When it comes to natural remedies to aid your beauty regimen there are few plants that come close to the juggernaut that is Aloe Vera. Widely used as a medicinal plant, Aloe can be used on the hair, ingested for internal usage and externally to treat skin conditions. If that’s not enough to convince you to add this plant to your regimen the following points definitely will!
Hair Growth promoter
One of the major selling points of Aloe is its ability to increase hair growth in some individuals. This is due mainly to the plants ability to unclog pores, thus creating a fertile environment for new hair to thrive. This fertile environment is further developed by the plants ability to balance out the pH of the hair.
Aloe Vera is a great conditioner because it is able to add additional moisture to your hair. It can be used on its own or added to other hair products or oils to produce a conditioner that is able to combat dryness. This moisture is important as many curly and kinky hair textures often struggle with maintaining their moisture/protein balance. This is especially true of those who have low porosity hair where moisture is difficult to absorb in to the strand. As Allow vera has a low PH it helps to close the hair cuticle locking any moisture in and making the hair appear more shiny. It can also have the effect of minimising frizz thus increases the manageability of your hair overall.
