3. Aloe and olive oil deep conditioner
Olive oil is great for the scalp it adds a natural shine to your strands and it is one of the only oils that penetrates the hair strand making it a staple for many of us.
4. Aloe vera and eggs deep conditioner*
If you find that you hair needs a little strength but you want some moisture too, follow the same process of scraping the gel out of the plant but this time, mix one egg with the gel (yolk and all). Mix well to ensure that both ingredients are combined then cover each strand root to tip with your mask.
The egg will strengthen the strands and the aloe vera will moisturize them at the same time. It gets no better than that.
5. Aloe and lemon juice cleanser
Need a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your hair of its moisture? Mix a few drops of lemon juice with aloe vera gel and apply it to your hair. Spread the mix all over your scalp and gently rub your scalp to get rid of build up and debris. Rinse your hair with warm water and then condition as normal.
6. Add aloe vera to your shampoo
If you want to amp up your shampoo and decrease the effects of it stripping your hair, mix your shampoo with the gel and wash your hair as normal.
7. Aloe Vera for hair loss
The aloe vera plant has a ton of nutrients including antioxidants that are great for stimulating hair growth and reducing fungus on the scalp.
To treat your scalp all you need is the gel, but we always recommend adding a few drops of essential oils* like peppermint oil* as well as some rose water. Stir the mix very well and apply it to your scalp as a serum treatment for at least 1 hour. Wash the mix out of your hair once the hour is up and condition as normal.
8. Styling gel
Aloe vera gel* has great hold, gives your hair a natural shine, and keeps your strands very healthy. Typically you can buy the styling gel in any grocery store but you can also make it yourself by scraping the gel out of the plant and adding essential oils* to create your own custom smell.
