The Benefits Of Aloe Vera For Natural Hair
Posted on August 07 2019
Oh hey curl friends!
I'm sure you have all seen your favourite influencer preaching about how great Aloe Vera is for natural hair, and be honest, we don't blame them.
There are so many amazing benefits Aloe Vera provides for our skin, digestion and ESPECIALLY our curls. The plant contains protein, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, calcium, folic acid and amino acids that strengthen the hair.
Aloe Vera can be use as a:
- Pre poo
- Part of a shampoo and conditioner
- DIY detangler
- Styling gel
Deep Cleaning & Promotes Hair Growth
As naturalistas, we are obsessed with length and healthy hair. Aloe is a natural ingredient that helps cleanse the scalp removing build up and preventing the hair follicles from being clogged. This is one of the reasons why Aloe is used in many shampoos on the market today, including ours. It ensures your strands remain soft and pliable without leaving your hair feeling stripped and increases blood flow, which helps lead to healthy hair growth - every naturals dream!
Dry Itchy Scalp?
With its fatty acids, Aloe Vera is naturally an anti inflammatory which contains glycoproteins. It is great for soothing, healing and nourishing an inflamed scalp. Dandruff is a fungal infection which can tend to make the scalp very itching, flaky and dry, not to mention sore and embarrassing leaving little white bits on your shoulders. With its moisturizing properties, this wonderful plant can effectively help prevent or reduce overall appearance of dandruff. Aloe also has the same PH level as our hair, so it has no problem to restore and maintain your hairs PH balance.
Repairs & Provides Moisture
For both hair and skin, Aloe is the perfect moisturizer I'm sure many of you will agree with. Locking in moisture it conditions our hair strand leaving them soft and shiny. While the proteolytic enzymes help to repair dead skin cells. It is also a great detangling aid that gives amazing slip.
