Aloe Vera, or the ‘wonder plant’ as it is often called, is a succulent cactus-like plant that grows in arid climates. It is most commonly known for its ability to moisturize and revitalize as it is comprised of 95% water. The ‘wonder plant’ is also a great source of nutrients, as it provides a number of essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Here are some ways the ‘wonder plant’ can be used to help revive your hair, bring back its luster, and moisturize like no other product on the market, naturally.
1. The Ultimate Moisturizer
Mix 1 Tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel into your conditioner, or nix the conditioner altogether and let the Aloe revitalize your hair as it replenishes its moisture.
2. The Need For Speed
Does it take forever for your hair to grow? The ‘wonder plant’ provides hundreds of nutrients and enzymes that stimulate hair growth. Try gently massaging some Aloe Vera Gel into your scalp and letting it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and a mild shampoo. Repeat as needed. You can also try adding some concentrated Aloe Vera juice to your favorite smoothie. Whether applied externally or taken orally, extracts from the ‘wonder plant’ can help speed up hair growth.
3. Thicker is Better
Thin hair is more prone to damage and breaking and looks a little wimpy in a ponytail. Beef up your locks by adding a little Aloe Vera into your life. Try a daily supplement, or stick with some Aloe Gel rubbed into your scalp and transform those puny ponies into luscious locks.
4. Shine, Shine, Shine
Wish you had shiny locks? No problem! Aloe Vera’s moisture-rich composition will help nourish your hair and help you achieve that shiny hair you’ve always dreamed of in no time.
5. Flake those Flakes
Many of the hair products on the market dry out your scalp and cause dandruff. The ‘wonder plant’ can help reduce dandruff, naturally. Try combining a few tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel with some coconut milk and wheat germ oil. Massage into your scalp. Rinse. Repeat as needed.
6. Less is More? No way!
Did you know that Aloe Vera (in the form of a gel applied topically, or as a dietary supplement in the form of a capsule or concentrated juice) can help prevent hair loss? Among its other super-powers, the ‘wonder plant’ is an anti-inflammatory which helps stop hair loss.
Incorporate some Aloe Vera into your lifestyle and your beauty routine and watch as your hair is naturally rejuvenated.
