Talking about aloe vera, the beauty believers will think about the sunburn-skin soothing effect as well as the recognized ability to treat acne. However, few have noticed that besides the great benefits to the skin, aloe vera is also an excellent hair conditioner.

What does aloe do with hair?

Similar to the way aloe vera soothes and moisturizes the skin, it also has the ability to restore health to the hair thanks to a myriad of beneficial ingredients such as antioxidants, minerals, fatty acids and especially the copious amount of natural enzymes. These enzymes have the ability to effectively moisturize both hair and scalp, not only help dry hair become smooth, healthier but also soothe the scalp, overcoming the itch caused by dandruff or irritation (which usually occurs in cold seasons or with people who regularly bleach hair). Nourishing hair with aloe vera, you will get the combo of the following benefits: silky hair, faster growth, clean of dandruff, and no longer itching.

How to use aloe vera to nourish hair?

After shampooing, you can use aloe vera gel as a conditioner or mix it with your favorite conditioner, apply it from the root to the ends, leave for 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly.


Because aloe vera gel is quite viscous, you should pay attention to rinse your hair carefully to avoid the redundant amount of aloe vera to make making hair heavy and greasy. Be persistent in using this “delicious-and-cheap” DIY therapy twice a week and after just a few weeks, you’ll find your hair smooth and shiny as desired.

Fresh milk helps to beautify hair effectively

Fresh milk has many benefits, it almost appears everywhere when it comes to health care. The hair treatment therapy using aloe vera hair and fresh milk is not a recipe that everyone knows.

Some small notes when nourishing hair using aloe vera:

  • Should use fresh aloe vera, remove the green outer shell, should choose big branches to have more “jelly”.
  • Leaving the juice in the refrigerator for a long time will not bring the best effect when using it. So no matter what aloe vera hair care formula is applied, you should use fresh aloe vera juice right after pressing.
  • Aloe vera is not only effective when grinding directly, but it also works when combined in cooking. It is very good for health to have healthy hair and skin.
