8 Ways To Incorporate Aloe Vera Gel Into Your Healthy Hair Regimen

Eggwhite3. Aloe and olive oil deep conditioner

Mix together equal parts of aloe vera gel and olive oil and simply apply the mix to your hair for a wonderful 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.

This gel is amazing and if you have the chance to get your hands on this phenomenal plant you have at least 8 ways to make use of it! Do you use aloe vera in your regimen? Tell us how, below.

I love Aloe Vera!! I have it growing in my yard, lucky me 🙂
I use it as a spritzer, I add it to my deep conditioners and make custards with it.

Wow that’s amazing! I would love to grow my own aloe vera (and other herbs) in my yard, but not sure where to start lol but I absolutely love lily of the desert aloe vera gel from vitamin shoppe. I used it as my leave in conditioner after washing my hair and in my refresher mist. Since I have added that to my regimen, my hair has retained moisture! Especially during this hot weather

Hubby planted mines for me, its the only aloe vera I´ve used (natural is better) I thought you would need more moisture in the winter time not summer?
