Aloe All-Amazing Hair Conditioner

Aloe All-Amazing Hair Conditioner

Aloe vera has tremendous moisturizing properties for skin, but who knew that it has the same for hair? It just may be the secret of the ages for the aid of dry, damaged, brittle hair.

Here is a formula that takes under a minute to make (all you need is a bowl and spoon), and you can easily customize it with essential oils of your choice.

If your hair has any problems at all, you’ll want to see this!

cup aloe vera gel (readily available in health food stores)
of a lemon
3-5 drops essential oils of your choice

Mix the aloe vera gel with the juice of half a lemon. Add the essential oils.

Apply to freshly shampooed hair. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

Well I tried this last night but I didn't add any essential oil since I like the scent of the aloe vera and the lemon, or is the oil actually essential? I quite like using fresh aloe vera and fresh lemon on my hair but it doesn't quite stay on your hair for 3-5 minutes, it tends to trickle down, of course it's all natuaral so no problem...

I can't imagine how many leaves off my aloe plants will be needed to get 1/4 cup full?!

Aloe Vera is a wonderful plant. Apart from other qualities, it is a beautiful plant to have in your garden.

Love this

I have an aloe vera plant that has produced so many other aloe vera plants that I have had to repot them and give them away. Now the aloe vera has again sprouted up several more individuals in my one remaining planter. My reluctance to cut a plant is due to my feeling a bit guilty when I do so for the sake of applying the gel to m skin...but, today I may just break off a tip. I live in a very dry, high elevation.
