Two Home Remedy for hair Shedding

This is actually about one solution but two different methods . I previously wrote about this on my bubblews blog read here .

Adding garlic to your deep conditioner . This will help to reduce excess shedding .

Crush couple cubes of garlic or you can add garlic powder . You can pour the conditioner you plan on using for this treatment in a separate container then add your garlic powder .

You can do this treatment over night , meaning letting it sit on your head with plastic shower cap for the night or in the morning for couple hours .

Rinse the garlic conditioner from your hair and then wash away scent with mild shampoo .

Now conditioner your hair with your regular shampoo .

Follow this treatment for couple days and you will have your result in no time .

If you have a bald spot rub cut garlic right on it twice a day until it show improvement .

Garlic can prevent or reduce hair loss by providing nourishment to the hair follicles which may be blocked by DHT and sometimes killing germs that may have infect the scalp .

Here is option two 

Making garlic oil

This is done by also cutting the garlic in cubes and place them in a glass container with top , add your virgin olive oil to the garlic cubes .

Leave this for up to 2 days before adding to your scalp .

Garlic powder can also be used in the same way .

Do this every other night and rinse your hair with conditioner the next day to get rid of the scent . Although the scent wont be as strong because its mix with olive oil .

Do this for two weeks nightly or every other night before bed and you will see instant improvement .


Note : Garlic will not cure all hair loss . ..

I am now 20 months post relax (hooray ) , my natural hair is crazy long and thick .  I was originally planning to go for two year transition time but since my relax hair is still pretty long (longer that my natural hair) I may go to three years without chopping just small trims until I am there .
