How garlic can help your hair grow

How garlic can help your hair grow

Garlic? Really!

Garlic has been used for thousands of years to flavor foods and for medicinal purposes. But did you know it’s also been known to promote hair growth?

However, if you—like us—agree that the idea of crushing cloves of garlic and rubbing it into our scalps just does not sound like the most reasonable (nor pleasantly smelling) way to promote healthy hair and prevent hair loss, then you’re in luck!

The reason that garlic has been historically used to promote healthy hair is that it contains vitamins B6, B1, and B2 and is rich in nutrients, which are essential for hair growth.  

Why and how are these vitamins & nutrients important?

Well, this is because nutrition is a vital part of hair care and plays a significant role in hair growth. Poor nutrition, illness, stress, medications, smoking, etc., all play a role in the health of our hair, and experts believe that a diet high in certain vitamins can help reverse previous damage and prevent further damage being done to the hair and scalp.

Zinc plays a powerful role in the health of the hair shaft and helps strengthen the glands attached to your hair follicles that secrete oil. This helps to keep the hair follicle safe. Zinc also helps to keep hormone levels regulated, which is one of the reasons why it is so effective in preventing and treating hair loss. As a bonus, zinc may help eliminate dandruff on the scalp.

Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, helps to convert food into energy and supports healthy skin, hair, and nails. Vitamin B1 improves scalp circulation, prevents hair brittleness, and aids in the overall improvement of the hair.  

Riboflavin, or vitamin B2, is an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in hair growth. B2 contains a high concentration of nutrients that help prevent hair loss but also helps hair grow longer! B2 also helps dry hair by strengthening the hair follicles, creating stronger hair. B2 also activates vitamin B6, which is essential for hair growth.

Vitamin B6 is an important member of the vitamin B-complex family. It activates the enzymes and chemical reactions that start the metabolism of the hair proteins, keratin, and melanin. This, in turn, promotes hair growth and hair renewal. Vitamin B6 is also known to increase the flow of blood to the hair follicle and scalp and even helps to restore natural hair color due to its concentration of melanin. A diet deficient in B6 can often lead to hair loss.

Do I really need more garlic?

So, why are we telling you all of this? Because lucky for you all of the above nutrients that make garlic so effective for hair growth are available in our Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins.

Of course, it wouldn't hurt to include healthy amounts of garlic in your daily diet, and raw garlic is a great source of vitamin C known to be great for hair growth and boosting collagen production. But like many nutrients that we should be including in our diets, sometimes our schedules don't allow us to make time. This is where supplements come in. 

Our Revitalizing Blend was created to infuse damaged hair follicles with natural antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help it grow healthy. Best of all, there are NO synthetic fillers (such as magnesium stearate or titanium dioxide) in our pills. 

Final thoughts

People have known that garlic helps to promote hair growth and overall health, but of course, it's not a guaranteed cure. In fact, you would have to eat a lot of garlic to guarantee you receive the benefits. 

But this is why a supplement like Revitalizing Blend Hair Vitamins is the best choice to ensure you receive the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals your body and hair needs to thrive.  Adding the formulated blend of 20 natural ingredients and botanicals to your hair care routine is integral to creating the stimulating environment your hair needs to shine.
