The Benefits Of Aloe Vera Juice For Natural Hair Growth

aloe vera plantThe nice thing about maintaining healthy hair is that it gives us an opportunity to live a healthier lifestyle from the foods we eat to our daily exercise routine. It is important to note that healthy hair grows with the right products, so today I would like to share with you what has helped my hair grow longer and stronger on my natural hair journey.

After careful research I found that the PH balance of black hair must stay around 4.0 to 7.0 pH in order to avoid the hair shaft from becoming to far alkaline or acidic. Having the proper balance with the hair care products we use such as conditioners and shampoos will make a big difference between our hair being dry and brittle or soft and manageable.

For me I learned that the use of Aloe Vera Juice can actually help my afro texture hair cuticles to stay closed sealing in moisture. Once you start your natural hair journey and transition from relaxed hair one of the things you will notice is that moisture is the lifeline of growing longer stronger hair and retaining length.

Avoid using products that will strip away your natural oils.  Once you use moisture rich hair products to seal the hair shaft your daily routines will take less time and your hairs luster and shine will last longer. Some of the benefits of Aloe Vera Juice is that it can be mixed with your favorite leave-in conditioner as well as part of your daily diet. Just add a few drops in a glass of water, in a few days you will see  your hair looks much better and your fingernails will start to grow as well.

The first time I started drinking aloe vera juice on a regular basis I was surprised at how healthy my nails had become, which is substantial since statistics show that our hair and nails are the last to receive any type of nutrients from the foods we eat. Adding Aloe Vera to your daily hair routine and diet will be the best step towards reversing the damaging effects of the sun, wind, and hard water deposits found in most metropolitan cities.

The use of Aloe Vera Gel for the skin is well documented to treat burns, abrasions and skin conditions but the juice can help with boosting the immune system and the anti-inflammatory properties can help with acid reflex as well as digestion. It is recommended that you consult your doctor before taking any type of natural remedies, make sure that any medications you are taking will not be adversely affected by the use of homoeopathic treatments.

Some of the more popular brands include: Lily of the Desert, Aloe Farms Organic, along with Natures Way Aloe Vera Gel & Juice. There are a variety of products to choose from so do your due diligence and see which one will work best for you and your hair care routine.

Restoring your hair to its healthiest is possible with the right hair care tools, products and education. Learning how to take care of your hair and knowing what makes it grow is going to be a lifelong experience and as  you come across methods and strategies that work document them and keep a running journal.

Just remember that what works for one person may not work for another, each of us has a unique hair type and the condition of our hair will be based on our genetics, age, health, and geographic location.

    Thanks for the comments, I have found success with using aloe vera juice, in place of water when prepping my hair a few hours before going to bed. I add some in my hands and soak the tips of my hair and then mix with a leave in conditioner as I put my hair in braids. I notice it make my hair soft and manageable and when I take my braids out the next day I have less frizz.

    Can aloe vera juice be used in place of water to moisturize your hair? I have been spritzing my hair with pure aloe vera juice (not diluted with water). My understanding of what you wrote makes me wonder if I am actually sealing moisture out of my hair instead of adding it. I spritz with the AVJ, followed by jojoba oil along the strands and seal the ends with castor oil. I wear my hair in twists as a style (rather than as a setting tool). My hair is fine (thin strands) with medium density. I’d say my hair is low to medium porosity so it’s hard to moisturize, it seems, no matter what I use as a liquid. I’ve considered using the S curl or similar activator sprays for my hair. Thanks for any input you can give.

      Lots of people use avj on it’s own to moisturize so that’s not an issue. If your hair is hovering over low porosity then really that’s what you need to be concentrating on and using oil daily does sound rather counterproductive.

      While I wouldn’t recommend that you stop sealing in the moisture, I would suggest that you work on getting that porosity issue sorted. The way to sort it out is deep conditioning WITH HEAT. It takes a couple of months, assuming DCing once a week, to see your hair start to readily accept moisture.

      Glycerine containing products will only be helpful if you are in medium to high humidity climate but it you are then I would pick that over the water and oil combo.
