It’s green and pointy, so at first glance it may seem a little off putting. It’s slimy on the inside so using it might be a bit weird. What is this mysterious plant that seems to have taken the beauty industry by storm? Aloe vera! We hear all about the wonders it does to the body, but what exactly are its benefits? Keep reading and I’ll tell you about the four major benefits of Aloe Vera!
First and foremost, aloe vera can promote hair growth! Who doesn’t like a couple more inches? The enzymes found in Aloe Vera are able to exfoliate, or remove, the dead scalp cells that might be blocking the new hair follicles from growing. This works great in conjunction with our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum - allowing the hair to be able to grow freely and flourish! Both will have your hair growing like never before!
Aside from growth, Aloe Vera does a great job of reducing dandruff. Aloe Vera contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that can kill malassezia, a fungus that lives on the scalp causing dandruff. What can’t this super plant do?
Aloe Vera is one of the most effective relievers for many issues that can come with dandruff like itching, dryness and redness. Because of its antipruritic elements, Aloe Vera is able to help relieve your scalp from feeling dry and itchy. It can help calm inflammation and has healing properties that speed up this process. It all ties into Aloe Vera being able to help break down dead scalp cells while having a cooling effect on the scalp that helps alleviate itching.
Along with itching Aloe Vera is a great conditioner for the hair and scalp. Aloe Vera contains Aloe barbadensis leaf, a gel-like substance, which has many similarities to the naturally occurring protein in hair, keratin. This allows it to penetrate the hair easily. Human skin is able to absorb Aloe Vera 7 layers deep! Incredible! This takes conditioning the hair to a whole new level - keeping your hair healthy and strong.
As you can see, Aloe Vera is definitely a super plant! There doesn’t seem to be a problem it can’t fix. Whether it’s growth, discomfort, or conditioning Aloe Vera has got you covered. This natural relevant works wonders on your hair, and is a must have that you need to add to you hair routine as soon as possible!
