Has anyone tried it. I recently discovered I have a bald spot due to alopecia, which is already growing back on it's own, but I would love to help it along it's way.

What about garlic and onion oil? Any protein sensitivity issues?

Thank you.

    Black tea rinses really do help with shedding, (in a much less stinkier way) like garlic or onion. Careful though, for some, the black tea rinses have a bit of protein effects and may leave your hair a bit dry and rough, but its usually gone once you condition over it. When I rinse with black tea, my hair instantly feels stronger

    Black tea rinses are usually for shedding though, but it may help with retaining growth. So, don't expect it to do things it doesn't
