The idea of using garlic juice for hair loss, or substituting it with onion juice for hair loss is as old as the world. The effects of garlic and onion for hair loss are known: those are very good natural stimulants which can assist in stimulating blood flow to our scalp and nourishing our hair follicles. Thus, applying fresh garlic juice or onion juice topically on your scalp is definitely one of the best natural solutions for effective hair care and hair re-growth, along with a healthy balanced diet, consuming lots of leafy green vegetables and beans, as well as using only high quality hair care products (preferably the ones based on 100 per cent natural ingredients, or naturally derived ones).
Squeeze 1-2 organic garlic cloves and apply garlic juice on the scalp areas with thinning hair. Massage you scalp gently but firmly first to increase blood circulation to hair follicles for 2 minutes with your fingertips or with a soft hair brush. Do not rub harshly or you will end up with scalp scars. Then let your scalp rest for 5 minutes or so, and then massage it again for 5 more minutes using your fingertips. After half an hour, apply little olive oil to soften the effects of garlic juice, and leave overnight. Also, do not forget to wear a shower cap in order not to spoil the pillow. In the morning wash it away with your usual shampoo (a mild herbal shampoo is preferable).
When using onion or garlic juice for hair loss, you will see the results in just a few months. Keep in mind that some people may be allergic to garlic or onion so it is highly recommended to consult your doctor prior starting any sort of hair loss therapy involving these natural remedies. Additionally it is important to strictly follow a healthy diet. Avoid oily food, red meat, any sort of fried or baked foods, lower your consumption of sugar and other sweeteners, etc. Include lots and lots of leafy greens, almonds, carrots, cabbage, beans, whole-wheat bread, and other healthy foods in your diet. You may shuffle this through out the week and support your natural anti-hair loss therapy by proper nutrition.
You may ask, what is more preferable, using garlic juice for hair loss, or using onion juice for hair loss? Onion juice used topically on scalp is considered second in effectiveness. However, it is more often used instead of garlic juice for hair loss as many people can not stand on terrible smell of this natural remedy. Actually surviving the strong smell of garlic or even onion can be really difficult so people often use ginger which is considered the third very effective natural remedy for hair loss that can be used for scalp massages. All three are rich in minerals good for hair regrowth, and all three can be successfully used to improve our hair quality, as well as prevent and treat hair thinning and loss.
