Have a dry, itchy scalp or lackluster tresses? Hydrate your hair and skin with aloe vera!
Aloe vera has a high water content (99%) that moisturizes and rejuvenates dry skin and hair with ease. Simply add store-bought aloe vera gel (or harvest some straight from the plant) directly to your scalp. You can also use aloe vera juice, instead. Just add it to your fave shampoo, conditioner, or make a DIY leave-in. Because of its healing properties, it acts as an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipruritic (prevents and relieves itching). It reduces inflammation and discourages the growth of disease-causing micro-organisms.
Aloe vera can also be incorporated into your skincare regimen. Aloe is an emollient (softens and soothes irritated skin) that increases skin’s elasticity by regulating oxygen and collagen levels. Want soft skin and manageable hair? Use aloe vera juice to create your own facial toner or hair rinse.
