Hokey suggestions to improve your hair

I was just reading an article in India Times today, where they discussed recommendations for hair care.

The first suggestion, I agree with, that you should do Hot Oil Treatments on your hair.   I used to do this religiously  They state that you should take these hot oils and put on a shower cap and leave it on for an hour, then shampoo your hair.

Once again, I digress to an earlier post of how realistic this is.  I would do it in the shower, but the oil only stayed in my hair for about 5 minutes.

Another suggestion is to rub your scalp with either garlic juice, onion juice or ginger juice; leave it on overnight and wash it thoroughly in the morning.  Again, how realistic is that?

The third suggestion is getting a scalp massage.  The thought is that massage keeps the hair follicle stimulated.

Here's one that I never heard before "Apply warm green tea (two bags brewed in one cup of water) on your scalp and leave this mixture on for an hour and then rinse."  They suggest that tea has antioxidants that will increase hair growth, but again, how realistic is to keep it on for an hour?

And the fifth suggestion is to practice meditation.  Because the biggest reasons people lose hair is stress and tension, it's believed that meditating will help reduce stress, and therefore help in keeping your hair.

This one seems hokey, but if meditation works for you, why not try it.  

Maybe you can meditate while food sits on your head for an hour?

What do you think of these suggestions?  
Have you tried any?  
Have they worked?
