Referring to my previous post Hair Care – Treating Dry Hair Naturally with Aloe Vera, I shared about using the gel from the Aloe Vera plant to create a hair mask.
It is really a hassle free recipe that works wonderfully for my dry and frizzy long hair.
I bought a leaf of about 35cm long from the supermarket and cut it in half. One half was wrapped up and kept in the vegetable drawer in the refrigerator for other uses. The other half was sliced horizontally from one end to another. I used a spoon to scrape off all the gel from the leaf. I took only the gel and not any of the green or yellow portions from the leaf. Next I put the gel in a mini food processor and blended it until it was very fine.
All the blended Alor Vera gel was then gently rubbed into the scalp and spread all over my long hair. There might be little bits and pieces of Aloe Vera but that’s fine because the result was totally worth it. I kept the gel on my head for an hour. Once the time was up, I simply rinsed off the gel with water and dried my hair with a towel.
When my hair was completely dry, I saw a gleaming sheen that seemed to dance off my hair. I could also run my fingers through my hair without difficulty. My hair was darker, shinier and definitely much, much smoother than before.
I have decided to apply this Home made Aloe Vera Hair Mask at least twice a week until my hair condition improves permanently.
Aloe Vera is a wonder plant that you can easily plant in your garden or even in a pot. You can use it as food, make it into a drink, use it as medical aid to heal wounds or like me, hair mask. Small wonder that people call it a miracle doctor
