Herbs For Hair : Aloe Vera

 There are several uses for Aloe Vera Juice.

Conditioner

 Use 1/4 cup aloe gel
 1/2 lemon juice. Mix in a few drops of your favorite essential oil(s) for fragrance and extra moisture. Apply after shampooing, leaving it on for three to five minutes.
Overnight Treatment 

For superb hydration, leave aloe vera juice in your hair overnight. You can mix it with cold-pressed oils such as olive or avocado for extra conditioning. Wet your hair with the mixture, put your hair in a shower cap, and drift off to sleep. In the morning, rinse well (if you used pure juice) or shampoo and condition (if you added oils).

Hair Loss
Apply aloe vera juice or gel directly to the scalp and massage it in. Leave it on for a few hours or overnight, and keep an eye out for new hair growth.
Dandruff
 Apply the juice or gel directly to your scalp, and rub it in well. You can add a few drops of tea tree oil for extra potency. Leave it on for 20-plus minutes before showering. Repeat this several times a week for two weeks, or until the problem goes away.
Irritated Scalp 
The gentle, soothing feeling of fresh aloe vera juice is wonderful for itchy, irritated or sunburned scalps. Break a leaf and squeeze it directly onto hair. Rub it gently into the scalp and leave in. Reapply whenever the irritation resurfaces.
How I use It
I apply it the night before washing the hair. I massage the juice thoroughly into dry hair and cover with my satin cap.

Don't forget to send me your review after using it.

  1. I am currently transitioning and aloe vera juice has been an excellent solution while detangling my new growth and relaxed ends! I pour some in a spray bottle with a little carrier oil of my choice then spritz and finger detangle. I use it as a leave-in as well. It really helps with the pH balance of our hair.
