How To Use Aloe Vera Juice Mixture For Natural Hair Growth!
You have most likely seen the aloe plant before with its thick leaves and small sharp spikes.
Inside the leaves is a gel-like substance that is used in beauty products, juices, and natural medicines.
Aloe vera is grown wildly in tropical climates worldwide; its cool consistency is a great survival tool for calming down any skin irritations–hence why aloe vera gels are used to soothe sunburns.
Aloe vera juice is also very popular in China as a way to naturally cleanse the body.
For hair growth
You can buy and grow the plant yourself to extract the gel substance, or you can buy the gel and juice in your local health stores.
The main cause of your natural hair not growing is due to the pores and hair follicles on your scalp being clogged by dead skin and product build-up.
Aloe Vera contains enzymes that actually remove the dead cells from the scalp allowing for your hair to grow freely! The enzymes also help to give your scalp a boost in stimulation and balance out the hair’s pH to help retain moisture.
For moisturizing dry hair
Along with scalp repairing enzymes, aloe vera is also packed with amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to help nourish the skin and hair.
Buying the ingredient in a liquid form is a great way to get moisture into the hair whilst wet. I love using aloe vera as a sealant especially during the summer months!
For an irritated scalp
Probably one of the best uses you will get out of aloe vera is its ability to rid the scalp of bacteria, fungus, and irritation.
The cooling sensation and moisture of aloe vera can soothe and treat sunburn and dry skin on the scalp.
Simply massage the gel or liquid form directly onto the scalp before washing or throughout the day when you feel any irritation.
For natural hairstyles
Aloe vera can be used as a styling product to add shine to the hair once conditioned.
You can seal after a wash-and-go with aloe vera in the summer to protect and add a glisten to your curls!
You can also use the gel form for definition, but test if it will work better alone or cocktail with your favorite leave-in/styler.
The ingredient works great as a detangler, thanks to its liquid texture you can mix it well with water and oils, apply some of the Aloe juice in a spray bottle and spritz the hair section by section before detangling.
Great ways to use Aloe Vera on your natural hair
Use aloe vera gel as a pre-shampoo treatment to reduce buildup dandruff. Aloe vera’s natural enzymes destroy the excessive dead skin cells and fungus that leads to dandruff (malassezia) while also leaving the scalp’s pH level balanced and hair moisturized.
Apply to your scalp as a treatment before your wash and give yourself a fresh start!
Massage the gel into your scalp and leave it for ten minutes, then rinse before shampooing or co-washing as usual.
You can also use aloe vera juice to the same end. For a lighter pre-shampoo treatment, mix aloe vera juice, coconut milk and wheat germ oil.
Aloe vera gel can make a great moisturizing shampoo. Some shampoos (even sulfate-free shampoos) can leave your hair dry and stiff.
Check those ingredients and try a shampoo containing aloe vera, or add some aloe vera gel to your current favorite!
Its naturally moisturizing properties will leave your hair strong and moisturized.
Products with amino acids promote moisture and condition hair types of women with tightly coiled strands since natural oils are trapped at the root.
Aloe vera has 20 amino acids! woohoo!
You can use a ready-made aloe vera conditioner or you can mix aloe vera gel with the conditioner that you already use.
Here’s a very simple conditioning recipe:
- Cut the aloe vera leaf from the stem upward
- Use a spoon to remove all the gel
- Apply it to damp hair, starting at the scalp and working your way down to the ends
- Wrap your hair in a warm, damp towel and let the treatment sink in for at least 15 minutes
- Wash your hair as usual after the treatment
4. Aloe Vera Gel
You can use aloe vera gel to define and moisturize your curls simultaneously.
Defined curls always look the best when they are conditioned well.
this may not work for ladies with type 4 hair so test on a small section of hair first to see if you like it.
- Apply a small amount of aloe vera gel to your hands after washing and conditioning
- Scrunch it into wet hair just before your go-to styler or gel
If you are looking for natural detangling products combine the following ingredients in a spray bottle:
- 8 oz distilled water
- 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
- 1-2 drops glycerin
- 1-2 drops essential oil (e.g., lavender, jojoba)
- 10-15 drops grapefruit seed extract
Then section the hair and apply the mixture to each section as you detangle.
6. Hair Growth
The enzymes in aloe vera will attack skin cells clogging your hair follicles leaving moisture and shine.
While helping to unclog your follicles the nutrients that promote hair growth can do their thing.
All about Aloe Vera Juice Vs. Gel
When it comes to these two, both are effective for healing the scalp and repairing and conditioning the hair.
Aloe gel and juice come from different parts of the plant but both have healing benefits.
The juice comes from the outer parts of the leaf, and the gel comes from the inner portion.
When it comes to hair care the main difference is that the juice is thinner and waterier than the gel.
So, if you want to make an aloe vera spray go for the juice but if you want to use aloe as a holding or styling gel, use the gel.
The juice is useful for spraying, and the gel is perfect when you need the thicker consistency to hold the hair. The best aloe vera gel for natural hair is one that is mostly pure.
Both can make a great addition to your hair regimen.
Great Aloe vera recipes for a lovely hair day!
2. ALOE DETANGLER
About the Recipe
I had to play with this recipe a while to get the amount of slip needed for good detangling. I’m still not as happy with it as I am with our store-bought detangler, but it does work really well. And if you’re looking for a way to save money on hair products, this is definitely worth it. As mentioned above, if the smell is an issue you can add essential oil. I don’t usually add any because I use a moisturizing product on top of this and I don’t want too much smell and/or for the smells to compete with one another.
1 cup distilled water
2 T aloe gel
4 drops glycerin
Put all items into an old shampoo or conditioner bottle and shake until everything is well-blended. You can also use a spray bottle, too.
However, I like my mixture a little thick and I’ve found that the conditioner bottle works better when squeezing it out.
You can squeeze it onto my hands and then work it through the hair with my fingertips. Then I detangle as normal.
Do not rinse it out.
3. ALOE DEEP CONDITIONER (MOISTURIZING)
About the Recipe
Pretty much the easiest recipe we have. This is the one that we often use for Boo’s hair, as her DC’s are moisture-based.
1/4 cup aloe gel
1/4 cup coconut oil, warmed in the microwave for mixing
Blend both ingredients together using the method of your choice.
You get a creamier mixture if I use my hand-held blender than my personal chopper. Apply to hair according to our instructions for deep conditioning.
