Aloe Vera – The goddess of health, skin and hair growth
Aloe vera: the holistic treatment for hair loss and many health ailments
Aloe vera contains many healing properties and is an important part of a holistic treatment for hair loss. It’s an excellent ingredient to maintain a healthy scalp and is conducive to prevent hair loss. For centuries aloe vera has been used to cure ailments. If you’re in search of a natural remedy for hair loss try applying aloe vera and you’ll begin to see results after a few months of consistent use.
Aloe Vera gel consists of 96% of water, 18 amino-acids, choline, niacinamide, and over 200 invigorating phytonutrients that heal many skin conditions. Aloe Vera can penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and is an excellent moisturiser that can remove dead skin cells, counteract free-radicals and prevents signs of ageing.
Eliminate seborrhoea and dandruff with Aloe Vera
Aloe vera also helps eliminate seborrhoea and dandruff. It stimulates hair growth, unclogs hair pores, and keeps scalp and hair moisturised. You can also use aloe vera to balance the pH of hair and to improve its appearance.
Aloe Vera is a plant with a history of healing for many centuries. Deep inside the plant lies a nutrient-rich gel that can be used in all types of skin and haircare products.
Its inner gel contains amino acids, minerals, enzymes and essential fatty acids that heal. The main compound of the aloe juice, mucopolysaccharides, are one of the primary substances of the fillers of the spaces between the human cells in our bodies – like a mortar that binds humans’ cells. When it receives this mortar continuously the body’s toxic waste eliminates and regenerates.
Strengthen your immunity with Polyuronide, a compound of the Aloe Vera Plant
Polyuronide belongs to the group of polysaccharides and scientific research proves that this compound is one of the most important substances for our immune system; it’s no wonder that this plant is called the gift of Venus, Goddess of Love!
Aloe vera is also a key ingredient in combatting hair loss, and I use it for my natural hair care routine regularly.
How Aloe Vera can help combat hair loss
I like Aloe Vera, not just for its ability to heal and potency, but also because it’s so inexpensive and accessible. In case you live in sunnier climes, you could even grow it yourself in your garden! Aloe Vera stops hair loss, feeds the scalp and hair follicles, thus stimulating the growth of hair.
Aloe Vera can be used to treat dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis (chronic itchy skin condition). With these health conditions, the pores of the scalp can often get clogged, which creates a myriad of problems related to thinning hair and hair loss. When your pores are clogged, hair oils cannot reach the hair, so it becomes weak, and it breaks off. Aloe vera treats conditions that clog the scalp. It also balances the oils on the scalp ensuring that sebum oils can be excreted and that they can flow along the full length of your locks.
Choline Salicylate is the main ingredient in aloe vera, which has potent anti-inflammatory properties. As aloe vera is applied to the hair, it heals irritations and reduces pain and swelling. Another substantial property of aloe vera is Mucopolysaccharide. It is rich in chondroitin sulphate, which naturally heals wounds. It also moisturises and helps improve circulation of blood flow to the scalp.
Leave aloe vera on your hair for just 45 minutes, and you’ll see some of these benefits almost instantly. As with most treatments, you must apply aloe vera consistently over time to see its benefits. A one-time application will only have temporary advantages, if at all. After about three weeks, you will begin to experience relief from scalp conditions. With continued use, your scalp should clear up and hair will start to re-grow.
NOTE: Since going completely natural with my haircare and making some small lifestyle changes I can see new hairs shooting like grass through my scalp. I use my homemade aloe vera serum at least once a week.
Remember – always treat whatever underlying condition might have caused your hair loss first. As discussed before, this could be a host of things such as stress, infection, illness, and a lack of nutrition. After a few months of using aloe vera you should begin to see some regrowth. As the scalp regains its health, your hair will start to grow back.
