Aloe is a soothing anti-inflammatory – if you have scalp issues, pure aloe vera can help to heal them. The same way aloe helps with a sunburn, by adding soothing moisture and taking away the sting, it can do so for your scalp.
The enzymes in aloe are great for balancing PH and for stripping away dead cells – think of your skin when it’s peeling after a sunburn. Aloe helps to soothe that dry, dead skin away. Many naturals swear aloe is great for a pre-shampoo to remove dandruff and dry scalp flakes.
If your current shampoo isn’t cutting it, you can add some pure aloe vera juice to it to increase the moisturizing factor.
I get such great curl definition – without the hard crunchiness – whenever I use a product based with aloe gel! My hair loves it.
