4 Hair Benefits of Aloe Vera

Avatar • Jan 19, 2012

Via AloeVera.com

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?

I LOVE aloe vera. I use the gel more often than the juice since it has a thicker consistency. I use it once a week for my pre-poo (aloe vera and castor oil) and in my leave-in conditioner (Kimmaytube’s leave-in recipe). It’s also very useful for burns. Takes the pain, redness, and soreness away in a snap!

I love both Aloe Vera Juice and Gel. I use it everyday…after I cowash, in my weekly deep conditioning treatments, mixed with my leave in conditioner, in my spritz. It leaves my hair soooo soft and fluffy. I sometimes even drink some daily mixed with my favorite juice. It’s awesome!

AVJ makes my finger detangling session a breeze, I use it after I’ve worn a twist out for a few days and before I wash my hair.

Don’t sleep on this as a detangler, it’s also reasonably priced.

Definitely use no more than 5 drops of essential oil to every 3–4 ozs of base oil. Unless the essential oil is already blended in a base oil. The ingredients list will give you the details. Examples of base oils are grapeseed, jojoba, coconut, castor and olive oils. Essential oils would be peppermint, lavender, rose, you get the drift. You may want to test the essential oils for sensitivities, especially if you are pregnant or have certain illnesses. There are websites that can educate you if you Google pros and cons of particular ones. Hope this helps!

I just called aloe vera juice/gel my “new BF”. I use it as the ‘water’ in my spray bottle, and it’s really improved the moisture retention in my hair so far this winter. I started using it with water, but switched to all aloe(along with rosemary and castor oil) this past summer, and the results are stellar.

I use organic aloe vera juice from the health food store with absolutely no issues. Beautiful results. When I used it straight from the leaf,..burning, itchy scalp and headaches within 10 minutes. I have sensitive skin and crazy allergies and am sure the production process refined the aloe somewhat. If you haven’t tried Natalie’s suggestion by now, I’d suggest a test patch just in case. Just because a product is natural doesn’t mean you may not be sensitive to it. Duh, hayfever anyone?

I use it everyday for moisture. I use the gel from Fruit of the Earth. I mix it with water.…I like more gel to water, but not too much, you don’t want sticky hair. I usually spray my hair with it every morning and I ‘m good for the rest of the day. I also use it to detangle and twists.…it makes nice, soft, fluffy twists with a nice hold, and doesn’t cause a lot of buildup.

Don’t see why not. Experiment, you never know what you’ll come up with. It’s fun being a mixtress! I use tea instead of water to make my flax seed gel. I steep a chamomile tea bag in my hot water that has already been measured and make my gel. It smells great and my hair loves it.

Just a few questions ladies. Doesn’t the aloe vera juice, after using it for a few weeks, leave your hair sooooo soft and so fluffy (I definitely love that property) that you might come to think that it killed your coarseness? I used to use AVJ as leavein (Kimmaytube leavein) after washing sessions (on sundays, every 2 weeks) and remoisturize with the rest of my AVJ IF necessary once a week. It just kept on amazing me how fluffy my hair got with it. I got scared for a while and stopped using it (it’s been 3 weeks now) because… Read more »

Keep using it. Aloe vera brings your hair to it’s optimal moisture balance. It therefore behaves the way it is supposed to under the best conditions. When you hair is dry, it gets brittle/coarse so there is not texture change as much as it is your hair getting exactly what it needs in order to behave as it was intended to.

I use a 50/50 blend of aloe gel and lock butter to palm roll my daughter’s locks. The lock butter is too beeswaxy and attracts dirt to her hair on its own. But cut with aloe gel, it has just the right weight and hold to keep her locs nice for about a month before we re-roll. We wash with a good clarifying shampoo to take care of that beeswax and the aloe gel gives the locs a good condition too.

I make my gel fresh straight from the plant. I remove and the outer green skin and retain the inner gel membrane which I liquidify in a blender with a bit of lemon juice (to prevent the gel from oxidizing). I strain mine thru a fine cotton cloth sieve (got it at an Asian grocery for straining tea) and that removes all the white particles from the gel. I store the gel in an airtight glass jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I sometimes add grapefruit seed extract too if I wish to keep it longer.

I have 4a hair (midneck lenght if stretched with my fingers) and a combination of 3 tbps aloe vera gel mixed with 1 tbsp jojoba oil is an excellent leave in and curl styler for me. I used all on freshly washed/conditioned hair (soaking wet) and fingercomb it through my hair; then let my hair air dry. It defines my curls like any storebought gel, and, which I love, provides a very soft hold (no crunch). Try it out.

Nigeria, i use a similar recipe but as a combined leavein and gel. For my 4a midneck length hair (if stretched with finger so it now looks more like a curly afro), i use 3 tbsp avg plus 1 tbsp jojoba oil plus this time 1 tbsp glycerin. My hair loves glycerin and adding it totally removed the slight hold i ended up noticing on my hair. Kind of a soft hold one but i dont like holds at all so the glycerine made my hair even more silky soft. U can skip the glycerin though! I loved it but… Read more »

Twice I’ve cut aloe vera leaf and put in the blender with almond oil and some of my conditioner. I love the results after I rinse my hair: so shiny, moisturized, light and fluffy. The first time I added some leave-in conditioner in my hair and let my hair air-dry in big twist but when I took the twist out my hair was FULL of FLAKES! The second time, after I rinse the aloe vera mixture I did the twist with no product and I still had flakes! Has this happened to anyone? I only use the inside clear part… Read more »

To remove the white particles from the gel, you have to strain the gel after u blend it. Try using a cloth sieve or a cotton kitchen towel.

I have recently started spritzing my hair with a water/aloe mixture before braiding it up at night for a braid out, to re-wet my hair when roller setting, to assist with detangling, or to simply moisturize my hair and i LOVE it. My nape is super sensitive and dry and would simply break off from braid outs but I have not had that problem since i’ve been using the allow and water. It has really been amazing and I’m looking forward to seeing just how much length I can retain.

Identifying and treating the underlying cause of itchy skin is important for long-term relief. Itchy skin treatments include medications, wet dressings and light therapy. Self-care measures, including anti-itch products and cool baths, can also help. :..*-

Aloe vera juice is very beneficial and will promote hair growth. Not sure how to extract from the plant itself, if not done properly it can be poisonous. If you can purchase some Lily of the Desert AVJ. Put in a spray bottle w/ distilled water and a few drops of castor oil. If you keep the hair braided and spray regularly you will begin to notice growth

Hi:
I use the aloe juice or gel in my hair right after I shampoo, just rub it on my scalp, massage and through my hair. I let it air dry. It has helped my hair a lot. No more itching and it started to grow after adding it to my castor oil.

Yes, relaxed heads should use as many natural products as possible to help retain their length. I don’t remember if it helped shedding, but I was able to grow my hair best whenever I have aloe vera gel in my regime. (And this was when I was relaxed.) I used it as a leave in or moisturizer mixed with oils like castor oil and coconut oil.

But, if the AVJ is to be refrigerated, will it not go rancid/smell if left on the hair? I bought of bottle of AVJ, mixed it with distilled water, and castor oil and spritzed some on my hair. I left the mixture in the spray bottle for a few days (unrefrigerated) and it turned blackish (?mold). I haven’t used AVJ since then. Any thoughts on this?

Raya

Once you mix it and no longer refrigerate it will go bad. It’s best not to mix it w/ anything and keep it refrigerated. First apply the AVJ by itself and then add your other products to your hair separately.

I recently had some serious, unexplained and aggressive hair loss. It was so bad that I tried Rogaine. I ended up experiencing partial blindness because of the Rogaine. This video explains what happened;

I am now using an aloe vera gel/ water spritz once a day or every other day. Then, I seal that in with my black castor oil mix. Now my hair has completely grown back in. Aloe vera gel has definitely been a miracle worker for me!

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.

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… Read more »
