100% Effective DIY Garlic Hair Oil For Super Hair Growth

Garlic has anti-microbial properties that help kill germs and bacteria, which are responsible for causing damage to the scalp and limiting hair growth. Raw garlic is known to be rich in vitamin C which is great for promoting hair health. It also boosts collagen production which helps stimulate hair growth.

Garlic also contains sulfur, sulfur is found in most hair care products, and shampoos and it is the foundation of keratin. Keratin helps stimulate hair growth very fast so you are going to see very good results by applying this garlic hair oil to your hair.

1. Garlic & Castor Oil For Hair Growth


  • 8 Garlic cloves peeled
  • A Teaspoon of Coconut oil ( you can also use Olive oil, mustard oil, grapeseed oil, or Jojoba oil if coconut oil is not available)
  • A Teaspoon of Castor oil

Using only garlic water can cause skin irritation due to its strength, therefore, I highly recommend mixing it with other carrier oils to reduce your chances of experiencing scalp or skin irritation.

Preparation & Application:

Add the garlic into a high-speed blender and blend it into a paste, use a cheesecloth or a muslin cloth to squeeze out the garlic juice into a clean bowl. Add in your oils and mix well until you have an even mixture.

Next, comb your hair and make sure that there are no tangles, using a chunk of cotton, soak it into the oil and begin to apply it to your scalp. Make sure to apply it all over your scalp evenly. Leave it in for up to 30 minutes before washing it off with your favorite herbal shampoo.

Repeat this remedy 2-3 times per week to get the hair of your dreams. I also recommend adding a few essential oils to your mixture to reduce the strong scent of the garlic. Peppermint or rosemary essential oils are great for hair growth as well.

How It Works

Garlic oil is rich in B-6 and C, manganese, and selenium and works by penetrating down into the hair bulb. As it warms the scalp it promotes blood flow to the capillaries, encouraging new hair to grow while preventing existing hair from falling out. For a healthy head of hair, dilute garlic oil with sweet almond or argan oil and massage directly into the scalp.

2. Garlic  & Honey For Hair Growth

Using honey in your hair helps strengthen your hair follicles and promotes new hair growth. Adding honey to garlic oil will reduce hair breakage and provide essential nutrients to your hair.


  • 1 Tablespoon Of organic honey
  • 8 Cloves of garlic


Extract the juice from the garlic using the method above and mix in the honey. Apply it to your hair and leave it in for up to 20 minutes. 

3. Garlic & Ginger For Hair Growth

Mixing ginger with garlic and applying it to your hair regularly will help stimulate hair growth and improve circulation in the scalp. Ginger helps restore moisture in the scalp and strengthen your hair due to its many vitamins, mineral, and fatty acids.


  • 2-inch piece of ginger
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup carrier oil


Add the garlic and ginger into a blender and blend to make a fine paste. Next heat your carrier oil and throw in your blended mixture of garlic and ginger. Continue stirring on low heat until your mixture begins to turn brown in color. Cut off the heat and let it sit aside to cool.

Strain the mixture and throw away the pulp. Apply this oil to your scalp and make sure to massage it for up to 15 minutes. Leave the oil in your hair for an extra 30 minutes before washing it off with a mild shampoo.

Can You Leave Garlic Oil In Your Hair Overnight?

Raw garlic oil can also cause allergies for some people so doing a skin patch test is essential when using this remedy.
