Hair loss issues — bring on the onions & garlic

April 7, 2011

Hair loss can be a difficult problem to deal with. My advice – head to your kitchen for the onions and garlic! The main mineral found in both of these foods is sulfur. Sulfur will help with hair growth and help to maintain the structure of your hair.

Onion: Onions are rich in Vitamin C, B6, calcium, magnesium, potassium, germanium, minerals and sulfur. They also contain antiseptic, stimulating and antibacterial properties which can be used for therapeutic purposes. The high sulfur content in onions can help to restore hair follicles and stimulate natural hair restoration. As a hair loss treatment onions can be used as follows: Apply 1 teaspoon of fresh squeezed onion juice mixed with several teaspoons of apple juice directly onto the scalp. Massage your scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash your hair with a natural shampoo. Repeat daily. Since onion juice restores hair follicles and improves scalp circulation, you will experience dramatic improvement in hair thickness within a couple months.

Garlic: Garlic is used to treat many health problems. It has high levels of allicin, which is a sulfur compound. Garlic is good for your body because it normalizes blood pressure, stimulates metabolic processes and helps to remove toxins. It is good for your scalp and hair because it stimulates the flow of blood to the scalp which nourishes the hair follicles and encourages growth. It adds body and shine. If you have an itchy scalp, garlic will provide relief. Use garlic as follows: 1 hour before bedtime, slice open a clove of garlic and rub it on the hair loss area. After an hour, massage the scalp with olive oil. Put on a shower cap and go to bed. In the morning, shampoo your hair with a natural shampoo. Repeat this remedy for a few weeks.

If you do not care for the smell of garlic or onions, here is a recipe to incorporate garlic and suppress the odor: To 1 teaspoon of garlic extract, add: 1 teaspoon aloe vera, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 ½ teaspoon of chamomile tea, 1 egg yolk and several teaspoons of water. Massage this blend into your scalp and leave on for 30 minutes. Then wash your hair. Your hair will improve within a couple months.
