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?

  1. 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?

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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 ebay.com 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 youtube.com and type monavie , and mona vie ; you’ll see about 5,000 videos or more!For ordering, please just let me know and reply to snowboardfreedom at yahoo.com; I will give you the steps to order if you like (acai is the main ingredient and is unpasteurized- it’s freeze-dried, and MOST POTENT, and VERY good for the body and the skin/scalp). It also saved me from 3 years of painful, dehabilitating and job-ending migraines (the glucosamine in it)!!snowboardfreedom@yahoo-JD

    • 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.
