How to Extract
To remove the juice or gel from an aloe vera plant, cut off a mature leaf with a sharp knife. Then remove the spiked edges and slice the leaf open. Use a spoon to scoop out all of the gel. To release the juice, break the leaf and squeeze it into a cup. Aloe vera juice or gel can also be purchased at health food stores.
Instead of using your regular conditioner use 1/4 cup aloe gel and combine with olive oil. Mix in a few drops of your favorite essential oil(s) for fragrance. Finally, apply to your hair after shampooing, leaving it on for three to five minutes then rise.
Leave aloe vera juice in your hair overnight to receive maximum hydration. For extra conditioning and to soften, you can mix it with olive or avocado oil. Wet your hair with the mixture follow by putting your hair in a shower cap and then drift off to sleep. When you wake up in the morning rinse well if you used pure aloe juice. Shampoo and condition your hair if you added oils.
The benefits of aloe vera are still being researched, but it contains two substances called “macrophages” and “superoxide dismutases”–both of which have been considered as possible hair growth stimulators. Anti-inflammatory properties of aloe are wonderful for inflamed follicles, and the plant is so soothing that there’s no harm trying it out. Apply aloe vera juice or gel directly to the scalp and massage it in. Leave it on for a few hours or overnight, and keep an eye out for new hair growth.
Aloe vera works to prevent or cure dandruff. Administer the juice or gel directly to your scalp, and rub it in well. You can also add a few drops of tea tree oil for extra potency. Leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse out. Repeat this several times a week for about two weeks, or until the problem goes away.
The juice is soothing for itchy, irritated or sunburned scalps. Apply it directly onto hair. Rub it gently into the scalp, leave in until irritation stops then rinse. Reapply whenever the irritation resurface.
Furthermore, aloe vera juice is an astringent which can become drying if left in contact with the scalp for long periods of time. Use aloe vera juice as a conditioning treatment then wash out. If you choose to leave it in the hair be sure to mix the aloe vera juice with oil before applying. Oil seems to balance out the drying effect of aloe.
