Aloe Vera Juice down to the Science!

About:

Aloe vera is basically prized for its medicinal properties. It has been used for a long time to heal a number of health conditions, right from burns, skin infections, digestive ailments like, indigestion, constipation and heartburn to joint pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. Aloe vera, its gel, as well as the juice is highly valued for its benefits for the skin. It is widely used for soothing dry skin, skin rash, acne and for preventing wrinkles and fine lines. The benefits of aloe vera juice on hair are equally interesting. It can help to get rid of a number of problems associated with hair and the scalp. Let's find out some more facts on aloe vera benefits for hair.

Hair Benefits:

Hair problems like, excessive hair fall, dry and damaged hair are quite common these days, owing to high levels of pollution, as well as poor nutrition. Even injudicious use of hair styling products can also be held responsible for causing damage to hair. Aloe vera juice, with its excellent moisturizing properties can serve as a natural conditioner to deeply moisturize the hair strands. So, if you are struggling with dry, damaged and unmanageable frizzy hair, then aloe vera juice is the answer. You can use aloe vera juice to replace of your regular conditioner to make your hair silky, soft and smooth. It works as an excellent hair conditioner for dry and damaged hair.

Apart from moisturizing your hair, aloe vera can help to prevent hair loss. In fact, one of the most important benefits of aloe vera juice on hair is prevention of hair loss and stimulation of hair growth. The enzymes found in aloe vera gel and juice may act as hair growth stimulators. So, you can use aloe vera to promote hair growth. Along with promoting hair growth, it can help to control one of the most common scalp problems, known as dandruff. To get healthy hair and dandruff free scalp, you can apply the gel or juice of aloe vera on your scalp before taking shower, and keep it for about half an hour.

The soothing effect of the aloe vera can also prove effective for treating itchy scalp. Dandruff is one of the important factor that can cause hair loss, and by treating dandruff, aloe vera can help to reduce hair fall. In addition to these, aloe vera can be used for treating the condition known as, seborrhea, characterized by the excessive secretion of sebum. Excess 'sebum' or oil can get mixed with dirt to form crusts on the scalp, which can damage the hair follicles. Seborrhea is the cause of hair loss in many people, and they can use aloe vera for hair loss prevention. However, those suffering from severe seborrhea should seek medical attention instead of relying entirely on aloe vera to treat this condition.

Ways to Use Aloe Vera Juice:

You can mix the aloe vera gel with coconut milk and wheat germ oil. Wheatgerm oil is known for its excellent moisturizing properties. You can also use aloe vera juice to give your hair an overnight treatment. For this, you can use aloe vera juice alone or mix it with other natural ingredients like, olive oil. Mix both the ingredients and then wet your hair completely with the mixture. Let the hair dry naturally and then cover it up with a silk scarf or shower cap. The next day, rinse the hair completely or shampoo your hair as usual.



IMPORTANT:

What makes aloe vera juice so beneficial for hair care is the presence of some important nutrients like, amino acids, proteins, minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin A, C and E.

  4. You're definitely on the right track towards healthy hair. I remember buying my first product. I was very excited to use it. Here almost 11 months later and most of the products I use now are different, but I'm glad that I tried different products during my journey. Remember: Water is your hair's friend!!!

  5. Wow thank you so much for this info! I never knew that about Aloe Vera. I am a white mutt and my wife is black. She originally bought that exact Aloe Vera Juice bottle to drink but said it was too nasty to drink. I myself shave my head all the time. But stress combined with the fact that I wear headphones all the time is making me START to show pattern baldness in that spot.

    Adam Carolla had a rant where he explained that the people who have the longest hair are the ones that don't put ANYTHING in it. He explained that all these products are actually damaging our hair and skin and not helping it.

    I might just use Aloe Vera juice as my shampoo from now on. :)

  6. On a side note. I just got a sunburn the other day because I live in Vegas and went swimming and it took less than 2 hours (without sun block lotion) for my ass to get burned up. Aloe Vera is a great way to heal and soothe sun burn and it fixed the problem in 1 day!
