4 Benefits of Aloe Vera for Hair
Healthy hair shouldn’t just look the part- it should feel great, too. With all the unfortunate damage our hair faces from weather, styling tools and products, it’s hard to find the right solution that can be the hero our locks are looking for. Thankfully, Aloe Vera is a natural ingredient that can help fight countless hair issues without breaking the bank.
Because of its various healing nutrients, Aloe Vera is a plant species often used in various herbal medicines. Aloe Vera is rich in amino acids, vitamin A, folic acid and vitamin C. While it seems like just about everybody knows Aloe Vera can be used as a go-to solution for sun burn relief, who knew you could use this soothing gel for damage relief for your hair, too? Read on to find out how Aloe Vera can be utilized as much more than a skin treatment, and why we love it for fighting hair damage, too.
Aloe Vera as a Hair Treatment
Aloe Vera can be used in dandruff treatment and prevention. Just like Aloe Vera soothes dry skin from a sun burn, it can also moisturize a dry scalp, which helps to alleviate the presence of pesky flakes. Treating a flaky scalp is also a key factor in eliminating dandruff all together.
2. Oily Hair
Treating dry hair can be often be accompanied by undesirable oil build-up. Thankfully, Aloe Vera can be used as a rinse for oily hair without additional, unwanted effects like making hair dry or brittle. The rinse is easy to make and only needs one part aloe vera juice with two parts lemon juice, then apply to the shaft of the hair.
3. Frizzy Hair
The amino acids in Aloe Vera can promote strength and add shine to your hair. As a result, it helps to tame frizzy hair while still leaving your locks silky and glossy. Since Aloe Vera also helps lock in moisture to improve the smoothness of hair, it tends to also work well as a detangler, too.
4. Hair Loss
Aloe Vera can help prevent frequent hair loss and promote hair growth. With hair loss, using Aloe Vera regularly will rejuvenate the hair follicles and reduce thinning. Along with hair loss prevention, Aloe Vera enzymes promote hair growth by helping your locks retain moisture, and by clearing dead skin cells off of your scalp.

I would go with the gel over the aloe vera.
How often should I wash my hair using Aloe Vera shampoo on a weekly basis?
Hi Adam, as often as you would like.

Everyone is different and it really depends on how damaged your hair is but you should be able to see at least a little bit of an effect instantly!

Could you please tell me that how I can use aloe Vera on my face to get rid of my pimples . and tell me how to apply aloe Vera on hair
We cannot advise on how to use Aloe on it’s own, however here is a DIY blog I found that might have some tips for you: http://food.ndtv.com/beauty/6-amazing-benefits-aloe-vera-hair-skin-weight-loss-1221869
Also, all of our shampoos as well as our Facial Scrub contain Aloe Vera so you could use those to help with your concerns!
Can aloe vera possibly cause dry hair if not rinsed?
More than likely not, however it would cause it to be used as a styling gel type agent.
Is there any place that i can buy this product please help me appreciated..thanks!
Here is a link to our locations page: http://shop.morroccomethod.com/Locations. You can type in your location and it can find the closest location to you.
Some store-bought aloe vera gel contains alcohol to preserve it, so I wouldn’t use that on my hair or my skin.
Did not know you could use aloe vera for your hair, I just use it for my acne. Going to give it a try!
Thank you for such an awesome article dear and from my experience with sheamoisture I want to share that i am using detangler for my hair Because this extra-moisturizing properties of this hair detangler come from raw Shea butter that deeply penetrates while restoring dry scalp and hair.
Hie….Its a very informative article. I regularly use Aloe Vera gel on my skin and hairs and every time i am surprised with the results. My skin and hairs are getting better day by day.
