One of the easiest hair growth treatments you can apply daily is using garlic and olive oil, but I’m not going to show you a garlic oil recipe, although it’s extremely efficient for hair growth, what I’m going to show you is how to use garlic and olive oil for maximum hair growth, not just a few millimeters a month.

You must understand that when you strip garlic from its fibers and its pulp, and only use the oil, you are going to deprive your skin and scalp from huge nutrition that is going to increase hair growth and hair roots’ simulation.

This is why the garlic and olive oil recipe you are going to read about in this post relies on using whole cloves and not just the oil!

Why is garlic and olive oil efficient for hair growth?

It’s because garlic is going to add highly essential nutrients to your scalp which are going to stimulate the blood flow in it and are also going to protect your hair follicles, on the long run, this is going to stimulate hair growth and increase the protection of your hair while growing, which means that your hair is going to mature fully and look thick and healthy, and this recipe is also going to avoid much shedding to your weak hair.

The next benefit for using garlic and olive oil for hair growth is that olive oil is an extremely antiseptic and antifungal ingredient, it’s going to get rid of funguses and bacteria on your scalp that are extremely damaging to your hair follicles, in fact most hair loss is going to happen because your hair follicles are going to be exhausted and inflamed.

Dermatologists call this scalp folliculitis and it’s when you start feeling itchy and even developing small dandruffs, both garlic and olive oil are going to help you to grow stronger and healthier hair much more quickly.

Here is how to prepare an easy garlic and olive oil recipe for hair growth:

You will need at least a quarter of a cup of extra virgin olive oil.

Don’t use cheap olive oil, it’s not harmful for your hair but it’s not very nutritious either!

You need to only use extra virgin olive oil, because it will contain the most antioxidants and the most helpful nutrients for your hair and scalp.

The next ingredient you will need is of course garlic, you will need at least ten garlic cloves.

I’ve already talked about the difference between each variety of garlic, but I’m going to tell you that the best garlic to use for your hair growth is purple garlic, don’t try to use white or yellow garlic, they are both weak in comparison to purple garlic and even if they may smell the same, purple garlic is much more powerful and much more potent when it comes to antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Now, let’s prepare the best garlic and olive oil recipe to use for your hair growth:

First of all, choose only the best and “fleshiest” garlic cloves, don’t use weak and bruised ones, then peel them and crush them, then add them to a food processor and mix blend with olive oil.

Start blending until you get a very thick and rich paste.

When you are done, take your garlic paste and put it in a dark and opaque glass mason jar.

Every day, apply this garlic and olive oil are mixture to your hair and scalp, you will not believe the hair growth you are going to notice and within a short period of time, your hair is going to look wonderful and extremely beautiful.

This is how to use garlic and olive oil for hair growth, of course, there are other recipes in this website that uses the same ingredients with many other essential oils such as tea tree oil and peppermint oil, but this is the most basic garlic recipe for hair growth, it is also the easiest one.
