Here is one simple way how you can use Aloe Vera for hair: puree Aloe Vera jelly-like interior in a blender (make sure to strain the jelly properly before using it, to avoid getting small pieces trapped in the hair) and apply this pure Aloe Vera gel on the roots of your previously shampooed hair and spread to the length; let it sit on your hair for about 10 minutes (you can put on a shower cap), then rinse and condition. The special substances in Aloe Vera gel can powerfully nourish and volumize your hair, adding shine and making your locks look like a supermodel hair. Aloe Vera also encourages hair growth, if used regularly.

      I usually love extracting the natural aloe vera gel straight from the plant, because I find that there are unnecessary additives in store bought aloe vera gel products. 🙂 xx
