Hair issues, such as hair loss or thinning, excessive frizz, dryness, or oiliness, as well as scalp conditions, including dandruff, scaly, or itchy skin plague, millions of Americans each day. Aloe vera shampoos and conditioners have been around for years and serves as an ideal alternative to commercial hair products. For gorgeous, healthy looking hair, try natural aloe vera.

Promoting Hair Growth

Aloe vera can be used as a safe and natural treatment to prevent hair loss. It is great for both men and women to promote new hair growth in places that have experienced hair loss or significant thinning. Aloe vera stimulates the production of new hair and may even lessen the effects of Alopecia.

Nourishing Shampoo

The aloe vera plant is packed with essential vitamins and minerals that aid in restoring hair’s strength and beauty. When combined with coconut milk and oils, such as wheat germ oil or jojoba, aloe vera gel can make a revitalizing shampoo that not only works to prevent hair loss but also promotes new hair growth. Aloe vera gel can be added to favorite shampoos to deliver nourishing benefits. When combined with herbs, essential oils, and plant extracts, the nutritive benefits of aloe vera are multiplied exponentially.

Reducing Dandruff

The natural enzymes found in aloe vera can soothe and moisturize the scalp, helping to eliminate the scaly dryness that causes dandruff. It also helps to increase blood circulation in the scalp, which works to stimulate the production of moisturizing oils. Aloe vera reduces the dry, itchy feeling that accompanies dryness or oiliness. It keeps the hair’s natural oils in balance to prevent excessively oily or dry scalp. Aloe vera also brings a refreshing and cooling sensation to the scalp.

Natural Conditioner

Aloe vera acts as a natural conditioning agent that restores the hair’s sheen, luster, and shine. It not only makes the hair soft, but it also enhances strength and suppleness. It naturally combats frizz but does not have the greasy buildup that many hair care products leave behind.

Regardless of the scalp or hair’s condition, whether too oily or too dry, aloe vera can restore the proper balance. It has amazing results for promoting hair growth as well as staving off hair loss. Say goodbye to expensive and often ineffective hair treatments. Try aloe vera, nature’s own remedy for restoring health and beauty to hair.

Ladies, do you use aloe vera in your regimen? How does it work for you?

I’ve been natural since 2011 and kept my hair in braids because when I did the big chop and my hair began to grow out, I couldn’t take the super thick courseness of my hair. I am beginning to wear my hair out now because of the damage the braids are doing to my hair, and I discovered natural aloe Vera gel works amazing on my course hair! I worried a little because it changed the texture of my hair when I use a lot just to get through the tangles. But aloe Vera makes my hair so much more… Read more »

When do you incorporate aloe Vera juice in the LOC method


I use a mixture of aloe Vera juice and water as my leave in then follow up with with my cream and then sweet almond oil. The aloe Vera juice leaves my hair very soft and the best part is my scalp is no longer dry and itchy. I also use it as a daily moisturizer, if need be.

I use aloe vera juice, rose water, almond oil and grape seed oil. place a little in a spray bottle and spray my hair every day with the mixture. My hair is so soft and manageable. I’ve been using it for the past year and my hair loves it

[…] Prevents dandruff because of natural enzymes […]


I use 100% pure aloe vera juice alone to detangle my hair. It works great. I also spritz it on my scalp if it feels itchy before I’m ready to wash it (with African black soap).


First time i applied it, my hair was so soft and untangled i loved it!!

After I change my hair from straight to curly, now my hair is hard and is not smooth in touching, is aloe can help?

Yes .If you’re using it for dry skin or rash, epidermis prmolebs, then don’t drink it- spread the broken leaves on your skin. Use for a few days a few times a day (apply 3x daily). See how it goes. If it doesn’t grow in your area, maybe check or an iternet health-foods store I cannot believe, nor ever heard that Aloe Vera is good for arthristis, interesting .but some plants have esterfied fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation, like MonaVie, for example.For info on MonaVie (acai +18 others), go to and type monavie , and mona vie… Read more »

Thanks for this great reminder. I did a pre-conditioner tonight with my aloe juice and my hair felt great! Such a simple addition to make my hair happy!


So, being the spender I am, I bought the aloe vera plant in all of its glory and I don’t know what to do with it, any tips before this stuff gets old?


Not sure how to extract it, but if not done correctly it can become poisonous. Try to google it


If you have the plant, cut off one leave and cut the leave in the middle so that you have two flat pieces. If the leaf is big, cut it so that it is easier to apply it right onto your scalp. Of course, just hold the the piece so that the “juice” directly in contact with your head. Do the whole head and let it sit the whole afternoon. Me, after my pregnancy, I lost so much hair that I did thst everyday and it worked fine.


By the way, my in laws had the backyard full of aloe. Once they planted one plant, it grew a lot more.


Better late than never, I guess. Just be sure to peel all the skin off, blend the gel and use. Blended aloe skin is extra difficult to get out of natural hair. It also burns like the dickens if you have sensitivities like I do. Store in the fridge no longer than one week.

how long do i need to continue the aloe vera treatment for hai fall?????how will i use aloe vera gel on my hair for hairfall?????


certainly like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on sevreal of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth nevertheless I’ll definitely come again again.


Since when is website spelled web-site?!?! You want to criticize someone for spelling yet you clearly have spelling and grammatical errors yourself?! I find that troublesome.


Well, I’m sorry to inform you of your problems with spelling. It’s “several” and “Website” Maybe you shouldn’t be so critical, misspellings aren’t the end of the world. With love and happy journey.


my hair is recently falling very much..would u plZ tell me how long i need to keep aloe vera gel
on my hair and after using do i need to wash my hair????plz help me…


You need to do a protein treatment, apply plain greek yogurt onto the hair. Let it sit for 30 min under a cap, rinse and then follow w/ a DC. Use a moisturizing conditioner and apply EVOO all over your hair. Sit under cap for an hour or more, let air dry till slightly damp and then apply your products.


You don’t say anything about aloe vera gel. Is it included in this regimen?


You can include it if you prefer, I don’t use gel on my hair, but it works fine too.
