Aloe Vera is universally known to be good or health but many people are unaware of the benefits that it offers the hair. The juice of Aloe Vera can be used to treat hair fall and to promote growth of hair.
There are a number of ways you can use Aloe Vera to treat hair conditions. Firstly you need to understand the factors that cause the loss of hair or scalp infections. A poor diet or malnutrition, lack of minerals in the body, an allergic reaction to some new medications or even a scalp infection can lead to hair loss. If this is the case then you can use Aloe Vera to promote hair loss.
Aloe Vera gel can be used directly on the scalp to prevent hair loss. If you notice a bald spot on your head then use Aloe Vera gel to help the hair grow in the area. The enzymes in the gel may even promote new hair growth. Applying the gel directly on the hair does not have any side effects so you can do so regularly.
As a matter of fact in order to gain maximum benefit from this natural remedy use the gel on overnight. Wash your hair a few hours before you go to bed and wipe it dry.
Apply the gel on your scalp and the entire length of your hair. Then tie your hair in a silk scarf and rest throughout the night. In the morning wash your hair with warm water; this will remove all the gel from your hair. Repeat this treatment till you desire or till the hair fall stops.
You can combine aloe juice with coconut milk and wheat germ oil to make a shampoo. This is extremely beneficial to your hair as regular treatments will show improvement in the hair fall as well as it will show signs of hair growing in areas that have bald spots.
In addition to using Aloe Vera topically you can also drink the juice to promote internal healing. The juice cleanses the system and flushes out unwanted toxins. It will help to get rid of any scalp infections that lead to the loss of hair.
