by dermatological researchers from Iran’s Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences found that topical application of 5% garlic gel to areas where hair loss had taken place led to hair regrowth in the previously bald areas of the scalp, reduction in size of bald patches, and higher hair count numbers.
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 existing hair as well. The vitamins and minerals that each clove of garlic is imbued with can also naturally condition your hair while adding strength.
