Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

Does Raw Garlic Promote Hair Growth?

One fact about garlic is undisputed: it smells very, very strong.

While there have been no significant studies on the effect of garlic on hair loss as of August 2009, scientists have studied the positive effects of onion juice on hair regrowth.

Processed Juice vs. Fresh Juice
