WHY USE ALOE VERA FOR THE HAIR?
A MOISTURIZING INGREDIENT
Goodbye dry hair and hello silky shiny hair! Like its cousins, the cacti, Aloe Vera tends to retain moisture, the proof, this plant is 98% water, so the little secret for a well hydrated and shiny hair fiber is to apply its Aloe Vera gel on wet hair!
A FORTIFYING INGREDIENT
Its jelly rich in moisturizing and fortifying powers, is the ideal solution against dry, brittle and weakened hair (by treatments such as Brazilian smoothing or daily use of styling device for example). In addition to providing good hydration, using Aloe Vera for hair helps give the hair fiber strength and boost.
A PURIFYING INGREDIENT
Be careful, even oily hair can wear down and overuse Aloe Vera. The gel of this plant also has sebum-regulating and antifungal power, which naturally reduces the overproduction of sebum and helps to have a cleansed and purified scalp. Using Aloe Vera for dandruff-prone hair is therefore the best natural remedy to adopt.
HOW TO USE ALOE VERA GEL FOR THE HAIR?
The pure gel extracted from the Aloe Vera plant can be used in different ways.
AS A MASK ON THE SCALP
For dandruff and irritated scalp problems, apply an Aloe Vera mask only to the scalp at least once a week. Apply the pure gel, line by line and leave on for at least 30 minutes. Gently massage your scalp with your fingertips to better penetrate the gel and accentuate the soothing benefits. Then rinse your head and move on to the shampoo step (made with Aloe Vera, that's the icing on the cake!)
AS A MASK ON THE HAIR
For intense hydration of your ends and your lengths, favor the use of Aloe Vera gel as a pre-shampoo mask. Put the pure Aloe Vera gel on your hair, previously moistened, and wait 30 minutes (see 1 hour if your hair are very dry), the time for the hair to absorb the gel, then rinse. Ta-da! Once dry, your hair are very soft and super shiny.
AS A STYLING GEL
After shampooing, replace your finishing styling cream with your pure Aloe Vera gel. Take a dab of gel and structure your waves with your finger. The beautiful, super glamorous curls are yours. And on dry hair, Aloe Vera gel helps tame frizz and wandering hair.
