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!
¼ cup aloe vera gel (readily available in health food stores)
½ 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.
