Aloe Vera Hair Care Recipes – Top 5, for Healthy Hair

Aloe Vera is at the top of my list of Hair Treatment masks. I love all natural masks, but Aloe Vera has an immediate effect on my hair, I can actually feel the difference right after washing it off, instead of having to use it 3 or 4 times like with other products that I have used, before seeing any results. The hair strands are softer and smoother and that is only the immediate effect, in the long run it also improves scalp health which promotes faster hair growth.

For Hair Growth and overall hair and scalp health:

The 5 treatment masks below are super easy to make and apply. I have set out the recipes, but you can mix and match as you like because these ingredients are all good for your hair.

I have made rough estimations of the amounts of each ingredient to be used, but remember everybody has different length and thickness of hair. So basically if it’s not enough mix in more, as easy as that don’t make it too complicated just go with the flow at the end of the day your hair can only but benefit from this. The first time is always trial and error but the next time will go better and you will know exactly what to do.

Just a Tipaloe-vera-hair-care-recipes

Basically all my recipes start with damp hair and 3-4 tablespoons of aloe gel and then I add the other ingredients until it is enough to cover my hair. Bottled aloe gel is thicker than the Aloe gel that you extract at home and after blending it is actually quite watery, so the amount of aloe that you use in the recipes will differ.

I really don’t waste time on measuring out the exact amounts to a tee. I try not to go overboard with the oils because it is difficult to wash it out of the hair without stripping the strands of all the moisture and ending up where you started. Once you have mixed your ingredients together start at the roots and work the mixture down to the ends, put a shower cap on for better results, the shower cap keeps everything else clean and mess free and also prevents the hair from drying out so quickly.

1. Aloe Vera Gel and Coconut Oil or Castor Oil

3-4 x Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel

1-2 x Tbsp Coconut or Castor oil

Alternatively add a tablespoon of honey to this recipe, honey helps in moisturizing the hair and strengthens the hair follicles.

Leave the mask on for an hour or two and afterwards wash it out as you normally would with shampoo and conditioner, you can leave it on overnight if you prefer it that way.

2. Aloe Vera Gel and Lemon Juice

3-4 x Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel

1-2 x Tbsp Lemon Juice (Take half of a lemon, give it one or two good squeezes and there you go, done)

Lemon juice removes the oil and product build-up on your hair, your hair will feel light, clean and refreshed.

Leave this mask in your hair for 30 minutes to an hour and wash it out with shampoo and remember to condition again because unless its sulphate-free shampoo it can dry out you hair.

3.Aloe Vera Gel and Coconut Milk

3-4 x Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel

1/2 Cup Coconut Milk 125ml depending on your hair length.

Coconut milk moisturizes dry and fragile hair strands and promotes hair growth by strengthening the roots and ultimately preventing hair loss.

You can add a tablespoon of coconut oil for extra moisture. Mix everything together and apply. Leave the mask on for an hour. Wash out with shampoo and condition afterwards.

4. Aloe Vera Gel and Plain Yogurt

3-4 x Tbsp Aloe Vera Gel

Yogurt is full of protein, nourishing the hair strands and scalp, increasing the growth of healthy hair.

If you want to you can add a tablespoon of Honey for extra moisture and if you have one of these oils available you can also add a tablespoon of coconut or olive oil.

Wash out with shampoo and usually it isn’t necessary for conditioner after this mask, but you know your hair best so try it without conditioner the first time and if it doesn’t work for you try it with conditioner the next time until you can find the right recipe that works for you.

5. Aloe Vera Gel and Fenugreek

1 x Tbsp of Fenugreek powder.

Mix the ingredients together and apply to your hair. Fenugreek is really an awesome ingredient, it repairs damaged split ends, curbs hair fall and even prevents an oily scalp.

Leave the concoction in your hair for an hour or two. You can even leave it in overnight if you are up to it, remember you shower cap. Wash out with shampoo and conditioner.
