It might be a little difficult to do the treatment if you have a weave in because you might not have complete access to your scalp. Coconut oil is good because it is very viscous (runny) when melted.

If you have super fine hair or if you want to try this on your hair under your weave, I would recommend using a lighter oil like Jojoba or Grapeseed.

Garlic and coconut oil is the business. I warmed my coconut oil up added come finely chopped garlic. Let that sit for a while then applied to scalp and hair. I let this sit on my hair for maybe 1-2 hours (forgot to add essential oil so the smell got pretty strong-but definitely worth it) and pooed/con. Stopped shedding and breakage instantly.

Okay, great! This was going to be my question. Will it work with an EO? I will mix this up today and use it next time I wash.

I am still luving this mixture. I use it as a prepoo everytime I wash my hair. After I did the first one I did a aphogee strong protein treamtent n let me tellu I was happy. B4 I had hair everywhere sink, floor all over me it jus blew everywhere. Now I have every minimal shedding at all. I have don 2 protein treatments. I think I had a overload of moisture.

My hair is luving this mixture. I also add the aphogee gloss which makes my hair feel soft and silky. I did add my keratin spray and leave in by aphogee bak to my regi and it has stopped my little breakage i was having.

Happy Growing ladies.

I've done this treatment three times and it doesn't work for me. Not sure what I may be doing wrong, if anything, but my hair is still shedding excessively. Maybe I should do a protein treatment first and then try it. I don't know.... It smelled good though.

That is wat worked 4 me. It did good but my hair did not go to complete decrease until the protien treatment. I actually did 2 protein treatments and the second decreased it alot. Now I hardly have any shedding. Now I have about 5-10 hairs where my hair was everywhere.

Ok, you have convinced me that is exactly what I need to do. I'll try a couple of protein treatments and see what results I get.

Your welcome KiniKakes
Amcwah (sp) I sometimes like to mix rosemary, peppermint, or tea tree oils.

Another thing...If you have REALLY fine hair go easy on the coconut oil or try mixing it with a lighter scalp beneficial oil like jojoba. Everyone's hair responds to certain treatments differently, but coconut oil is indeed a great scalp conditioner even if just for oiling. I have thought of making a garlic infused coconut oil w/rosemary and jasmine oils and oiling my scalp with this mixture. Off to the market!

Thanks T&F

I did the treatment twice so far the second time it was with the aphogee two step. I used garlic and evoo prepoo 25 mins. Even though I had on a cap it kept dripping so I put some of the evoo on my face no wonder Im single. I clarified with ORS clarifying shampoo then used aphogee for damaged hair. Then I did the two step and dc with yes to carrots 30 mins. At 13 wks post my hair is strong yet moisturized. It definitely stopped the shedding in its tracks. I only have a few hairs in the comb

I only wish I tried this idea sooner!

I used pure honey, coconut milk and pureed garlic. I parted my hair and applied it generously from root to tip. I want to assure you it smelled worse than you can imagine, but the results were wonderful. Almost no shedding at all and I am about 2month post I believe.

Thanks for this thread!
