Aloe Vera promotes hair growth

Aloe Vera contains enzymes that promote healthy hair growth. These  enzymes break down the sebum and dead scalp cells that hinder the proper penetration of nutrients in the hair.  Also, Aloe Vera’s alkalizing properties help bring the scalp and hair’s pH to a more desirable level, promoting further hair growth while retaining the hair’s moisture.

Aloe Vera adds luster to hair

Rinsing the hair with Aloe Vera juice makes hair relatively shinier and more lustrous. This is because the amino acids in Aloe Vera adds shine in the hair.  It also tames frizzy hair while  maintaining its silky and glossy feel.

Aloe Vera treats dandruff

Aloe Vera moisturizes dry scalp and eventually gets rid of the buildup of flakes on the scalp.  Also, Aloe Vera breaks down dead skin cells because of its anti-fungal properties. These dead skin cells are what fat-eating fungus malassezia feeds to thrive.    The alkalizing attributes of Aloe Vera counters the further growth and buildup of fungus.

Aloe Vera treats oily hair

Oil helps keep hair  healthy.  Excessive oil, though, makes hair heavy looking and unmanageable.  It also makes hair prone to itchiness. To add, too much oiliness reduces hair strength thus leads to breakage.  The excessive oil the hair secretes  may be because of unbearable stress, hormonal change, and even eating a large amount of oily food.  Improper hair care may also lead to oily hair.

As chemicals in some shampoo may make the problem more serious, aloe vera can be used as a rinse to treat oily scalp.  One just needs two parts lemon juice with one part aloe vera juice then apply to the shaft of the hair.  Use the mixture two times in a week for best results.

Aloe Vera treats hair allergy and inflammation

Regular use of Aloe Vera relieves the scalp of possible allergy and inflammation.  This is because  Aloe vera gel penetrates deeply into the scalp and maintains the pH  balance of the hair.  To add, Aloe Vera eliminate bacteria and even reduce swelling because of its antiseptic properties.

Aloe Vera conditions hair and scalp

The gel-like substance found in Aloe Vera leaf gives the same effect as that of keratin, the naturally occurring protein in hair cells.  Easier penetration of the gel-like substance into the hair is brought by the similarity of the chemical compounds found in keratin and Aloe Vera.

Aloe Vera as a leave-on conditioner

For a softer, more manageable, and beautiful hair, use Aloe Vera as a leave-on conditioner.  One needs to mix three tablespoons of Aloe Vera pulp with a tablespoon of jojoba oil. A coin-size amount of the DIY conditioner is enough to make the hair beautiful.
