Aloe Vera Hair Treatment
If you saw my last post about aloe vera you might be a little excited about all the possibilities. I have been experimenting and came up with a fun recipe for an aloe vera hair treatment.
Aloe vera is amazing for your scalp. The proteolytic enzymes help repair skin cells. If you are struggling with eczema, dandruff or hot spots on your scalp you should give this recipe a try. In addition to the soothing and repairing aloe vera conditions and promotes hair growth. The hair growth is a bonus for me because I am trying to grow my hair out.
- 2 aloe vera leaves
- 1/4 a cup castor oil
- 1 tsp nightly scalp massage by Just Natural
If you don’t want to splurge on the nightly scalp massage you can add thyme, rosemary, lemon grass or lavender; all are great for the hair and scalp.
I combined the ingredients in the food processor and then poured it into a squeeze bottle so that it would be easy to apply to the scalp. I made sure to apply thoroughly to my roots then worked it through the rest of my hair. I clipped it up and went about my house work. Once I was done with the house work I washed my hair like normal. There were a few pieces of aloe vera that didn’t quiet get blended up enough left in my hair. They were easily combed out. This recipe was enough for two treatments and will store for 6 weeks in the refrigerator.
