Use The Aloe Vera Plant For Hair Growth And Retention

The Aloe Vera Plant For Hair Growth And Retention

Its funny how when you are young you tend to have less appreciation for the little things your mom and dad would do for you.

Part of it was a lack of understanding, essentially a childlike selfish mentality. This isn't a bad thing, the innocence of children is endearing really, I mean all they care about are curly haired dolls and riding their tricycles all day long.

Back when I was a child myself, on Saturday mornings I got my life literally, but I had no idea that's what I was getting until now. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.

My mom would pick the freshest aloe plant she could find, she would then slit it open and scrape out all the 'gook' (as I would call it) for what she called the best conditioner for my hair. I thought the process was absolutely gross but what did I know.

I had to stop reading. Isn’t this a professional website? What happened to spell check and proof reading? Too many run on sentences amongst other things. Nonetheless, the information here is very useful.
