Keeping up with silky, shiny hair and dry, scaly scalp is really challenging and that is what I've been facing for years. It's depressing as I have used tons of various oils and home remedies to treat my dry scalp, but nothing seemed to be helping. Sometimes when the scalp felt moisturised, hairs looked dry as dead while sometimes hair looks shiny but your scalp seems to be awfully drought, scaling with dead skins and falling as SNOWFALL dandruff which is embarrassing. Nothing seemed to work.
After of my long research on the Internet, I found peoples testimonials and their great experiences with Aloe-vera gel and how it benefited their dry scalp as well as keeping their hair smooth and silky.
Well, good news for me is that I have Aloe vera growing on my backyard, so without any second thought I started using it on my head. Honestly guys, I didn't expect too much as I've been doing this trial and error with many different home remedies on my head for quite a while now. But surprisingly I saw and felt the difference in one wash?!!! How crazy it sounds?! I literally jumped with joy on finally getting the right treatment for my head.
How to apply?
What I basically do is cut a full stem from the plant, then chop it in half. Size of half the stem is like 6 inches long and 2" wide, so it contains a good amount of gel which seems quite sufficient for my small head.
The other half, I freeze for my next use. I cut the aloe vera plant into small cute cubes as shown in the picture, don't peel of the leaf as it contains a Yellowish Gel on the sides of the leaf which is very beneficial for the scalp and we don't want to waste it even a little. Then apply on your scalp by making proper sections. Make sure not to leave any part of your head and double the amount of aloe-vera on the dry areas, it will help preventing the scaling of the dead skin that causes dandruff which ultimately leads to HAIR FALL!!
When you are done covering your entire head/scalp with aloe-vera; cover or wrap your hair with a shower cap/ plastic foil or plastic, whatever is available. Let it stay there as long as you can keep it on. Longer the duration, the better it would be. I usually keep it overnight and wash in the morning. You can do as per your convenience; there are no hard and fast rules.
I've been using it for a year, there's no side effect. It's 100% natural and simply the best for nourishing and conditioning your scalp and hair.
Are you a victim of hair fall and dandruff??
Well, don't waste time, Get Aloe-vera and treat it. You'll love the difference it will make.
Wash your head everyday to keep your scalp clean from any dead skin and dandruff. Use Aloe-vera once a week at least for good results. Use a mild and moisturising shampoo, I use T/Gel shampoo and T/Sal conditioner from Neutrogena.
My hair and scalp was naturally dry. Now it's smooth, shiny and silky. But recently I faced heavy hair fall because of my post pregnancy. I'm religiously using Aloe-vera gel every other three days to regain my hair loss. Masha Allah, its as usual, working WONDERS for me!!
