Benefits of Aloe Vera for hair


It is my firm belief that we have all heard of the magical plant Aloe Vera before. There’s a high chance that most, if not all of us have used it at some point in our lives. Yet some may wonder, what is Aloe Vera and what makes it so unique? 

Well, Aloe Vera is an incredibly medicinal plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family (lily). It is packed with over 200 active components. They include: amino acids, minerals, enzymes, vitamins, and polysaccharide just to name a few. 

These components and their numerous uses are what make Aloe Vera – Aloe Vera. In fact, different parts of the plant play different roles in improving the health of your body. Aloe Vera is suitable for both internal and external applications. Meaning, you can actually ingest or apply it topically.

One particular part of Aloe Vera that a lot of people use is the inner section of the leaf. When you slice open an Aloe Vera leaf, you come across a clear gel-like substance. This gel is known to play a very significant role in hair moisturizing. Another interesting fact about the gel is that it’s actually made up of 99% water. 

Given that people have been using this plant therapeutically for over 5 millennia, the list of benefits it packs is significantly long. However, in this particular article, we are going to focus on some of its uses in hair care. We’ll help you see the importance of incorporating Aloe Vera products in your hair care regimen.

Benefits of Aloe Vera for your hair

Benefits of Aloe Vera for Hair

1. Effective in eliminating dandruff

Seborrheic dermatitis otherwise known as dandruff is a dreaded condition which leads to a dry and rough scalp. It is notoriously stubborn and if left unchecked, it can cause tremendous amounts of damage to your scalp and hair. Luckily, Aloe Vera contains anti-fungal properties that fight Seborrheic dermatitis. They help counter the buildup or development of fungal environments in your scalp keeping it clean and fresh. 

2. Locks in moisture efficiently

Aloe Vera has an unmatched ability to effortlessly penetrate the scalp and skin. That ability allows it to play a significant role in replenishing lost moisture in your hair. It reverses the harmful effects caused by dryness while revitalizing your hair. Moreover, Aloe Vera’s moisturizing ability makes it an excellent agent in hair care products. Reason being, it assists other active ingredients to reach much deeper tissues.

3. Good for transitioning from relaxed to natural hair

Nowadays a lot of people are moving away from hair relaxers and are embracing natural hair. This is because of the harmful and synthetic chemicals used in relaxers. Instead of improving the general health of your hair, relaxers damage both your hair and scalp. Aloe Vera helps undo relaxer damages such as: Hair loss, thinning, and breakages etc. The nutrients and proteins found in Aloe Vera help repair and nourish your hair shafts.  

4. Helps clean oily hair 

Aloe Vera is very good in stripping off extra amounts of sebum or fat that weigh down your hair. Excessive oils can at times make perfectly normal hair look dull and unhealthy. In such cases, using products that contain Aloe Vera is the best solution. Aloe eliminates oils so gently, without hurting your hair or harming its integrity. It cleanses your hair follicles smoothly and gives it a healthier, softer and shinier look.

Apart from its antifungal properties that help clear dandruff, Aloe Vera is also very good at calming your scalp. In case you experience irritations such as: itchiness or soreness, Aloe Vera can help relieve that. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It helps alleviate pain and hastens the scalp’s healing processes by removing dead cells from your head. 

6. Stimulates hair growth

Once Aloe Vera has: 1) eradicated dead skin cells that clog hair follicles. 2) Locked in moisture and prevented dryness. 3) Cleared the excessive amounts of oils.

Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍


Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.

Product quality

Second time ordering from here and I have noticed the packaging has changed with the hair milk. Well mine came with a flat top lid that you press on one side to open. Prior to that I noticed that the milk is a much more runny consistency than before which I am not not pleased with. Also the rain juice when sprayed in my daughters hair. It makes her hair very soapy and bubbly which I cannot understand and also not very happy with. The oil I need to give more time. But based on my experience Im not keen on ordering in a rush...

best de-tangler

Is hands down the best de-tangler we have used for our daughter.


Just started using this in in my daughters hair and it is amazing. It’s not heavy very light and keeps the hair smelling great. Her scalp is not dry. Works wonders I will be buying again.
