DIY Garlic Shampoo:
Purchase good quality garlic, the one which are purple in color are preferred but if can’t find it then use white one only. You’ll need around 10-15 big garlic gloves, peel them and wash in running water.

Before washing, oil-massage your hair and let the oil penetrate for around one hour. Shake the shampoo bottle well and take small amount to lather up.
