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.

Eczema eyes is a condition where a person develops eczema around their eyes. This can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. So, if you have eczema eyes, you would probably like to find a way to clear them up.
According to health reporter cum writer, Janet Simpson, the ordinary aloe vera can be a great ailment.
The most obvious way is to apply Aloe Vera gel to your eczema eyes as the plant is an excellent moisturizing agent. It also reduces pain and itching into the bargain.
The not so obvious way is to consume Aloe Vera, that is taking it internally.
Why? Janet said:
Drinking Aloe Vera juice is a great way to help your eczema eyes heal. It may seem like an indirect approach. After all, gel is a good moisturizer and pain reliever, but Aloe Vera juice can do things that gel cannot.
For instance, Aloe Vera juice can help to naturally cleanse your system. It can remove toxins brought about by external pollution sources, as well as poor eating habits. If your internal system is healthier, your skin will be too, including your eczema eyes.
Aloe Vera juice also has ingredients in it which strengthen the elastin and collagen in your skin. Those are what give your skin its smooth, yet stretchy texture. By strengthening them, you can avoid signs of aging, such as wrinkles and also cure skin conditions, like eczema eyes.
Also Yulia Berry also written about Aloe – Your Miracle Doctor. Interestingly, she mentioned that Organized medicine and pharmacology have not embraced Aloe, because it cannot be patented and its usage threatens literally hundreds of prescription and non-prescription drugs
There are a host of other reasons why Aloe Vera juice is good for you. So, if you’ve tried everything else, or if you simply prefer to take a hollistic approach to medicine, try Aloe Vera juice. It is good for you and can help you to fix your eczema eyes and avoid irritation, discomfort and embarrassing situations.
