Why use aloe vera for your hair?
The moisturizing virtues of aloe vera
Many women don’t know it but hair nutrition and hydration are two different things! While nutrition requires fatty products, hydration of your hair needs aqueous products. Unfortunately, the moisturizing step is ignored by many women, to the detriment of their hair. Rich in water, the Aloe Vera’s gel moisturizes and strengthens hair: applied on wet lengths, it retains water in the hair fiber, which helps preserve their quality, moisturizes in depth, and prevents the appearance of split-ends.
An all-in-one plant
Aloe Vera is also used to fight the damaged of your hair because it’s a powerful antifungal. By reducing the production of sebum in the scalp, responsible for the dandruff formation, the plant prevents its appearance.
Aloe Vera is also used to accelerate your hair growth: in addition to various vitamins it contains (A, B6, and B9), it allows you to purify the scalp and the dead cells. Once it’s no longer obstructed, your hair can easily grow and faster than usual!
But that’s not all! Aloe vera is very used for curly and frizzy hair. It helps to redraw curls and to balance hair volume, while moisturizing curly hair, which generally produces less sebum than straight and wavy hair.
How to use aloe vera on your hair
If you are now convinced and want to use this plant for your hair, you have two options. You can use the pure gel of Aloe Vera or products containing Aloe Vera. The product application will depend on your goal!
The use of natural gel
The natural gel extracted from the Aloe Vera plant can be used in different ways. If you want to moisturize your hair, we recommend to apply the gel on wet lengths and let it for one hour. This mask will give softness and shine to your hair. For those who don’t have time, mix your nourishing oil with the natural Aloe Vera gel to nourish and hydrate your hair with the same mask.
Applied on the scalp, the pure gel helps stop the itching, relieve irritation and prevent the appearance of dandruff.
If you use the natural Aloe Vera gel after your shower, a small amount can help you control your hair or structure your curls.
The use of the products composed with Aloe Vera
You can choose products with Aloe Vera. However, it will be necessary to pay attention to the composition of these products: if the percentage of Aloe Vera is too low, you will not enjoy all its benefits. You should focus on care products and shampoos whose ingredients are more natural.
