Aloe Vera is a very multipurpose and versatile plant. Its uses for hair and skin care has been well known. Its benefits range from treatment of skin disorders, healing wounds, acting as a moisturizer, treating burn injuries, acts as a laxative, etc.

Does Aloe Vera really help in hair growth?

There has been no research study, which confirms that Aloe Vera indeed helps in hair growth. However, there are multiple other reasons why Aloe Vera is so popular. Aloe Vera acts as a natural moisturiser and conditioner for the hair. My own experience is that it leaves the hair smooth and great looking.

How to use Aloe Vera for hair?

Using the natural Aloe Vera plant would be excellent. You could cut off small pieces and use it for your hair and skin. I have described the method that I have been using to apply it to the hair.

  • Cut off a small piece from the plant and place it on a thick piece of paper. The yellow gel would ooze out of the leaf after about 20 minutes. It is not of much use to us. The length of the piece would depend on the amount of hair (about 4 – 6 inches long is enough for men).

  • Scrape off the thorns from both sides. It would prevent accidental cuts.

  • Make a cut in the middle with a depth enough only for the skin.

  • Now you have access to the aloe gel. Rub your finger over the gel to dislodge it. After this is done for the complete leaf area, apply it to your hair and spread it evenly.
  • Leave the Aloe Vera gel for at least 30 minutes until it is dry. Have a shower and wash it off with a mild shampoo.
