The next time you massage your hair with coconut oil, add some garlic juice to it. Simply crush a few garlic cloves and mix with one teaspoon coconut oil, heat the mixture for a few minutes and stir well. Let it cool then apply to your scalp and massage. Repeat 2-3 times a week for best results.
• Rub it in
About an hour before bed tear a garlic clove and rub it on the areas of hair loss. Wait an hour then massage your scalp using olive oil. Cover your hair using a cap or hood and sleep, wash your hair upon waking. The repeated process is likely to regrow your hair.
