    Now you need to massage your scalp with the garlic-honey using your fingers. Continue to rub until your scalp is fully covered with the mixture. Blood circulation will increase and your scalp will draw more blood while you rub the garlic-honey mixture on it. The garlic-honey mixture is a really good way to stimulate and treat your scalp effectively. It is an excellent home remedy and much better than using expensive chemicals that can often damage your hair and scalp from prolonged use.

    Make sure that you do not let the mixture dry in your hair because if it does, removing it will become extremely difficult. Leave the mixture applied to your scalp for approximately 10 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Wash your hair with shampoo to ensure complete removal of the mixture. You could even ask a friend to help you out while rinsing and shampooing your hair.
