Aloe Vera Juice Vs Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera juiceWhich is better for your hair, gel or juice?

Neither is better really, they are both great, but they serve different uses due to their natural composition. Honestly depending on what you need it for you might find yourself with both the gel and the juice in your stash.

Aloe vera juice like the gel, is sold commercially so it isn’t hard to find, Walmart has huge tubs of it in the produce isle now making it very accessible for the general public. The juice is the ultimate moisturizer filled with vitamins and minerals, making it perfect for use on your hair.

To use the juice on your hair all you need is a spray bottle and you can dilute it with a bit of water if you like or just spray it undiluted directly on your strands.

The aloe juice reduces frizz by helping the cuticles to lie flat allowing your hair to appear naturally shiny. You will notice the strength in your strands after just one application.

The gel on the other hand is great for styling because of its composition, you can use to slick your edges, or create a sleek style but the value of the gel like the juice makes it just as healthy when used daily with the same benefits as described above.

We don’t know about you but it really isn’t enough to just say, they both moisturize the hair, reduce frizz you know the typical stuff, kind of like your average conditioner commercial right? We need to know whats in them that makes both the gel and the juice really great, well allow us to educate you.


Key ingredients in Aloe Vera

►Polysaccharides (carbohydrates) and fatty acids – Act as natural humectant that traps and holds moisture

On top of these few things we mentioned there are a ton of mineral components including, calcium, zinc, magnesium copper, iron and potassium that make this plant complexed and perfect for your hair.

I use both. The liquid when I do the LOC method and the gel from my plant on my skin and sometimes my hair. My plant isn’t that big so I can’t use it that much, yet.

Angela Wilkerson

The Juice!!! Mix with water and use as a morning toner after cleansing my face . It’s refreshing!!!!!

April Avery-Dennard

I just posted that! It really works well.

Pamela Smith

I use the gel as a styler because stuff like eco styler is too heavy for my hair. I mix aloe juice, water and glycerin together to use as a spray to wet my hair.

Malakah Angellia Gladston

The gel is more potent. What’s the point of using something if you’re not gonna get the full benefits? What’s inside the plant is GEL. They extracted a lot of things from it in order to make it into juice

I absolutely love that aloe vera gel. I’ve been using it to moisturize my face for several years now and also to slick down my hair when I still had a relaxer.
