Aloe Vera is a plant that has been used for centuries, worldwide for its versatile properties and benefits. One specific benefit of aloe vera is speculated to be that of its apparent positive results on hair. These days, aloe vera has gained great popularity in salons and beauty products which promise that aloe vera juice is extremely helpful in promoting long, shiny and above all, healthy tresses.
Have you recently got a haircut, after which your hair seemed to cease growing? Or are you generally trying to go for a new look with long hair and growing impatient? Aloe Vera juice may be the answer. Although there is no scientific backing, it is sworn by beauticians that aloe Vera juice can help reverse hair loss and encourage hair growth. All you have to do is cut up fresh aloe vera, scrape off the gel inside it, put it in a blender until all the lumps are smooth and then gently massage into your hair! Leave the juice on your hair for 20 minutes and then wash off. You can even manually remove the gel/juice off an aloe vera leaf in the absence of a blender.
If you are one to suffer from persistent oily or greasy hair, then aloe Vera is here to help! You can use aloe Vera juice as a convenient and inexpensive home remedy to treat your oily condition by drying out your hair without damaging or making it brittle. All you have to do is mix fresh ale Vera juice with two parts of grapefruit juice or lemon juice and work this mixture through your hair. The acid from the grapefruit juice or lemon juice will help rid of excess oil without being too harsh on the scalp, while the aloe vera will help prevent over drying from the wipeout of oil, making your hair, oh so soft! For another tip, add a dollop or two to your shampoo and conditioner for when you go to wash your hair!
Another Aloe Vera benefit for hair is its ability to act as nature’s conditioner for treating coarse, dry and damaged hair as it is deeply moisturizing. It is advised to use the most pure concentration of aloe Vera juice in order to douse clean and freshly washed hair that allows the solution to air dry. This is extremely helpful as it will drench your hair in a therapeutic conditioner that will allow you to take a break from the wrath of heat styling – be it a hair straightener or one too many blow dries!
Since aloe vera is an effective moisturizer, it even helps reduce the scaly dryness that causes dandruff by moisturizing the scalp. Massaging your scalp with aloe vera juice helps stimulate the growth of natural moisturizing oil and increases the blood circulation in the scalp. This helps reduce that annoying itchy, dry sensation which brings on greasy and\or dry hair.
